It's time to bring out your supply of beloved Halloween candy and turn on the TV to indulge in the latest Netflix releases for the month. Comedies are coming in hot, with a couple of titles featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest names like Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Eddie Murphy, Michael Douglas, and more. Michael B. Jordan executive produces and stars in Raising Dion, and Cardi B makes her debut as a musical judge on the hip-hop competition series, Rhythm + Flow. Toward the end of the month, you can watch Gaten Matarazzo (Stranger Things) host Prank Encounters, the new prank show that mixes comedy and horror. You'll also find the long-awaited return of BBC series Peaky Blinders, the latest season of POP TV's Schitt's Creek, and a '90s movie that may have scarred you for life in your teens, Trainspotting (why not revisit during the Halloween season?).

This star-studded comedy shines a light on the pervasive corruption that’s often weaved within the inner workings of the world’s wealthiest people. In this film, Meryl Streep plays a widow investigating a fake insurance policy that points to two Panama City lawyers (Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas) who are behind the whole sham. The cast also includes Jeffrey Wright, Melissa Rauch, David Schwimmer, and more. Available October 18.

Dolemite Is My Name

Eddie Murphy stars as comedian Rudy Ray Moore, a real-life comedian and rapper whose stage character, Dolemite, propelled him to stardom. Despite the lack of support from critics, Moore surpassed people’s expectations and made a name for himself during the Blaxploitation era. Keegan-Michael Key, Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Snoop Dogg, Barry Shabaka Henley, and Tasha Smith also star in the film. Available October 25.
