Not so lucky now, are you, Mila Kunis? Her film Luckiest Girl Alive has dropped to No. 3 on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies list, edged out by the Josh Duhamel action thriller Blackout, which moved back in to the No. 2 spot. Halloween comedy The Curse of Bridge Hollow is No. 1. Today might also be the last day we see Last Seen Alive alive, as it’s right on the cusp of falling out of the top 10. The Ryan Murphy double feature of The Watcher and Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story sit on top of the TV list for the fifth day in a row. With the latest season of American Horror Story about to premiere on FX this week, we’re all living in Ryan Murphy’s world now. It’s very excessive in here! 

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.
