It’s October! We’re finally in the spooky month and, with that, The Hollywood Handle decided to make a list of the major releases in theaters and streaming so you can find out what’s worth watching and what’s not during this Halloween season! For which title are you more excited to watch?
Starting the Halloween season very early, last week we had the release of Saw X which is becoming one of the most successful horror movies of the year and also acclaimed by both audience and public.
As we arrive in October we have the release of The Nun II on VOD this Tuesday (October 2nd) and Disney’s Haunted Mansion on Disney+ this Wednesday (October 4th), the movie follows a single mom named Gabbie hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest and a historian to help exorcise her newly bought mansion after discovering it is inhabited by ghosts.
And that’s not all for October’s first week! The Boogeyman hits Hulu on Thursday (October 5th) and Totally Killer hits Amazon Prime Video this Friday alongside the release of Pet Sematary: Bloodlines on Paramount+, and The Exorcist: Believer exclusively in theaters.
After wrapping up a great first week for this Halloween season, we have the release of the release of Mike Flanagan’s latest series titled The Fall Of The House Of Usher, a contemporary horror series based on multiple works by Edgar Allan Poe, releasing on Netflix on Thursday, October 12th. That’s not all for the week as Disney’s new show, Goosebumps, releases on the streaming service on Friday, October 13th, with a 5-episode premiere.
After that, we don’t have any major movie or series premiere that matches the Halloween vibes but big releases like Killers Of The Flower Moon and Loki Season 2 are both set to release this month.
To wrap up this spooky season, we have the major release of the month: Five Nights At Freddy’s, releasing in theaters and on Peacock on October 27th, the movie follows Mike Schmidt, a night guard at a local diner, becomes troubled after confronting the truth about the animatronic costumes that reside: they aren’t just robots. They are alive. Will he be able to survive all five nights at this haunted diner? Or is something more sinister at play?
