Here’s Everything Coming to Netflix in October, So Let Watchtoberfest Commence

The bewitching season is finally upon us, which (or should we say witch?) means we’re all clearly just biding our time until Halloween. Fortunately, Netflix’s list of new releases for October 2019 offers plenty of ways to kill (mwuhahaha — sorry, couldn’t resist) time as you count down the days until that hallowed night of haunting. And, if trick or treating through the streets isn’t your scene, Netflix has you covered with a few Halloween night new releases, too.

The bounty of new TV shows, movies and Netflix originals doesn’t come without a few sacrifices, though. To make room for the incoming titles, you’ll have to say goodbye to 101 existing titles. Jennifer Lopez’s Unfinished Life is, well, finished. And you’ll want to make sure you watch Liv Tyler and Renee Zellweger in 1995’s Empire Records one more time, too — it wouldn’t be possible to watch that cult classic too much if you had all the time in the world. Go ahead and squeeze in another viewing of Gremlins, Pineapple Express and Snatch while you’re at it.

Come Oct. 1, you’re going to want to have a clear queue so you can binge-watch all of Netflix’s new offerings. Here are our top picks for titles to stream, along with the full list of arrivals coming soon.

In the Tall Grass (Oct. 4)

Kick off the calendar year’s most ominous month with this Stephen King horror novella turned Netflix adaptation. The gist? After hearing a child crying, a pregnant woman and her brother wander into a cornfield to help… only to realize they may now be the ones in need of help. The always excellent Patrick Wilson stars, so expect solid scares out of this one.

The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants Hack-a-Ween (Oct. 8)

Yeah, yeah, this is billed as a children’s special. But when you’re a parent and have to watch animated movies on an endless loop, you wind up with favorites. Captain Underpants definitely qualifies, which means we’re all looking forward to this new Halloween-themed film with our favorite underwear-clad superhero.

Schitt’s Creek (Oct. 10)

Let’s be real: The scariest part of this month is the fact that we’ll have to say goodbye to Schitt’s Creek for good. The horror! Seriously, though, why must all good things come to an end? We can’t wait to see what will ultimately become of the Rose family in the fifth and final season, but their exit will definitely cast a pall on our TV viewing habits.

Fractured (Oct. 11)

Raise your hand if you love Sam Worthington and would watch anything he’s in. Yeah, us too. So, you’re going to want to add Fractured to your list of must-watch Netflix movies this month. Worthington plays a man who starts to unravel after his wife and injured daughter disappear from an ER, and we’re already trying to figure out what really goes down in this suspenseful mystery.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (Oct. 11)

At long last, you guys, Jesse Pinkman returns to continue the saga started by the iconic-slash-infamous Walter White. You’ve still got a few weeks, so go forth now and brush up on Breaking Bad‘s final few episodes to see where we left the assistant slinger of Blue Sky.

Living With Yourself (Oct. 18)

It’s Paul Rudd, playing two different versions of the same man. It’s two Paul Rudds. Need we say more?
