Criterion Channel Gets 1970s Horror Classics In Time For Halloween

6 Shares

October is just days away, so it’s time to line up your month-long Halloween binge. (We started a little early.) And if you’re a fan of classic 70s horror flicks, you’ll want to check out the Criterion Channel.

The Criterion Channel has Texas Chain Saw Massacre. It has Season of the Witch. It has The Hills Have Eyes. Overall, the Criterion Channel is bringing 29 horror classics to streaming this October. 

According to the Criterion Channel, “in the 1970s, everything was wilder, weirder, and more far-out—and horror movies were no exception. In North America, a new generation of maverick directors responded to the decade’s heightened political anxieties and Vietnam War–era sense of disillusionment by pushing the genre’s psychological intensity and visceral violence to shocking new heights.”

The lineup offers both iconic horror classics and low-budget cult favorites. Check out the full list below. (All films arrive on the Criterion Channel October 4.)
