Next month is October, which some have called the spookiest month of the year, and Hulu is getting into the spirit of the season with a handful of spooky and spooky-adjacent new offerings in its streaming library. Starting next month, subscribers will be able to check out the first season of anthology series Monsterland, the premiere of a new take on Clive Barker’s Books Of Blood, the first season of comic adaptation Helstrom (which may or may not tie-in with the MCU, at least tangentially), the premiere of Václav Marhoul’s The Painted Bird (which is more real-life horror than fun spooky horror), and the premiere of the satirical horror film Bad Hair from Dear White People’s Justin Simien (which sounds a bit like a more involved take on one of the “Treehouse Of Horror” segments from The Simpsons).


Other spooky stuff (or spooky-sounding stuff) outside of originals and exclusives: The Blade movies, Species, Vampire, Zombies Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard, Scream 4, Ellen’s Game Of Games season four, season two of The Purge, Friend Request, Hostel and its sequel, House Of 1000 Corpses, The Eye, Hell’s Kitchen season 18, Food Network’s All-Star Halloween Spectacular (it’s not a spooktacular, apparently), and What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

In what may be an effort to save us all some time, the list of things leaving Hulu at the end of October has some familiar titles like Blade: Trinity, Hostel and its sequel, Vampire, Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard, and a few others that are also just going to be spending one month on the platform.

The full list of what’s coming to Hulu in October is below, followed by the list of what’s leaving.
