Hulu: Horror is on the menu for November (horror movies added)


After checking out the disappointingly thin offerings on Amazon Prime for November, I am thinking I may be able to gorge myself on Hulu’s menu instead! Let’s see what Hulu’s got cooking this month.


28 Days Later – Set in the UK, this very strong addition to the zombie movie genre follows Jim (Cilian Murphy) as he a few other survivors try to survive a viral outbreak that induces rage.

2001 Maniacs – A remake of the 1964 Herschell Gordon Lewis flick, 2001 Maniacs was released in 2005. More comedy / horror than straight-up horror, it was produced by Eli Roth, and stars horror icons Robert Englund and Lin Shaye.

Candyman 3: Day of the Dead – This sequel was the third and final chapter of the Candyman movies, and was released straight to DVD. On the Day of The Dead, Candyman returns from the dead to harass an art gallery owner, who is related to him. Tony Todd returns as Candyman, joined by Donna D’Errico and Ernie Hudson, Jr.

Carnage Park – Set in 1973, this crime / horror hybrid tells the story of two crooks fleeing a botched bank robbery. During their escape, they come upon Carnage Park, a desolate stretch of desert guarded by an ex-military psycho.

The Faculty – This underappreciated 1998 film starred Jordana Brewster, Clea DuVall, Josh Hartnett, Salma Hayek, and a host of other well-known actors. A group of high school students come to believe their teachers have been taken over by aliens when they start to act in unexpected, often violent ways.

Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth – Demon Pinhead, trapped in a statue, sucks up the life force of humans to bring himself back, opposed by an investigative reporter.

More from Horror on TV

Hellraiser IV: Bloodline – A toymaker in the 18th century unknowingly creates the iconic puzzle box, which summons the Cenobites. Hundreds of years later, one of the toymaker’s descendants tries to right that wrong.

Hostel – Perhaps Eli Roth’s best-known horror flick, Hostel was a strong entry in the “torture porn” sub genre. It was a huge box office success, bringing in $19 million in its opening weekend. After its release, Slovakia and the Czech Republic pronounced themselves disgusted by Hostel’s portrayal of their countries, fearing it would affect tourism. Eli’s response was that people still travel to Texas, even after seeing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Hostel Part II – The sequel to Roth’s Hostel is basically a very similar story, except the main characters are female. A copy of the sequel was leaked on the internet, which Roth believes played a part in the weak box office returns.

Mulholland Falls – Set in 1950’s LA, Mulholland Falls stars Nick Nolte as Max Hoover, a Detective asked to investigate the murder of a young woman. Also appearing are Melanie Griffith, Jennifer Connelly, Michael Madsen and John Malkovich (among others – it really is an impressive cast).

Phantoms – An adaptation of a Dean R. Koontz novel, Phantoms takes us to the town of Snowfield, Colorado, where everyone seems to be missing (other than some corpses). Phantoms has a great cast, including Peter O’Toole, Liev Schreiber, Ben Affleck and Rose McGowan.

Species: The Awakening – The fourth installment of the sci-fi thriller franchise is not a sequel, but rather a stand-alone offering. It’s the only Species movie to not star Natasha Henstridge.


Into the Dark: Flesh & BloodInto the Dark is a Hulu original series, with one new episode per month. Each episode’s storyline involves a holiday (October’s was a Halloween themed story, December’s will revolve around Christmas, etc.). November’s episode tells the story of a teenage girl suffering from trauma-induced agoraphobia. On Thanksgiving eve, she starts to suspect that her father may be a currently active serial killer.

The Remains – John, a recent widower, buys a home for himself and his three children. Several antique items left in the house are inhabited by evil spirits, which begin to possess the family members.

A drifter named Rourke rescues a young woman from a group of men, and returns her to a compound. The leader of the compound (played by Lance Henrickson) clashes with Rourke on the best strategies to keep from becoming vampire/zombie food.
