Since the Netflix top 10 shows and movies lists reflects what people watched yesterday, today’s lists give us an idea of what everyone watched on Netflix Halloween night while they were hiding from trick-or-treaters. That would explain the triumphant return of Adam Sandler’s Hubie Halloween and the rise of Adam Sandler’s Hotel Transylvania 2 to No. 3. Adam Sandler is not in the No. 1 movie, The Good Nurse, which stays on top for the sixth day in a row. It’s a mix of love and gore on the TV list, with Zoe Saldaña’s From Scratch and Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities at Nos. 1 and 2 for the second day in a row. The new British thriller Inside Man debuts at No. 8. Adam Sandler is not in any of these, either. Get to work, Sandman!

But as we all know, popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they’re actually worth watching or not. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.
