What’s New to Stream on Hulu for October 2019

Horror fans will find plenty to enjoy this month on Hulu.
Castle Rock
By  · Published on October 3rd, 2019

Hulu has been stuck in the third place position when it comes to movie streaming behind Netflix and Amazon Prime because most people still see them strictly as a home for next-day television. They have movies too, though, and more than a few of them are gems that make Hulu a destination beyond last night’s TV shows.

The complete list of new movies and shows hitting Hulu this month — October 2019 — is below, but I wanted to highlight the best of the bunch along with several others worth seeking out.

Hulu Pick of the Month

Castle Rock is unlike any other Stephen King adaptation in that rather than bring a single tale of King’s to the screen it’s mashing them together into something original. Season two promises more turns and surprises, and this time the focus looks to be a young Annie Wilkes in her pre-Misery days, and if the trailer is to be believed she might be crossing paths with some of the vampires from ‘Salem’s Lot? I am so in.

Sundance Horrors!

Little Monsters

Two horror films that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival back in January were picked up by Hulu and are finally set to be released this month. Little Monsters arrives October 11th and is an Australian zom-com pitting a fantastic Lupita Nyong’o against a park filled with zombies trying to eat her kindergarten class. It’s bloody and funny in equal measure and features an utterly brilliant turn by Josh Gad as a popular kids entertainer. On the other end of the quality spectrum, Wounds starts streaming October 18th and tells the increasingly dull tale of a bartender punished for his good deed. There’s promise early on, but despite the cast (Armie Hammer, Dakota Johnson, Zazie Beetz) and the writer/director of the creepy as hell Under the Shadow (2016) it just falls apart well before the end. But hey, your mileage may vary.

Less Fancy Horrors

Event Horizon

Hulu is bringing plenty of classic (and just plain older) horror movies to the service this month, and many of them are worth re-watches and first-time watches alike. The Blade trilogy (1998, 2002, 2004) is an exercise in diminishing returns, but all three offer up some fun action/horror shenanigans. Event Horizon (1997) is a gory blend of cosmic horror and philosophical bloodletting, The Orphanage (2007) remains a modern ghost story gem, and Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990) delivers some fun horror anthology antics.
