The Fall of the House of Usher

October is notorious for being the scariest month on the calendar, and nothing is scarier than the soulless, profit-chasing monsters who run pharmaceutical companies. Netflix's new shows and movies in October feature a pair of highlights that attack pill pushers, first with the genuinely scary miniseries The Fall of the House of Usher, from horror maestro Mike Flanagan, the creator of The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass. Later this month, it's the decidedly less scary Pain Hustlers, a poorly reviewed movie about a conspiracy at a pharma company that's only being highlighted because of its megawatt stars, Emily Blunt and Chris Evans. Also of note this month is the teen drama Everything Now and the latest seasons of the French thriller Lupin and the animated comedy Big Mouth.

Scroll on for more on the month's highlights, plus the full list of everything coming to and leaving Netflix in October 2023.

Everything Now

Everything Now


Lupin Season 3 (Oct. 5)

Staying undercover is an easy task for Assane Diop (Omar Sy): He's a seasoned gentleman thief and the master of disguises, after all. But keeping out of the public eye may prove a little more challenging when he's the most wanted man in France. That's the case for Assane in Lupin Season 3, thanks to his sworn nemesis Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre) who framed him for murder. The first two seasons were most delightful to watch when Assane suavely deceived the rich and the powerful and swiftly evaded their pursuit. He is like a magician with a neverending arsenal of tricks, and the curtains are about to rise for what's bound to be a mesmerizing third act. -Kat Moon [Trailer]

Everything Now Season 1 (Oct. 5)

This edgy, British teen comedy-drama follows a young woman who's fresh out of treatment for an eating disorder and returns to high school looking to make up for lost time by checking things off her bucket list. Partying? Check. Breaking the law? Check. Sex? Check. Yes, even though she's only missed out on several months, in teen time, that may as well be decades. [Trailer]

The Fall of the House of Usher Season 1 (Oct. 12)

If anyone can adapt one of Edgar Allan Poe's timeless works, it's Mike Flanagan. The mind behind Netflix's recent string of atmospheric and eerie horror hits The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass, Flanagan is rounding up his recurring band of actors to stage a modern take on Poe's 1839 classic The Fall of the House of Usher. But rumor has it the series will also lean into other Poe properties, evidenced by the "Nevermore" tagline and Carla Gugino's ominous raven-inspired shapeshifting demon. The series will seemingly take inspiration from the infamous Sackler family for the story of the ruthless Roderick Usher (Bruce Greenwood), founder of Fortunato Pharmaceuticals, who must face his past when his heirs start to die at the hands of a mysterious figure. In other words, this Halloween's theme is karma. -Hunter Ingram [Trailer]

Pain Hustlers (Oct. 27)

If TV and movie trends are any indication, it's cool to rip the pharmaceutical industry to shreds. This Netflix original film stars Emily Blunt as a mother who joins a flailing pharma startup in Florida, and ends up finding herself in the middle of a criminal conspiracy. Chris Evans stars as her coworker and Andy Garcia stars as their unhinged boss, so it has the star power. However, reviews of the film have been stinky, so it looks like this is another glossy Netflix movie with A-listers that isn't actually that good. Still, it's a light month, and who doesn't love Blunt and Evans? -Tim Surette [Trailer]
