As Halloween gets closer, things will start to get strange — but Netflix will be even stranger. Just check out the list of what's coming to Netflix in October 2017. Not only is the Stranger Things Season 2 premiere slated for the end of October, but Netflix seems to be keeping with that theme throughout the month: ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and, let's not dare forget, pumpkin spice everything.

In preparation for All Hallow's Eve, the streaming service will deliver scary movies starring a red-haired doll that has been coming to life since the late '80s and a veterinarian with an insatiable taste for meat. If you like scares that are a little more existential, there's a Jake Gyllenhaal classic that you may want to watch a couple of times. No, seriously, you might need to watch it a couple of times if you're actually going to understand it.

For those who don't want to be scared, though, Netflix added some feel-good movies so you don't need to sleep with a night light. If you're not trick-or-treating, Sandra Bullock will keep you laughing with not one, but two movies. If you're more of a Paul Rudd fan, there's a film that you'll want to watch with your BFF.

So, just as the leaves changes, it's time to switch up your Netflix queue with this new batch of movies and TV shows.
