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 this summer. Check out eight of the best horror movies currently streaming on the service.
1. Overlord (2018)
J.J. Abrams produced this underrated action-horror-thriller about a squad of World War II paratroopers who discover that the Nazis have been conducting experiments that have rendered their soldiers nearly invulnerable.
2. The Conjuring (2013)
Inspired by the spooky tales of the real-life paranormal investigator couple Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga), director James Wan takes viewers on a ride through a purportedly haunted Rhode Island home. There's relatively little blood here—just an orchestra of scares.
3. A Quiet Place (2018)
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt star as a couple living in a world terrorized by creatures that hunt by sound. Their largely-silent existence means every stray creak, cry, or noise threatens to expose them to the monsters—a danger that's only compounded when Blunt discovers she’s pregnant.
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. Creepy, atmospheric, and much better than Let Me In, the 2010 American remake.
5. Tragedy Girls (2017)
Best friends Sadie (Brianna Hildebrand) and McKayla (Alexandra Shipp) aren't your typical horror-movie victim tropes. Rather than be stalked by a killer, they are the killers, eager to take social media by storm in this irreverent take on the slasher genre.
6. Oculus (2013)
Movies have relied on everything from haunted houses to haunted dolls, so it might have been inevitable they would one day opt for the haunted mirror. Despite the unusual premise, it's an effective chiller about a woman (Karen Gillan) convinced a mirror is behind the tragedy in her family.
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 film.
8. Baskin (2016)
Police officers in Turkey inadvertently step into a hellscape in this surrealistic horror film that drew raves for its gory, cerebral approach to visceral horror.
