Halloween 2022 is fast approaching, and while for some it means donning your scariest glad rags and demolishing tons of candy, others are content with sticking on a horror movie and calling it a night.
The best is yet to come for the streaming platform, which promises to add a whole host of scary content for the upcoming autumn holiday.
Whether you’re in the mood for horror, thriller or true crime, the streamer has something to suit every little monster out there.
First up for Halloween-lovers is End of the Road, a high-intensity thriller that follows a cross-country road trip for main character Brenda and her family. The family members in the New Mexico desert must protect their own lives when a serial killer appears to target them. It's released on 9 September.
Next up is Lou, which was released on 23 September, and tells the story of a young girl who is kidnapped during a bad storm. Her mother, played by Jurnee Smollett, makes a pact with her mysterious neighbour in a bid to find the girl and locate the kidnapper. Of course, it's never an easy path – and what ensues is a series of unearthed, shocking secrets from their pasts.
If you want something a little more lighthearted to get you in the spooky spirit, give Phantom Pups a go. Released on 30 September, the movie follows character Freddie, who alongside his family, discover a slew of ghost dogs in their new home. Alongside a new pal and his sibling, they discover how to help the puppies cross back over the rainbow bridge and back down earthside to be made 'real' again. It's all very sweet.
Now, onto the gritty stuff. An upcoming one for 5 October is Mr. Harringan's Phone, which sees a young boy who lives in a small town who befriends an older man, the mysterious Mr Harrigan (Donald Sutherland). Despite their wildly different backgrounds – the older man is a billionaire, for a start – they spark up a friendship based on their affinity for books and reading. Once the man sadly passes away, the child discovers that he is actually still able to communicate with the now deceased Harrigan through his iPhone. Weird, right? This coming-of-age story depicts a different side to lost connections, and is based on a short story by Stephen King.
Elsewhere the platform will see the release of The Midnight Club (7 October), season two of Dead End: Paranormal Park (13 October), The Curse of Bridge Hollow (14 October), volume three of Unsolved Mysteries (18 October), The School For Good and Evil (October 19), Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities (25 October) and, of course, Wednesday, which is still confirmed as dropping later this autumn (November 23).
