Other Netflix originals include the thriller “1922,” based on a story by Stephen King; horror film “Babysitter”; documentary “Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold”; the TV dramas “Bonus Family” from Sweden and “Suburra” from Italy; and stand-up comedy specials from Patton Oswalt and Judah Friedlander.

Films arriving in October include Richard Linklater’s “Before Midnight” with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, the cult movie “Donnie Darko,” Tim Burton’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” with Johnny Depp, Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut,” “The Final Master” from China, and comedies “I Love You, Man” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.”

Streaming TV includes the Stephen King adaptation “The Mist: Season 1” from Spike, “Slenderman: Season 2” from Sundance and the horror series “Slasher: Season 1” from Chiller.

Among the programs leaving Netflix in October are Hollywood classics “Carousel” and “Laura”; Oscar winners “Million Dollar Baby” and “Patton”; David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.”; Akira Kurosawa’s “Kagemusha”; and more Fox and FX TV programs, including “30 Rock,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” “The Cleveland Show,” “My Name is Earl,” “Louis,” “Prison Break” and seven seasons of “Family Guy.”
