The Monster Squad + 11 more genre movies and shows hitting Netflix in September

Every month, Netflix makes changes to its ever-popular Watch Instantly streaming service, and that means that every month some films and shows come, and some films and shows go. So, to help you plan your binge-watching, we give you a heads-up each month about the new sci-fi, fantasy and horror movies and shows hitting the service.

This month, just in time for you to catch up for the new fall premieres, we've got full seasons of Person of InterestGotham and The Walking Dead, along with films like The Monster Squad and Zathura.

Check out September's new Netflix arrivals below. What will you be watching?

Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher (2014)

If you just can't get enough of Marvel Comics, check out this anime release chronicling Black Widow and Punisher's efforts to take down a terrorist group.

Person of Interest (2011-Present) Seasons 1-3 Available September 1, Season 4 Available September 22

This CBS sci-fi drama has evolved from procedural to elaborate plot-driven drama to a kind of mesh of the two. Many genre fans who've seen it can't get enough of it, while others haven't given it a chance yet. If you're in the lattery category, now might be the time.

Masters of the Universe (1987)

The He-Man movie has developed a cult following in the nearly three decades since its release, and if you still haven't seen it, you must, because it's just too bonkers to pass up.

Sleepy Hollow (1999)

Tim Burton's take on the story of Ichabod Crane is still memorable because it marks one of the most fascinating collaborations between Burton and Johnny Depp. It may not hold up as well as you remember (if you remember it that way), but there's still enough weird fun to sustain it.

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl (2005)

Robert Rodriguez's second attempt at a kid hero franchise (after Spy Kids) wasn't exactly a critical smash, but there might someone in your house who'll have fun with it.

The Monster Squad (1987)

Halloween doesn't arrive until October, but it's never too early to find out if the Wolfman's got gnards.

Zathura (2005)

Jon Favreau's first attempt at action-adventure filmmaking never got the audience it deserved in theaters, so maybe it's time for everyone to give it a shot on Netflix.

Space Dandy, Season 2 (2014), Arrives September 7

The second year of this alien-hunting anime lands on Netflix next week.

Gotham, Season 1 (2014-2015), Arrives September 21

If you still haven't checked out FOX's take on a Batman origin story, now's your chance.

The Walking Dead, Season 5 (2014-2015), Arrives September 27

The latest season of The Walking Dead hits Netflix, just in time for you to catch up for Season 6.

Monster High: Boo York (2015), Arrives September 29

The latest installment of the Monster High series.

R.L. Stine's Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls (2015), Arrives September 29

R.L. Stine's finally dropping a Goosebumps movie this year, but if you just can't wait for that, this small-screen effort might do the trick.
