Adam Sandler has a new Halloween movie coming to Netflix and it’s basically ‘Paul Blart’ meets ‘Scream’

Adam Sandler’s new film — ‘Hubie Halloween’ — arrives on Netflix next month.

Adam Sandler is back for Halloween with a new film that could either be a trick or a treat, and we’re not really sure what to believe.

  • The new film — called “Hubie Halloween” — tells the story of Hubie Dubois (Sandler) who spends every Halloween making sure Salem, Massachusetts, residents celebrate Halloween safely.
  • But this year, someone new moves into town and people start disappearing. So Hubie must convince the police (which includes Kevin James and Kenan Thompson) that monsters are real.
  • This sounds a lot like the “Paul Blart” movies — but on Halloween.
  • Watch the trailer below.

The film stars Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, June Squibb, Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Chiklis, Tim Meadows, Karan Brar, George Wallace, Noah Schnapp, Paris Berelc, China Anne McClain, with Steve Buscemi and Maya Rudolph.

The film debuts on Oct. 7.

Sandler told Howard Stern in December that he would make a really bad movie if he didn’t win an Oscar for her performance in “Uncut Gems,” according to the New York Post.

  • “If I don’t get it, I’m going to ... come back and do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay. That’s how I get them,” he said.
