Halloween is just over a month away, and to celebrate, Netflix has just unveiled a special section on its platform that bundles all of its spookiest titles together in one place.

While the streaming platform has always allowed subscribers to browse 'horror' content, this new feature showcases anything vaguely genre-adjacent from spine-tingling supernatural outings such as Hereditary and Insidious, to blood-spattered slashers like Hush and the Fear Street trilogy.

Of course, there's some lighter fare, too, specifically in the 'Halloween Comedies' and 'Family Halloween Treats' categories, which highlight outings such as Ghostbusters and The Addams Family.

Other groupings include 'Zombie Horror Classics', 'Creature Features' and 'Teen Screams' – so there really is something for everyone.

The 'Halloween Hub' doesn't just offer up movies either, there's plenty of series listed to choose from as well. Things like Ash vs Evil Dead, Santa Clarita Diet, Hemlock Grove, Kingdom, Teen Wolf or Mike Flanagan's newest offering Midnight Mass.

Released today (Friday, September 24), it sees the filmmaker reunite with a number of actors from The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor (both of which are also listed) to tell a story that tackles lofty themes like guilt, trauma and faith, as well as life and death.

More closely, it follows Riley (Zach Gilford), who returns home to tiny Crockett Island, after serving jail time for drunk-driving. Before long, a new priest, Father Paul, arrives there, too, and reinvigorates the locals' religious spirits. But could this newfound fervour and certain unbelievable miracles come with terrible consequence?

Kate Siegel, Annabeth Gish, Rahul Kohli, Alex Essoe and Samantha Sloyan also star.
