New Arrivals for Hulu October 2020

by Dakota Wheeler

This October, aka ‘Spooky Season’, comes with new arrivals to your favorite streaming services. Hulu, in particular, has a wide array of horror films, all of which are sure to scratch that scary movie itch. Their selection includes a good mix of classic and modern films. So if you’re a little nostalgic and want something more classic – or if you wanting something more modern and recent – don’t fear, Hulu has it all.

If you’re feeling classic, then you might want to check out Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise’s timeless, melancholy Vampire flick, Interview With The Vampire. Wesley Snipes’ Blade trilogy will also be making its way to Hulu this October. While the third film is well known as the black sheep of the series, the first two are undeniably iconic comic book movies, as well as fantastic horror films. Especially Blade 2, as it’s directed by Monster movie legend, Guillermo del Toro. If you’ve been having the itch to travel after being stuck in the house for the better part of the year, might we recommend Deep Blue Sea or Snakes on a Plane? Both films, which funny enough star Samuel L. Jackson, are sure to tame your traveling desires.

In terms of modern hits, Hulu is getting just as exciting titles. If you’re a fan of Andy Muschietti’s IT films and are patiently waiting for his take on The Flash, then you’ll want to watch one of his first features, Mama. If you’re following the exciting updates on Scream 5, then you’ll want to watch the highly underrated predecessor, Scream 4. It’s been a rough year, but Hulu is looking to be a fantastic source for escapism and pure old serotonin this Spooky Season.

Check out the full list of movies and shows joining and leaving Hulu in October 2020 and more of our recommendations below. See what’s also coming to Netflix and HBO Max!

Our Recs:


Hulu’s 8-part anthology series follows broken individuals, driven to their upmost limits in desperate acts of survival. Encounters with gothic beasts, fallen angels, and even werewolves define the fine line between man and beast. Monsterland stars highly acclaimed actors, such as Kelly Marie Tran (The Last Jedi), Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Charlie Tahan (Ozark), and many more. Looking to be full of unique scares, this Hulu original is an instant watch this October.

Bad Hair

Bad Hair follows an ambitious young woman in 1989, who after getting a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television, realizes that her flourishing career may come at great costs. Her new hair may just have a mind of its own? This Sundance 2020 gem stars Elle Lorraine (Insecure), Jay Pharoah (SNL), James Van Der Beek (Dawsons Creek), and Lena Waithe (Ready Player One). Directed by Justin Simien (Dear White People), its dark and comedic themes will surely carry conversations within the genre.


Helstrom, Marvel TV’s last outing, follows Daimon and Ana Helstrom the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. With a complicated dynamic full of attitude and skill, the siblings use their abilities to track down the worst humanity can offer. The show stars Tom Austen (Misfits), Sydney Lemmon (Succession), Robert Wisdom (The Dark Knight), and Alain Uy (True Detective).

Leaving Hulu This October

As always with streaming services, every month we get new and exciting things to watch, but at the price of losing titles as well. The cycle continues this October, so let’s take a look at some notable titles you may want to catch before it’s too late. Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, an all-timer full of gruesome, yet impressive effects, is leaving. Sad to see it go for a new Clive Barker Hulu original will also be premiering, Books of Blood. Enjoy them together while you can. The Twilight Saga is too departing after just arriving on the service last month. While these fan-favorite entries do include werewolves and vampires, I wouldn’t consider them horror films. Nonetheless, they hold a big place in pop culture and you may want to see what all the fuss is about. More Robert Pattinson is never a bad thing.
