Scream, Halloween, and more scary movies are on sale this weekend starting at just $5

It's the final weekend before Halloween, which means you have very little time to make sure you're prepared! Once you're done carving the pumpkins, figuring out your costume, and ordering a ton of candy (opens in new tab) on Amazon, it's time to add a few scary films to your movie collection. iTunes is having a Halloween movie sale (opens in new tab) this weekend with prices starting at just $5. Many of the options in the sale are classic or recently popularized films, while there are quite a few you likely haven't heard of either. At just $5, why not take a chance on a few new films while you're at it? It beats spending $30+ at the theater on a ticket and concessions.

Now that the Apple TV app is available on Roku and Fire TV devices, it's easier than ever to watch films and TV shows purchased from iTunes. Previously, you'd need an Apple TV device to watch films purchased via iTunes, though these tend to be some of the most expensive streaming media devices available currently. Movies Anywhere is also an option, albeit with some sacrifices, which allows you to consolidate your digital libraries across retailers so that films would be shared between each account, though there is a moderate portion of films which are not eligible for the program. No TV shows are eligible for Movies Anywhere either.
