With Halloween on the horizon, why not catch one of these terrifying flicks?
Along with the increasingly cold weather and Halloween costume pressure comes a different kind of Netflix binge. In honor of the upcoming holiday, we've assembled a list of horror gems both old and new to keep you awake until November.
