Horror movies ruled the week of Halloween as six current and classic genre titles dominated the top 10 movies streamed through Oct. 30, according to new data from JustWatch, which tracks the SVOD streaming habits of 20 million users across 59 markets, including the United States.
Netflix’s new original thriller, Barbarian, topped the list, edging out A24’s Pearl and X, both films directed by Ti West and starring Mia Goth. Also on the podium was the original Terrifier movie, which spawned the current theatrical sleeper hit, Terrifier 2.
Among episodic programming, HBO Max’s “House of the Dragon” beat Netflix’s previous chart topper, “The Watcher,” and new Max series “The White Lotus.”
