10 Free Halloween Movies for Teens

The covers for the movies Practical Magic and Poltergeist

Get your tricks and treats this Halloween by heading to YouTube and binging a few teen scares and drive-in classics. (Yeah, you probably didn’t know YouTube has a whole free movies section on their platform, but it’s true. Be prepared for ads, though.)

Some movies on this top ten list might be a little on the scarier side, so these picks are better for scary movie nights with the teens in the house who can handle horror films like Poltergeist and The Covenant. But YouTube has some not-so-scary options here, too, like Planet of the Apes for family movie nights with the teenagers in the house.
