Although the Netflix and Chills lineup kicks off with a pair of thrillers released in September, there are so many new Netflix movies and shows coming in October 2022 to officially get spooky season started.

After a slower September, which featured a heavier focus on Netflix movies rather than shows, October will be jam-packed with new release series you won’t want to miss. It’s a month full of brand-new Netflix shows, including The Midnight Club, Cabinet of Curiosities, and From Scratch.

While there’s plenty to binge-watch in the lead-up to Halloween, the streamer continues to bring out the movie stars for a huge month of new movies. Luckiest Girl Alive, The School for Good and Evil, and The Good Nurse are just some of the movies to look forward to in October.

New Netflix movies October 2022

Before we highlight the can’t-miss new Netflix shows coming in October 2022, let’s dive into some of the biggest movies premiering throughout the month with stars such as Mila Kunis, Priah Ferguson, Kerry Washington, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain, and more!

Luckiest Girl Alive

Release Date: Oct. 7

Based on the novel of the same name by Jessica Knoll, Mila Kunis stars in Luckiest Girl Alive as Ani FaNelli. While she appears to have it all on the outside, Ani must confront the dark truths from her past when a crime documentary reopens those mysterious old wounds. The twisty new movie will be one of the month’s best when it premieres Oct. 7.

The Curse of Bridge Hollow

The Curse of Bridge Hollow

Release Date: Oct. 14

It’s not Halloween without a new movie centered around the holiday. Disney+ has the highly anticipated Hocus Pocus 2 coming in late September, and Netflix has Stranger Things star Priah Ferguson in The Curse of Bridge Hollow. The comedy also stars Marlon Wayans and features Halloween decorations coming to life. Needless to say, we should all be watching on Oct. 14.
