Here’s What Comes To Netflix In October 2018

Category: Entertainment,Movies

Netflix leaned into a Halloween theme for its October rollout this year.

More than a dozen spooky shows and movies join the service over the coming weeks. Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” stands out as the most notable horror classic; it’s being added Oct. 1. The upcoming “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” will likely be your best bet for a scary Netflix Original. That show joins the service on Oct. 26.

Many non-horror related movies also join, though I have to say the selection seems lackluster compared to previous rollouts. You’ll soon get a few cult movies like “Black Dynamite,” “Empire Records,” “V for Vendetta” and the first two “Blade” movies (inexplicably without the third movie in the trilogy). Netflix also adds multiple Adam Sandler movies to coincide with an Original comedy special from the comedian, “ADAM SANDLER 100% FRESH,” rolls out on Oct. 23.

A few other things I’m excited for: the animated comedy “Big Mouth” returns on Oct. 5, and an adaptation of the book “Salt Fat Acid Heat” joins on Oct. 11. September might have been Netflix’s best month yet in terms of quality releases, with the additions of “Maniac” and new seasons of “BoJack Horseman” and “American Vandal.” October seems to be more about spooky choices.

A couple other popular shows worth mentioning return during the month. “Marvel’s Daredevil” debuts on Oct. 19 and a second season of “Making a Murderer” also joins that day.

Netflix has a bad month for departures, though. Many of the movies I featured in a recent “hidden gems” list will already leave the service. The departures list includes “Adventureland,” “Boogie Nights,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and the show “Freaks and Geeks.”

Check out the full list of arrivals and departures below.
