What’s new on Netflix October 2015

Jeff Pfeiffer

Really, Netflix? You couldn’t keep The Exorcist streaming through Halloween? The 1973 horror classic ends its streaming time on Netflix Oct. 1, so hurry up! Don’t worry, though; there are plenty of new movies and shows newly streaming on the service starting this month. Here is what’s new on Netflix October 2015, both horror- and non-horror-related.

NEW ON NETFLIX OCTOBER 2015

ORIGINALS

Anjelah Johnson: Not Fancy — Available Oct. 2

Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom — Available Oct. 9. This documentary that made its world premiere last month at the Venice Film Festival chronicles the events that unfolded over 93 days in 2013 and 2014, and witnesses the formation of a new civil rights movement in Ukraine.

Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers — Available Oct. 16

Beasts of No Nation — Available Oct. 16. Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) wrote and directed this drama based on the acclaimed novel by Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala. It’s about Agu, a child soldier torn from his family to fight in the civil war of an African country. Newcomer Abraham Attah plays Agu, with Idris Elba costarring as a warlord who takes the boy in and instructs him in the ways of war. The film also debuts in select theaters this month, but it’s likely most people will only be able to see it on Netflix.
