Everything Coming To Netflix, Hulu, HBO, And Amazon Prime Video In October

The scary and the not so scary

by Sesali Bowen

We're going to watch a lot of scary movies in October, and, if you're like me, you could very easily be overestimating your capacity to take in all that terror without having nightmares, keeping all the lights on in your house, or making sure your phone is charged and you're ready to run. The solution to this problem are what I like to call palate cleansers. This month's streaming options on Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Amazon Prime video are chock-full of both: horrifying stories and then visuals to bring you to a happier place.

For example, if you wait until October 4 when Season 3 of Big Mouth debuts, you can forget all about Neve Campbell being stalked in Scream 2. Or follow up your Hellraiser binge with the Hey Arnold! Jungle Movie on Hulu. Check out the full list of streaming offerings, below, and thank me later for my ingenuity.
