Halloween may be in the rearview mirror, but the holiday spirit is still alive and well, judging by the continued onslaught of horror releases. It’s another horror feast this month!
November brings a plethora of new releases, gory cult gems, family-friendly offerings, and all-new streaming titles.
Here are ten standout horror titles available to stream in November 2022 on some of the most popular streaming services, as well as when and where you can watch them.
deep fear – Screambox (November 1)

When they discover a bunker once occupied by the Nazis, they are unaware that it is not the only thing left. Something, someone, is chasing them now. Grégory Beghin is directing from a screenplay by Nicolas Tackian.
Satan’s Slaves: Communion – Thrill (November 4)

November brings its sequel, Communion, the first Indonesian film shot with IMAX technology. The sequel sees the family from the first film now living in an apartment after escaping the terror unleashed by the death of their mother. But horror follows them home. Whether Communion even features a fraction of the powerful thrills that Anwar delivered in the first film, we’re in for a freakishly good time.
