The 10 Most Popular Shows And Movies On Netflix

October 21, 2019
Categories: 

I’m a huge scary movie fan so I love firing up spooky films and shows in October.  Tis the season, after all.  Netflix does a pretty good job stocking up on seasonal fair.  Their Halloween “Netflix and Chills” content is better than decent.  I would highly recommend season 2 of their true story paranormal show, “Haunted,” which is available now and a Netflix original film called “Eli.”  I’m not sure how popular the latter is – I haven’t seen much buzz online but maybe it’s too early.  It just dropped last Friday but, trust me, it’s excellent.

Whether “Eli” becomes as popular as it deserves remains to be seen but we do know what shows and movies ARE very popular.  These are the 10 most popular Netflix Originals in the tv and movie categories and I have to say, there are definitely some surprises (and surprise omissions).  Check it out…
