Your new favorite Halloween activity: "Netflix and Chills."

The streaming site is packing in the spooks for the ideal Oct. 31 evening. If you're into films that send shivers down your spine, "The Shining" and "Sixth Sense" should be in your queue. But there are options for those who prefer the sillier side of the sweets-filled holiday, too.

Don't watch "The Haunting of Hill House" in the dark ... in fact, don't watch it alone. This bone-chilling family drama is a 10-episode take on the Shirley Jackson novel that documents the Crain family's horrifying experiences inside the Hill House and follows each member's struggle to leave memories (and ghosts) in the past. Horror novelist Stephen King has reportedly praised it as "a work of genius."
