Halloween parties and haunted houses, while great fun, aren't necessarily for everyone. Sometimes, people just want to curl up and watch a scary movie, or maybe their favorite Halloween TV special. With streaming video what it is today, most would expect finding something spooky to watch to be easy.

Unfortunately, the biggest service of them all, Netflix, doesn't have the greatest selection of Halloween-appropriate movies. It has some, of course, but not a whole lot. Then again, Netflix isn't the only option. Amazon Prime Instant is a great alternative, and typically has a lot of content that Netflix doesn't (plus, who doesn't love two-day shipping?)

What's even better is that this year, Amazon Prime is the king of Halloween, no doubt about it. So, if you're staying in tonight and need something spooky to watch, here are some of the best movies Amazon has to offer (the full selection can be seen here, including Halloween TV specials):

The Blair With Project
The Cabin in the Woods
Carrie
Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice
Evil Dead 2
Halloween VI: The Curse of Michael Myers
Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth
Hellraiser IV: Bloodline
Hellraiser V: Inferno
Hellraiser VI: Hellseeker
Hellraiser VII: Hellworld
Lisa and the Devil
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Wes Craven Presents: They
The Woman in Black
Scream
Scream 2
Scream 3
Shadow of the Vampire

There's even more if you're looking to rent something from Amazon Instant Video:
Frankenweenie
Ghostbusters
It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Gremlins
Hocus Pocus
The Nightmare Before Christmas 

It's a great selection: Cabin in the Woods and Hocus Pocus alone are worth the price of admission. So go grab some candy, light some candles and watch a good movie!
