One peek at the list of what's new on Netflix, and you'll know that spooky season is ramping up — but Netflix is far from focusing on horror. In fact, one of the biggest new movies to watch this week is an adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's anti-war novel All Quiet on the Western Front. And it's getting rave reviews.

The World War I film focuses on German soldier Paul Bäumer (Felix Kammerer) and his friends, who discover that war is not what it's marketed as. While Kammerer is getting applause for his performance (his first on-screen), filmmaker Edward Berger's getting just as much credit as well.

And if you're already done with our list of the new movies and shows from this weekend, Netflix is adding much more as well. Its other biggest releases include the anthology series Guillermo Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities, the Jessica Chastain-led The Good Nurse and Big Mouth season 6. 

Netflix is also adding a new standup special (Fortune Feimster: Good Fortune) and an animated film starring the voices of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

As for what's dominating the Netflix top 10 right now, Ryan Murphy's The Watcher has the top slot in the Shows list — which it's had for 11 days now. From Scratch and Love Is Blind 3 (followed by previous top-slot holder Dahmer) sit behind. Meanwhile in movies, School for Good and Evil is almost at one whole week at the top.

But that's what's already come out, here's what's new on Netflix this week:
