Netflix Inc. has a bag full of Halloween-themed shows and movies coming in October, along with some big-name original films and the return of some series that viewers may have forgotten about.After a nearly two-year absence, the stalker thriller “You” (Oct. 15) returns with a third season, which finds Joe (Penn Badgley) now married with a baby and living in the suburbs, though that’s unlikely to stop his murderous instincts. For the teen crowd, “The Baby-Sitters Club” (Oct. 11) returns for its second season, as does the supernatural mystery “Locke & Key” (Oct. 22).
is also rolling out “The Guilty” (Oct. 1), an Antoine Fuqua-directed thriller movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a 911 operator trying to save a caller who’s in grave danger; “Maid” (Oct. 1), a drama miniseries based on Stephanie Land’s best-selling memoir about a young woman trying to work her way out of poverty, starring Margaret Qualley; “Army of Thieves” (Oct. 29), a safe-cracking heist thriller that serves as a prequel to Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead”; and “Diana: The Musical” (Oct. 1), the filmed version of the Broadway musical about Princess Diana, starring Jeanna De Waal.
For Halloween, there’s a range of offerings, from the bewitching tween mystery “Scaredy Cats” (Oct. 1), to the WWE “interactive” film “Escape the Undertaker” (Oct. 5), to the Megan Fox supernatural thriller “Night Teeth” (Oct. 20).
