"Scream" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" are both leaving Netflix in September.

Last call for "Nightmare on Elm Street" and more on Netflix in September

Halloween may still be two months away, but you'll want to get your horror movie watching started early this year – at least if you want to catch some classics before they're gone from Netflix in September.

The streaming service made its monthly announcement of departures, and this upcoming slate's most popular victims are almost all horror movies. The classic "The Omen" – not that garbage shot-for-shot remake from 2006 – will no longer be amongst Netflix's scream-worthy spawn. Craving Wes Craven? Well, take a stab at "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Scream" while you can. If you're in the mood for an underrated creepy gem, catch the late great Bill Paxton's unsettling directorial debut "Frailty" before it's killed off on the first of the month, while those who like their slit throats with a side of show tunes should snag Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd" (arguably the director's last good movie) before it's cut from the service.

Boy, that's a pretty grim lineup of movies getting the ax in September. So how about we brighten things up with "Philomena," a recent Oscar-nominated drama about an elderly woman (Judy Dench) searching for the son she was forced to give up her son to adoption half a century ago by a cruel convent.

Huh ... that did not help. Well, how about this?

Thanks "Jackass: The Movie.: That's better – and that's also leaving Netflix in September, so get that before its final horn blows.
