We can't really tell you how but Halloween is only five weeks away which means Netflix is preparing for the spooky season. The streaming service has dropped off a new category for Halloween lovers to indulge in and it's called "Netflix and Chills." The round-up of series and movies will be Halloween, thriller, and horror-based with such titles like The Blair Witch Project, Poltergeist, The Shining, American Horror Story, The Haunting of Hill House and more.

The move is a clear way to make the Halloween movie search a lot easier for users around October 31st and provides a clean round-up of titles to keep on their radar. Netflix has even announced some new original content that's set to hit the platform, that will be added to the new category from Stephen King's In the Tall Grass to In the Shadow of the Moon.
