Do we even need to explain this one? It's a classic Halloween film, like Home Alone is to Christmas. It's not spooky, we'll admit, but it just belongs on any Halloween countdown. Plus, there's five of them to sink your teeth into.

Describing the franchise, Netflix said: "The Wayans brothers spoof some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters, including Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Matrix and American Pie."
