10 Spine Chilling Movies for Halloween on Hulu!
The below list contains some seriously gruesome horror movies that can seriously mess up with your head! So, if you’re one of the faint hearted this list is not for you!
Hounds of Love
The film manages to easily glue you to the screen, directed by the highly talented Ben Young. The movie ticks all the right boxes whether it be the great performance of the actors involved or the gloomy build up and cinematic effects all things align in a manner to make a great horror film.
The story revolves around a lunatic couple that is involved in abducting young girls and performing brutally evil acts involving forced sexual activities. The couple ends up capturing Vicki Maloney, a teen, who sneaks out at night to attend a party. The couple has definitely killed before and there won’t be an exception for Vicki either. Now its upon her to save herself from the crazy couple.
However, there is a catch! I forgot to mention that Hulu is only available in the U.S. This means if you are residing outside USA, you will not be able to watch all these content on Hulu (Oops). But there is a way to access Hulu from anywhere. With the use of Hulu VPN, you can bypass geo-blocking error and binge any title you want no matter where you live.
Evil Dead 2
To be honest, most of the times when a sequel of a film is made it sucks big time, but that’s not the case with Evil Dead 2. The film exceedingly improves upon its first version and in fact is grittier whilst having elements of comedy as well. The film is a feature debut of director Sam Raimi.
In Evil Dead 2, Bruce Campbell is back to fight the Dead entities and it is here where he gets the chance to show signs of the hero he becomes battling evil. Evil Dead 2 is one of the greatest horror trilogy ever made, with the right amount of action, blood and gore. It is one of the best film on Hulu in the Horror genre.
Mom and Dad
The movie wouldn’t have probably been so smoothly digested by the audience if it wasn’t for Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair. Parents are the safest people we know, they put their children before themselves and any parent would give up their life for their child.
But in a strange turn of events, in this film a mysterious evil makes the parents go completely nuts and try to kill their own children. While there have been movies where kids get possessed and try to hurt their parents or family, this one’s a completely different take. The movie successfully maintains the tension till the end.
The Parasite is simply genius work, transitioning from one genre to the other without killing the flow, you may call it a horror movie, or a dark comedy or a devastating take on capitalism. The film is produced by the very well-known Oscar winning Korean director Bong Joon-ho.
Bong’s name attached to a film can tell you how well it is going to be and how much out of the box the viewing journey will be. Bong’s film have that element of keeping you laser focused throughout the film. Like all Bong Joon-ho movies, the film has amazing cinematic experience and life to jump scare you!
Overlord revolves around the era of World War 2 where the American soldiers discover a Nazi radio tower, hidden inside an ancient church. What really is inside the radio tower is soul shaking horror of dark twisted, crazy mad scientist stuff. Human experiments and mutation and bloodthirsty monsters created by the Nazi scientists. What becomes of the soldiers? I won’t destroy that for you, give it a watch on Hulu.
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
There are loads of Christmas horror flicks out there, but Rare Exports is something quite different. It is a Finnish film directed by Jalmari Helander. The movie discloses the truth about Santa Claus and the reality of this gift giving jolly character associated with Christmas. The movie shows that the origins of Santa Claus and they aren’t as sweet as one imagines.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many happy stories involving step mothers. The children are often shown as being in grief and feeling unloved. But the lodge takes it to somewhere even darker. Two kids are forced to reside in a remote lodge far away from population, only to encounter all types of horror and gruesome secrets. The film is shot well, maintaining its creepy feel till the very end and is loaded with unexpected surprises of the worst kind.
A serial killer is on the loose in a small town, while everybody is scared, two high school girls decide to make money off the tragedies caused by the killer and gain social media stardom. But suddenly when the killer goes all missing, it leaves them no choice, but to keep killing and making headlines to maintain their stardom.
This movie made Mike Flanagan known as one of the greatest horror film maker, even though Flanagan has been involved in other genres as well. The story of Oculus revolves around a mirror that has demonic influence and kills anyone who looks at their reflection in that mirror.
Hellbound: Hellraiser 2
Again, this is one horror movie sequel that that didn’t suck, the 1988 Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 is totally spot on and moves ahead with the original. The film is directed by Tony Randel and the story is about a girl, Kirsty Cotton who heads into danger to save her father, only to be fooled by her evil Uncle Frank, and her demonic step mother and the iconic Pinhead. The movie is dark enough to make your heart beat race while fixating you completely.
