10 movies and shows you need to watch before they’re pulled from Netflix in April

Netflix Movies List

It’s rare that Netflix is in the news for the wrong reasons, but the company caught some bad press on Thursday night when it was revealed that it has been quietly and intentionally reducing the quality of videos it streams to AT&T and Verizon customers for the last five years. Why? Netflix says it was to help them avoid bursting through their data caps, but most people would apparently rather have a choice than be throttled. We know we would.

Of course, the news likely isn’t going to stop anyone from using Netflix’s service, though it’ll hopefully inspire the company to correct its mistake. In the meantime, time marches on and content within Netflix’s catalog comes and goes. The streaming giant is adding plenty of new titles next month but at the same time, it’s losing a bunch of movies and TV shows as licensing expires.

In this post, we’ll show you 10 titles that you absolutely need to watch — or re-watch — before they’re pulled next month.

We’ll start with content that’s expiring on April 1st, including several solid films, a beloved TV series and a horror movie starring none other than Paris Hilton:

Then on April 10th, we lose the Swedish film on which Let Me In was based:
