Halloween is here, so you’re probably looking to watch Scream (opens in new tab) online – or see any number of other scary movies. Do you like scary movies? Of course you do. Perhaps you’re planning a Scream-themed party, maybe you’re just going to switch off the lights and binge the whole trilogy with a partner. Or perhaps you just want to plan a marathon of the best horror movies (opens in new tab), and Scream is – inevitably – part of that. Whatever your reasons for wanting to watch Scream online… we’ve got you covered.
The movies themselves defined teenage horror, along with the likes of I Know What You Did Last Summer (opens in new tab) and Final Destination (opens in new tab). You may already know the twist in all three, and you may already know who will and won’t die, but the films have held up surprisingly well and the original is just as watchable now as it was back in 1996. The trilogy is widely available as a box set, so if you’re looking for it, you can grab all of Scream for $14.49 on Blu Ray (opens in new tab) from Amazon US or £6.29 on Blu Ray (opens in new tab) from Amazon UK.
Watch Scream online – US viewers
The place to find all the Scream movies for free, in the US, is on the Stars (opens in new tab) Subscription service. You can get 7 days free on there, if you subscribe, and that will cover you for the whole Halloween period. Well done, you.
But what if you’re in the US and Scream is free in other countries? Maybe you’re a UK Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) customer and want to take advantage of your free Scream stream. Perhaps you’re from Canada, own a Netflix (opens in new tab) subscription, and want to access it from the US. The best way to get access to these regions is with a VPN. We recommend using ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), details below, because it’s the most reliable and secure of all the VPNs we’ve tested (check out our best VPN for Netflix (opens in new tab) guide) and it’s compatible with almost all the devices we use to stream video. You can use Express directly with PC, Macs, PS4, Xbox One, tablets, and phones. You head in via the app, set your region, and you’re good to go.
Watch Scream online – UK viewers
The easiest way to watch Scream online in the UK is to access it via Amazon Prime video. If you have a subscription to Prime (opens in new tab), simply head over to Amazon on whatever device you want to use and search for Scream. If you don’t have a subscription you can either get 30 days free, or buy one at £7.99 per month, which is pretty good value considering you get access to loads of movies, TV, and music AND you get free Amazon deliveries.
You’ll find the original trilogy on Prime, but will need to pay for Scream 4 (opens in new tab). If that’s your kinda thing. Ahem. Again, if you’re not in the country or you don’t have access to Prime, we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), as it’s the most reliable VPN and it’s compatible with all devices like PC, Mac, tablets, phones, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Simply sign up with Express, select your region, and you’ll be able to take advantage of your Prime sub wherever you are in the world.
Watch Scream online – Canadian viewers
Canada – you lucky things – can watch Scream online with Netflix (opens in new tab). On October 20, Netflix Canada added all three movies (again, are we not counting Scream 4? I don’t see why we should) to the service, so if you’re in Canada and have a Netflix subscription… just log in and watch. If you’re not in Canada, then simply use a VPN like ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), and set your region as Canada to gain access to the Canadian version of Netflix. From here, you can watch the masked teenagers run riot wherever you are.
