Hulu is dropping its biggest release of the summer this month, with the new season of Veronica Mars coming next week, so that doesn’t leave very much excitement for August, but August should really be used to that by now. It’s one of those transition months, landing between the barbecues of July and the new school year getting into full swing in September, making it just 31 days of hot weather and relatively standard streaming offerings. That’s not to say there won’t be anything good on Hulu next week, though, because there are certainly some things worth watching.


For starters, August 2 will see the premiere of Hulu’s next entry in its Into The Dark horror anthology, the cleverly titled School Spirit. According to a press release, it’s about kids in a haunted school. (Get it?) Hulu is also getting the mysterious and magical Amazing Jonathan Documentary on August 16, telling the story of the famous comedy musician who embarked on one last tour after receiving a fatal diagnosis… but there may be something weirder afoot. You can also check out twisty, funny, murder story A Simple Favor on August 22, meet Matthew McConaughey’s Moondog in Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum on August 9, and get ready for that Lincoln Lawyer TV show (speaking of McConaughey) with the original Brad Furman movie on August 27.
