Vengeful Binge

The best TV shows, documentaries and films coming to Netflix in October


It’s finally spooky season and Netflix has met the occasion with a slew of horror films and series.

The entire Halloween franchise – from the 1978 original to Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers is now available to binge watch. For younger subscribers there’s A Tale Dark & Grimm and Sharkdog’s Fintastic Halloween.

Perhaps most creepy (and certainly most exciting) is the third season of You, which will see Penn Badgley’s serial killer Joe embrace marital bliss – for now.
