It’s getting to be that time of year. This is the month of ghosts and goblins and things that go bump in the night. It’s a season of scares, screams, and people going to theme parks to screech at grown people inside costumes. It’s a time for horror movies, so get a bowl of candy and let’s get scared!

Or maybe not.

When it comes to Netflix, October isn’t just a season for the creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky. It’s a season of elaborate heists, football games played by non-NFL teams, and Jackie Chan teaming up with Chris Tucker. You don’t have to just watch nothing but horror movies all month if you don’t want to. No one is forcing you. Actually, that’s what Shudder is for. But we’re not here to talk about Shudder.

No, we’re here to discuss some facts about the films and TV shows heading to Netflix this month.
