Best Shows on Netflix Right Now


Netflix is celebrating Halloween.

Though we will be without the streaming service’s most mysterious shows – Stranger Things and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina released new seasons in October 2017 and 2018 – there is a pack of amazing original horror movies coming this month, including a new Stephen King adaptation called, In The Tall Grass.

Sam Worthington leads Fractured, which sees a manhunt for his wife and daughter who disappeared after a visit to a creepy hospital, and Sadie Sink (Stranger Things) appears in Eli, a story about a gravely ill boy whose treatments leave him plagued by nightmarish experiences.

There are high-profile coming back series in Big Mouth, Riverdale and The Kominsky Method, a talent show led by Cardi B and Chance The Rapper, a new series featuring Paul Rudd in a dual role, El Camino: an awesome Breaking Bad movie and Meryl Streep in Steven Soderbergh’s newest, The Laundromat.
