'Boo Releases' Already Streaming
"Executive-produced by James Cameron and narrated by Academy Award®-nominated and BAFTA Award-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch ("Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," "Power of the Dog") this spine-tingling documentary series from National Geographic will utilize the latest scientific innovations and leading-edge filmmaking technology to reveal the secret powers and super-senses of the world's most extraordinary animals. The series invites viewers to see and hear beyond normal perception to witness nature in its eerie wonder – from vampiric jumping spiders with a lust for blood, glow-in-the-dark squirrels, to the super-skills and magical forces of both the hunters and the hunted."
Hocus Pocus 2
"A Disney+ Original movie debuting September 30, 2022, exclusively on Disney+, the live-action comedy "Hocus Pocus 2" is a haunting sequel to the Halloween classic which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem.

It's been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow's Eve. "Hocus Pocus 2" also stars Sam Richardson ("The Tomorrow War"), Doug Jones ("The Shape of Water"), Hannah Waddingham ("Ted Lasso"), Whitney Peak ("Gossip Girl"), Belissa Escobedo ("American Horror Stories"), Lilia Buckingham ("Dirt"), Froy Gutierrez ("Teen Wolf"), and Tony Hale ("Veep").

Marvel Studios' first Special Presentation: Werewolf by Night (Disney+ Original Special)
"On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader. In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader's life, the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic-a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster. Inspired by horror films of the 1930s and 1940s, the chilling special aims to evoke a sense of dread and the macabre, with plenty of suspense and scares along the way as we explore a new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"Werewolf by Night" is directed by Michael Giacchino and stars Gael Garcia Bernal, Laura Donnelly and Harriet Sansom Harris."prevnext
