We have reached the final weekend of October before Halloween, which is why it is especially enchanting to see a new horror movie appear on the Netflix Top 10 today — specifically among the best movies on Netflix’s trending page. There is also a (more realistically) scary new title appearing alongside the most popular and great TV shows on Netflix as well as another addition that offers some light to break through the darkness that has been dominating most of the list for a while now. Let’s go deeper into what is trending on Netflix for Friday, October 28, 2022 in today’s daily breakdown.

Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - October 28, 2022

Still in the lead of Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. are The Good Nurse, The School for Good and Evil, and Blade of the 47 Ronin, but they are now directly followed by The Chalk Line, which switched place places with Sing 2 and allowed it to be seated next to another Illumination Entertainment sequel. However, keeping the first two Despicable Me movies apart for now is Hellhole — a new horror movie about mysterious disappearances at a monastery in 1980s Poland. Currently rounding out the bottom are the more family-friendly spooky movie, The Curse of Bridge Hollow, and star Mila Kunis’ bleak drama, Luckiest Girl Alive.
