Hulu made its reputation with its TV offerings, but it’s quietly turned into a fine place to watch movies, horror movies included. We didn’t have to look too hard to find some scary must-sees, from bona fide classics to a so-bad-it’s-amazing cult favorite. So here are the 10 best horror movies on Hulu right now.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
The 1970s saw the introduction of previously unseen amounts of gore. But despite its reputation, Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic mostly holds back on the bloodletting, letting its unsettling setting and disturbed characters — and Hooper’s right direction — do a lot of the work. Which isn’t to the horror doesn’t turn visceral, at times literally, over the course of the movie. But it’s a more subtle and better-crafted film than its title suggests, and one very much aware of what it means to pit a bunch of drifting, hippie kids against redneck cannibals in the heart of a country still very much divided by the cultural divisions of the 1960s.
