New on Netflix UK: October 2017

Including the highly anticipated return of Stranger Things, David Fincher's Mindhunter, and Stephen King's 1922

There's lots of treats appearing on Netflix for Halloween including the much anticipated second series of Stranger Things (27 October). The new posters and trailers have referenced The Lost Boys, Thriller, Ghostbusters and A Nightmare on Elm Street amongst other films. Set in the fall of 1984 with the Demogorgon still threatening those who survived the first series the horror looks set to continue in stylish fashion.

Thomas Jane and Molly Parker star in another Stephen King adaptation,1922 (20 October) which is based on a short story about a man who murdered his wife and son and soon after is terrorised by rats. Bella Thorne stars in a horror directed by McG, The Babysitter (13 October) about a young boy who discovers his babysitter is part of a satanic cult. This one sounds like it could be more trick than treat…

David Fincher makes his return to television with season one of Mindhunter (13 October) a police procedural set in the late 1970s. This crime drama is based on the men who first coined the term 'serial killer' and follows FBI agents investigating renowned cases. Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm and Andrew Douglas also direct episodes. Also in TV, weekly episodes of Dynasty: Season 1 (12 October), Riverdale: Season 2 (12 October) and Designated Survivor: Season 2 (5 October) appear this month.

Dustin Hoffmann, Emma Thompson, Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler star in Noah Baumbach's hilarious New York set family portrait, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (13 October) which premiered at Cannes to great reviews. Griffin Dunne's documentary about the insightful Joan Didion looks stunning. The author and journalist finally gets a film about her life and the impact of her remarkable writing called Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold (27 October). David France's documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson (6 October) honours the LGBTQI activist.

Also in film is Stanley Kramer's 1963 chase comedy It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1 October). An absurd film filled with glorious slapstick and 'everyone who has ever been funny.'
