Netflix and Chills 2022 Halloween lineup released

If you’ve been on the internet the past couple of years, then you’ve probably seen the term, “Netflix and chill” and so we’ll go ahead and spare you the details of what it means. Netflix is capitalizing on the term and repurposing it to announce its slate of spooky titles from now through Halloween and the rest of the year. It’s called, “Netflix and Chills.”

With Labor Day in the rearview mirror, it’s officially “spooky season.” Netflix released its lineup of films, series, and children’s programming that will premiere in the coming weeks. From ghost stories and serial killer dramas to Guillermo del Toro and Jordan Peele projects, there’s something to watch for all fans of horror.

The lineup kicks off on September 9 with End of the Road, a thriller starring Queen Latifah and Ludacris about a family that’s being hunted down by a killer in the desert. Other programs in September include the film Lou starring Jurnee Smollett and Allison Janney as well as the children’s series Phanton Pups.

The frights are kicked up a notch in October with the film Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, which is based on the novella from Stephen King. Mike Flanagan, the creator of The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass, returns to Netflix with another horror series titled, The Midnight Club. Both Del Toro and Peele will release their projects, Cabinet of Curiosities and Wendell & Wild, in October. The Good Nurse, which stars Oscar-winners Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne about a nurse-turned-serial killer, also premieres in October.

The scares don’t end at Halloween. Capturing the Killer Nurse, which is based on the same person played by Redmayne, arrives a few weeks later in November. Plus, a gigantic creature awakens in Norway and will wreak havoc on the surrounding towns in Troll, coming December 1. Also, look out for the Wednesday Addams series starring Jenna Ortega coming this fall.

Forget Netflix and chill: This is the best streaming service for binge watching on weekends
Jonah Ray peers out a doorway in Destroy All Neighbors.

Netflix was at the forefront of the streaming boom, so it's only natural that it has become most consumers' go-to streaming service. While Netflix has built a film and TV pipeline over the years that has resulted in a near-constant stream of new originals, its brand identity has only grown increasingly diluted. Its output has become so wide-ranging and uneven that, although it may still be the most popular streaming service, whether or not it holds the title of the best is less clear. The non-curated nature of its new releases and its loss of most of the legacy titles that brought so many subscribers to its platform in the first place have made Netflix a less dependable source for your weekend entertainment than it once was.

So where should you go when you want something new to watch from the comfort of your own home on a quiet Friday or Saturday night — or even a lazy Sunday afternoon? Max, Peacock, Paramount+, and Hulu all have better libraries of classic movies and TV shows than Netflix. However, if you're looking for something new, this writer would argue that the best streaming platform for fresh and reliable weekend entertainment is none other than Shudder.

It may be spring, but it's also alien invasion season on Netflix. And while 3 Body Problem deals with that premise in a very high-concept way, it's been unseated from the top of the list of Netflix's most popular shows by a new South Korean series called Parasyte: The Grey.

Parasyte: The Grey is based on the popular manga by Hitoshi Iwaaki, which has previously been adapted as an anime series and two live-action movies in Japan. But you don't need to know anything about those to enjoy Parasyte: The Grey. This is a separate story that features its own characters, and it's clearly catching on with fans around the world. That's why we're sharing three reasons why you should watch Parasyte: The Grey on Netflix.
