October 2015 Netflix Release Schedule

With so many things coming and going, it can be difficult to determine when a favorite movie or a movie you've been dying to see will hit Netflix. A rule of thumb is thirty days after the DVD comes out, but some don't come to Netflix for years. October 2015 is no exception to this rule.

A lot of titles hit the streaming service on October 1st. With this being the start of the major holiday season, it's no surprise to see that there is a 1938 version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol available starting Oct. 1st. Also available October 1st is the 2005 version of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp (Willy Wonka), Freddie Highmore (Charlie) and Helena Bonham Carter (Charlie's mother).

For those looking for a more exotic movie to watch, or want to brush up on their Spanish skills, El Tiempo Entre Costuras (2013) and La Leyenda de la Nahuala (2007) are coming to Netflix October 1st and 2nd, respectively. These two movies are in Spanish, with English subtitles most likely available - depending upon how you watch.
