I’m not going to waste your time with idle chatter! There’s far too much ooky spooky content to get to. Many streaming services really stepped up to the plate this month. You won’t be disappointed. But you will need a strategy to make the most of this bananapants month. Be sure to peruse the complete list below, calendar in hand, for a full picture of what horror movies are coming and going from your favorite streaming services in October 2022.

Please keep in mind that all dates listed below may not apply to viewers outside the US.


Cheat Sheet: October 2022 Horror Streaming

The streaming service champion of the month is the Criterion Channel. Not only did they add a whole lot of incredible horror content to their platform this month, but they also struck a great balance between class and camp.

The streaming service dunce of the month is Disney+. Stay losing, suckers. Other than Werewolf by Night, ya’ll aren’t bringing much to the table.

Horror Streaming Highlights for October 2022

Pick of the Month: Deadstream (2022)

Deadstream

Synopsis: Popular live stream host and permanently canceled influencer Shawn Ruddy is about to make one last-ditch attempt to assure sponsors (and his dwindling audience) that he’s still got it. The stunt: he’s going to spend the night in a haunted house. Armed with a backpack full of go-pros and an arsenal of ghosthunting paraphernalia, Shawn’s apology tour quickly takes a turn when it turns out that the house is indeed haunted as fuck.

Co-directed and co-written by husband-wife duo Joseph and Vanessa WinterDeadstream is a genuinely hilarious and tension-filled found-footage gem that, at under 90-minutes (!), is a must-watch for horror fans. Deadstream is as much an ode to Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead films as it is an innovative take on the live-stream horror genre (easily pummeling the low bar set by its abysmal competitors). It’s fun, it’s freaky, and the Winters are clearly a horror director duo worth keeping an eye on (and you can do just that by checking out their segment in V/H/S/99 when it premieres on Shudder on October 20).

Available on Shudder on October 6


The final entry in the “H40 Trilogy”

Halloween Ends

Synopsis: It’s been four years since the events of Halloween Kills, and eternal final girl Laurie Strode is determined to live, laugh, love, and finish her memoir. But the arrival of a young accused killer, Corey, threatens to bring violence, mayhem, and who knows, maybe even Michael Myers, back into Laurie’s life. 

David Gordon Green‘s Halloween trilogy is coming to a close. And if the sinister late-promo trailer is to be believed, DGG might be of a mind to give us some conclusive answers to the ultimate fates of Laurie and Michael. Which probably means that we’re going to get another reboot trilogy in, oh, I don’t know, three years?

Available on Peacock on October 14


A Henry Selick and Jordan Peele joint? Hell yeah.

Wendell and Wild

Synopsis: A troubled goth teenager with supernatural talents summons two demon brothers, who must put their long-time dream of defying their demon dad on hold when they find themselves swept up in a local conspiracy to turn the teen’s hometown into a private prison.

Henry Selick is in the director’s chair (his first feature since Coraline!). He is sharing the screenwriting sofa with Jordan Peele (Nope). The likes of James HongVing RamesKeegan-Michael Key, and Angela Bassett. By all accounts dark, imaginative, and a joyful carnivalesque experience, Wendell & Wild deserves a spot on your watchlist this month.

Available on Netflix on October 28


The best Hellraiser film since ‘Hellbound’ (a low bar, but let me have this, please!)

Hellraiser

Synopsis: Through a series of improbable events, a young recently-recovered drug addict named Riley comes into possession of a very evil-looking puzzle box that definitely, almost assuredly, will summon a bunch of S&M demons. But with her recent relapse, can Riley really trust what she’s seeing?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Saying a film is the “best Hellraiser sequel since Hellbound” is like saying that sugar tastes sweeter than sand. But still: we have a new Hellraiser film that has a balance of pleasure and pain (most of the franchise is just the latter). We’ve got a new Pinhead in Jamie Clayton, and with The Night House director David Bruckner at the helm, we’ll be in good, goopy hands, methinks. Only one way to find out! … now where did we put that obviously evil puzzle box, uh, I mean remote.

Available on Hulu on October 7th.
