As Halloween season kicks off, streamers are lining up some of the most anticipated horror movies of the year. Few home releases are as awaited as “Hellraiser,” a reboot of Clive Barker’s ‘80s classic. The series revolves around bad people, sex, and the alien Cenobites; a race of beings obsessed with torture and pain, boasting some of the world’s most terrifying and vibrant designs. The reboot stars Jaime Clayton as pinhead and Odessa A’zion as the unfortunate person who finds the iconic mystery box.
Werewolf by Night (Disney+)
Marvel’s very first Horror project is here. “Werewolf by Night” stars Gael García Bernal, a werewolf who finds himself in a monster hunter gathering in an undeclarared era, hunting monsters and pretending to be something he’s not.
Derry Girls (Netflix)
The last season of “Derry Girls” is finally available on Netflix. The show, set in Ireland in the ‘90s, follows a group of five close friends as they grow up in the midst of political and societal turmoil. The series is hilarious and poignant, with a cast of talented actors that will likely move on to bigger things.
Catherine Called Birdy (Prime Video)
Starring Bella Ramsey and directed by Lena Dunham, “Catherine Called Birdy” follows the titular Catherine, a young and spirited girl growing up in medieval times and fighting all sorts of conventions. It co-stars Andrew Scott and Joe Alwyn.
Habla Loud (HBO Max)
“Habla Loud” is the newest entry into HBO’s Habla series, providing viewers with footage from all manner of talented Latinos of different backgrounds and occupations. It features appearances from Residente, Carla Morrison, Wilson Cruz, and more.
Grey’s Anatomy (Hulu)
“Grey’s Anatomy” is premiering its 19th season, if you can believe it. The new season is introducing a new batch of characters, among them, interns, like the show’s opening season. While Meredith Grey remains at the center of it all, the show appears to be doing a reboot of sorts, wiping the slate clean for many more years of surgeries, relationships, and drama.
The Witch (HBO Max)
Lastly, there’s no better Halloween recommendation than “The Witch,” a film responsible for launching two great talents: Anya Taylor Joy and director Robert Eggers. The film, which calls itself a “New England fairytale” in its opening moments, follows a family whose youngest child goes missing, and the growing certainty that the eldest daughter is a witch.
