What are the Halloween movies?

Michael Myers busted outta Smith’s Grove Sanitarium (and John Carpenter and Debra Hill’s imaginations) in 1978. Forty-five years and 13 films later, Michael is a horror icon worthy of immortalization on Mount Slashmore (if there were such a monument). Here’s a chronological list of every film in the series—click the links to see where to stream, rent, or buy each one.

How to watch the Halloween movies in order

No streaming service has all 13 Halloween films. So if you want to stage a mega-marathon, you’ll need to use multiple streaming TV services and some video-on-demand (VOD) rentals. Use the JustWatch links below to plan your Michael Myers marathon.

Where to watch Halloween (1978)

Pro tip: Try watching Halloween (1978) with a pro. Esteemed author, horror host, and raconteur Joe Bob Briggs adds hilarious, insightful commentary to Michael Myers’ debut in Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny on Shudder.

Where to watch Halloween II (1981)

Where to watch Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

Pro tip: You can probably skip Halloween III: Season of the Witch when you watch the Halloween movies in order. Michael Myers isn’t in it, and it’s completely unrelated to the other films. Watch it later, though, since Halloween III has a cult following.

Where to watch Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)
