Everything That’s Coming To Netflix In October

October is the season for slow Saturday mornings, warm blankets, and hot coffee–and Netflix is the perfect partner for all three.

News of Netflix’s October offerings are overshadowed by the company’s announcement that Netflix will no longer offer Epix movies such as “The Hunger Games,” “Wolf of Wall Street,” and “Robocop.” Instead, these and other Epix titles will be available for streaming on Hulu. As Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime battle each other in what is essentially Game of Thrones, Streaming Edition, Netflix seems poised to double down on its investment in producing and releasing original content.

Although we will be saying goodbye to some gems (“Romeo + Juliet,” “A Nightmare On Elm Street,” and “Annie Hall” among them) and the list is oddly lacking horror flicks considering that Halloween is upon us, Netflix is being good to us this fall, and we thank them for it. Among the titles that will be available for streaming, LD is particularly excited to watch:

“Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics Collection”


There’s something undeniably soothing about vicariously enjoying Ina Garten’s easy living in the Hamptons. Settle in with a “good” cocktail and drink every time she mentions Jeffrey!


“August: Osage County”

Both Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts were nominated for Oscars for their performances in this dark family dramedy.


“The Vampire Diaries:” Season 6


Vampires, just in time for Halloween!


“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”


It’s unclear at this point which version will be coming to Netflix, but either way, there will be ridiculously elaborate sets made of candy and Willy Wonka romping around.


“Boogie Nights”


If you remember eyeing this movie’s suggestive cover from the Blockbuster jaunts of your ’90s youth, you’re not alone. And now you’re finally old enough to watch Mark Wahlberg’s fictional journey through the 1970s porn scene!
