Netflix recruited the most accredited expert for all things spooky, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark —ahem, sorry—Dr. Elvira, to guide us through another horror-filled Halloween season with Netflix Chills. We wonder where she received her board certification.

The streamer has unveiled its slate of ghoulish films and series to keep viewers on the edge of their seats up until All Hallows’ Eve. As Dr. Elvira so eloquently explains in her opening session , frightening features are good for relieving anxiety as they induce all those happy hormones such as serotonin and mood boosters like adrenaline. For those struggling with “anxiety, stress, and jitters,” Dr. Elvira recommends sitting down on the couch for a good scare.

Dr. Elvira’s weekly sessions in the month will commence every Sunday in October, as she takes over Netflix’s social channels to prescribe new series and films to check out to lower feelings of restlessness, from the classics to new originals.
