Netflix in October — Halloween Lineup

October is here, which means two things: the leaves are changing colour and it’s time for some scary movies. You’ll have to go outside to check out the all the cool colours of the season, but if you’re ready to huddle up under some blankets and dull your screams with some couch pillows, then Netflix has you covered!

Notable New Releases

Let’s start with a classic. The Shining makes its debut on Netflix October 1st. This is one of the most iconic horrors of all time so get ready to squeeze your pillow extra tight. Also, look out for Malevolent. It’s a horror movie about a brother and sister team who fake paranormal encounters for cash who find themselves in a very real haunted situation. That one comes out October 5th.

OK, so maybe horrors aren’t your thing. Not a problem. Netflix has a plethora of new and returning titles that are sure to keep you binging through the entire month. Sticking with animation for a minute, season 2 of Big Mouth is back on October 5th too. Big Mouth is a Netflix original that stunned viewers last season with its raw interpretation of teenage life.

You should also look forward to Apostle. It’s a dark thriller that’s not quite horror, but still fits with the month’s theme. The story revolves around religious cults and the main character’s struggle to free his sister before it’s too late. Season 2 of Hip Hop Evolution kicks off on October 19th. So does Season 1 of Wanderlust, which is a story of a therapist reassessing her life and marriage after a cycling accident.

Don’t Miss This

If there’s one selection this month that you absolutely shouldn’t miss, it’s 22 July. It’s a movie recounting the real life events that took place in Norway back in 2011 when 77 people were viciously murdered at a Youth Camp by a right wing terrorist. It’s moving, powerful, and will grab you from start to finish. DON’T MISS THIS. Starts October 10th.
