Everything Coming to Netflix in October

Drama. Comedy. Documentaries. Horror. Animation. The works. While we’re all pretty much white-knuckling it at this point, having a bevy of streaming options is one way to take our minds off, well, everything. To that end, Netflix has released a helpful video that details every new title coming this October. From the majestic and soothing (if you don’t think about climate change) in David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet to director Glean Keane‘s gorgeous Over the Moon, Netflix has a ton of new films, shows, and series coming your way.

Halloween alone gets a ton of attention. Want a little Adam Sandler in your Halloween candy bag? You’ve got it, with Hubie Halloween. For those looking for something seriously sinister, The Haunting of Bly Manor will be more up your alley. Or how about Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight, a new horror film that follows a bunch of technology-obsessed teenagers heading to an “offline camp” and finding that there are things even scarier in this world that a Reddit subthread. His House, from director Remi Weekes, tracks a refugee couple fleeing war-torn Sudan only to find themselves in an English town that has something seriously evil lurking beneath the surface. Not gloomy enough for you? Try Cadaver, which is set in the “starving aftermath of a nuclear disaster” at a hotel you really, really wouldn’t want to be a guest at.

There’s more. A lot more. Barbarians takes you back to the battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD, where Germanic tribes desperately try to stop the spread of the Roman Empire. The Queens’ Gambit explores the life of Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), a chess prodigy whose skills on the chessboard are offset by the tremendous isolation she feels the better she gets. For something a little less serious, Emily in Paris tracks a young American’s adventures in the City of Lights as she tries to bring her “American perspective” to a French marketing firm. For something a little closer to home, Dream Home Makeover will satisfy anyone wishing they could magically transform their living quarters (and now, for many of us, their office) into something a little more livable.
