Hi ONTD! So it's officially October, & we're celebrating Halloween ALL MONTH LONG! We'll be having either a Netflix Party with the Chrome browser extension Netflix Party, or an Amazon Prime Watch Party with the new Chrome browser Amazon Prime Video feature Watch Party both of which allows users to share a movie watching experience together....from a safe social distance.

I'll be honest, I'm pretty disappointed with the lack of options on both Netflix & Amazon Prime for Halloween movies. Practical Magic was on Prime before, now it's gone. No Hocus Pocus, none of the Scream, Halloween or Final Destination franchises films.....ANYWAYS

Which Movie Should We Watch Tonight?

The Addams Family (Netflix)
Cabin In The Woods (Amazon Prime)

When a man (Christopher Lloyd) claiming to be Fester, the missing brother of Gomez Addams (Raul Julia), arrives at the Addams' home, the family is thrilled. However, Morticia (Anjelica Huston) begins to suspect the man is a fraud, since he cannot recall details of Fester's life. With the help of lawyer Tully Alford (Dan Hedaya), Fester manages to get the Addams clan evicted from their home. Gomez realizes the two men are conspiring to swindle the Addams fortune and that he must challenge Fester.


When five college friends (Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams) arrive at a remote forest cabin for a little vacation, little do they expect the horrors that await them. One by one, the youths fall victim to backwoods zombies, but there is another factor at play. Two scientists (Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford) are manipulating the ghoulish goings-on, but even as the body count rises, there is yet more at work than meets the eye.
