There’s nothing quite like nestling into your couch with a cozy sweater, your favorite pumpkin-themed drink, and a great scary movie. Luckily Netflix is offering a solid slate of new horror movies and shows to stream all throughout the month of October as part of their Netflix and Chills lineup.
The slate includes a variety of different horror offerings. “There’s Someone Inside Your House” is of particular interest, as it hails from producers James Wan and Shawn Levy and follows a group of teens in a Midwestern town who are tormented by a masked killer. Directed by Patrick Bice of “Creep” fame, the film drops on Netflix on October 6 and promises “Scream”-like thrills.
On the TV side of things, the highly anticipated third season of “Locke & Key” releases on October 22, and if you have kiddos in the home October 8 brings the animated series “A Tale Dark & Grimm.”
And that’s not to mention all the existing horror content still streaming on Netflix like the excellent “Fear Street” trilogy and Mike Flanagan’s emotionally devastating limited series “Midnight Mass.”
