Netflix dropping nearly 40 titles for August

It’s the end of July and that means Netflix is about to kill a number of movies and TV shows from its streaming service.

As of Aug. 1, Netflix will drop nearly 40 titles from its service.

Some aren’t really that big of a deal like, “The Haunting of Julia” or “Attack of the Crab Monsters,” which I doubt were streamed that often. There are, however, some great titles that will be expiring.

Some of the more popular titles that we’ll be losing include “Braveheart,” “The Rainmaker,” “The Addams Family,” and “The Ghost and the Darkness.”

Here is a full list of the titles that will be dropped from Netflix streaming:
