The Best Halloween Movies on Netflix Right Now



The Best Halloween Movies on Netflix Right Now

It is absolutely never too early to start getting in the Halloween spirit. Pumpkin spice has officially arrived, there’s a pumpkin patch on every corner, and the debate over whether candy corn is actually good is raging once again. And while this year’s Halloween is sure to be a bit different, the #1 way to get in the spooky spirit is still with a good movie, whether it’s a seasonal classic, a new horror gem, or a family favorite that just screams fall vibes.

At the moment, Netflix doesn’t have much in the way of actual Halloween-themed movies (hopefully some more will pop up as October approaches.) But no worries, the streaming service still has plenty of horror-tinged films from spooky to terrifying, and we’ve narrowed down the list to the best, scariest, and downright fun movies in the bunch. So grab the candy corn (if that’s your thing), fire up some apple cider, and settle in for the best Halloween movies on Netflix right now.

Editor’s Note: This post was last updated on October 29th to include Nightbooks, Labyrinth and Hell Fest.


RELATED: The Best Horror Movies on Netflix Right Now


Director: David Yarovesky

Writers: Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis

Cast: Winslow Fegley, Krysten Ritter, Lidya Jewett


Somewhere between spooky and downright scary, Nightbooks is a wonderful new entry in the “gateway horror” canon that’s delightful for (not too young) kids and adults alike. The Sam Raimi-produced YA adventure stars Krysten Ritter as a glamorous but very wicked witch who traps children to do her bidding. Following two kids (played by Winslow Fegley and Lidya Jewett) attempting to escape her grasp, Nightbooks builds a fantastical world of magic and monsters that steers clear of gruesome gore while still delivering plenty of ooey-goeey scares. It’s one of the best Netflix originals of the year and the perfect pick for folks looking for something new to add to their Halloween watchlist. – Haleigh Foutch


Director: Jim Henson

Writer: Terry Jones


Cast: David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, Brian Henson, Ron Mueck

Labyrinth isn’t scary, heck it’s not even spooky all that often, but if your favorite part of Halloween is the pageantry, oh baby, does Labyrinth have pageantry. And with stunning work from the Jim Henson Company, it also has all kinds of curious creatures, exquisite world-building, and the fantastical sense of otherworldly oddity we all love about the holiday that celebrates the thinning of the veil. Oh, and David Bowie rocked the socks off a whole dang generation as the Goblin King. Jennifer Connelly stars as Sarah, a teenage girl who has to journey through a magical maze after her baby brother is taken by the Goblin King, encountering all kinds of curious creatures, surreal settings, and ultimately, a magical masquerade. It might not be an outright “Halloween movie,” but it’s got all the right spirit where it counts, and a soundtrack full of classics that make a regular appearance on plenty of seasonal playlists. – Haleigh Foutch

Hell Fest

Director: Gregory Plotkin


Writers: Seth M. Sherwood, Blair Butler, Akela Cooper

Cast: Amy Forsyth, Reign Edwards, Bex Taylor-Klaus, and Tony Todd

If you’re looking for more of a straight-up slasher with all the Halloween trappings, Hell Fest is a solid recent addition to the Halloween watchlist that you might have missed. Set in a horror theme park during Halloween season, Hell Fest follows a group of teens stalked by a masked killer as they make their way through the spooky mazes. While the filmmaking veers towards familiar by-the-books slasher beats, the setting itself is fun and energetic enough to keep things chugging along and at a tight 89 minutes, the film doesn’t overstay its welcome. Bonus: It has horror legend Tony Todd living it up as the theme park’s creator. It’s an underseen seasonal treat with a clever concept and fantastic setting that hits all the right beats, even if the rhythm ultimately feels a bit too familiar. – Haleigh Foutch

Watch Hell Fest on Netflix



Directors: Sam Fell and Chris Butler

Writer: Chris Butler

Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, John Goodman, Alex Borstein, Leslie Man, Jeff Garlin, Elaine Stritch, and Tucker Albrizzi

Here’s a perfect Halloween movie that both kids and adults will appreciate. The stop-motion animated film ParaNorman hails from LAIKA, the same studio behind movies like Coraline and Kubo and the Two Strings, and it revolves around a young kid named Norman who has the ability to see and speak with the dead. This ability comes in handy when his small Massachusetts town is overrun by terrifying ghosts, and his friends and family rely on him to try and reason with them. The story draws heavily from iconic 80s movies like The Goonies and E.T. but never feels derivative, and it sets the mood for that Spooky Season spirit with a lot of references to the Salem Witch Trials and such. But what really sets ParaNorman apart is that it goes to surprising places, carrying with it an emotional message about bullying and anger, and the complexity of emotions that kids can sometimes feel. – Adam Chitwood

Hubie Halloween

Director: Steven Brill

Writers: Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler

Cast: Adam Sandler, Julie Bowen, Kevin James, Ray Liotta, Shaquille O’Neal, Maya Rudolph, Steve Buscemi, and Noah Schapp

Okay so Hubie Halloween may not be “high art,” but if you’re looking for a silly comedy with all the Halloween trappings, this might be a good pick for you. The Adam Sandler film follows a deli employee in Salem, Massachusetts who fancies himself a “Halloween Monitor” on Halloween. The role becomes much more serious when news arrives about an escaped convict. This movie is silly and frankly not great, but it’s a valid choice if you’re looking to watch something that’s very Halloween-themed. – Adam Chitwood

Watch Hubie Halloween Netflix


Crimson Peak

Director: Guillermo del Toro

Writers: Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins

Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam

Everyone loves a great ghost story, and nobody tells a ghost story like filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The director’s underrated 2015 film Crimson Peak is less a horror movie than a gothic romance, but there are scares and terorrs to be sure. Set in 1901, the story follows an aspiring author (Mia Wasikowska) who meets a dashing English gentleman (Tom Hiddleston) and falls in love. The two quickly marry, and she moves to a remote part of England to live in an aging estate with her new husband and his icy sister (Jessica Chastain). The estate ends up being full of ghosts, and frightful twists abound as our young protagonist finds herself in over her head. This is the perfect Halloween movie for folks who love Gothic stories with a capital “G.” – Adam Chitwood

Monster House

Director: Gil Kenan

Writers: Dan Harmon, Rob Schrab, and Pamela Pettier

Cast: Steve Buscemi, Nick Cannon, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kevin James, Jason Lee, and Catherine O’Hara

The 2006 CG-animated film Monster House is a solid pick if you’re looking for a haunted house story that’s appropriate for kids. As the title suggests, the story takes place in a neighborhood where one sentient house terrorizes its residents on Halloween. It’s up to the kids in the neighborhood to prove the house is evil, and to try and stop its reign of terror. – Adam Chitwood

The Fear Street Trilogy

Director: Leigh Janiak

Writers: Leigh Janiack and Phil Graziadei (Part One), Zak Olkewicz (Part Two), Phil Graziadei and Leigh Janiak and Kate Trefry (Part Three)

Cast: Kiana Madeira, Olivia Scott Welch, Benjamin Flores Jr., Sadie Sink, and more


For the ultimate Halloween movie marathon, you can’t go wrong with the Fear Street trilogy. These three movies were released this past summer, and offer up a buffet of slasher and horror movie goodness, tracking one story across three different timelines. It begins with Fear Street: 1994, where teens in the town of Shadyside are chased by unkillable slashers who they believe are tied to a curse on the town. Fear Street: 1978 is a full-on summer camp slasher as more is revealed about the curse and town’s backstory, and the final installment Fear Street: 1666 tells the full origin story of the Shadyside witch. All three movies are a blast. – Adam Chitwood

The Conjuring

Director: James Wan

Writers: Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes


Cast: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, and Lili Taylor

If you just want to watch something that’s going to scare the heck out of you, watch The Conjuring. The film that spawned a franchise opened in 2013 to blockbuster box office, as audiences flocked to this tale of horror. Inspired by true events, the film finds paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) coming to the assistance of the Perron family at their Rhode Island farmhouse in 1971. The scares in this one are terrifying, and while sequels and spinoffs have furthered the mythology, nothing touches the original in terms of pure nightmare fuel. – Adam Chitwood

Watch The Conjuring on Netflix

The Ritual

Director: David Bruckner

Writer: Joe Barton


Cast: Rafe Spall, Arsher Ali, Robert James-Collier, Sam Troughton

It’s been a long wait for David Bruckner’s first feature film, but fortunately, it was worth it. The filmmaker behind standout segments in Signal and V/H/S made his feature debut this year with The Ritual, a Netflix original that digs into the well of shame and regret to mine piercing, distinctly adult terrors. Oh, and there’s a great monster too. The Ritual follows four friends into the woods, where they venture out mourn the death of a dear friend, but once they’re there, a spindly, scarcely seen creature haunts them every step of the way. Bruckner takes his time building the terror, offering brief glimpses at their monstrous stalker and using the natural camouflage of the forest to his advantage in staging his scares, and between the chilling looks at the creature, he takes his time fleshing out the trauma shared by these old friends and the conflicts that would threaten to tear them apart even if they weren’t being hunted by a supernatural force. The end result is a mature, understated horror movie that slowly settles in under your skin with plenty of spooky folklore vibes that feel right at home in the Halloween season. — Haleigh Foutch

I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House doesn’t have much in the way of story, but what it lacks in narrative, it makes up in atmospheric chills and slow-burn dread. That said, if you like your horror with propulsive action, move right along to the next entry because this one’s definitely a slow burn. The payoff is the sensation that you’re watching some immersive, slippery nightmare unfold on screen.

Writer-director Oz Perkins never gets flashy or too-clever with his tale. Instead, he sets a simple table with elegance. Told in dulcet, almost whispered voiceovers by Ruth Wilson’s hospice nurse, Lily, the film makes two things clear from the start — ghosts are real, and Lily is about to become one of them. As always, Wilson is enchanting on screen and her terror is always convincing. Pensive and patient, the movie is more about mortality than ghosts (though it’s got one or two chilling visual gags up its sleeve), and the unavoidable fact that death waits, unrelenting, for us all. — Haleigh Foutch

A Ghost Story

Director/Writer: David Lowery


Cast: Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara

If you want to add an existential crisis to your Halloween funtimes, then A Ghost Story is for you! This 2017 drama finds Casey Affleck playing a man who dies but then comes back to haunt his wife (Rooney Mara) and her house. There are no big special effects, it’s simply Affleck wearing a white sheet and moping around. But the construction of the film, and the incredible score, drive home the largess of existence and the sorrow of loss. This one’s certainly unique. – Adam Chitwood

The Babysitter

Director: McG

Writer: Brian Duffield


Cast: Samara Weaving, Bella Thorne, Judah Lewis, Robbie Amell, Hana Mae Lee, Emily Alyn Lind, Andrew Bachelor, Leslie Bibb, Ken Marino

This action-packed horror comedy sets a perfect Halloween mood for folks who might be looking for a little blood-soaked thrill without giving themselves nightmares. Based on a killer script from Brian Duffield, The Babysitter stars Samara Weaving in an absurdly stunning, star-promising performance as the titular babysitter, who’s hiding some deviously dark secrets from the boy she sits for. Indulging in a bit of a rebellious streak one night, the kid doesn’t take the shot she gives him and stays awake long enough to walk right into a Satanic ritual, setting off an insane, combustive series of events that pit him against a bunch of beautiful and ambitious young adults who are willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want. Robbie Amell , in particular, has deliciously unhinged charisma, but in general, the whole movie is crackling with personality and crowd-pleasing surprises. — Haleigh Foutch

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its $70 Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling




Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its  Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

After years of anticipation from DC fans, Warner Bros finally found a way to introduce Barbara Gordon to live-action, announcing a solo movie for the hero with the developing Leslie Grace-led film. Batgirl, which finished filming earlier this year, has been scheduled to hit HBO Max sometime this year, however according to a number of new reports, Warner Bros doesn’t want Batgirl to see the light of day. Outlets are reporting that $70 million project is being scrapped after test screenings scared off the studio on the movie. 

Batgirl has been called “irredeemable” by a reported “top Hollywood source” found by The NY Post. Per the report, the movie will be “shelved,” but it has yet to be confirmed by the studio if it’s purely a rumor or a bombshell piece of news for one of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC movies.  

The Wrap backed up this report, sharing it had additionally heard via insiders that the movie “did not work” for studio executives – made by Bad Boys For Life and Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah for a reported budget of over $70 million (though it may have ultimately cost the studio $90 million by the time cameras finished rolling). 

The news could perhaps be the product of the recent change in Warner Bros’ leadership, with CEO David Zaslav becoming the new big boss since WB merged with Discovery. There was some rumored talk of the previous WB chair Toby Emmerich considering Batgirl for a theatrical release rather than a HBO Max exclusive, however, but the new reports suggest the film isn’t testing to the level of a big-screen project and may be removed from getting any kind of release. 

Batgirl would not only introduce Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, but is features a stacked cast including the return of Michael Keaton as Batman and J.K. Simmons as James Gordon. Brendan Fraser plays the film’s villain, Ted Carson a.k.a. Firefly. It’s arguably unheard of for a project as high-profile as this one to lose any form of avenue for distribution. 


Apparently, a move like this is not uncharacteristic for Warner Bros’ new CEO, however, who previously shut down the failed streaming service CNN+ weeks after it launched (it reportedly cost $300 million to put together). There is some restructuring of DC projects currently underway behind the scenes, with David Zaslav on the search for a someone to fill a role much like Marvel boss Kevin Feige has at Marvel Studios. 

Coming off San Diego Comic-Con late last month, Marvel Studios announced and showcased a lineup of projects planned until 2025 including two more Avengers films, whilst DC did not bring anything from Batgirl to its panel. Instead, Warner Bros chose to only focus on Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, both of which have set release dates later this year. Warner Bros. Discovery is set to report its earnings for this past business quarter on Thursday; it’s possible we’ll learn more then.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere




High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

What time is it? Summer time!

Well, that’s what the students of East High are saying in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. I know, the name is a mouthful, but honestly, this show is a whole lot of fun and if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. The first two seasons were great, from the songs in Season 1 to the drama in Season 2, and when it was announced that the series would be getting a Season 3 and 4, I was all on board. 

Now that I have watched the first episode of Season 3, I am even more excited for the next episodes to come, and that premiere has me all in my feelings – specifically these five. 


Man, this show makes me so nostalgic for when I was younger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I would never travel back in time to then, just because I was so young and didn’t know half the stuff I know now, but there is just something about listening to the soundtrack of some of these original songs from the High School Musical movies that just get me. While we don’t get many songs in the first episode, we get the classic, “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2 within the few three minutes of the show and ugh, the memories. 


If you were a tween or kid back in 2007 and watched HSM2 when it premiered on Disney Channel, you know this song just as well as I do. And for years, I sang this song on the last day of school – heck, I still sing it now whenever warm weather comes around and I’m two years out of college. I love this music, and I can already tell from just this first episode that this season is going to make me so nostalgic. 


I’m really curious to see what they’re going to do with this camp in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

For those who don’t know, the first two seasons of this series were pretty much based around the first film’s premise. The show takes place in a world where the movies exist, but instead of the actors from the High School Musical cast that we’re familiar with, we are introduced to students who are auditioning for those iconic roles. And over the last two seasons, we’ve watched them grow into brilliant performers while singing in productions of both High School Musical and Beauty and the Beast, with covers and original songs all along the way. 

But the whole entire point of the first two seasons was that this show took place in the same high school where the movies were filmed. So it’s only natural to think that the second season might end up happening at the country club that was in High School Musical 2, but nope – we are at a summer camp, something that was never talked about in the original movies. 

The arrival of everyone coming to this summer camp is fun, but it makes me wonder how they’re going to include the songs from High School Musical 2 into this season when it’s not at the same location as the film, but it’s still interesting to watch, nonetheless. 


Dude, I love Olivia Rodrigo – and I mean that. This girl has done so much these last two years and watching her in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is always a joy. 


But what really makes me so proud of her is that I’m not even just proud of the actress, but the character as well. Nini is this young star who is a little afraid to take these big risks but she does so anyway, knowing that she has this big break she can’t lose, which was the big theme of this first episode. She goes away on this road trip with a producer over the summer so she can record songs, giving her that shot, and I am so proud of her for doing that. 

Olivia Rodrigo plays her perfectly, and while I know that her character was demoted to a guest role thanks to Rodrigo’s budding music career, I can’t help but be proud, because wow, she has blown up. It makes me want to watch her documentary on Disney+ again


I know I said earlier on that I was curious as to how they’re going to really change up this season with this new location. But, about twenty minutes in, I genuinely was feeling eager to see where this show would go – specifically the dynamics of new characters. 

For two seasons, we have pretty much been surrounded by the same characters, and while we have grown to love them, I think this season was the one where we truly needed a change in not only scenery, but characters as well. And this first episode brought a ton of them in. 

One of the scenes that got me really eager to see what happens with these new characters was when Gina, Ashlyn and Kourtney, three clear as day theater kids, find out they have to share a cabin with Gadget (a new character) and two other girls – and you can clearly tell at first that they are not feeling the vibe, and you can almost smell the problems from a mile away. 

That screams great television, and it’s got me wondering how much more drama this show is going to produce over the next episodes with these new dynamics. I’m so eager to see. 



Seeing Corbin Bleu in the premiere episode made me very excited to see where this fictionalized version of him is going to go next. 

Usually, when it comes to the original members from the High School Musical movies, we’ll get some pictures from them from the old high school – like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron both recently taking pics there in 2022 – but I didn’t think anyone would come back to the show. We had Lucas Grabeel and Kaycee Stroh in Season 1 but no one in Season 2, so I’m super pumped to see Corbin Bleu back for this season.

Not only that, but Jason Earles. Do you guys know who he is? The moment I saw him as Dewey, the director of Camp Shallow Lake, I practically screamed. This man is Disney Channel royalty. He was not only a co-star on Hannah Montana but also on Kickin’ It and I can’t believe he is in another Disney show and it has me so excited. 

I’m not sure how often he and Bleu are going to be on the show, but I know for a fact that those two appearing on that stage has me excited for what this season holds and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Could Zac Efron be next?

What are you guys looking forward to with Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series? All I know is that if I don’t get a cover of “Fabulous” by Carlos in this season, I will riot. I demand it, Disney+!

The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie




The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie

Book adaptations of big-time novels always seem to go over well with audiences, and have for plenty of years, with movie sagas such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings taking over the box office. But, a newcomer is arriving on the movie scene, one which should have been adapted almost as soon as it came out, if you ask me.

The School for Good and Evil, an amazing addition to the fantasy genre, is finally getting its own adaptation into the film world – but not in theaters. However, it will be appearing as a Netflix movie, on the popular streaming website. However, what else do we know about this upcoming film? What is it going to be about? Who is going to be in it? There are plenty of things that you might not know, but we do. Here are some quick things we know about the upcoming Netflix film.

The School For Good And Evil Release Date Is Set For October 21

Mark your calendars, fantasy lovers, as The School for Good and Evil is going to be coming out as part of the 2022 movie release schedule! Announced with the official poster from the Netflix Twitter page, it was confirmed that The School for Good and Evil would release on the popular streaming platform in Fall 2022, specifically on October 21. 

Talk about a great addition to all the fun Halloween movies we’ll be watching during that time of year – I can always use a little good and evil in my life.

The School For Good And Evil Has A Star-Studded Cast

With an adaptation like The School for Good and Evil, we all knew that the cast needed to be amazing. And, luckily, there’s no shortage of amazing additions to this Netflix movie. First, let’s take a look at the two leads characters of the film, Sophie and Agatha, where the story begins. These two roles will be played by Sophia Anna Caruso, known for her role in the Broadway musical Beetlejuice, and Sofia Wylie, who stars on a Disney+  show you really should watch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Wylie is especially excited for her role in The School for Good and Evil. In an interview with MTV, she talked about her part as Agatha and how she’s excited to “bring some realness” to the character that hadn’t been seen before. She described Agatha’s struggles with internal and external beauty through her own experience, saying that it’s something she can relate to and that it’s an important message to teach.

That’s something that I personally can really relate to, that voice inside of your head, how much power it has. I deal with those doubts and those insecurities. And I think I can really bring some realness to Agatha in that sense because I know, as a teenage girl, it can be very difficult to overcome that voice.

Adding on to this cast, Deadline reported that two megastars, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, signed on for two of the main roles in the upcoming film. Theron is set to play Lady Lesso, and Washington will portray a teacher at the school, Professor Dovey.

In addition to these two, in another article, Deadline reported that Laurence Fishburne, known for his roles in The Matrix trilogy and many other films, as well as action star Michelle Yeoh, from movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Crazy Rich Asians, and her TV role in Star Trek: Discovery, have stepped up to be in The School for Good and Evil. Fishburne will play the Schoolmaster – a role that sounds quite fitting for someone of his talents, and Yeoh will portray another teacher, Professor Anemone.

Also for the film, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, and Freya Theodora Parks will play Anadil, Dot and Hester, three young women who are a part of The Coven in The School for Good and Evil, as confirmed by a behind-the-scenes look with the author of the original novel, Soman Chainani on YouTube.

Already, this film is shaping up to be filled to the brim with some of the Hollywood elite. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do with the material they are given, because it’s about to get magical.

The School For Good And Evil Will Follow The Bestselling Book Series

For those who don’t know, The School for Good and Evil is composed of several novels in a series. Netflix confirmed that this new movie will be based on the series by Soman Chainani, and from the premise of the film, it’s looking to be exactly like the first novel.

As confirmed by the description from the trailer for the new movie on YouTube, The School for Good and Evil is going to follow two best friends, Sophia and Agatha, who are swept into a world of trying to balance both good and evil when they are given different roles, but this in turn causes their lives to turn upside down. 

I’m already on board for a story like this. Two opposing personalities who end up being trained in styles that they thought they weren’t aligned with? Thrown into unlikely situations? Fantasy elements? My god, I can almost feel the franchise coming. Netflix has a great addition with this one.

Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig Is Directing The School For Good And Evil

I don’t think there could have been another perfect choice for the director for The School for Good and Evil than Paul Feig. The legendary director has produced some of the biggest comedic hits in the last ten years. For example, Feig directed the smash-hit Bridesmaids back in 2011, the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters, the Emilia Clarke Christmas comedy Last Christmas, the comedy thriller, A Simple Favor, and so many others.

Besides movies, Paul Feig has also directed multiple episodes of several incredible sitcoms, such as The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The School for Good and Evil novels have an amazing comedic element to them, and I can only imagine what a comedic director like Paul Feig will bring to the table in this new film.

Finding Neverland Screenwriter David Magee Wrote The Screenplay For The School For Good And Evil

When it comes to an adapted screenplay, you always have to make sure that you find the right person to do it, because with novels, there are so many details that need to somehow make it into the movie. The School for Good and Evil found its screenwriter in David Magee.


Magee is a perfect choice, because not only has he been around the business for some time, he’s had plenty of experience in writing fantasy, working on films such as the Academy-Award winning Life of Pi, the Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, and wrote the screenplay for Finding Neverland, the story of the author who created the legendary character, Peter Pan. Truly, he has great experience up his sleeves, and I’m eager to see what he’ll do with the fantastic story that is The School for Good and Evil.

The School For Good And Evil Has Finished Filming 

As you can expect for a film that already has a trailer, The School for Good and Evil finished production for their film not too long ago. From a tweet on Twitter from Netflix Geeked, it was confirmed back in July of 2021 that filming had wrapped on the film and was entering into the post-production phases. 

Watch The Trailer For The School For Good And Evil 

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for The School for Good and Evil, be sure to watch it now, as you won’t want to miss out on the magic. 

With an amazing cast, awesome story, and some really cool looking set pieces featured in the trailer, The School for Good and Evil is looking to be an amazing addition to Netflix’s original film line-up. I can’t wait for this movie to pop up as part of the 2022 Netflix movie schedule. I’m practically counting down the days.
