Here’s Everything Coming To UK Netflix In October

·6-min read

We might not be as enthusiastic about spooky season as our friends across the pond but Halloween is still well and truly marked on our calendars. Characterised by questionable costume choices and eating too many sweets, for us the best part of this time of year are the spine-tingling stories that take over our TV screens.

While we're always here for the classics (Practical Magic, anyone?), October is the ideal time to explore all the new horror flicks on offer. Whether you prefer major jump scares or a creeping shudder, Netflix has you covered with a selection of toe-curling tales guaranteed to keep you up at night.

And for those of us who can't handle a scary story, there are plenty of other treats in store, with the platform bringing us multiple docuseries, reality TV shows and standup specials. Between nightmare-inducing horror movies and light and laughable comedies, there's something for everyone this October.

To check out everything coming to Netflix this month, click through the slideshow ahead...
