(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)
Welcome, streamers! I have some good news: Halloween is less than a week away! If you’re like me, you like to spend October watching as many creepy, weird, strange movies as you possibly can. As we close out the month, I’ve compiled a list of horror and horror-like films for your Halloween season pleasure. These aren’t the typical horror films – The Exorcist or The Shining don’t appear here, sorry. Instead, I’ve tried to bring you titles outside the norm, ready for you to stream whenever you want. Happy Halloween!
These are the best movies streaming right now. Let’s get streaming!

Carcasses maimed, mangled, and beaten to pulpy piles of mush by a cast of The Raid and Headshot veterans. Maybe a Ford F-150 sized “truckload,” I wondered? Not even close. The Night Comes For Us is a bloody, action-packed gangland punch-a-minute thriller that might as well be The Raid 3 based on style and body count. Tjahjanto kicks infinite ass and beats boredom into a sniveling oblivion.
