And just like that, summer has officially come to a close. We are now well into the days of pumpkins spice lattes, apple picking, colorful leaves on the trees. Most importantly, we are headed into the month of one of our favorite holidays, Halloween. In an effort to prepare us for the cooler days that are to come, Netflix is deleting a ton of our favs to make room for a wave of new. Here is everything that is leaving Netflix in October 2016. From the Back to the Future trilogy to a Julia Roberts‘ classic, there is a ton to mourn.
Make sure to keep reading for the full list below.
1985's Back to the Future
is fantastic because it's still one of the best time travel film ever made. As teenagers, many of us probably spent a great deal of time annoyed with our parents, but Michael J. Fox'
s character Marty McFly is tasked with returning to the past to make sure his parents end up together. Check out this flick ASAP before it's gone October 1st. Back to the Future II
and Back to the Future III
are also getting the boot, so if you're in need of some '80s nostalgia it's probably best to watch this trilogy right now!
With the horrific atrocity that is currently happening to Flint, Michigan residents and their contaminated drinking water, the story of Erin Brockovich
remains poignant. In the 2000 biopic,Julia Roberts
played Brockovich, a single mother in the early '90s who helped bring Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to their knees for supplying her town's residents with poisonous water. Despite the fact that she had no formal law training, Brockovich was fundamental in forcing the company to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to plaintiffs. For her role, Roberts won an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors’ Guild Award and BAFTA for Best Actress. Check out her stunning performance before Netflix removes it on October 1st.
as 11-year old Vada in My Girl
is still one of the best and most memorable summer films around. Set in 1972, the film follows Vada who has a morbid fascination with death and her BFF Thomas (Macaulay Culkin
) during one pivotal summer that shapes her childhood. It's the perfect way to say goodbye to the long days of summer. Check it out before it vanishes on October 1st.

It seems fitting that Netflix is getting rid of The Truman Show
on Halloween. In the film, Jim Carey
stars as Truman Burbank, a naive and unassuming man who doesn't realize his entire life is a television show. (Seriously how terrifying was this idea especially before the age of social media.) When the executive producer of the show starts messing with Truman's mind, he realizes that something isn't quite right with his surroundings. Watch this Jim Carey classic before it's gone on the 31st.
We can't believe Netflix is snatching this classic 1973 horror film before we even get to Halloween! In The Exorcist
, Linda Blair
stars as 12-year old Ragen MacNeil. Not only does Ragen begin to do seriously creepy stuff, the demon eventually turns her body into a rotting corpse! We can't even!Being a preteen is already horrific enough, so having a demon possess your body is just the terrible icing on an already ghastly cake. Watch it if you dare, before it goes ghost, October 1st.
