Are you just about ready to keel over waiting for Halloween? Good, because Hulu and Netflix are serving up Season 7 of American Horror Story for your viewing pleasure this week, and they’re both adding a couple of supremely spooky movies (time to stop being a chicken and watch The VVitch).

But if scares aren’t your thing, don’t worry! Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and HBO have plenty of other premieres to keep you occupied this week, including the streaming debut of The Shape of Water, a miniseries starring Emma Stone, and Tony Danza’s return to TV.

Our Picks:

Maniac

Stone and Jonah Hill star in this limited series about two patients who sign up for a medical trial. Only this medical trial involves the duo venturing into each other’s minds to partake in Lord of the Rings‘ style fantasy sequences and ’80s family life daydreams.

Hilda

Hilda is a cartoon you’ll actually want to watch with your kids. Or entirely on your own. The story of an adventurous little girl who’s reluctant to leave her life in the country behind looks absolutely adorable, and it’s based on a critically-acclaimed graphic novel.

The Good Cop

Danza is back in what appears to be light procedural perfect for rainy afternoon marathons. The Who’s the Boss star plays a bad cop who helps his good cop son solve crimes.

Nappily Ever After

Netflix continues to up their original movie game with Nappily Ever After, a film about an African American woman who goes on a journey to discover who she really is after an incident at the salon.

The Shape of Water (2017)

Our Pick:

The Shape of Water

The 2017 Best Picture winner is a beautiful and hypnotic love story that everyone should see at least once. If you missed it in theaters, now’s the perfect time to see what all the hype was about.
