The Process

1. Beware and enter only if you dare!

2. Download the free Netflix Party Google Chrome Extension. Please note, you will not be able to participate without Google Chrome, a Netflix Account, or this extension as it connects you to our group chat. Once the Netflix Party Google Chrome Extension has been downloaded, practice your ghoulish laughter with glee.

3. Don’t get tangled in a web: make sure to RSVP to the movie you would like to attend.

4. (Optional but encouraged): Prepare your eerie-sistible snacks, do the monster mash, and howl at the moon.

5. The Netflix Party Movie Link will be available only on the day. Scour your reminder email (which you will receive 30 minutes before the event) for the link and select it. Then click on the (already downloaded) Netflix Party Icon (it should be in the top right corner of your Google Chrome screen), and you will be redirected to the movie and our group chat!

6. The movie will begin when the clock strikes 7:00 PM EDT.
