Just like trees shed their leaves in the autumn to make way for new growth come springtime, Netflix also removes a bunch of movies and TV shows to make room for fresh content – and this October has some real gems leaving.  

Despite spooky season being in full swing, there are not many new horror shows being added to the best streaming service this month, aside from series like the The Devil on Trial and Ghost Hunters  – check out our guide to new Netflix movies for more. There are also some horror shows leaving Netflix, such as the psychological thriller series T@gged.

But if you need a break from all the gore and jump scares, then you won't want to miss some of these. Out of all the movies and series set to be removed this month, we'd highlight classics like the '90s mountain rescue thriller Cliffhanger, psychiatric drama Girl, Interrupted, neo-noir crime film Reservoir Dogs, and '80s teen comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off as ones to watch.
