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.
The Shining (1980)
Run Time: 146 min | IMDb: 8.4/10
This thriller from Stephen King, directed by Stanley Kubrick, sees Jack Nicholson embody an alcoholic father who takes an off-season position as caretaker of a remote hotel in order to jumpstart his writing career. He brings his family along for the ride and soon, supernatural hauntings begin to happen. Twin girls at the end of a hallway, the ghosts of slain Native Americans, Nicholson’s character losing his ever-loving mind, an elevator filled with blood, all the normal elements of a truly terrifying King adaptation can be found in this one.
