There’s something for everyone here: Psychological thrillers, ghost stories, horror comedies, kids flicks, remakes of classics and, well, some pretty gross and scary stuff.
We sifted through the archive to find the best they have to offer in 2022, just in time for Halloween season. Read the list below, and watch them all on Hulu now.
In an isolated Oregon town, a middle-school teacher (Keri Russell) and her sheriff brother (Jesse Plemons) become embroiled with her enigmatic student, whose dark secrets lead to terrifying encounters with an ancestral creature.

Blade & Blade II
Wesley Snipes stars as the half-vampire, half-mortal man who becomes a protector of the mortal race while slaying evil vampires in these fun adaptations of the comic.

The Blair Witch Project
Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind. After helping to innovate (and sort of invent) modern viral marketing, this actually delivered on a truly unique horror experience, while sadly spawning other found footage efforts that couldn’t measure up.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
A lawyer takes on a negligent homicide case involving a priest who performed an exorcism on a young girl. Courtroom drama meets exorcism flick. Not bad.

George C. Scott plays a police office who uncovers more than he bargained for as his investigation of a series of murders, which have all the hallmarks of the deceased Gemini serial killer and lead him to question the patients of a psychiatric ward. Contains what many consider one of the all-time best jump scares in horror history.
When a friendly new neighbor moves in next door, a high schooler discovers that he is an ancient vampire who preys on the community. Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell star in this remake of the 1985 horror-comedy.
Ghostbusters & Ghostbusters II
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis star as three parapsychologists forced out of their university funding set up shop as a unique ghost removal service in New York City.

Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count’s teenaged daughter. Adam Sandler leads an all-star voice cast featuring Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi and others. Directed by “Samurai Jack” and “Primal” creator Genndy Tartakovsky.
Let Me In
A bullied young boy befriends a young female vampire who lives in secrecy with her guardian. “The Batman” director Matt Reeves’ remake of the superior “Let the Right One In.” This stars Kodi-Smit McPhee, Chloe Grace Moretz and Richard Jenkins.
Three teens discover that their neighbor’s house is really a living, breathing, scary monster. Underrated computer-animated flick the kids will love.
The Sixth Sense
A boy (Haley Joel Osment) who communicates with spirits that don’t know they’re dead seeks the help of a disheartened child psychologist (Willis). This uber-creepy ghost tale gave M. Night Shyamalan instant rock star status, but also the perfect vehicle for Willis who would again successfully collaborate the writer/director. Did you know the whole time?
