Trust Netflix to just know when to amp up the spook-o-meter! As soon as it's time for the onset of October - or as everybody loves to call it, the Halloween month - the streaming giant will drop one of the most highly anticipated scary movies this year. Premiering for the first time ever will be the adaptation of 'The Haunting of Hill House', on Friday, October 12, globally.
The 10-episode horror show is not alone in its venture to spook viewers out; joining it will be another long-anticipated rather high-profile supernatural show this coming fall. Titled 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina', the show will debut on Netflix on October 26.

Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past -- some of which still lurk in their minds, while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House."
