Halloween season is upon us, meaning you’re probably looking for some new or classic horror to watch. If you intend to do so on Netflix, you’ll want to be armed with all of the category codes (sometimes referred to as Netflix’s secret codes) we’ve got you covered with all the genre codes and collections Netflix has for Halloween 2023.

If you haven’t been introduced to Netflix’s code system yet, here’s a quick overview. Netflix’s library consists of nearly 7,000 titles, if not more, in many regions, and to help filter and categorize them, Netflix hosts thousands of categories. These categories can be accessed easily on the web but can also be done by typing in codes to the search box on mobile and connected TVs.

Netflix Launches New Halloween Collection 2023

Netflix has been experimenting with collections for a while (a big group of genres effectively), and for Halloween, they’ve launched the ENTER IF YOU DARE collection. Netflix did have a similar collection in 2022 but it was called Stream and Scream then.

The collection includes the following genres:

  • This Place is Evil (81476889)
  • All the Scares, Light on the Gore (81725979)
  • Zombies, Vampires and Ghouls (81613745)
  • Teen Screams (52147)
  • Horror Hidden Gems (81613739)
  • Family Halloween Treats (81346195)
  • Modern Horror Classics (81336552)
  • Slashers and Serial Killers (81613750)
  • Halloween Comedies (81510605)
  • Horror Reimagined (81336549)
  • Witchcraft and the Dark Arts (81552046)
  • High Brow Horror (3261672)

The new collection includes some new artwork (and a sizzle reel trailer) featuring familiar characters from Netflix’s roster of Originals. You can clearly see numerous references to Stranger Things – Vecna in the window, Will and his bike on the far right, and the Mind Flayer on one of the pillars. Wednesday is clearly seen front and center, with Texas Chainsaw Massacre also getting a big spot.
