October’s a good month for horror, and also a time for a scary number of original series and films on Nerflix.
Yes, the streaming service has Halloween-ready fare like classic “The Shining” and the new “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” “The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell,” “Haunted” and “The Haunting of Hill House.” (More on those below.)
But it also has fresh documentaries (“Shirkers”), adult animated series (“Big Mouth” Season 2), true-crime shows (“Making a Murderer” is back), comedy specials (“Adam Sandler 100% Fresh”) and dramas (“The Kindergarten Teacher” and “Private Life”) to keep your queue full for weeks.
