“One thing that interested me in watching the movie was its actors and actresses,” said Matas Andrikonis, sophomore. “Adam Sandler and Noah Schnapp are two actors I am very familiar with and I have loved their previous films, so I definitely plan on watching ‘Hubie Halloween’ soon.”

“Hubie Halloween” has a rating of 5.2 stars out of 10 on IMDb and 48% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, but its popularity still seems to be increasing among Netflix users despite these lower ratings. “Hubie Halloween” has officially been placed on Netflix’s top ten list along with other newly esteemed movies.
