The 8 Best Horror Movies to Stream on Hulu Right Now
Looking for a good scare? If you’re a Hulu subscriber, you’ll be able to get your fill of creepy content. Check out eight of the best horror movies currently streaming on the service.
1. Open Water (2003)
In the shark movie canon, there's Jaws (1975) and then there's everything else. But Open Water doesn't try to best the spectacle of that landmark film. Instead, it focuses on a couple (Blanchard Ryan and Daniel Travis) who go scuba diving, only to find themselves adrift with no boat and a sea full of carnivores closing in.
2. Crawl (2019)
When a hurricane hits Florida, a young woman (Kaya Scodelario) must find the courage to get her injured father (Barry Pepper) out of his crawl space and away from alligators on the attack in this effective thriller.
3. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
The recent found-footage trend was kickstarted by Blair Witch, a modestly-budgeted indie that had viewers wondering if the story of filmmakers lost in the Maryland woods was fact or fiction.
4. Let the right One In (2008)
This Swedish coming-of-age tale marries adolescent angst with the problems of being a bloodsucker. Bullied Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant) befriends Eli (Lina Leandersson), who's reluctant to share the fact she comes from a family of vampires. Let the Right One In is creepy, atmospheric, and much better than Let Me In, the 2010 American remake.
5. Arachnophobia (1990)
Jeff Daniels settles down in a new town just a super-species of spider begins terrorizing residents in this darkly comic chiller from executive producer Steven Spielberg.
6. Hollow Man (2000)
Director Paul Verhoeven (1987's Robocop) offers his lurid take on the invisible man story, with lecherous scientist Kevin Bacon rendered unseen by an experiment. In addition to being invisible, Bacon is also growing increasingly unhinged. Elisabeth Shue and Josh Brolin co-star.
7. The Host (2007)
Before Parasite director Bong Joon-ho picked up the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2020, he directed this parable about a sea monster who rampages through a South Korean town. While there's a clear environmental message—the monster rises from contaminated water—it's still plenty effective as a monster movie.
8. You're Next (2013)
Director Adam Wingard (2014's The Guest) explores the dynamics of a family reunion besieged by a group of homicidal maniacs in this slasher hit.
