What’s Expiring on Netflix Instant: October 2015

Universal Pictures

Normally the lists of what is disappearing from Netflix in any given month isn’t that long. Last month it was 15 total titles. But, October is the Great Netflix Cleansing as a whopping 45 movies are expiring. And these aren’t just generic B-movies, these are legit classics like Annie Hall, This is Spinal Tap, The Big Lebowski, The Exorcist and Kangaroo Jack. Not you too, Kangaroo Jack!

The purge comes at Netflix’s deal with Epix ends at the beginning of the month, wiping out many of the Hollywood films that were part of that deal. (Epix, who license Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM films instead signed an exclusive contract with Hulu.) This means a lean couple of months for Netflix until their new deal with Disney, and all the assorted Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm titles that come with it, goes into effect in January.

So if you’ve seen these movies on Netflix and put off watching them, you might want to get on that: the clock is ticking.
