Another weekend means another batch of streaming recommendations from us and, this week, spooky season is in full swing. There are horror movies galore to choose from, for one thing – Michael Myers is back in the brand new Halloween Kills, which is out now on Peacock. Meanwhile, critically acclaimed indie movie Censor, which pays homage to the video nasties of decades past, is on Hulu and It Chapter Two is on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
Speaking of Amazon Prime: I Know What You Did Last Summer, a new series based on the same story as the '90s movie of the same name that puts a fresh spin on the gory tale starts streaming this weekend. Also on the small screen is the season premiere of Succession season 3 – the Roys return this Sunday on HBO Max in the US and NOW TV in the UK, if you prefer satire to slashers.
You season 3 – Netflix

Season 3 of the psychological thriller sees Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti return as serial stalker Joe and murderous Love, who are now married with a newborn baby and living in a wealthy Californian suburb. But, unsurprisingly, marital bliss is short-lived for the couple – if it ever existed at all. Expect blood, tears, and plenty of deadpan internal monologuing from Joe. Michaela McManus, Shalita Grant, Travis Van Winkle, Dylan Arnold, and Tati Gabrielle are also joining the cast of the new season.
