Holiday season programming is a time-honored tradition that has propped up every facet of entertainment from broadcast and cable to streaming and film. This year is no different. As we inch ever closer to the spooks and frights of Halloween, Netflix (NFLX) is preparing a slate of films, series, and specials to get audiences into the mood.

Dozens of titles encompass the streamer’s upcoming runway of exclusive “Netflix & Chills,” but here’s a topline of the slate fans can bookmark for binging.

Netflix caused quite the stir this summer with its three-part Fear Street horror trilogy which saw the streamer release three films over a three-week span in July. Freed from the rigid requirements of a traditional theatrical release, Netflix has the freedom to experiment with different release strategies such as this. The Fear Street movies were modest hits, according to Nielsen data, and a unique attempt at something new. The goal is to unearth fresh paths to generating success with its lineup of original films. On that front, Netflix will be releasing a new movie every Wednesday leading into Halloween.
