Medium to High Creep-O-Meter 

What We Do in the Shadows | On Demand | TV-MA  

After a glut of vampire dramas, the cinematic gods – or more appropriately, devils – have joyfully cursed us with the wickedly funny satire on the blood-sucking genre. Starring Matt Berry and Natashia Demetriou, the mockumentary-style show on FX is a refreshingly charming take on the macabre. While it’s perfect for Halloween streaming, this vampire satire is wonderfully inappropriate any time of the year.  

American Horror Story: NYC | 11 Installments | Premieres Wednesday, October 19 @ 10/9c | TV-MA  

If dark and disturbing is your cup of witches’ brew, prepare yourself for a wild roller coaster ride of full throttle creep. In the 11th installment, this notorious anthology series redefines the horror genre with mind-bending scenarios such as a coven of witches, a creepy asylum, a traveling freak show, and a haunted hotel.  

This coven doesn’t need a new supreme. It needs a new rug.

Fright Night | On Demand | TV-14

Happy Death Day 2U | On Demand | TV-MA  

In the second installment of the screamer franchise, students at Bayfield University are about to witness a freak of nature when Ryan (Phi Vu) dies repeatedly.

Also starring Jessica Rothe, it’s going to be a long night, again and again, and again…. 

The Dead Don’t Die | On Demand | TV-MA 

In the town of Centerville, residents gear up to battle a horde of zombies rising from their graves. Starring Adam Driver, Bill Murray, and Selena Gomez, the sordid tale begins with the discovery of dead rabbits in the woods. Could it be Hermit Bob or some other nefarious supernatural forces at work? Whatever is causing the strange occurrences, it won’t end well.  

The Pumpkin Patch: Family Friendly Halloween Entertainment  

Halloween Wars | Food Network | Mondays 9/8c | On Demand | TV-G

When five teams of pumpkin carvers, cake decorators, and candy makers compete for the winning title, it’s an epic battle that sends chills up the spine. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats as teams get eliminated and the winner takes home a $50,000 prize.

Hotel Transylvania | On Demand | TV-PG  

When Dracula throws a huge party, all the cutest and most eccentric monsters come out of the shadows for a ghoulishly good time.

Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, the safest place for monsters of all kinds.  

The Witches | On Demand | TV-PG  

Starring Angelica Huston and Rowan Atkinson, a coven of witches don’t like children so they decide to concoct a curse to turn them into mice.
