Stream On: New to Netflix for October 2020

Though Halloween might be a bit more low key this year, that doesn’t mean the season of scary is cancelled altogether. Netflix has added a few high-concept, A-list filled spooky movies and series to their catalog to get you thru holiday.

On Oct. 9, The Haunting of Hill House‘s successor The Haunting of Bly Manor will make its debut on the streaming service. Pulling from The Turn of the Screw, the Michael Falanaga-led series fill feature Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, and T’Nia Miller.

On Oct. 21, Daphne du Maurier’s classic thriller Rebecca gets another update as Armie Hammer and Lily James star in the streaming service version of the dark mystery.

And for the kiddos, Netflix unleashes its adaptation of A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting on Oct. 15 and Vampires vs. the Bronx on Oct. 2.

But not every offering is about chills and thrills, as Netflix also adds the sixth and final season of Schitt’s Creek. The Canadian comedy that destroyed at the Emmys this year will make it final showing to American audiences on Oct. 7.

For spooky without the scary, Adam Sandler and his impressive Netflix deal continue to produce movies for the streaming service with the Halloween-themed Hubie Halloween. Debuting on Oct. 7, the comedy has the funnyman battling monsters that threaten to take over his town.

And on Oct. 19, there will be a new batch of Unsolved Mysteries for those who don’t like to sleep at night.

Outside of scary offerings, Netflix also debuts the series Song Exploder this month. Airing on Oct. 2, the series will explore the story behind hit songs. Based on the podcast, artists will range from Alicia Keys to R.E.M.

Also this month, Aaron Sorkin teams with Sasha Baron Cohen for The Trial of the Chicago 7. Originally set for theaters, the high-profile pic lands on the streaming service thanks to the global pandemic.

And finally, while Netflix audiences might be forced to say goodbye to comfort watching Parks And Recreation for the 15th time, they will get to welcome back a few returning favorites, including the third season of Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts (Oct. 12) and features WarGames, Fargo, and Cape Fear (all on Oct. 1).
