It's nearly Halloween! Well, close enough. Thankfully, sizeable chunk of what's new on Netflix is looking to ring in the spooky season with ghoulish gusto. The entirety of October is populated with shows and movies that will send shivers down your spine and scrambling behind the sofa.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is one such series, with the anthology show departing Hill House and heading for pastures new. Don't worry, there are still plenty of ghosts in the mix this time around.

On the less spooky side of things, those who need to catch up on Schitt's Creek will be pleased to know season 6 is new on Netflix in October. Plus, there's a second volume of Unsolved Mysteries and even the likes of Her and Gran Torino to keep you company as the night draw in.

It's all here in our complete list of what's arriving on Netflix this month: every single show, movie and documentary.
