FoCC Preview: Netflix’s October Faction

By Scott C.

Are you a fan of all things horror and monsters? If so, Netflix and IDW Entertainment have a treat for you. 

Debuting on January 23, Netflix’s October Faction, which is based on IDW Publishing’s comic book series by Steve Niles, is all about monsters and a family’s dark secret. Fred (J.C. MacKenzie) and Deloris Allen (Tamara Taylor) are trained monster hunters who work for a secret organization. Their seventeen-year-old twins Geoff (Gabriel Darku) and Viv (Aurora Burghart) believe that their parents are your typical, ‘boring’ insurance sales rep. Yet the truth will come out, so how will the twins handle that bit of information about their parents? 

If that was not enough for the family, one small-town area in upstate New York they call home has its dark secrets as well. Evil will not stop haunting our heroes. Overall, let the monster hunting, family drama, and teenage antics begin!

October Faction is produced by High Park Entertainment who is partnering with IDW Entertainment, the worldwide distributor for the series, although Canada will be excluded.

The series was created and adapted by Damian Kindler (American Gods, Sleepy HollowKrypton), who is also serving as the series’ showrunner and executive producer. 

With Netflix going all in with the horror and/or monster theme lately, it is time to prepare for what else Netflix has in store for the future of the streaming service. October Faction looks like a fun series, so give it a try.

October Faction premieres on January 23, 2020 on Netflix. Don’t forget to visit the FoCC forum to keep the monster hunting talk going.
