Although Netflix definitely has the superior selection of Horror choices, Hulu has got you covered on some unique titles too. The streaming service built its reputation with its TV offerings, but it’s quietly turned into a fine place to watch movies. We didn’t have to look too hard to find some scary must-sees, from bona fide classics to cult favorites. So here are the 10 best horror movies on Hulu right now.
Children Of The Corn (1984)
Run Time: 92 min | IMDb: 5.6/10
Based on the short story by Stephen King, Children Of The Corn is set in the fictitious town of Gatlin, Nebraska, where children are drawn to ritualistically murder both the local adults and hapless passers-by to ensure a plentiful corn harvest. They act on the whims of “He who walks behind the rows,” a mysterious, bloodthirsty deity. The film’s become something of a cult classic, spawning eight sequels, as well as a TV remake in 2009 that more closely followed King’s original story.
Run Time: 122 min | IMDb: 8/10
You can’t talk about horror without mentioning this film, one that helped kickstart the popularity of the genre. Starring Ellen Burstyn, Linda Blair, and Max von Sydow, The Exorcist recounts the story of a young girl named Regan who becomes possessed by a demonic spirit that begins attacking those around her. Her mother, an actress named Chris (Burstyn) sends for help in the form of two priests who attempt to perform an exorcism, but personal conflict and tragedy soon complicate matters further. The movie is an exercise in faith and maternal boundaries as Chris tries desperately to save her daughter without understanding the cause of her illness. But don’t get us wrong, this thing will give you nightmares. So many nightmares.
