Streaming Obits: Leaving Netflix and Hulu in October


Anyone else old enough to remember that song about September ending? Here's your wake-up call: Netflix and the merry band of subscription streams often lose a seasonal favorite out of their catalog right before that very season hits. And now that October looms, it might get difficult to procure your favorite horror or Halloween-flavored hits.

Netflix loses the family-friendly Casper and Gremlins on the first of October, while An American Werewolf in London expires from Hulu the same day. Funny enough, there's another Christina Ricci movie that is leaving Hulu, the not-at-all-seasonally-themed Pumpkin (2002). While not horror in any sense, the black comedy at play in this sorority satire has the ability to frighten. The solution is clear here, folks: a Christina Ricci marathon that spans all semblance of genre (and possibly taste), but ends on a high note with the Addams Family and Addams Family Values. You'll have to bust out your standard definition dee-vee-dee for those, however, as they aren't streaming anywhere headed into October. What. A. Crime.

In other corners of your queue, a notable loss on Netflix is the arguably greatest pair of Elizabeth Taylor performances, in film versions of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Taylor was nominated for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, but the movie was ultimately skunked out of all six of its Oscar nominations that year. She did win Best Actress in 1967 for Virginia Woolf.
