MORBIUS Is Currently The Second Most Popular Movie On Netflix

It's Morbin' time, indeed. Despite a critical lambasting, Sony Pictures' Morbius has clearly developed a cult following, which is evident from the movie's placing on Netflix's most-watched list...

Morbius did not receive a warm welcome (Baltic would be more accurate) from critics when it hit theaters earlier this year, but the Sony Pictures Spider-Man spinoff did fare slightly better with audiences, and has since gone on to find a loyal cult following.

Whether the majority of fans actually believe the movie is better than its reputation suggests or are simply having a bit of fun is obviously up for debate, but either way, Morbius' measly 15% Rotten Tomatoes critics score stands in stark contrast to the audience's 71%.

The studio attempted to capitalize by re-releasing Morbius in theaters, and while that turned out to be a huge misstep, the movie has proved to be very popular on Netflix.

The Jared Leto-starrer has been climbing up the streaming charts since debuting on the platform on September 9, and now sits at second place in its Top 10 film list behind the Netflix Original film, End of the Road.

There's a decent chance a lot of people who skipped Morbius in theaters are simply tuning in to see just how bad it actually is, but we'll see if it manages to hold on to this position over the next few weeks.

A direct sequel is still highly unlikely after its dismal box office performance, but that doesn't mean we won't see Leto return as The Living Vampire in whatever unholy team-up movie the studio seemed to be threatening in that post-credits scene.

Did you guys give Morbius another watch on Netflix?
