Another weekend means another round of fresh titles headed to the Netflix streaming library. As October draws to a close, this weekend marking the last full weekend of the month, the streaming giant will be stocking five new titles for subscribers to enjoy. All of the new additions, which join several others made throughout the week, are Netflix originals.
Halloween may only be a week away, but not everything at Netflix is just about spooking up some scares. Among this weekend's additions, subscribers can take a trip to the moon with the streamer's new animated film Over the Moon, or even go for a blast from (the very way back) past and recount the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in Barbarians. Though those hoping for most seasonal options are guaranteed to find what they're looking for by taking a quick browse through the streamer's "Netflix & Chills" lineup, which you can view by clicking here.
