Here are all the best movies and TV shows leaving Netflix this October, including horrors like The Lost Boys, The Babadook and Donnie Darko.

Netflix Leaving October 2018

October is a time for horror movies, but you may be scared by some of the films and TV shows leaving Netflix this month. Here's the must-watch content that's going to be leaving in the next 31 days.

Yes, it’s time to bid farewell to summertime and welcome the spookiest season of the year. It’s also time for a new crop of Netflix offerings, which this month includes an enviable stack: the streaming service will be debuting Daredevil season 3, The Haunting of Hill HouseThe Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and more.

Of course, that also means saying goodbye to a few classics as well, so fans of these flicks (and series) may want to cosy up with some Halloween candy and watch as many of them as possible before we bid farewell to everything from classics like Boogie Nights to newer offerings like Bridget Jones’ Baby.

15. Adventureland

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in Adventureland

This quirky comedy is the definition of a summer movie, so it seems fitting that Adventureland will be leaving Netflix this month - and it’s the perfect way to end the season and start looking forward to Fall. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Ryan Reynolds and Kristen Stewart, it centers on the employees of an amusement park and their adventures on and off the clock.

Leaving: October 1

14. Boogie Nights

Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights - Actors Who Bared it All

This ‘90s classic is definitely worth a re-watch, if only for Mark Wahlberg’s performance as Dirk Diggler. Boogie Nights is a dive into the golden age of porn in the '70s, exploring the kind of parties, excesses, and lifestyles of the people in the industry. Definitely not one for the easily offended, but for lovers of subtle storytelling and brilliant performances this is totally worth a watch.

Leaving: October 1

13. Bad Boys

Bad Boys 3 script and release date update

Soak up some more classic 90s goodness with Bad Boys, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Bad Boys is the perfect action cop comedy, as the coolest narcotics cops in Miami investigate some stolen heroin and try to protect a murder witness. The sequel, Bad Boys II, is not available to stream at all, so while there are no marathon options, you can still enjoy the original for a few days.

Leaving: October 1

12. Cinderella Man

Paul Giamatti as Joe Gould in Cinderella Man

Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger star in this sports biography drama about James Braddock, a boxer who made an incredible comeback in the 1930s. Cinderella Man was nominated for no less than three Oscars and won a host of other awards - and it’s easy to see why this gritty period piece did so well - it’s a fantastic inspirational watch for a fall day.

Leaving: October 1

11. Freaks and Geeks (Season 1)

Fans of this unique ‘90s high school series will be sad to bid farewell to their favorite Freaks and Geeks - although with only one season available, there’s still time to give it a final binge-watch before we say goodbye! And if you are missing the misadventures of these high school outcasts from decades past, check out Netflix’s own Everything Sucks for a similar vibe.

Leaving: October 1

10. Sin City

Mickey Rourke As Marv Sin City

Comic book fans who aren’t into the light, bright, and colorful offerings on the big screen will have to say goodbye to one of the ultimate dark and gritty adaptations this month, as Sin City leaves the streaming service - following the departure of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which left over the summer. Enjoy a last look at the black and white gore of Frank Miller’s world and get into the horror spirit with some impressively gory moments that never fail to turn the stomach.

Leaving: October 1

9. The Lost Boys

‘80s vampire comedy? A young Kiefer Sutherland? It’s a shame that The Lost Boys isn’t going to be around for the month of October, because it’s a perfect pre-Halloween watch about comic book nerds who end up fighting a gang of local vampires in California. This eminently quotable cult classic deserves at least one more watch before it leaves the streaming service - even if there are plenty of other vampire offerings still available to stream.

Leaving: October 1

8. The BFG

The BFG (2016) movie reviews

Last chance to take in this Roald Dahl adaptation of The BFG on family movie night, as this sweet story leaves Netflix at the start of the month. Although the 2016 fantasy adventure definitely sanitizes the original book a little bit, it features some beautiful scenes and incredible effects that make it a beautiful fantasy film for everyone to enjoy.

Leaving: October 6
