2. Train to Busan (2016)

The Walking Dead doesn’t have a copyright on zombies. Train to Busan is a heart-pumping thriller following a group of train passengers during a zombie invasion. After getting stuck, the characters do… well, their best. As you can imagine, a lot of people die. But, if you love a good, scary zombie thriller with some unconventional twists, we recommend giving it a try. You can watch and record Train to Busan on Netflix using Replay Video Capture.

3. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

One of the absolute classics of horror film is The Silence of the Lambs. With amazing (and often terrifying) performances by Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, and Jodi Foster as Clarice, an FBI student interviewing him, it’s one that both haunts us and makes us want to watch more. You can watch and record The Silence of the Lambs on Hulu using Replay Video Capture.

4. The Addams Family (1991)

Need something to watch that’s good clean fun for the whole family? We wouldn’t exactly call The Addams Family a “scary movie” but it IS a Halloween classic that’s charming, eccentric and just the right amount of creepy and spooky to ring in the season. You can watch and record The Addams Family from Hulu using Replay Video Capture.

5. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

In the 90’s, video cameras were life. For actual filming purposes, we know now that it looks super creepy. The Blair Witch Project is a quintessential Halloween movie to really get scared about. Filmed in a mockumentary style, the movie feels just real enough to make you feel uneasy and probably completely unwilling to go into the forest after dark. You can watch and record The Blair Witch Project on HBO Go using Replay Video Capture.

6. The Conjuring (2013)

There are some scary movie series that are hyped up way too much, and then there’s The Conjuring. Starring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as paranormal investigators, let’s just say that a lot of intense, scary ghost activity runs rampant. Based on a real case in Rhode Island, these movies have just enough truth to make us want more. You can watch and record The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 on HBO Go using Replay Video Capture.

7. It Follows (2014)

Imagine being possessed by something that would kill you as soon as it touched you? That’s the main premise of It Follows, a more recent horror flick that’s equal parts supernatural and super nightmare-inducing. With a twisted way of contracting the “presence,” as well as getting rid of it, this one has an added layer of scary. You can watch and record It Follows on Netflix using Replay Video Capture.

8. Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Satanic evil and the fear around it was huge in the 1960’s, which really lends a hand to the huge success of Rosemary’s Baby, a 1968 classic. With Mia Farrow starring as Rosemary, the story generally follows a woman getting pregnant and having a child, soon to have a Satanic cult after it for sacrifice. You can watch and record Rosemary’s Baby on Hulu using Replay Video Capture.

9. Split (2017)

Here’s a new M. Night Shyamalan to add to your must-watch list. Split is a film starring James McAvoy as a man living with an extreme multiple personality disorder. After kidnapping three girls and holding them hostage, they must truly understand and even try to befriend the sides of him that could help them escape. You can watch and record Split on HBO Go (arrives October 28) using Replay Video Capture.

10. The Dead Zone (1983)

The Dead Zone is an absolute must for any fan of Stephen King of Christopher Walken. Following Johnny Smith, a teacher, who gets in a car crash and ends up in a coma for several years, this complex thriller is deep, action-packed, and full of special effects indicative of the early 80’s. You can watch and record The Dead Zone on Hulu using Replay Video Capture.

Netflix Conflix: Happy Halloween

Can’t decide what to watch and record? We’re here to the rescue! There’s no better time all year than the week of Halloween (yes, we consider it a week-long holiday) to watch horror films. On this edition of “Netflix Conflix” we’ve rounded up some of the scary picks that Netflix is currently offering through streaming that you should record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online – plus, you can keep them in your arsenal for next Halloween! Need help recording from Netflix? Just watch this helpful tutorial:


Fright Night
: Time has done this film well. This is the movie that re-imagined vampires for a whole generation, in fact, a generation that re-created the vampire into your worst Twilight-related nightmare. Regardless, Fright Night still provides something fun for everyone and we would also recommend the Colin Ferrel re-boot from 2011 that’s shockingly on-point with the classic.

 

Detention: This is a horror film with serious ADD. But its fast-paced wit makes it nervously enjoyable. Chalk-full of 90s / 00s pop culture references that keep it funny and on the comedy-side of things. No doubt, in a few years, this will be a cult hit. If you “get it” then you’ll enjoy the film — not a horror film for everyone and prepare yourself for a story that jumps all over the place.

The StuffIf you want something straight-up funny, make sure you keep The Stuff around for genuine giggles. The special effects are campy as they try to make infesting goo seem scary. (Hint: it’s not) But the acting is surprisingly great and there’s enough 80s ridiculousness to have a delightful viewing — you just might want to choose something other than yogurt, ice cream, or whipped cream to eat while watching.


All The Boys Love Mandy LaneThis movie isn’t particularly scary. But it’s uniquely suspenseful. The characters are heightened stereotypes and Amber Heard is (as always) pretty darn good-looking, but there’s something that keeps it all entertaining. In typical slasher-flick style, this group of teenagers is sex-crazy and totally over-the-top. Expect gore and an interesting twist at the end.


Hellraiser:
Since this was the first sighting of Pinhead, and created a franchise that lasts nine movies and almost three decades, it’s worth getting a look at just why this created such a stir. Sure, it’s got the effects of your typical 80s horror movie, but Hellraiser does an astonishing job with makeup tricks and in-camera effects that make it worth watching. Also, if you don’t think the zombie-corpse crawling across the floor isn’t freaky, then we don’t know what is.
