Here's Where You Can Stream Or Rent Every Halloween Movie

It's Halloween season, the best time of the year. And with Halloween season comes the unquenchable thirst for all the "Halloween" movies, even the really bad ones. There's even a brand-new entry – "Halloween Kills" – on the way this month. So if you're hankering for some trick, treats, and/or Paul Rudds, I've gone ahead and put together a list that reveals exactly where you can stream or rent every single "Halloween" movie, including the upcoming "Halloween Kills." Happy Halloween, folks!

Halloween

Now Streaming on Shudder, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

The film that started it all. John Carpenter's horror classic remains just as good today as it was in 1978. A lean, mean, groundbreaking machine that helped influence horror movies for decades to come. Michael Myers, the personification of evil, stalks the hapless residents of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night. No one is safe, especially horny babysitters wearing bell bottoms. I personally think almost all of the "Halloween" movies have their charms, but none of them come close to capturing the magic of this original. 

Halloween II

Now Streaming on Fubo, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

"Halloween II" picks up immediately after "Halloween," and has Michael Myers headed to the hospital to finish off Laurie Strode. But first, he has to bump off a bunch of nurses and orderlies who are all hanging out in the most underused hospital you'll ever see. It genuinely feels like the place is abandoned, even though it's supposed to be fully operational. This sequel also makes the first of several franchise mistakes by trying to explain Michael's motivation – Laurie is his sister! What a (bad) twist! 

Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Now Streaming on Fubo, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

"Halloween III: Season of the Witch" is a glimpse at what could have been. Producers John Carpenter and Debra Hill imagined taking "Halloween" in a new direction, turning it into an anthology series with a different story each time. It's a great idea, and "Halloween III" is a ton of fun. Unfortunately, the general public didn't see it that way at the time – they just wanted more Michael Myers. And they eventually got what they wanted. 

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

Now Streaming on Shudder, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

The title says it all – "The Return of Michael Myers." Michael is back, and now he's after another family member – his niece, Jamie. While the "Michael targets his family" idea continues to be ill-advised, "Halloween 4" has plenty to love. It also has an incredibly dark, twisted ending that the producers immediately chickened out of to make the next movie. Bonus: the opening credits to this film, which show various autumnal locations as the sun sets, is pretty damn great. 

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

Now Streaming on Shudder, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

After the promising "Halloween 4," "Halloween 5" decides to squander things and become a rather generic sequel. It also ends with a truly weird twist involving a man dressed all in black. Who is it? Johnny Cash? A Blues Brother? The Undertaker? And who cares, really? Not me. 

Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers

Now Streaming on Paramount+, Available to Rent for $2.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

AKA the "Halloween" movie with Paul Rudd. In this notoriously chopped-up sequel, we learn about an evil cult that's been controlling Michael Myers all this time. Or something. It's not very good! But, like all "Halloween" movies, it has its defenders. 

Halloween H20: 20 Years Later

Now Streaming on Fubo, Available to Rent for $2.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

When "Scream" revived the slasher movie in the 1990s, it seemed like a no-brainer to apply that formula to "Halloween." The end result was "Halloween H20," which, despite its title, is not about water. Instead, we learn that Laurie Strode faked her death and has been living a secret life for years to protect herself, and her son, from Michael Myers. Of course, Michael finds out where she is and comes calling. And then he finally dies, for good!

Halloween: Resurrection

Now Streaming on Fubo, Available to Rent for $2.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

Just kidding! Michael Myers is still alive, and after seemingly killing Laurie in a truly goofy opening scene, he goes off to murder a bunch of annoying youths starring in a reality TV show set in the Myers house. This is probably the worst sequel of the series, and that's really saying something. But I'm sure there's someone out there who loves this entry. Maybe. Maybe not. 

Halloween

Rob Zombie took "Halloween" and said, "What if I remade this, but everyone in the movie is an abrasive redneck?" I think Mr. Zombie is a great visual filmmaker, but he's very bad at storytelling, and that shows here. To be fair, it feels like Zombie's first take on "Halloween" was limited by how closely it had to stick to the original film. Which it does, for the most part, although it also throws in a pointless backstory that reveals Michael grew up in a broken home. This seems to be a fundamental misunderstanding of Michael Myers – a character who was revealed to be pure evil by birth, not because of influencing factors. 

Halloween II

Now Streaming on Fubo, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

Free of having to recreate the original movie again, Rob Zombie has a bit more fun with "Halloween II." It's still not a good movie, but it at least has a vibe and personality all of its own, as things get extremely weird, Michael Myers grows a beard, and strange dream sequences run rampant. 

Halloween

Now Streaming on Fubo, Available to Rent for $3.99 on Apple TV, Amazon YouTube

In 2018, David Gordon Green revived "Halloween" with a premise that asked, "What if all the other 'Halloween' sequels never happened?" Laurie Strode is back again, but she has no knowledge of any of the other films after the first "Halloween," because they don't exist in this timeline. Instead, Laurie has become a survivalist who has alienated her daughter and granddaughter with her unstable ways. But as it turns out, she was right to be worried, because Michael Myers busts out of the asylum and starts killing all over again. 

Halloween Kills

Streaming on Peacock staring October 15, 2021

The newest "Halloween" movie continues the story from the previous film, picking up immediately after the 2018 "Halloween" ended. Once again, Laurie Strode has to deal with Michael Myers. And this won't be the last time, either. A third film – "Halloween Ends" – has already been given the greenlight, and is expected to open on October 14, 2022.
