How to spend your Halloween night if you're staying in.
10/31/2018 12:17pm ET

As someone tasked with recommending shows and movies ― but who also can’t watch anything in the horror genre without losing a week of sleep ― I’m happy this monstrous month is finally coming to a close.

Still, I recognize it’s Halloween and you likely want one last horrific hurrah with the holiday, so I’m sharing this list of scary content you can watch on Netflix in these waning Halloween hours.

The guide below comes from Netflix itself. The company added a dozen spooky titles over the last few weeks, ranging from a classic like “The Shining” to a few stand-out Originals such as “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell.”

You can read the full roundup below.
