It’s that time of the year where new Halloween movies are coming out! The latest hit movie that has been released is Hubie Halloween, which became available on Netflix on October 7.

The movie is based on a character named Hubie Dubois, played by Adam Sandler, who has always been an outsider in his hometown. As an adult, much to his dismay, he is still unwelcome in the community. He has always done his best to ensure safety in the town, and he ends up doing so by solving the spooky mystery of why people are disappearing on Halloween.

Hubie Halloween has many talented actors and actresses that we all know and love including: Kevin James, Noah Schnapp, Ben Stiller and Paris Berelc. They all did amazing jobs with each of their roles, and truly gave us interesting, family friendly content that’s perfect to watch with anyone!

This wholesome film had a splash of everything you need for a great movie. Hubie Halloween had a lot of important life lessons within it, and of course, included the perfect amount of spookiness and goofiness that always comes with Adam Sandler.

There was even a tribute to Cameron Boyce at the end of the film, a young actor who passed away in July of 2019. Boyce was in the Grown Ups movie franchise with Sandler when he was younger, and was intended to play the role of one of the bullies in this new film.

“In loving memory of CAMERON BOYCE. Gone way too soon and one of the kindest, coolest, funniest and most talented kids we knew. You live on forever in our hearts and are truly missed every day,” the tribute said.

Having the tribute to Boyce at the end of the movie demonstrates the humanity and love people share when acting together. Movies do more than just entertain an audience, they can bring whole communities together.

This film is a great addition to the Halloween classics. So, go get some popcorn and candy, and stream Hubie Halloween on Netflix only!
