In celebration of, or at least abuse of, the new Grumpire Letterboxd page, we’re launching a new series of lists. Some help summarize our more complex essays which cover lots of films; some offer supplements for additional viewing on a topic we’ve covered. Or, as with our initial offering here, indulge a film fetish of ours: the annual deluge of new, spooky streaming platform exclusives made and released for Halloween. For the past few years, nearly every streamer has dropped a bunch of brand new titles to take advantage of, sorry, reward our collective obsession with horror. This has yielded absolute classics like Netflix’s Hubie Halloween (2020) and curiosities like Tubi’s remake of Terror Train (2022) ~ and a sequel!
So take a look at our new list of 2023 spooky streaming exclusives, and be sure to let us know in the Letterboxd comments if there is anything we’ve missed! We’ll be updating it as we discover more.
