Netflix and Chills

Netflix just announced a mind-blowing lineup of genre films, series, and specials coming to the platform just in time for Halloween.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And even though the apocalypse is keeping too many of us home this Halloween season, at least we still have the one thing that never lets us down: horror movies.

This year, Netflix is seriously upping its genre game with an outstanding lineup of chills and thrills from now until the witching hour. Whether it’s a call from beyond the grave or coming from inside the house, Netflix has all the hair-raising, door-locking, keep-the-lights-on treats to get you in the spooky mood this fall.

The spine-chilling shindig gets started this week with several killer new releases.
