This is Halloween… so be ready for a fright.
The best way to celebrate spooky season (aside from with a pumpkin spice latte in hand) is with bone-chilling movies and TV shows. Thankfully, there are plenty coming at you this year ahead of Halloween.
From family-friendly choices to new installments of beloved classics, here’s a list of all the Halloween movies and TV shows of 2022:
Halloween Ends – Theaters/ Paramount+
Laurie Strode and Michael Myers face off one last time in the final installment of the Halloween franchise. See how it all goes down when the film hits theaters on October 14. It will also be available for streaming on Peacock.
Chucky (Season 2) – Syfy
Fans were absolutely taken with the first season of Chucky on Syfy, making a second season a guarantee. And after that jaw-dropping cliffhanger, you’re going to want to see what happens next when the murderous doll returns for more mayhem on October 5.
Wednesday – Netflix
Fans of the Addams family can enjoy a reimagining that focuses on Wednesday Addams played by Jenna Ortega, who truly embodies the Burton-esque essence of the character. The Netflix series also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán as Morticia and Gomez Addams. No premiere date has been announced just yet, but expect it to arrive sometime in the fall.
Hocus Pocus 2 – Disney Plus
Sisstaaaaas! It’ll be a glorious morning when the Sanderson sisters (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) rise again to reign terror on a new lot of children that light the Black Flame candle in Salem. The sequel to the beloved 1993 original has been a long time coming, which makes it that much more exciting.
Cabinet of Curiosities – Netflix
Step aside, American Horror Story. The new horror anthology comes from the mind of Guillermo del Toro and features a star-studded cast including Andrew Lincoln, Sebastian Roché, Rupert Grint and more. It’s based on a short story of the same name and features eight unique live-action stories meant to challenge our traditional notions of horror. Start streaming on October 25.
The Midnight Club – Netflix
The horror mystery-thriller hails from the minds of Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy, the duo that gave you The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, so you know it’s legit. It follows a group of eight terminally ill teens living in hospice that entertain each other with life-like horror stories and make a pact that the first person to die will come back and haunt them. It arrives on October 7.
Ghosts (Season 2) – CBS
There’s nothing creepy about Ghosts, the 20-minute sitcom comedy about a young couple who inherits a mansion and realizes it houses the ghosts of all those who have died on the property. However, it’s a fun concept that definitely taps into the “after-life.” Come season 2, we’ll see all the antics that come with Sam and Jay officially opening the B&B. The new season returns on September 29.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn – Theaters
The film will serve as a reboot of the 2021 cult classic, though, it’s not connected to the original in any way. Sydney Craven’s Laine premonitions and visions of the Creeper are timed perfectly to when the town begins to prepare for its first horror fest. The film will have a limited theatrical run from September 19 through September 25.
Interview with a Vampire – AMC
The upcoming American gothic horror drama is a small-screen adaptation of Anne Rice’s 1976 novel of the same name. It will sink its fangs into Louis de Pointe’s (Jacob Anderson) epic story of “love, blood, and the perils of immortality” with Vampire Lestat (Sam Reid). It premieres on October 2.
The Curse of Bridge Hollow – Netflix
The Halloween comedy teams Marlon Wayans with Stranger Things star Priah Ferguson as a father-daughter unit forced to save their town after an ancient and mischievous spirit causes the decorations to come to life. Also starring Kelly Rowland, it hits the streamer on October 14.
Spirit Halloween: The Movie
We’ve all shopped at a Spirit Halloween store, but what if we got trapped in one overnight? That’s what the new film explores, but unfortunately for the kids hoping to enjoy a night of mischief and adventure, they end up haunted by an “angry evil spirit” (Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd) who is possessing all the toys inside the store. You can start streaming on your favorite VOD platform on October 11.
The Imperfects – Netflix
Since the series premieres on September 8, we’re adding it as a bonus. The fantasy horror finds a group of teens hunting down a scientist, whose experiments gave them monstrous side effects.

When Is ‘Goosebumps’ Coming Out? Everything We Know About the Disney+ Horror Series
There’s nothing more classic than the Goosebumps series—’90s kids know all too well.
From books to films and even a brief TV show in 1995, the franchise has been haunting our nightmares ever since R.L Stine brought it to life in 1992.
And now, a new generation—though, who are we kidding? Millennials will undoubtedly be watching—is going to discover what the horror franchise is all about.
Disney+ and Hulu are capitalizing on the spookiest day of the year, Friday the 13th, by launching the upcoming 2023 series created by Rob Letterman and Nicholas Stoller.
The first 5 episodes will premiere on Oct. 13, with the remaining 5 episodes (for a total of 10) will drop weekly every Friday until the finale on Nov. 17.
How can you watch Goosebumps? Well, I’m glad you asked because you don’t have to get Disney+ if you don’t have it—the chilling series will be released simultaneously on Hulu as part of the Huluween lineup.
As for the synopsis, the plot will follow five high schoolers as they investigate the tragic passing of a teen named Harold Biddle three decades prior, which will, in turn, unearth some dark and uneasy secrets from their parents’ past. Yep, looping in parents is how they get the millennials invested, with some fans even praising the more “mature” approach to the content. They know their audience, that’s for sure!
They’ve even brought in some iconic cast members to fill the roles as the Goosebumps cast will star Justin Long as Nathan Bratt, the new English teacher in town connected to the supernatural murder, along with Rachael Harris as Nora and Rob Huebel as Colin. The teens in the series will be portrayed by Ana Yi Puig (Isabella), Miles McKenna (James), Will Price (Jeff), Zack Morris (Isaiah), and Isa Briones (Margot).
And yes, the series will be inspired by the books as the creators are basing them on the original stories from “Say Cheese and Die!”, “The Haunted Mask,” “The Cuckoo Clock of Doom,” “Go Eat Worms!” and “Night of the Living Dummy,” which, admittedly, were some of my favorites from middle school.
You can check out the trailer here before the series premieres as it teases the return of Slappy the Dummy, an iconic fictional character.
