Black Box

Directed by Osei-Kuffour Jr., this suspenseful thriller follows a widower (played by Mamoudou Athie) who loses his memory in a car accident that also killed his wife. In order to get his life back on track, he undergoes a harrowing treatment that does more than jog his memories.

Out October 6 on Amazon Prime Video.

Hubie Halloween

Every year, Hubie Dubois (played by Adam Sandler) spends Halloween ensuring that his hometown of Salem can celebrate the spooky holiday safely. But despite his devotion to his fellow townspeople, he’s mocked by kids and adults alike. This year, though, people have started to disappear and Hubie might be the only one who can save the night. Hubie Halloween also stars Kevin James, Maya Rudolph, Kenan Thompson and more.

Out October 7 on Netflix.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor

Loosely based on the 1989 novella The Turn Of The Screw, this nine-episode horror series chronicles the supernatural experiences of a young governess after moving to the Bly manor to take care of two young orphans. The Haunting Of Bly Manor is the successor to 2018’s The Haunting Of Hill House and features the same creative team, including creator Mike Flanagan, although the shows are not narratively connected.

Picking up where the series last left off, the second and final part of The Spanish Princess follows Catherine of Aragon (played by Charlotte Hope) as she struggles between her duties as a wife and a ruler.
