New on Netflix today! September 29, 2015

It's about time to start celebrating Halloween, Netflixians! And today, with two new horror-themed, straight-to-video kidflicks, Netflix is starting you off right: assuming you're a mentally challenged 8 year-old, at least. Also, we're getting a new season of Bones (Jesus, that show has lasted a while) and a biopic about Nelson Mandela.
