Netflix is getting us in the mood for Halloween with pretty creepy titles this month. Like we do each and every week, we’re sharing all the new Netflix movies and shows debuting beginning the week of Oct. 9 for your viewing pleasure.

Before we dive into what’s new, I have a reminder for all of my Love Is Blind fans that the season 5 finale is this week. Audiences will get to find out if Lydia/Milton and Izzy/Stacy say yes at the altar or decide to end the relationship. This has been one of the weirdest and craziest seasons yet, but trust me, you won’t want to miss this finale.

From the brilliant mind of Mike Flanagan, the creator The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass, comes a horror series based on work from Edgar Allan Poe. The Fall of the House of Usher follows Roderick and Madeline, siblings who have built a Fortunato Pharmaceutical wealth, privilege, and power. However, things from their past threatens to take down everything they built. As a fan of Flanagan’s work, I truly can’t wait to watch this show.

A Swedish comedy slasher titled The Conference has my full attention when it releases. The film follows a team building conference attended by some employees that turns into a nightmare when a mysterious person begins to stalk and kills the workers. This sounds like the perfect Halloween movie to get us in the mood for the holiday.

From our suggestions on this list, what will you be watching? Are you excited about The Fall of the House of Usher? Or will you be checking out The Conference with me? Let us know, and let’s hope next week brings us more Netflix additions.
