There’s good news for everyone planning to dress up like a couch potato for Halloween. Netflix, HBO Now, Amazon Prime, and Hulu unveiled their digital streaming lineups for October and there’s enough new movies, returning series, and creepy holiday-themed specials to keep even the pickiest of viewers glued to their tubes until they’ve eaten their last piece of trick-or-treat candy.

Netflix’s most anticipated October arrival is “Stranger Things 2,” the follow-up to last year’s ‘80s-set, Emmy-nominated, sci-fi horror series about a group of small-town kids who stumble into a bizarre mystery involving supernatural foes, government experiments, and a telepathic little girl. The digital streaming juggernaut is also adding a slew of scary movies, from new originals like “1922”—one of this year’s many Stephen King adaptations—to previously released films like “Cult of Chucky,” and “13 Demons.”

Upcoming Netflix originals unrelated to Halloween include Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” starring Stern Show guests Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, and Adam Sandler,” and a comedy special from past Stern Show guest Patton Oswalt. There are also a handful of classic films coming to Netflix, including Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight”—which the legendary director has discussed at length with Howard—and “Tommy Boy,” starring “Saturday Night Live” alum David Spade and his longtime friend and collaborator Chris Farley.

Amazon Prime drops a handful of recent acclaimed films in October, including Stern Show guest Jeremy Renner’s Oscar-nominated sci-fi drama “Arrival.” The streamer is also debuting all-new seasons of original shows (like “Red Oaks”) and popular series from other networks, including “American Horror Story” Season 6 featuring music icon and frequent Stern Show guest Lady Gaga. Amazon also unveils a cache of creepy films in time for Halloween, including classic ‘80s fare, like “Ghoulies” and “Pet Sematary” and more recent offerings, including “Blair Witch” and “Awaken the Shadowman.”

HBO has a handful of Halloween offerings, including films “Lights Out,” “Split,” “The Ninth Gate,” “The Purge: Election Year,” and Kevin Bacon’s recent supernatural horror film “The Darkness.” But the streamer and premium network’s most anticipated arrivals may well be Larry David’s long-awaited return to “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Keanu Reeve’s recently released hitman sequel “John Wick: Chapter 2,” and the Steven Spielberg documentary featuring interview with Stern Show guests J.J. Abrams and Drew Barrymore, among many others.

Hulu, meanwhile, adds more Halloween films than you can count in October, including everything from supernatural thrillers (“What Lies Beneath”) to classics (“Little Shop of Horrors,” “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”) to several gory films from Stern Show veteran Eli Roth (“Hostel,” “Cabin Fever”). The streamer also adds “Too Funny to Fail,” a documentary about Dana Carvey’s short-lived but well-remembered sketch comedy series, which featured more Stern Show guests than you can shake a stick at, including Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Robet Smigel, and of course the master-impressionist himself.

But those are just a few pumpkins among this month’s patch. Here’s the complete list of what’s coming to Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and Amazon Prime in October:
