All the New Halloween Movies and TV Shows Premiering This Month, Ranked by Scariness

Halloween is only a few weeks away, which means you have to squeeze in as many scary movie marathons as you can. I don’t make the rules! That’s just what you do in October! Thankfully, there are plenty of new spooky, semi-spooky, and not-spooky-but-still-spooky things premiering this month to enjoy if you’ve already worn out Hocus Pocus. Well, actually, you can never wear out Hocus Pocus, but these 22 new movies and TV shows are great to watch in between screenings. Here they are, below, ranked by scariness.

In dead last for scariness (but first place for deliciousness) is the new Netflix series about a baker who fills her home with all sorts of spooky confections, crafts, and creatures. But creepy in, like, the fun way.

Want to see how Disney World suits up for Halloween? Tune in to this annual special, which shows how much work it takes to make the happiest place on earth haunted.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, and several of the OG cast members from Hocus Pocus (no Bette Midler, though) reunite for this twenty-fifth anniversary celebration of the beloved film. There will be music, drag queens, and a heavy dose of nostalgia. What more could you want, really?

It’s hard to believe Wicked debuted on Broadway 15 years ago, but Idina Menzel, Kristin Chenoweth, and special guests like Ariana Grande are getting together to celebrate it. It’s time to try defying gravity.

Aside from that creepy dummy with the chattering mouth, not much about the second Goosebumps movie is capital-S scary—despite what the title might suggest.

Comedy-horror series tend to lean more on the comedy than horror, and Stan Against Evil is no exception. Season three of the hit IFC series debuts tonight.

The title of this thriller is pretty self-explanatory: A seemingly normal 17-year-old girl’s world is flipped upside down when she stars exhibiting zombielike symptoms. Because this is a Lifetime movie, though, expect more over-the-top laughs than actual scares—which, let’s be real, is more fun, anyway.

Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, and Sarah Jeffery are the stars of this 2018 take on Charmed. There’s a feminist tone that drives this reboot, making it both fitting and fun for the times.

From Hulu comes a classic teen thrill ride that will surely satiate your appetite for movies like Prom Night and When a Stranger Calls. This story centers on a group of teenage girls who must deal with the supernatural aftermath of playing a game of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board. The horror part comes in when they start dying off in the exact same way the game predicted.

Based on a true story, this movie centers on two 12-year-old girls who think a monster in the woods will hurt them and their families unless they give it a human sacrifice. So they plot to kill their other friend, who miraculously survives the attack, leading to the arrest of her two friends.

Make no mistake: This isn’t a remake of the classic nineties series starring Melissa Joan Hart. Instead, we’re introduced to a new Sabrina, played by Kiernan Shipka, who must decide on her sixteenth birthday if she wants to stay mortal or become fully a witch—and give her soul to the devil in the process.

Because what’s scarier to watch on Halloween than a group of people investigating actual paranormal activity in real time?

Actually, I know the answer to that: monsters. It’s scarier watching people try to find monsters.

Kim Cattrall stars in this new series from CBS All Access, in which your favorite childhood stories are retold through a psychological thriller lens.

The second season of this gripping and creepy series will document the appeals of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, who were found guilty in 2007 for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

The second season of this horror anthology series, based on the popular podcast, will be available on Amazon streaming on October 19. Each episode has its own self-contained—and horrifying— story, so it’s hard to say what you should expect. Besides, ya know, scariness.

Syfy’s genuinely terrifying anthology show is back with a whole new Creepypasta story. This one centers on a newlywed couple who discovers a hidden door in their house.

Dan Stevens stars in this atmospheric period film about a brother who travels to an isolated island to rescue her sister from a cult that kidnapped her.

Based on the 1959 book of the same name, this new series from Netflix follows a family who returns to their old house and rediscovers all the eerie reasons they left it in the first place.

The truth is always stranger (and scarier) than fiction, which is why this new Netflix series—in which real people retell their experiences with the paranormal—will send a shiver down your spine.

Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton star in this truly disturbing remake of the classic seventies horror film, in which a young American dancer joins a prestigious Berlin ballet academy unaware of the fact that it’s run by witches.

It would feel wrong if this highly anticipated sequel didn’t top our list. Jamie Lee Curtis returns to the role that made her a household name, only this time she’s older, wiser, and hellbent on killing Michael Myers when he returns to her neighborhood on Halloween night.

Michael B. Jordan Production Company Head Alana Mayo on the Future of Hollywood

Alana Mayo, the 34-year-old head of production and development at Outlier Society, is happily riding shotgun with her AirPods firmly in place. She’s not listening to music or a podcast; no one is rolling calls on the other line. She just likes to be ready for anything. A 12-year veteran of the film industry—most recently a VP at Paramount Pictures, where she worked on The Big Short, Fences, and Selma—Mayo has spent the last nine months turning the start-up that Michael B. Jordan launched in 2016 (and named after the Malcolm Gladwell book) into a proper studio. And when you’re trying to go from celebrity LLC to Hollywood heavy-weight, being plugged in is simply part of the job.

At any given moment, Outlier, which has only three full-time employees including Mayo and 31-year-old Jordan, is developing an impressive slate of feature films, scripted and nonscripted TV shows, short-form Web series, and a panoply of other platform-agnostic content. “What is so great about this company is that you can be bold and quick and fail without losing hundreds of millions of dollars, and adapt from there,” Mayo says when we sit down in a high-gloss conference room Outlier shares with Skydance Media, the Santa Monica company behind blockbusters like World War Z, Jack Reacher, and several Mission: Impossibles. “I always describe us as a millennial company. I think, because Michael and I are actually in this demographic, we so clearly see the opportunity in reaching people outside of traditional means.”

And reaching people is the mission: Mayo considers “meeting the audience where they’re at” to be her primary concern. “I don’t think the world is fixed by content, but I’d say it is 100 percent informed by content and the images people see,” she says. “I often think back on what I remember from my childhood and how that shaped the image of myself. I think content has a really profound effect on kids.”

In March the studio became one of the first to publicly adopt inclusion riders, a contract amendment that guarantees cast and crew diversity on all productions. The decision was a no-brainer. “Being a person of color, we’re always fighting for inclusion,” Jordan says. “So when we’re able to be in a position of power to bring people in? I didn’t think twice about that. I was like, ‘Oh, that’s a thing? Oh, cool. Great.’” And in July, Outlier got its first vote of industry approval in the form of five Emmy nominations for a modern reimagining of Fahrenheit 451 for HBO.

Together the digitally savvy pair pulls inspiration from social media, obscure comic books, even an inkling that something is about to pop in the zeitgeist. “We don’t have a strict formula to how we find intellectual property, but there shouldn’t be any rock left unturned,” says Jordan, who is currently filming back-to-back Outlier projects in Atlanta. “I’ll send Alana a DM or a post on Instagram that inspired my mind. It’s more or less me throwing stuff her way to see if she thinks there’s something there. Then we go back and forth and see if there’s any existing intellectual property or articles that might support the story or if it’s something that we build from the ground up.”

The Power Couple

“I met Lena as a writer before I met her as a romantic interest,” Mayo says of fiancée Waithe. “I hope one day we’ll figure out a way to work together.”

The Blockbuster

“The correlation between a diverse cast and box office numbers is incredibly strong,” Mayo says of Outlier’s remake of Fahrenheit 451, starring Jordan as Guy Montag. “The more diverse, the more box office—time and time again.”

The Moguls

From left: Mayo, director Destin Daniel Cretton, and Jordan on the set of Outlier’s Just Mercy, a co-production with Gil Netter and Warner Bros., the first major studio to follow Outlier’s lead and adopt inclusion riders.

Oftentimes an aching void in the marketplace is the perfect place to start. Raising Dion, a forthcoming Netflix series about a young boy with superpowers, is Outlier’s response to Black Panther. “There are so few science-fiction films or TV shows that have people of color as the star. And not in a way where it is the usual paradigm and you’re just casting it differently, but where you’re actually embracing other people and their culture,” Mayo says. “Whoopi Goldberg talked about how [growing up] she never saw black people in the future in film and television. As a child she was like, ‘What happens to us?”

From an early age Mayo struggled to answer that question for herself. A child of the eighties, she never identified with era classics like Sixteen Candles. “I’m from Chicago, so I should be like, ‘Oh, John Hughes,’ but I did not relate to that movie at all,” she says. “I grew up identifying as an outsider. I had these weird, potentially contradictory parts of my identity.” Mayo’s mom, Maisha, is a Jehovah’s Witness who worked in entertainment law. Her dad, Barry, is a meditation enthusiast and retired radio executive who helped launch New York’s WRKS-FM. “To grow up with weird, idiosyncratic people who did not look at that as a deficit allowed me and my brothers to embrace doing things differently,” she says. “Like, ‘Yeah, we are black kids raised in Chicago in this devout Christian religion, but also we’re all of these other things. And all of these things can exist as a whole.’ I was lucky to grow up that way. I think it very directly led me to what I’m doing professionally now.”

“I grew up identifying as an outsider. I had these weird, potentially contradictory parts of my identity.”

Back at Skydance, Mayo and company stand out among the framed Tom Cruise posters and comically oversize movie props. Her assistant, Christina (employee number three), a recent Columbia University grad with bleached-out blue hair and a near-encyclopedic knowledge of film, keeps answering her cell phone, “Alana Mayo’s office!” At one point during our photo shoot, a female Skydance executive in slacks and a button-down hovers in a door frame. “I’m loving this. I’m texting Lena,” she teases, referring to Mayo’s fiancée, Lena Waithe, Emmy-winning writer and the creator of The Chi. Mayo lets out a laugh—“I’m never going to live this one down, am I?” she says—but continues to clack away on her laptop as a hairstylist sets the edges on her braids.

Later, while drinking her second coffee of the morning, she talks about her experience of being black in white spaces. “This is how we dress. This is how I wear my hair. And I think it is really, really cool for people like us to occupy these spaces because one feeds the other…. We’re finally at a place where I feel like ‘the system’ is excited by young people coming in with a different point of view,” she says. “To be able to work alongside a company like this”—she gestures around Skydance—“means a big-budget, all-audience movie is possible. It allows us to feel emboldened to change and experiment.”

“My office was always filled with people of color and gays and women.And for that, I was ostracized.” —Lee Daniels

In other words, it allows Outlier to change the industry from the inside out, something that hasn’t always been possible. “My office was always filled with people of color and gays and women. And for that, I was ostracized,” says Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels, for whom Mayo interned while in college at Columbia University. “That Alana is being embraced for it makes my heart swell.” When I ask Mayo whether she identifies as a disruptor, her eyes light up. “I love that word,” she says. “I love disruptor. I love innovation. I’m a contrarian by nature, so anything that is about fucking with the status quo is very exciting to me. I would love to think of this company, and everybody who works at it, as a disruptor.”

But what if this all-stories-welcome wormhole closes? What if the next Black Panther doesn’t break records? Or audiences don’t clamor to see David Makes Man, Outlier’s upcoming OWN series from Moonlight cowriter Tarell Alvin McCraney about growing up in a South Florida housing project? What if disruption becomes passé? Hollywood is, after all, a fickle town. “There is a history in this industry of trending,” Mayo concedes. “I’m not optimistic enough to believe that the moment happening right now will not be a trend.”

But she hopes that by the time the tides shift, too many outliers will already have a seat at the conference room table. “People who are looked at as ‘other’ are kicking ass in the industry right now,” Mayo says. “They are setting themselves up for incredible longevity and creating paths for a ton of people to come in behind them, so it won’t really matter when the powers that be don’t feel this to be valuable anymore. At the risk of sounding obnoxious, we’re trying to build something that feels like a legacy and not like a moment.”

People Think Meghan Markle Is Pregnant Because She Wore a Coat to Princess Eugenie’s Wedding

Meghan Markle can’t leave the house (or palace, I should say) without someone thinking she’s pregnant. Just a few weeks ago, she wore her hair straight for the first time, and half the world took that as an undeniable sign she’s with child.

The speculation is ridiculous and invasive, and it keeps getting worse. The Duchess of Sussex attended Princess Eugenie‘s royal wedding on Friday, October 12 wearing a navy coat. Naturally, many people think this somehow means she’s covering up a baby bump. Here are just a few folks on Twitter convinced Markle is “hiding something” because of this one article of clothing:

I’m confused: When did coats become a sign that someone is with child? When did straight hair, for that matter? I, for one, wore three jackets this week and am miraculously not pregnant. In fact, several of the guests at Princess Eugenie’s wedding added coats to their outfits and are also not expecting. Shocking, I know. It’s almost as if saying the words, “I’m pregnant” is the only way to determine if someone’s actually pregnant.

Below, have a look at all the wedding-goers with chic coats but zero buns in the oven.

Best Camel Coats to Buy This Fall

Camel coats might not be revolutionary but they are timeless. And, as of this year, they’ll also be forever equated with outerwear enthusiast Meghan Markle. The Duchess loves a good coat and frequently wears a camel Max Mara version and this tan one by Sentaler, both of which fit squarely into a royal budget. Luckily, there are lots of other camel coats to choose from that’ll still leave some room in your bank account for fall statement pieces like snakeskin boots or neon clothing. A camel coat is as essential this season as a teddy jacket but without all the fluff, if you prefer simplicity.

In fact, it feels as though now, more than ever, a simple, beautiful coat is something we’re all craving. This need may have to do with that Phoebe Philo/Céline-with-an-é-shaped hole left in everyone’s hearts now that Heidi Silmane took over the beloved label (he’s big on the poufy black party dresses, not so much on the classic, roomy silhouettes). You can also chalk it up the fact that so many recent trends have been very large (bags bigger than your body), very loud (highlighter green) or very out there (bike shorts worn everywhere but on a bike). A good camel coat is a calming comfort in the current fashion storm.

Whether you want the exact Max Mara Markle, a luxurious classic by Helmut Lang, a currently on sale luxury coat from Tory Burch, or an under-$100 option from H&M, there is absolutely a camel coat out there for you. Shop below for the best camel coats you can buy this fall.

Princess Eugenie’s New Husband Said the Sweetest Thing When He Saw Her Royal Wedding Dress

Princess Eugenie got married to Jack Brooksbank today (Friday, October 12), which means royal lip readers everywhere were out in full force. That’s fortunate for those of us who didn’t make the extensive guest list and are left trying to piece together the sweet nothings whispered between the two. The best detail to come from these trained experts, though, was the sweet sentiment Jack said as Eugenie walked down the aisle.

The Daily Mail consulted a lip reader who contends that Jack said, “Oh, my heart … oh, break my heart,” when he saw Eugenie in her dress for the first time.

In fact, Brooksbank was so nervous that he forgot to hold his bride’s hand during the ceremony, which didn’t go unnoticed by Eugenie. “Why aren’t you holding my hand?” Eugenie asked him, according to The Sun‘s lip reader—but let’s not be too hard on the groom for his minor slip-up. After all, he did just get married with the whole world watching.

At one point, according to Vogue, Brooksbank was also seen removing his glasses—which he allegedly wore to get a clear glimpse of his bride—to wipe away some tears. He was also probably a little short of breath, after seeing his bride in her stunning bespoke gown, which was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. The gown was specifically designed to show Eugenie’s spinal scars, which were a result of a surgery she underwent to treat a curvature in her spine when she was young.

“I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you’ll see on Friday [at the wedding], but it’s a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this,” Eugenie told ITV’s This Morning prior to the wedding. “I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Were All About the PDA at Princess Eugenie’s Royal Wedding

Another royal wedding, another public display of affection from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Endless articles have been written about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s famous PDA—from smooching at polo matches to exchanging back massages at various royal engagements to famously holding hands in public before they were married—and Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank was no different. Pics from the nuptials show the couple were up to their usual tricks on Friday morning, holding hands to, from, and during the wedding, hugging, and as Harper’s Bazaar reported, giggling in the pews.

They weren’t the only ones. It looks like Meghan and Harry’s touchy-feely vibes were contagious, because Prince William and Kate Middleton (who were sitting next to them) also had a rare PDA moment: They were photographed holding hands in the pews.

While there’s technically no rule against royal couples showing the public they actually like each other, Meghan and Harry’s PDA often makes headlines because it’s so unusual. “It is rare to see royal couples holding hands on official outings,” Myka Meier, founder and director of etiquette company Beaumont Etiquette, told People.

“Meghan and Prince Harry holding hands at a royal engagement is a refreshingly modern approach to their new role both as a couple and as representatives of the royal family,” she said, adding, “While Prince Harry and Meghan holding hands is atypical for royal engagements, it is a seemingly welcomed gesture to show unity and celebration of their engagement period. There is no protocol that says they can not show affection on official engagements, and this gesture makes them relatable and lovable to the public.”

Melania Trump Finally Addresses Rumors of Her Husband’s Cheating

Bits of Melania Trump’s first-ever televised interview aired Friday on Good Morning America, and the sit-down with ABC reporter Tom Llamas included the First Lady delving into her thoughts on everything from the #MeToo movement to her anti-cyberbullying campaign.

But when she was asked her about her husband’s rumored extramarital affairs, which include a relationship with adult-film star Stormy Daniels, Trump brushed off the alleged infidelity as media speculation.

In a new clip, FLOTUS responds to questions about whether the rumored affairs have put a strain on her marriage by saying, “It is not a concern and a focus of mine. I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do. I know people like to speculate and the media likes to speculate about our marriage.”

Llamas then asks her if she has been hurt by the rumors, and Trump pauses before she answers carefully.

“It’s not always pleasant, of course, but I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true,” she said.

Allegations that President Trump had been unfaithful began circulating after Daniels claimed she’d signed a nondisclosure agreement and received $130,000 from Trump’s lawyers to keep quiet about an affair in 2006. If Daniels’ story is true, it would have happened just after Melania gave birth to her only son with President Trump. Another woman, former Playboy model Karen McDougal, has also alleged that she had an affair with Trump around the same time.

The president has denied both claims.

In Friday’s interview, Melania answered positively when asked if she still loves her husband. “Yes, we are fine,” she said. “It’s what media speculate, and it’s gossip. It’s not always correct stuff.”

The interview special, which is called “Being Melania: The First Lady,” will air in its entirety at 10:00 P.M. Friday on ABC. The sit-down already made headlines earlier this week, following a released clip that showed Trump saying women should have “hard evidence” before making sexual assault claims and for asserting she is one of the most bullied people in the world.

The special is slated to also include her reactions to her controversial “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?'” jacket and her relationship to the Trump administration.

Kate Middleton and Prince William Had a Rare PDA Moment at Princess Eugenie’s Royal Wedding

Princess Eugenie’s wedding was a star-studded affair, but all eyes were still on royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have people abuzz after they were seen holding hands while seated at St. George’s Chapel for the wedding service, a rare public display of affection for the duo.

Take a look:

But that’s not all! Kate and William also shared this moment of affection:

Apparently, there’s no actual etiquette or rule that prevents these two from touching one another in public, Beaumont Etiquette’s founder and director Myka Meier explained to Elle. “There’s no protocol that tells them they can’t hug or kiss or touch,” she said. “There’s no rule book like that. Each senior member of the royal family is trusted to make the judgement calls of what’s appropriate and when. It’s all about being trusted to make those calls on their own.”

But if there’s ever a time to be affectionate, it’s at a wedding, right? The vows, the music, the romance in the air. Princess Eugenie’s nuptials were steeped in the tradition of the monarchy, so why not have Will and Kate add some modernity to the mix?

Obsessed with the Royals? Same. Click here to get Meghan Markle updates—and more—from Glamour’s daily newsletter.

Eugenie, for her part, did what she could to update the affair, by excluding the word “obey” from her vows. “I Eugenie Victoria Helena take thee Jack Christopher Stamp to my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse: for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God’s holy law; and thereto I give thee my troth,” she recited in front of the 850 guests that were in attendance. Her decision to forgo the word “obey” was a choice first initiated by Princess Diana, when she excluded the word from her vows to Prince Charles, the Evening Standard reports.

I’m Lowkey Stalking Dakota Johnson’s Hair

Not to make this all about me, but as a person with very curly hair, celebrity hairstyles rarely impact me. Instead, all the lobs and inventive looks just undercut what I know to be true: I’ll have long layers until I die. So my threshold for celebrity hair obsessions is pretty high. There’s Nicole Kidman’s curls in Moulin Rouge, Julia Roberts’ ringlets in Mystic Pizza, and now, Dakota Johnson’s phenomenal hair. There’s no self-interest in it because I can’t relate to her texture, which is how I know my love is true.

The adoration is a recent thing. Dakota keeps a low profile outside of the Shades of Grey trilogy, I can only assume because the series is such a moneymaker that she can pick her projects carefully. But 2018 is bringing us more Dakota than ever. With Bad Times at the El Royale premiering this week and Suspiria hitting theaters a few days before Halloween, she’s just started hitting the press circuit to promote the two, bringing her incredible hair along for the ride.

Her bangs are the MVP. Most often center-parted, they’re curtain bangs to the prettiest degree, with a hint of straight-across fringe depending on how they lay. The layering is magnificent. Her hair gradually falls into a cool, ’70s-like shag (Suspiria is set in the decade, so that makes sense). The versatility is the best part: whether her hair is pulled half-back, up in a pony, or down and flowing, her face-framing layers manage to skirt the look of prom-y tendrils. Even within a single night’s look, from one angle they look like Audrey Hepburn-esque baby bangs, and from another, like sexy rocker bangs falling into her eyes.

It’s like a magic trick. Barely-there bangs from one angle:

But, what? Out of nowhere, shaggy bangs:

I reached out to Dakota’s hairstylist, Mark Townsend, for some intel. He attributes the excellence to Dakota embracing products. Where before she was a dry shampoo-and-that’s-it woman, Townsend’s recently convinced her to bring some styling extras into the fold.

Townsend finger combs some Dove Curls Defining Mousse into Dakota’s hair and rough drys it with a Dyson blowdryer, he says. When her hair is 90 percent dry, he sprays her ends with Oribe Royal Blowout, and smoothes them with a round brush while her top layer of hair sets in Velcro rollers (I know, very retro, but Townsend says volume is back in a big way).

Honest Beauty Sea Salt Spray gives her bangs that piecey texture, and then Dove Extra Hold Hairspray, sprayed onto a toothbrush, keeps them in place. The rule is to never curl the tendril, Townsend says. He keeps it looking natural by just slightly bending the hair toward her face, and giving her bangs a trim every few weeks to keep them between her eyebrow and lash, which is apparently a crucial inch of space.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George Stole the Show at Princess Eugenie’s Royal Wedding

The second royal wedding of the year is officially underway. Yes, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Friday, October 12 in front of a hodgepodge of celebrity guests, like Cara Delevingne, Ellie Goulding, and Naomi Campbell. The royal family was also in attendance, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—who said “I do” at St. George’s Chapel back in May—plus Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George, a.k.a the true stars of the day.

Seriously, these kids stole the show at Princess Eugenie’s wedding. Prince George was a pageboy during the ceremony, while Princess Charlotte was a bridesmaid, and they took their duties very seriously (read: adorably). The photos of the two of them at the wedding will explain this better than I ever could, so go ahead and check them out, below:

Princess Charlotte already has her royal wave down to an art.

Princess Eugenie looked absolutely stunning at her wedding, wearing a Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos gown. The dress featured a V-neck back, which Princess Eugenie wanted to wear to show the scars from her childhood scoliosis operation. “I’m patron of [the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Appeal] and I had an operation when I was 12 on my back,” she told ITV. “[The dress is] a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this.”
