If you are looking for some spine-tingling thrills and a frightful ghoul time this upcoming Halloween season look no further than Netflix!
The Haunting of Bly Manor is a follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House, complete with director Mike Flanagan and certain actors but a whole different story, while Adam Sandler’s latest Netflix film Hubie Halloween is a comedic take on protecting the neighborhood from monsters. And don’t forget to check out Vampires vs The Bronx and Evil Season 1.
Not in the mood for Halloween? No problem. October also brings a host of new Netflix series (we’re particularly excited for New York City-set teen drama Grand Army), movies like Over the Moon and Rebecca, The Queen’s Gambit and Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7. Plus, the sixth and final season of Emmy sweeper Schitt’s Creek will finally hit Netflix next month, so you may as well go ahead and cancel your plans now.
