Although Halloween lurks just around the shadowy, cobweb-draped corner, horror movies aren’t for everyone. Maybe you don’t enjoy feeling scared or you simply aren’t into the dulcet tones of soundtracks that are heavy on the nails-on-a-chalkboard sound. Luckily, if this applies to you, there’s no need to feel left out of the festive Halloween spirit. The horror-comedy genre has never been more booming, between TV shows like Scream Queens and Ash vs Evil Dead. This Hallow’s Eve, if you’d rather stay away from parties, séances, Great Pumpkin vigils, and horror movies, there’s no reason why you can’t still celebrate. Here are the best movies currently streaming on Netflix that provide absurdity along with their gore and thrills.

1. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Too many horror movies repeat this tiresome formula: A group of hot, young coeds take a weekend retreat to a cabin in the woods, where evil shenanigans ensue. We all know the touchstones: On the way, they will obviously encounter a deranged gas station attendant in the nearest town, and they will be threatened by evil hillbilly townies. But Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a wickedly clever classic that turns that concept on its head. Here, thanks to a series of honest misunderstandings, the “hillbilly townies” are the victims of the hot vacationing co-eds. Every trope you’re sick of is acknowledged in a devious, hilarious, and surprisingly warmhearted way. This one is a must-watch.

2. Scream 2

Though horror movie sequels are usually quite bad (see: I Still Know What You Did Last Summer or Wrong Turn 2: Dead End), the consistently self-aware Scream franchise uses this to its advantage. Just like 22 Jump Street did in comedy, Scream 2 provides its first film with a shockingly good follow-up that doesn’t make you regret the first.

3. All three Sharknados

Syfy original movies are an art form. There’s Frankenfish, which is exactly what it sounds like; Ice Spiders, which features protagonist who is an Olympic skier named Dash Dashiel; the classic Bruce Campbell film Alien Apocalypse; Shark Attack III: Megladon, which contains this gem of a scene; and Yeti, which contains a scene in which one character uses a severed arm as a splint. Then there is the Sharknado franchise, which is in a class all by itself. In essence, the Syfy network threw up its hands and said, “Let’s just give the people what they want. No need to dress up the name and packaging.”

4. The Wicker Man

This 2006 remake of a 1973 cult classic is technically a straight horror movie, but it stars Nicholas Cage. Enough said.

5. Zombeavers

The title of this movie is fairly self-explanatory, but if you haven’t seen it, you probably don’t know that John Mayer is in it for absolutely no reason. Yes, the singer John Mayer, raspy-voiced purveyor of the Alternative Bro musical subgenre who almost certainly smells like he fell into a vat of Axe body spray, is in a movie called Zombeavers. It’s excellently random. Pay close attention to the very first scene.

6. Ava’s Possessions

A mixture of Diablo Cody’s underrated Jennifer’s Body and Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell, this film gives the “demon possession” subgenre a fresh take with deadpan wit.

7. Deathgasm

This film festival favorite from New Zealand is surprisingly cute, which is surely an odd choice of words for a film called Deathgasm. Quirky and self-aware; gory and absurd, it pokes fun both at heavy-metal culture and anti-metal backlash that assumes all metal-heads seek to summon demons with their music. Yeah, about that…

Marvel is so good at pumping out passable superhero sequels that it’s easy to forget what a truly good sequel should be. Captain America: Winter Soldier managed to clear that bar, but that was four years and 11 movies ago. Leave it to Creed II to remind us what we should be striving for.

Clay Pigeons are back in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale, and despite some pretty extreme map changes recently, the location of the clay pigeon skeet shooters haven’t changed.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 8 Challenges were unlocked Thursday morning, ushering in the return of everyone’s second-favorite form of target practice. (The Shooting Galleries were a bit more fun, so we put Clay Pigeons second.) So what’s the best way to “Get a score of 3 on different Clay Pigeon Shooters” for the Week 8 Challenge?

Did you all forget that Ryan Reynolds (and not Danny Devito) is voicing Pikachu in the live-action movie POKÉMON Detective Pikachu? Well, he is, and there is an honest to goodness trailer to prove it. Also, there are like five characters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the film, if you want to be technical about it.

Woop-woop! That’s the sound of tha police!” Or it might just be the sound of the police Radar Signs that have been placed along the roads on the Fortnite: Battle Royale* island for a new Season 6, Week 5 challenge.

Week 5 challenges were unlocked Thursday morning. With several totally normal damage-based challenges comes a new edition of the old “Flaming Hoops” task but also a fun new speed-based challenge that pretty much requires a Quadcrasher. The challenge has players “Record a speed of 27 or more on different Radar Signs” five different times. Is that MPH? KPH? We may never know, but we do know it’s gotta be fast.
