The last day of October is approaching and with it the American horror festival Halloween that is increasingly gaining a foothold in our country. We present you five delicious horror movies on Netflix to get you completely into the Halloween spirit.
Okay, trick or treating and children who go door-to-door in mass costumes are (fortunately) not yet a habit in the Netherlands. Nevertheless, the atmosphere of the Halloween does appeal and more and more themed parties are given. And why not? Delightfully dressed unrecognizably as an iconic ghoul terrify your friends; that is nothing less than pure enjoyment. Anyway, to get in the mood, here are five horror films on Netflix for Halloween 2022.
Delicious horror movies on Netflix for Halloween 2022
All horror films from this list were added to Netflix’s Dutch offer at the beginning of October 2022.
1. The Shining (1980)
We’re kicking off the Halloween list with the timeless classic The Shining, a nerve-wracking horror film based on the book by the ultimate horror writer Stephen King. The lead role is played by Jack Nicholson, who in his heyday delivers a masterful performance as a writer who slowly goes bonkers in an abandoned mountain hotel with a dark history.
2. Friday the 13th (1980)
Superstition nonsense? Tell the unfortunate campers in Friday the 13th. This delightful slasher film is ideally suited for viewers who do not shy away from the necessary chopping and cutting. Twisted Mind Jason Voorhees takes revenge on anyone who crosses his path. Due to the inattention of the camp leaders, he is said to have drowned as a small boy during a camping trip at Camp Crystal Lake. However, the man in the scary mask is very much alive and sows death and destruction.
3. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)
We’ve got a taste for it, so we’ll stick with the slasher movies for a while. Halloween 4 is another iconic horror film from the genre. Central to the Halloween movies is Michael Myers, the serial killer who also has such an iconic mask. This is also the case in part 4 in which he returns, as the title subtly suggests.
4. Scary Movie 1, 2, 3 and 4 (from 2000)
If you’re looking for a touch of comedy to counterbalance all the chopping and cutting, you’ll be in the right place during Halloween on Netflix. Scary Movie. This 2000 blockbuster also stars a young Carmen Electra. No more candy needed during Halloween. We will then happily continue with scary movie 2. After the success of the first film, a sequel was inevitable. Once again Anna Faris and Marlon Wayans play the lead roles.
And then came Scary Movie 3. The cast was given a major makeover and expanded with Charlie Sheen and Pamela Anderson. Enough material for a real Scary Movie marathon on Netflix during Halloween 2022. And yes, part 4 is also on it.
5. Insidious (2010)
Those who want to experience Halloween with a good dose of supernatural horror can enjoy themselves completely with Insidious. Nerves of steel are a must, especially for parents. Children who are possessed by devilish powers always do well in movies, just think the horror classic The Exorcist.
