Netflix: 15 Best Movies And TV Shows Leaving In December

Netflix Movies Leaving December 2018

Time to have a look at the final crop of films and TV shows leaving Netflix this year, as the streaming service prepares to ditch a few last films and series before 2019 arrives.

This month, we're saying goodbye to some horror films (including Hellraiser and Children of the Corn), superheroes (Spider-Man 3) and Disney family films (Moana and Pirates of the Caribbean)… so don’t plan on those particular titles to keep the kids occupied during the holiday festivities!

Read on for some of the other best streamables to watch before they leave Netflix this month!

15. The Game

Michael Douglas in The Game

Michael Douglas stars in this ‘90s thriller about a closed off investment banker who decides to take part in a mysterious ‘Game’… but one that rejects his application. Slowly, he begins to fear that the company who created the Game is now after him, and he is dragged into a terrifying world where he has to try and escape this shadowy organization.

Leaving: Dec 1

14. Groundhog Day

Bid farewell to this classic comedy, starring Bill Murray and Andie McDowell. Murray plays a jaded weatherman who ends up stuck in a time loop, reliving one day over and over, and learning how to become a better man along the way (and one worthy of the woman that he wants to be with). It may be a fairly simple premise, but Groundhog Day is accepted as one of the greatest rom coms ever.

Leaving: Dec 1

13. Hellraiser

Halloween is long gone, so it’s time to say goodbye to this classic horror. Hellraiser (and the sequel, Hellbound: Hellraiser II) are both leaving the streaming service on December 1st. While there are eight other films in the franchise, none of them are available to stream either. So get your fill of PinHead and the portal to hell while you still can.

Leaving: Dec 1

12. Sons of Anarchy (Season 1-7)

All seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy are departing Netflix this month, so if you aren’t quite finished with the adventures of this motorcycle club, you may be out of luck (or out of sleep, desperately binging). Spin-off series Mayans MC is also not on Netflix, although with the first season only just finished (the finale aired on Nov 6th), there’s still a possibility that this one will be available to stream in the future.

Leaving: Dec 1

11. Spider-Man 3

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is going to hit the big screen in December, but on the small screen, the only Spider-Man movie currently on Netflix is going to be leaving at the start of the month. Spider-Man 3, the last of Tobey Maguire’s run as the web-slinger with Topher Grace as Venom, leaves the streaming service on Dec 1st. However, with so many better spider-movies in theaters these days, we should be able to handle the loss.

Leaving: Dec 1

10. Children of the Corn

Hellraiser isn’t the only classic horror to bid farewell to this month. Children of the Corn is also heading off Netflix at the start of the month. Based on a Stephen King story, Children of the Corn plays into the natural creepiness of children, as the inhabitants of a small rural town slaughter anyone who is over the age of 18. Of course, there are still plenty of Stephen King offerings available for any who want to get their end of the year horror fix.

Leaving: Dec 1

9. Air Bud

Air Bud

There are no fewer than fourteen Air Bud films in this franchise about an adorable dog who can play sports… and several of them are leaving Netflix this month. Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, Air Bud: Spikes Back, Air Bud: World Pup, Air Buddies, Spooky Buddies, and The Search For Santa Paws are all being removed on December 4th (so good luck entertaining the kids with this franchise over Christmas!).

Leaving: Dec 4

8. Battle Royale

Battle Royale

Before there was The Hunger Games, there was Battle Royale. This Japanese film (also based on a novel), takes place in a future where the BR Act has been passed to control the youth of Japan - and a ninth-grade class are given three days to fight to the death, with a single victor expected. Battle Royale may not have the districts or love triangle of The Hunger Games, but it has the same kind of phenomenal character development and plot twists and is sure to please fans.

Leaving: Dec 10
