Best mystery movies to watch on Netflix for Halloween 2020

Watching mystery movies in October is the adult equivalent of trick-or-treating on Halloween. It’s fun and it keeps you guessing what you’re going to get until the very end.

To help you avoid bad candies, we have curated this list of some of the greatest mystery movies you can treat yourself to.

Below, we shared the 10 best mystery movies on Netflix for Halloween 2020.

Agatha and the Truth of Murder (2018)

Following the life of young Agatha Christie and her thirst to solve a murder, Agatha and the Truth of Murder is a must-watch, even if you are not a fan of the writer. The movie draws inspiration from several of Agatha’s works and surprisingly, manages to avoid mystery movie cliches. It’s simple but the storyline will get you hooked immediately.

A Fall From Grace (2020)

If you wish to untangle a conspiracy theory while being blown away by Crystal R. Fox’s acting skills, this is the movie for you. While the reviews for this Tyler Perry movie were mostly harsh, I believe you should give it a shot before making judgments.

Case 39 (2009)

Starring Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper, Case 39 is yet another movie featuring a demon child but it still brings in some fresh chills. The storyline is intriguing and when you’ve got such brilliant actors on board, execution should be the least of your worries. A social worker goes out of her way to save a 10-year-old kid from her abusive parents. However, she’s unaware of the other side of the coin.

Hubie Halloween (2020)

Netflix’s Halloween gift to the world, Hubie Halloween may not be as “creepy” or even mysterious as the others on the list but it will definitely make you laugh along the way. If you enjoy Adam Sandler’s work, you can watch this one with your kids and make a great day out of it!

The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)

One of my all-time favorites, The Autopsy of Jane Doe by André Ovredal makes your spine tingle without really doing much. The psychological horror film takes its sweet time to reveal the mystery layer by layer (pun intended) and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. If you can handle being a witness to an autopsy, there’s no reason why you should skip this.

Enola Holmes (2020)

With Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes and Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes, this Harry Bradbeer film does everything right. A story of a young girl on a search for her mother, Enola Holmes is entertainment at its best which does not let you down at any point, as hard as it might be to believe.

Zodiac (2007)

A timeless classic, Zodiac follows an amateur detective on a hunt for a serial killer. Since the movie is based on true events, the ending might not be as satisfying as you want it to be but that’s how real life is. The acting, the storyline, and the overall tone of the movie are so fascinating, you’ll lose all track of time and become fully emersed in this piece of art.

Oculus (2013)

Another gem by Mike Flanagan, Oculus brings plenty of horror sub-genres together. Kaylie dives into her painful past to prove her brother’s innocence and the presence of something evil residing within an old mirror. She claims that something supernatural was responsible for the murder of her parents and brings the mirror back into the lives of the siblings to investigate in detail. What follows is hellish and something that will keep you up for days.
