Whether you’re a Hocus Pocus fanatic or true blue to originals ranging from The Shining and Carrie to Michael Myers’ Halloween franchise, there’s something for everyone. While knowing your favorites is easier than finding them, we’re rounding up where you can find the films streaming mostly for free.
