'Eli' is one of Netflix's highly-anticipated horror films, available to stream this October.

It may not even be October yet, but Netflix dropped its schedule for horror and Halloween classics, as well as its original films, on Friday the 13th. So, it may be time to transition into fall. 

Between a slew of Netflix original films, horror films you probably rewatch every year, and some hidden gems, it's a good time to be a horror fan. Or a good time to avoid Netflix if you're like me and hate scary movies.
