Coincidentally, both the great movies on Netflix now trending and the most popular and best TV shows on Netflix have new titles that focus on the subject of carnivorous creatures — one being an update of a classic horror story and the other a nature docuseries. Let’s talk about them and what else has qualified as the most-watched on Netflix (opens in new tab) for Monday, October 17, 2022, in today’s daily breakdown.

The 2014 reboot brought Megamind, Last Seen Alive, and Sing 2 each down a peg, while 17 Again is actually up in popularity from yesterday, but another kid-friendly “horror” flick, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, descended the most, from seventh to the very bottom.
