Cult classic ‘Halloween’ (1978) and its sequels are staples in horror fans’ October streaming lineup, but finding them all in one place online is a bit of a headache. That’s why we created this guide on where to watch the ‘Halloween’ movies and how to access streaming services overseas with a virtual private network (VPN). 

For copyright reasons, some streaming platforms have regional restrictions, which means you can’t use them outside countries where they’re available. 

You may feel disappointed if you can’t find the ‘Halloween’ franchise in your location, but the good news is that a respectable VPN service like ExpressVPN gets you past the blocks and into your streaming service of choice. Sit tight — all will be revealed in this guide. 

Where to Watch the Halloween Movies

The ‘Halloween’ movies are distributed across a number of streaming services in the U.S. and abroad. Some streaming platforms host several of the movies, whereas others only have a few, so you’ll need to use different platforms to watch all 13 of the movies.

To add to the confusion, the streaming platforms with ‘Halloween’ movies are geo-restricted, meaning they’re not available in every country. If you can’t get into a streaming platform for this reason, check out our tutorial further down on how to use a VPN. In the meantime, let’s look into where you can watch all the ‘Halloween’ movies.

Which Streaming Services Have the Halloween Movies?

This table shows where the ‘Halloween’ movies are available in the U.S. and overseas. Some platforms, including Plex and Crackle, are free, and some services have free trials. If you try to access one of these services from abroad but are thwarted by geoblocks, switch on your VPN to change your IP address (tutorial further down).

You can also rent or buy some or all of the ‘Halloween’ movies in many locations on buy and rental platforms like Google Play Movies, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Redbox (U.S.), Vudu (U.S.), Cineplex (Canada) and Sky TV (U.K.). Availability may vary by location.

Bear in mind that some platforms are payment-restricted, meaning you need a payment method linked to the country where the service is available to subscribe. If you need to sign up for a U.S. service like Peacock Premium from outside the U.S., you can get a virtual credit card like StatesCard to pay for your subscription. 

Is Halloween on Netflix?

Not every ‘Halloween’ movie is on Netflix, but a few are, and they’re spread across different countries, as we can see in the table above. This happens because distribution deals dictate where Netflix can and can’t stream content, so you might find a movie in one country but not another. 

If one of the above movies available on Netflix isn’t in your country’s Netflix library, you can use a VPN to ensure you don’t miss out. 

How to Access Other Netflix Libraries

For example, let’s say you’re in the U.S. but want to stream ‘Halloween’ (1978) on Netflix. This movie isn’t available on American Netflix, but it is available on Netflix in Australia. 

What you need to do is download a VPN and connect to a server in Australia to enter the Australian Netflix library and stream the movie. Your VPN connection gives you a new IP address in another country, and its primary purpose is to keep your data secure and private online, but accessing streaming libraries in other countries is a major perk. 

Where to Watch the Halloween Movies for Free

Some of the streaming platforms mentioned in the table further up are free to use (with ads) or come with free trials. Here’s a table for reference. 

If you need a VPN, opt for one with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

How to Watch the Halloween Movies With a VPN

In this example, we’ll show you how to watch the original ‘Halloween’ movie, ‘Halloween’ (1978), on Pluto TV for free with ads with a VPN. ‘Halloween’ isn’t in the American Pluto TV library, it’s in the British one. If you’re outside the U.K., here’s how to change your IP address to a British one and get into Pluto TV U.K. 

If you need to use a different streaming platform, connect to a server in a country where the streaming platform or ‘Halloween’ movie you want to watch is available. 

  1. Sign Up for a VPN

    Visit a VPN provider’s website and sign up for a plan. Most providers, including ExpressVPN, offer 30-day money-back guarantees.

    get expressvpn
  2. Install the VPN

    Download the VPN app from the provider’s website or from Google Play store or the Apple app store if you’re on a mobile device. Install the app on your device.

    download expressvpn
  3. Connect to a U.K. Server

    Launch the VPN app on your device and connect to a server in the U.K.

  4. Stream ‘Halloween’ on Pluto TV U.K.

    Launch Pluto TV, search for ‘Halloween’ and start streaming.

The Best VPNs for Watching the Halloween Movies

VPNs aren’t created equally. You’ll want to go for a VPN with an excellent security record and a proven strong streaming performance. Here are some options. 

1. ExpressVPN

expressvpn app uk
With its huge server selection and cast-iron security, ExpressVPN is ideal for streaming. 

Pros:

  • Excellent security features
  • Diverse server selection
  • Easy to use applications

Cons:

  • Expensive

In our experience, ExpressVPN is the most reliable and consistent streaming VPN. Its server selection is vast and diverse, which is great for accessing streaming services in a number of countries, and it’s also the most secure VPN on the market. What’s more, beginners will have an easy ride with ExpressVPN’s no-nonsense desktop and mobile apps. 

The one downfall? ExpressVPN is pricey, and there are much cheaper options available, but you can try it with its 30-day money-back guarantee. Our ExpressVPN review goes into more detail. 

2. NordVPN

nordvpn UK server
NordVPN’s NordLynx protocol contributes to its mind-blowing speeds.

Pros:

  • Excellent speeds
  • Cheap long-term plans
  • Very secure

Cons:

  • Challenging mobile interface 

NordVPN is one of the best affordable VPNs out there. It offers some very reasonable two-year packages and a diverse selection of plans (with 30-day money-back guarantees). Moreover, NordVPN’s speeds blow its competitors out of the water — check out our fastest VPN roundup for more on this.

Usability-wise, NordVPN isn’t as easy to navigate as ExpressVPN, especially when it comes to setting up advanced features or getting around the mobile interface. That doesn’t take anything away from this fast and secure VPN’s streaming performance, though. Check out our NordVPN review for more.
