If you’re reading this, there’s a pretty good chance you watched a *ton* of horror movies in October. If so, you might be suffering from what real doctors call “Halloween Hangover,” where you’re a little burnt out on horror flicks. The best treatment for this condition is a little horror hair-of-the-dog. Let’s see what spooky stuff is heading to all our favorite streaming services this month!
It’s gonna be hard for Netflix to top October’s release of Stranger Things 2, but it’s not a competition. No months are losers, and the winners are all the viewers. Here’s what Netflix has scheduled to hit in November (or Netflixvember. To any corporate executives out there, feel free to use Netflixvember next year. That one’s on me.)
The Dinner (available November 6th)- Four upper-class parents must decide how to handle a crime their sons committed.

IFC Midnight only has two new horror releases dropping this month.

Sweet Virginia (available November 17)- tells the story of a former rodeo champion and his new acquaintance, an extremely violent young man.
Troma is celebrating this month with what they call Naughty November! As such, don’t assume you can watch any of these movies at work. To be fair, though, if you’re in the habit of watching Troma Now! at work, you can probably get away with it. Either your boss has no idea, or you’re the boss.
There are two world premieres hitting Troma Now! this month, but neither of them are horror films. Here’s the new horror this month:
Meathook Massacre 3: You have to appreciate a film that tells you everything you need to know in the title.
In addition to Meathook Massacre 3, keep an eye out for short film, The Quacky Slasher. Both will be available, along with the rest of the new Troma Now! releases, November 1st.
As to be expected, there are fewer new horror movies releasing in November than October. That’s a bummer, but there’s sure to be another large batch of holiday horrors dropping next month! Until then, enjoy these!
