10 Classic Horror Movies to Stream for Free on Kanopy this Halloween

Posted on October 10, 2023

While the last decade has produced some films that have the potential to join the canon of horror greats (Hereditary, Get Out, and The Witch come to mind), sometimes you need to go back and re-evaluate those movies that laid the groundwork for contemporary horror. While these selections may not have the polish (or jump scares) of recent movies, they more than make up for it with their eeriness and scrappiness. And the best part is that you can stream them for free with your library card.

For more great movies, make sure to check out the offerings of your local Library branch as well as the Kanopy app.
