Movies and shows leaving Netflix every month is nothing new, but with Halloween just around the corner, we’ve compiled a list of horror films and thrillers that will be on their way out come October 2016. Some films will be gone on the first day of October, but others will stick around for a little longer - just in time for a Halloween movie marathon.
1. “The Exorcist” – Oct. 1
The original “Exorcist” is considered to be one of the best horror movies ever and its scene featuring actress Linda Blair’s head spinning around is one film’s scariest scenes. Unfortunately, come Oct. 1, the 1973 film will be gone from Netflix.
2. “Insomnia” – Oct. 1
Like “The Exorcist,” this 2002 psychological thriller will be leaving the streaming service on the first day of the month. The film tells the story of two homicide detectives investigating a murder in Alaska and stars Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank.
3. “The Warriors” – Oct. 1
While not a horror film, the film’s characters and setting lend itself perfectly to Halloween. The Warriors gang find themselves in Bronx, New York, after being framed for a murder. With a number of costumed gangs hunting them, The Warriors must make their return to Brooklyn.
4. “Devil” – Oct. 16
You’ll have half the month to check out the 2010 supernatural horror-thriller. Directed by John Dowdle and produced by M. Night Shyamalan, “Devil” was praised for its atmosphere and performances.
5. “Estranged” – Oct. 16
After returning home after six years, January is involved in a near-fatal accident that leaves her wheelchair bound. With her long-term memory gone, January begins to discover that her family wasn’t as loving as she thought.
6. “The Taking of Deborah Logan” – Oct. 21
While the found footage genre has seen its share of hit and misses, “The Taking of Deborah Logan” falls into the hit category. The film tells the story of documentary crew who while making a film about Alzheimer’s patients, discover a secret about one woman.
