As much as Netflix subscribers love seeing titles arrive, they hate seeing them go; some of the best movies are leaving Netflix in October of 2016. Not too many people will miss Earthquake 10.0, but plenty will be upset they didn’t revisit Insomnia. Whether you’re in the mood for a good laugh or a good scare, Netflix has the movie for you.
Back to the Future Trilogy
Doc Brown and Marty McFly just said hello to Netflix, and they are unfortunately saying goodbye on October 1. The first two installments of Back to the Future were some of the most iconic movies of the ’80s, and the third brought in the ’90s. Time is running out to revisit the Delorean’s flux capacitor, to see what 1989 thought 2015 would look like, and to see how Doc and Marty handle the old west.
Beverly Hills Cop II
Another staple of the ’80s is bidding Netflix adieu. While the predecessor is sticking around for a while, Beverly Hills Cop II leaves on the first of October.
M. Night Shyamalan has given audiences a bunch of bombs among a few gems — Devil is one of those gems. The ending is somewhat predictable, but the journey is highly entertaining. Old Scratch says farewell on October 16.
Though this tearjerker advertised Dan Aykroyd, Macaulay Culkin, and Jamie Lee Curtis as being the stars, Anna Chlumsky stole the show. You can see her all grown up in In the Loop, which is also playing on Netflix. My Girl leaves on October 1, and it is one of the most heartwarming movies on Netflix.
Nick of Time
Though widely panned by critics, it’s never a bad time watching Christopher Walken or Johnny Depp movies. This picture is unique because the 89 minute film takes place in real time. Nick of Time flies away on October 1.
Robin Williams didn’t always play the villain, but when he did, he certainly delivered. Known as one of Al Pacino’s best roles in the 21st century, Insomnia provides as much drama as it does suspense. The film scored a stunning 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and the site provides the premise for one of the best movies on Netflix.
“A sleep-deprived detective is sent to a small Alaskan town to investigate the murder of a teenage girl. Forced into a psychological game of cat-and-mouse by the primary suspect, events escalate and the detective finds his own stability dangerously threatened.”
In 1979, audiences were introduced to some pretty hip gangs: The Gramercy Riffs, The Rogues, The Orphans, The Baseball Furies, The Lizzies, The Boppers, and The Warriors, among many others. Netflix subscribers have until October 1 to see The Warriors “come out to play.”
The Running Man
Why watch the Rob Zombie rip-off 31, when you can see The Running Man. Starring future governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura, The Running Man is one of the best action movies on Netflix, and it runs away on October 1.
The Truman Show
In one of Jim Carey’s greatest movies, The Truman Show tells the story of a man whose whole life, unbeknownst to him, has been a television show. This is one of the most provocative movies on Netflix, and subscribers have until the last day of October to enjoy it.
In the mood to watch a girl’s head spin around and vomit pea soup? Then The Exorcist is for you! This is the movie that started it all for the possessed genre, and no one has done it better since. Matt’s Movie Reviews explains why this is one of the best horror movies on Netflix.
“The Exorcist not only tops the horror genre but transcends it, resulting in a profound experience where moviemaking horror, thrillingly dramatic storytelling and deeply felt spirituality of the Catholic kind make for pivotal viewing.”
The Exorcist gets exorcised on the first of October.
