If you are looking for something different to watch for Halloween, check out Fandor!

Fandor is one of the largest independent movie streaming services in the United States, so if you are looking for something other than the usual fare for Halloween like John Carpenter’s Halloween, Hocus Pocus, or Friday the 13th, you are at the right place.

So what’s streaming in October? Well here are some of the movies that you can find on the site.

Bug (2006) 

Bug is directed by Exorcist director William Friedkin. It’s about a lonely waitress with a tragic past who rooms in a run-down motel. Agnes is living in fear of her abusive, recently paroled ex-husband though her life turns for the better when she meets Peter. That all changes too when the first bugs arrive.

Lisa and the Devil (1973)

Mario Bava (considered one of the greatest Italian directors) directed this ’70s horror film. Lisa and the Devil is a diabolical thriller flavored with the dreadful imagery and tormenting logic of an endless nightmare.

Patrick (1978)

Richard Franklin directed Patrick, which is about a comatose killer in a small private hospital. When a nurse begins to question his condition, Patrick unleashes a psychokinetic carnage. Robert Thompson stars as the killer.

Nosferatu (1922)

Probably the most known movie on the list, Nosferatu (directed by F.W. Murnau) is one of the greatest vampire films out there.

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970)

While Bava is considered one of the greats, one can’t forget about Dario Argento either. The Bird with the Crystal Plumage is Argento’s version of a modern-day Jack the Ripper story.

The House that Dripped Blood (1971)

The House that Dripped Blood is one of my favorite anthology movies out there. This one is part of Amicus Productions and was directed by Peter Duffell. It’s about a house where all the previous owners died in a horrible fashion.

The Cabinet of Dr. Cailgari (1920)

The Cabinet of Dr. Cailgrai is one of the greatest movies from the German Expressionism film movement. The silent horror movie was directed by Robert Wiene.

Onechanbara (2008)

The alternative Engish title is Zombie Bikini Squad. Yohei Fukuda directed this movie about a cowboy-hat-wearing, bikini-clad zombie assassin. It’s a Japanese exploitation film.

Carnival of Souls (1962)

Herk Harvey directed and starred in Carnival of Souls. It’s a sinister tale about a young woman trying to put her life in order after she survives a gruesome car accident.

Santa Sangre (1989)

Alejandro Jodorowsky directed this story about a young circus performer, the crime of passion that shatters his soul and the macabre journey back to the world of his armless mother, deaf-mute lover, and murder.  In other words, it’s a very strange and twisted tale.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981)

Dark Night of the Scarecrow is a tale of revenge that is directed by Frank De Felitta. After a gang of bigots exact brutal mob justice on Bubba Ritter (who is mentally challenged) for a crime he didn’t commit, a strange apparition appears and is out for revenge.
