Most popular movies on Netflix last week

Whether it's tornadoes or aliens threatening the planet's future, disaster movies keep audiences glued to the edge of their seats. Even as parts of the southeastern U.S. stare down Hurricane Ian—after Hurricane Fiona devastated Puerto Rico last week—disturbingly, it's a storm-centric movie gripping audiences. "Lou," a Netflix original film about a kidnapping amid a terrible storm, debuted on the streaming platform last week and immediately made its way to this week's top 10 films list, across 93 countries no less. Some folks, however, seem to like their disaster movies a little more meta. "This Is the End," Seth Rogen's 2013 apocalyptic comedy, is finally on Netflix and joins "Lou" on the chart.

As we head deeper into the spooky season, Netflix's Top 10 movie list is mostly limited to thrillers or children's cult favorites. On the first end of that spectrum, there's "A Jazzman's Blues," a period film 27 years in the making about an unsolved murder investigation; on the second is "Minions & More Volume 1," a collection of shorts to keep the kids entertained while you figure out what subgenre of dark and twisted content suits your needs. Check out the list Stacker compiled of the most popular movies on Netflix from Sept. 19-25, 2022, for some inspiration.
