New Hulu Releases In October 2018: More TV Shows And Movies Coming And Going (US)

Time for some scares.


It's October, which means it's Halloween season, and the streaming service Hulu has quite a few choices in horror films being added added throughout the month. In addition, Hulu has new TV series being added and a few original series. Many of these arrivals happened on October 1, so there's plenty to dive into.

If you're looking for some classic, Halloween scares, look no further than 1999's The Blair Witch Project. It follows a group of documentary filmmakers who travel to the woods of Maryland to uncover the truth of a local myth involving a legendary witch. They quickly find out that this isn't a myth at all. The film began the found footage genre of the '00s. And if you're looking for more in this genre, you should check out the Rec series. The movies revolve around a virus infecting the brains of its host, turning them into zombie-like creatures. Rec was remade in 2008 under the title Quarantine. All four movies in this Spanish horror series Rec arrived the same day, October 1.

Now Playing: Amazon Prime Video - Best Movies & TV Shows To Watch In October 2018

If scares aren't your thing, and you're looking for something a little lighter, then you'll want to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas, which comes out on October 2. The classic claymation movie unites Christmas and Halloween in one bizarre movie, which is totally fitting for director Henry Selick (Coraline) and writer Tim Burton (Batman). Also, the tongue-in-cheek action movie Starship Troopers headed to Hulu on October 1, in case you want to watch Casper Van Dien shoot some oversized guns.

Sadly, there are some great movies leaving the service. On Halloween, 28 Weeks Later, There Will Be Blood, Sixteen Candles, Any Given Sunday, and more will be leaving, so make sure to watch those before they're gone forever.

Check out everything coming and leaving Hulu below as well as our recommendations for new and returning TV shows for the Fall that will surely be awesome.
