With every passing week, we are getting closer and closer to Halloween, you gory gremlins! Every week this month we are providing you lists of the best Halloween—or Halloween-related— movies and shows available on your favorite streaming services for all types of viewers. And this week, we are going back to the roots of Halloween: scary movies that will haunt you in your dreams! Halloween is not just for the kids, and if you decide not to get dressed up and go trick-or-treating, there are a ton of great adult-rated movies and shows available for you to catch on Netflix. So for this roundup, that is exactly what we are going to provide! We are counting off the highest-rated horror movies & shows for adults currently available on Netflix.
When coming up with this list, we strictly focused on movies and shows that were rated R or TV-MA. Forget the children, this Halloween is for you!

And if you are more in the mood to invest in horrors that will last past the holiday, then jump into shows such as The Walking Dead and Ash vs. Evil Dead straight away!
