For some reason, the horror section of the major streaming services is always pretty lackluster. You want to watch Nightmare On Elm Street or The Shining, but they only have Troll and Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver (which have charms of their own, but still...).

Well, we've made it a little bit easier for you to stream n' scream this Halloween by separating the the spine-tingling, the terrifying, and the stupid-in-a-fun way from the boring, the pointless, and the stupid-in-a-bad way – in other words, we've pulled out the full sized Snickers bars from the sea of Tootsie Rolls.

Everything is organized and cross-referenced in categories below for your spooky convenience... unpleasant dreams!
