A psychopath disguised as a mysterious woman? Netflix has got it all for a hair-raising, door-locking, keep-the-lights-on time this Halloween. Just make sure you’re not streaming these films and shows all alone.

A Tale Dark & Grimm
Worried the kids in the house would be too scared for the films and shows above? Netflix has kid-friendly offerings that still give a lil bit of spookiness! In A Tale Dark & Grimm, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story to find a better life and better parents (ones who won’t chop off their heads!).
