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.

Suddenly chased back out above ground, they must travel to the Global Seed Vault in Norway as a desperate attempt to secure their survival. But they are not the only ones with that idea… In the name of the greater good, our group will have to split up, play nice with the hosting military crew, and make sacrifices in a race against time.

This is it, the final season of Lucifer. For real this time. The devil himself has become God… almost. Why is he hesitating? And as the world starts to unravel without a God, what will he do in response? Join us as we say a bittersweet goodbye to Lucifer, Chloe, Amenadiel, Maze, Linda, Ella and Dan. Bring tissues.
