October brings tons of new movies and TV shows to Netflix. With Halloween right around the corner, the streamer has its Netflix & Chills line-up packed with plenty of fright-tastic movies like There's Someone Inside Your House and Night Teeth, as well as a huge helping of terrifying TV shows like Locke & Key season 2 and You season 3. Then there's Army of the Dead prequel Army of Thieves arriving at the end of the month, and much more besides. 

We've rounded up every new movie and TV show headed to Netflix this October in both the US and the UK below, meaning you can get planning your movie marathons and binge-watches from whichever side of the pond you're on. Plus, we've even picked our top three choices of the month to make settling in with something great even easier. So, without further ado, scroll on to check out absolutely everything the streamer has in store for us this spooky season. 

You season 3 – October 15

The third installment in Netflix's twisty original series sees Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti) married – and parenting their baby boy. The duo-turned-trio now find themselves in a Californian suburb in the hope of a fresh start, and while Joe is trying his best to be a father and a husband, he's worried about Love and her tendency for the violently unexpected... and finds his eye wandering to the woman next door. 

Night Teeth – October 20

Part of the streamer's Netflix & Chills Halloween line-up, this stylish vampire flick sees college student Benny (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.) chauffeur two mysterious women (Debby Ryan and Lucy Fry) for a night of partying across Los Angeles. But, he soon stumbles across the surprising truth: the women are blood-thirsty monsters, there's a whole hidden society of vamps secretly running the city, and Benny is right in the middle of a war between humanity and the blood-suckers. Megan Fox, Sydney Sweeney, Alfie Allen, Alexander Ludwig, and Raúl Castillo co-star. 

Army of Thieves – October 29

This prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead focuses on Matthias Schweighöfer's Dieter, and sees the genius safe-cracker enlisted to break into legendary vaults across Europe in the early days of the zombie outbreak. Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, and Guz Khan co-star, and Schweighöfer directs while Snyder produces. 

This isn't the only Army of the Dead-related project headed to Netflix soon, either – a prequel animated series Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas arrives next year, and Army of the Dead 2 was recently confirmed to be in the works
