New from Kevin Wozniak on Kevflix: Halloween Movie Guide: The Best Halloween Movies and Where to Stream Them

It’s the Halloween season, and with that comes Halloween movies. Though many love to watch horror movies during this time of year, there are plenty of subgenres of horror to choose from. Looking for a haunted house movie? A monster movie? Maybe something with a vampire or zombie? That’s what this list is here to help with. I have listed several horror subgenres as well as added categories like classics and kid-friendly films and listed some of my personal favorites of those genres. I’ve also listed where you can stream those titles so that you can have a great Halloween movie night.

Most, if not all of these movies are available for rent through Amazon Prime.
