I do love Halloween. I love seeing all the little kids dressed up and I love watching my kids get excited to trick or treat. This year my daughter will be giving out candy while we take the other little ones out to trick or treat. I remember when I was younger and before I had kids, I used to watch all the scary movies and nothing ever bothered me. I could walk through haunted houses and barely break a sweat. I don’t what has happened but I can’t even watch the old scary movies anymore let alone the new ones with all the updated special effects. So I have a list of some great Halloween titles from Netflix, some available now and others before the end of the month:
