Scary Movies on Netflix: Halloween Creeps Into November With These Movies

You can keep getting your spooky on even after the holiday is over.

Halloween season might end on November 1, but Netflix is looking to make November spooky as well. The streaming giant recently revealed what’s coming to the service next month and there’s a surprising amount of horror mixed — not that we’re complaining.

Right off the bat, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a 1992 American horror film directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, is coming to Netflix on November 1. The psychological thriller Cape Fear will be added the same day, and so will Cloverfield, the 2008 monster horror film.

And while the Scary Movie franchise isn’t actually all that scary, it’s still notable that Scary Movie 2 and Scary Movie 3 are on the list for Netflix additions on November 1.

Scary Movie 2 parodies classic horror movies like The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, and Poltergeist, while Scary Movie 3 spoofs The Ring and Signs, among other classics. They’re definitely more comedy than anything else, but sometimes people like a little humor in their slasher flicks.

Regardless, it’s odd to see so many scary movies coming to Netflix right after Halloween. Our guess, the company is taking advantage of bargain-basement prices, just like how the price of chocolate goes down February 15.

Speaking of titles that aren’t actually that scary but still seem more appropriate for the Halloween season than any other time of the year, Netflix is also adding Oh My Ghost on November 13. This 2015 South Korean television series follows a chef who gets [possessed](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OhMy_Ghost(TV_series) by a much more confident spirit, giving it more of a rom-com vibe that pure horror.

Finally, the company will add May the Devil Take You on November 15. This supernatural horror film tells a family drama with some seriously spooky vibes.

“When her estranged father falls into a mysterious coma, a young woman seeks answers at his old villa, where she and her stepsister uncover dark truths,” the description reads. Sounds promising.

Even though Halloween will be over by the time these titles hit Netflix, you can keep the spooky party going with a couple of the horror movies on this list through Thanksgiving, at least. Besides, are there any good Thanksgiving movies, anyway?
