It’s October so you know what that means: Pumpkin Spice flavored Netflix. Okay, no, not technically. But in a metaphorical sense, sort of: There’s plenty of good new horror stuff coming to streaming this month, including and most notably, the latest series from horror guru Mike Flanagan, the guy behind The Haunting of Hill HouseMidnight Mass, and The Midnight Club. This year’s model is The Fall of the House of Usher, based on the classic Edgar Allan Poe short story. Also quite chilling in a totally different way is Pain Hustlers, a new film starring Emily Blunt and Chris Evans about corruption in the pharmaceutical industry.

But this is Netflix we’re talking about, so there’s several dozen other things to watch as well. There’s also a documentary series on David Beckham, new episodes of Lupin, a documentary on the rise and fall of Juul, comedian Bill Burr’s directorial debut Old Dads, and a new season of hit animated series Big Mouth.

Here’s everything coming to Netflix in October 2023:
