Halloween and horror go hand in hand, and to commemorate the occasion and the spirit of Halloween, Netflix is releasing five brand new horror movies.
Halloween is a time to get all dressed up where you get to use the last of your toilet roll as an emergency mummy outfit where you get just to stay in and watch scary movies instead. Because, as a norm, we all watch scary movies during Halloween and they are not scary any other time of the year. Additionally, if you don't feel like leaving your house to get to the cinema because you are trying to actively avoid the trick or treaters, Netflix is here to save you. The streaming giant is offering a whole host of frightening movies for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own house.
The streaming service announced, saying, "Something streaming this way comes… Netflix has a slew of NEW films that will provide all the thrills and chills you need to survive the Halloween season."

These horror movies ranging from psychological thrillers to all-out horror and Netflix is also adding some child-friendly Halloween films too and it will also consist of classics. The synopsis for In the Shadow of the Moon is described as, "A Philadelphia detective slowly unravels as he nurses a lifelong obsession with an enigmatic female serial killer whose crimes defy explanation." Then there is 'In the Tall Grass' and the synopsis reads, "After hearing a boy’s cry for help, a pregnant woman and her brother wade into a vast field of grass, only to discover there may be no way out."
