Looking for a good scary movie to watch as Halloween approaches? Look into Hulu. Below is a list of great horror flicks on the streaming service that will fit right into your binge-watching waiting line. But, before we get there, let’s look at some worthy alternatives.
M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense (1999), the Swedish vampire story Let the Right One In (2008), and the English-language remake Let Me In are all available on Hulu (2010). There’s also the found footage classic The Blair Witch Project (1999), the psychological horror film The Lodge (2019), and the action film Shadow in the Cloud starring Chloe Grace Moretz (2020). Finally, you should see Titane (2021), Censor (2021), Spring (2014), horror comedy Fright Night (2011), and romance-gone-wrong Fresh (2022).
Now for the main selections. All received Metacritic scores of at least 70.
1. Black Swan (2010)
Reserve your seat for this surreal psychological horror film about the unraveling of a talented ballerina. Nina, played by Natalie Portman, is under pressure to play not only the innocent and elegant White Swan but also the dark and sensual Black Swan in a Swan Lake production. But she doesn’t fit the mold of the latter swan as well as newcomer Lily (Mila Kunis). Her obsessive pursuit of perfection is depicted in the film.
2. Possessor (2020)
Brandon Cronenberg (son of horror director David Cronenberg) wrote and directed this film about possession. The film follows an assassin (Andrea Riseborough) who takes control of strangers’ bodies in order to carry out targets. When an assignment goes wrong, she is thrown from the pilot’s seat. If you enjoy sci-fi and horror films, you should watch this one.

3. Hatching (2022)
This Finnish creature film is straight out of your feathery nightmares. Tinja, a 12-year-old girl, discovers a strange egg that hatches into a monstrous bird in the film. The monstrous creature stands in stark contrast to her family’s expectations of perfection. So it’s similar to a cursed version of E.T. Well, perhaps not. You can observe and draw your own conclusions.
4. Thelma (2017)
While not strictly a horror film, Thelma is a compelling supernatural thriller that deserves a spot on this list. A young woman begins college and develops feelings for a fellow student. It quickly becomes clear that she possesses unwieldy abilities. This breathtaking, haunting Norwegian coming-of-age film is a must-see.
