Hulu launches Huluween

Huluween is haunting Hulu once again.

Starting today, the Halloween-themed hub has a bone-chilling selection of popular Halloween TV episodes and movies.

The hub will also bring fans exclusive, new content throughout the month, including seven spooky short films from up-and-coming filmmakers, selected in collaboration with Sundance Institute and the premieres of returning series Castle Rock, Light as a Feather and Into the Dark and the highly anticipated Hulu Original Films Little Monsters and Wounds  

This week, Hulu and Blumhouse Television returns with the  year-round horror event Hulu Original Series, Into The Dark with a special Halloween episode, Uncanny Annie. Launching October 4, the episode follows a group of college students who get trapped in a mysterious board game that brings their darkest secrets and fears to life, where they must play to escape… and win to survive. 

Hulu Original Series Light As A Feather, produced by AwesomenessTV, Wattpad and Grammnet, also returns to the service October 4. Doubling down by playing a new round of “Light as a Feather” putting all their lives on the line, Season 2 continues as McKenna and friends are optimistic that they’re finally done with the curse. But is the curse done with them? 

Hulu Original Film Little Monsters makes its streaming premiere on Friday, October 11. Starring Academy Award-Winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad and Alexander England, the critically-acclaimed Australian horror comedy begins with a harmless school field trip which ends with a zombie outbreak. Little Monsters world-premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Written and Directed by Under The Shadow’s Babak Anvari, Wounds streams on Hulu on October 18.  The feature film follows the story of a New Orleans bartender whose life begins to unravel after a series of disturbing and inexplicable events that begin to happen to him after picking up a phone left behind at a bar.  With a star studded cast including Armie Hammer, Dakota Johnson and Zazie Beets, Wounds also made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2019 followed by a screening at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2019. 

Rounding out the month of Original premieres, Hulu’s critically acclaimed series Castle Rock returns for Season 2 on October 23, starring Lizzy Caplan and Tim Robbins.  Season 2 follows a feud between warring clans that comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes, Stephen King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock. 

Lastly, Zomboat!, a zombie-horror-comedy import, will premiere on Friday, October 25 in co-production with iTV. The series features a pair of sisters as they escape the apocalypse with the help of Dorothy, an early-80’s wood paneled canal boat.
