Every Movie and TV Show New on Netflix for October, 2015


Here's your complete Netflix lineup for October, 2015. Most of the goodies (as usual) come in on October first of the month, including Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights, Batman Begins, Million Dollar Baby, the 1938 version of A Christmas Carol (should be a fun way to spend this Halloween month — wtf?) and an unusually large collection of forgotten Frank Sinatra movies. For the remainder of the month, we can look forward to the first season of The Flash, American Horror Story: Freakshow, season 3 of Arrow (lotta superhero stuff coming, huh?), and if you're into overrated movies from 2013, we're also getting August: Osage County for you to drool over.

And that's it. The rest is mostly compromised of shitty reality shows, sub-par Netflix originals, and a ton of kiddy shows.
