Summary:  We characterize the spectrum and essential spectrum of "essentially linear fractional" composition operators acting upon the Hardy space $H^2(\U)$ of the open unit disc $\U$. When the symbols of these composition operators have Denjoy--Wolff point on the unit circle, the spectrum and essential spectrum coincide. Our work permits us to describe the spectrum and essential spectrum of certain associated weighted composition operators on $H^2(\U)$.
