Some of us don’t have the luxury to travel for a dreamy mini-vacation every weekend, but our laptops and comfort-food have proved to be faithful companions for circumstances such as these. And just in time for Halloween times, Netflix just officially made October binge-watch month. We probably have sleepless nights ahead, especially with the many, many old, favourite thrillers and horror films recently added. But as for the new stuff, here's what we recommend from this October's newly added shows and films which are enough reason to ignore the weather and stay home.
