There is some debate amongst Halloween enthusiasts as to precisely when Spooky Season officially begins, is it after Labor Day? When pumpkin spice makes its annual return? At the autumnal equinox? Whenever the season starts for you, surely we can all agree that, at the latest, it kicks off on Oct. 1. AMC+ certainly thinks so, because the streaming companion to the cable channel is debuting a new thriller or horror movie every Friday in the month of October. Check below to get all the spine-tingling info you need!
‘Deadstream’ - Oct. 7
A disgraced and demonized internet personality (Joseph Winer) tries to win back his fans by live streaming himself spending a night alone in an abandoned haunted house. However, when he accidentally unleashes a vengeful spirit, his big comeback event becomes a real-time fight for his life (and social relevance) as he faces off with the sinister spirit of the house and her powerful following. Winter wrote and directed the film with Vanessa Winter.
