Netflix is delivering this Halloween month with bingeable TV shows and only-on-Netflix movies. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with choice, stick that bag of popcorn in the microwave and pick from some of our top choices for shows and movies we’ve got high hopes for.


‘Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes’

Evan Peters took up the role of the notorious serial killer in the reenactment documentary, “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” released earlier this month. Since then, Twitter discourse has erupted concerning what’s real and what’s not. Following the twisted anthologies of “CWAK: The Ted Bundy Tapes” and “CWAK: The John Wayne Gacey Tapes,” Joe Berlinger reels in a third three-part documentary featuring never-before-heard audio interviews with Dahmer himself.

Delve into Dahmer’s warped psyche as he answers to his crimes, and uncover the personal grisly museum of a despicable serial killer. Knowing what we know now, let us take this opportunity to answer open questions of police accountability through a modern-day lens.

‘Descendant’

After bringing you “The Order of Myths” and “The Great Invisible,” Margaret Brown returns with a personal documentary featuring her hometown of Mobile, Alabama. “Descendant” documents the search and discovery of The Clotilda, the last known ship illegally carrying enslaved Africans into the United States. This ship’s discovery in 2019 shifts its focus on the descendant community of Africatown, where the community grapples to preserve their heritage while examining modern-day justice.

“Descendant” is a special jury prize winner at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival from Higher Ground and Night Tide productions, in association with Two One Five Entertainment.

‘Derry Girls’

“Derry Girls” is coming back for a third season exclusively on Netflix, and boy, is this going to be a doozy! As Northern Ireland grows up, Lisa McGee’s candid family comedy featuring our favourite group of eejits shows no signs of doing the same. This season, it looks like The Troubles may finally be over, but we’ll just have to see about that.

‘Barbarians’

Season 2 of the long-awaited historical drama “Barbarians” is here, and just in the nick of time. The brutal and true story of betrayal, pride, and togetherness left audiences feeling hungry for more – despite the story being well documented in historical scriptures, it’s just not the same.

In an unlikely twist of fate, Ari masterminds the slaughter of Roman troops, turning on his adoptive father for his self-proclaimed Germania family. This season, we’ll watch as he confronts his Roman past one more time, his brother having joined the Roman side to punish him.

‘The Redeem Team’

Basketball fans rejoice! This October, we’ll witness the inspiring story of ‘The Redeem Team’ through unprecedented Olympic footage, behind-the-scenes material, and insightful interviews with athletes and coaches from Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, and Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski.

Follow the U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball Team’s quest for gold at the Olympic Games Beijing 2008, after the previous team’s performance in Athens Olympic Games. The documentary aims to deliver a fascinating portrait of team building and the new standards set in the basketball scene by this show-stopping group of athletes.

‘The Good Nurse’

Netflix is killing it with these thrillers lately, and “The Good Nurse” is no exception. A gripping tale based on true events, this drama-thriller follows single mum and nurse Amy (Jessica Chastain), as she befriends the new hire, Charlie (Eddie Redmayne), at the ICU. As their friendship blooms, Amy feels she can finally build a promising future for her daughter. As luck would have it, her suspicions about Charlie and the mysterious deaths that seem to follow him force her to risk her life and the safety of her children to uncover the truth.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Tobias Lindhold, written by Academy Award nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns. Additional cast members include Nnamdi Asomugha, Noah Emmerich, and Kim Dickens.

‘Mr. Harrigan’s Phone’

Now, it wouldn’t be Halloween if Stephen “King of Horror” isn’t mentioned while perusing spooky things to watch. This time, his short story “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone” has been adapted to film, starring Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell. This strange story finds young Craig (Jaeden Martell) befriending reclusive billionaire Mr. Harrigan (Donald Sutherland) over their mutual love of reading. When Mr. Harrigan sadly passes on, Craig finds he can somehow still communicate with his recently deceased friend through his iPhone.

Directed by John Lee Hancock, produced by Ryan Murphy, Jason Blum, and Carla Hacken – we predict this Stephen King film adaptation will join the “great” list of book-to-film adaptations.

‘Spiritfarer’

While not a TV show or a movie, we couldn’t not include “Spiritfarer” in this list of only-on-Netflix October fun. Many of you have probably played this indie sandbox game on Nintendo Switch or Xbox by now, but seeing this adventure game on a platform like Netflix sets a future precedent of more diversified entertainment in the following years.

You’ll be playing as Stella, accompanied by pet cat Daffodil, as you take over ferry master Charon’s role as the new spiritfarer. Here, you’ll learn to build your own boat, farm, mine, fish, cook, and craft your way across the river to guide lost souls to their final destination. This poignant game about death, goodbyes, and memory will have you feeling surprisingly snug and cushy.
