Netflix Is Adding Some Great Horror Movies And TV Shows In October


It’s that time of year, and of month, again. October means Halloween, pumpkins and trick-or-treating, but now is also when we get to feast our eyes upon all the new horror movies coming to Netflix.

Of course, we’ll be losing a few of our favorites, too. When September ends, Eight Legged Freaks and Ghost Ship, among others will be gone. If you’re a fan of witches, cursed statues and Stephen King, though, then next month is your time.

For starters, we have 2009’s The Figurine arriving on the streaming platform, which is reminiscent of a certain Supernatural episode involving a lucky rabbit’s foot. It follows two boys who find a cursed statue in the woods that gives whoever finds it seven years of good luck, followed by seven years of the opposite.

Another adaptation of a King horror novella, In The Tall Grass, is also on the way. Co-written by the author’s son, Joe Hill, it’s touching down with a lot of buzz and looks to be another promising adaptation of the legendary writer’s work.

Then, of course, there’s House of WitchEli, season 2 of Haunted and much, much more. You can check out the full list of all the movies and series being added to the streaming service next month, according to What’s on Netflix?, below:
