Fall is here, and if you’re looking for an entertaining way to spend a cozy night in, Netflix has an exciting mix of shows and movies — both new releases as well as classic flicks — arriving in October.

The selections range from the much-anticipated new season of “Stranger Things” to comedies like “I Love You Man,” while movies such as the Cult of Chucky and The Reaping will get you spooked just in time for Halloween. Even the wild hit, Donnie Darko, is returning in time for the holiday.

Get your calendar out, because you're going to want to schedule some serious television-watching time next month.
