A critically revered horror sequel tops the ranks of Netflix movies

New original movies released by Netflix tend to do well for the streaming service upon release, regardless of critical reception. This Friday, Netflix released a brand new entry into the Chainsaw Massacre franchise, introducing horror icon Leatherface to a younger generation. Since its debut this weekend, the new Chainsaw Massacre received largely negative reviews and reactions from critics, but that didn’t stop the film from landing in Netflix’s Top 10.

Sunday’s edition of Netflix’s Top 10 features Chainsaw Massacre as the third most popular title on the entire streaming service, showing how many subscribers tune in to check it out. While he was third overall, the new TCM is actually the number one movie on all of Netflix.

When you head to the “Movies” section of Netflix and see the Top 10, Chainsaw Massacre appears in very first position, ahead of a few Despicable Me movies, some Netflix documentaries and Michael Mann Black hata thriller starring Chris Hemsworth.
