Welcome to your daily recap of what’s new on Netflix for October 31st with your new additions for Halloween which includes a big re-addition that departed last month. We’ll also check in with what’s trending for today.

Tomorrow is set to be another big first of the month for Netflix with a number of new titles announced over the past couple of days. They include an array of Lego titles plus Chappelle’s Show.

We also saw a number of titles leave Netflix today including the Disney series Goldie & Bear and the first season of Zumbo’s Just Desserts.

But now, let’s take a look at what’s new on Netflix for October 31st, 2020.


The 12th Man

Genre: Drama, History, Thriller, War
Director: Harald Zwart
Cast: Thomas Gullestad, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Marie Blokhus, Mads Sjøgård Pettersen
Writer: Petter Skavlan
Runtime: 135 min
Awards: 4 wins & 4 nominations.

Looking for a superb thriller for Halloween? The 12th Man is a perfect addition if you’ve explored the rest of the Netflix Halloween offerings.

Here’s what you can expect from the multi-language movie:

“Based on true events, this story follows a Norwegian saboteur’s harrowing struggle to reach safety after escaping a Nazi attack during World War II.”


American Horror Story (Season 8)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Thriller
Cast: Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates
Writer: Brad Falchuk, Ryan Murphy
Runtime: 60 min
Awards: Won 2 Golden Globes. Another 124 wins & 379 nominations.

It’s a tad cheeky to call this a brand new addition given it was removed just last month from Netflix but it’s worth quickly highlighting never the less.

Season 8 returns just in time for Halloween but perhaps more importantly before season 9 comes to Netflix later in November.
