Everything Coming to Netflix for Halloween in 2020
All of the new horror movies and TV shows you'll be streaming throughout October.
Like basically everything else, Halloween will look a bit different this year. Instead of bar hopping wearing a culturally relevant costume or supervising trick-or-treating, we'll all likely be spending Halloween weekend at home. At least the streaming services are coming through with a bevy of spooky season offerings, including Hulu's now-annual Huluween and Netflix's stacked calendar of new scary movies and TV shows to make your at-home haunted celebrations more enjoyable. Aside from the slate of horror movies and eerie series Netflix already has, these are all of the upcoming originals headed to the streamer throughout September and October.
A South Korean zombie thriller about a man stuck inside his Seoul apartment building, desperate to survive, as a deadly virus outside wreaks havoc on the city and everyone in it.
A follow-up to the 2017 horror-comedy movie The Babysitter. While it's "a secret" whether the star of the original, Samara Weaving, appears, other cast members, including Judah Lewis, Bella Thorn, Robbie Amell, and Andrew Bachelor (aka King Bach), are back for more bloody Satanic shenanigans.
The ParamedicAvailable: Now

Oktoberfest: Beer and BloodAvailable: October 1
Make this Oktoberfest not just about good beer, but about some good old fear tactics, too.

Adam Sandler threatened to make a really bad movie if he was snubbed of an Oscar for Uncut Gems. Well, he was snubbed, and this could be that terrible movie. The goofy Halloween feature stars the Sandman as a guy who just loves spooky season a lot, but has to take on some real-life monsters himself when no one else believes him that they exist. Joining Sandler is Julie Bowen, Kenan Thompson, Maya Rudolph, Steve Buscemi, and many other random famous people.
