The universe gives, and the universe takes away. Earlier today, we told you about all the new movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in April, but now it’s time for the sad flip side to that coin: The ones that must go. If you’re a horror buff, you’ll want to catch all the Friday the 13th movies, because they’re on the way out, but fans of all genres—old movies, ‘80s classics (KARATE KID?! Say it ain’t so, Netflix!), westerns, sports movies, and more.

Here are our picks for the titles that will be leaving in April, and read on to see the full list below.

1. Friday the 13th: Part 6: Jason Lives

Year: 1986
Director: Tom McLoughlin
Leaving: April 1
After he accidentally reanimates Jason, Tommy (from parts four and five) struggles to warn a nearby summer camp—this time with actual kids. Within his first two minutes back alive, Jason punches a dude’s heart out. Awesome. (An honorable mention has to go to the final moments of the poor town sheriff, who Jason literally folds in half.) Admittedly, this one isn’t particularly scary, but Jason Lives is in clear, reverent conversation with the entire franchise, a self-reflexive edge that predates Scream by a decade (“Some folks have a strange idea of entertainment,” one character laments). In a way, this movie feels more essentially Friday the 13th than the original ever did. —Jeffrey Bloomer

2. Good Morning, Vietnam!

Year: 1987
Director: Barry Levinson
Leaving: April 1
Inspired by real-life namesake, Saigon-based disc jockey Adrian Cronauer, this is where Robin Willians came into his own as a marquee draw and Oscar-nominated actor. (He eventually won for 1997’s Good Will Hunting.) Director Barry Levinson wisely let his leading man ad lib the Armed Forces Radio programs, a rapid-fire melange of one-liners, impressions, pop culture references, sound effects and off-the-cuff characters that made “the airways a demilitarized zone.” There’s nothing much for the outstanding supporting cast (Forest Whitaker, Robert Wuhl, Bruno Kirby) to do but take a backseat to Williams’ singular brand of comic anarchy. —Amanda Schurr

3. Mystic River

Year: 2003
Director: clint Eastwood
Leaving: April 1
Evildoers get away with murder, innocents get whacked, and so on — hardly a new theme. Clint Eastwood’s 24th directorial endeavor Mystic River dares to be bleaker. It suggests that between crime and misdirected punishment, men mope around miserably, women are whiny and worse, the past controls our fate, and hope is as empty and fleeting as a marching band on Main Street.
—Jeffrey Overstreet
