JustWatch: Scary Content Dominated October Movie Streaming

Seven of the top 10 movies streamed in October were related to the horror genre, led by Universal Pictures’ 2018 reboot Halloween and 2022’s Halloween Ends, reportedly the last release featuring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laura Strode, the erstwhile fictional high school good girl targeted by serial killer Michael Myers since 1978.

The Disney+ exclusive release of Hocus Pocus 2, more a spooky family comedy than outright horror, rounded out the podium, according to JustWatch, which tracks the SVOD streaming habits of 20 million users across 59 markets, including the United States.

The non-genre titles in the month’s top 10 included Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick, A24’s Everything Everywhere All at Once and Focus Features’ The Northman.

The top three streamed episodic programs included HBO Max’s “House of the Dragon,” Netflix’s “The Watcher” and Peacock reruns of “Yellowstone.”
