Right about now you are in that sweet spot between summer and fall where the heat from August still lingers just a bit during the day and you are not quite sick of pumpkin spice everything imaginable. And for some of you, that means one thing: five weeks until Halloween.
Hulu has begun to gear up for October with a spooky schedule of filled with scary slashers, wicked witches, haunted houses and creepy crawlies. Both for horror hounds and the kiddies alike, there is enough scary movies to go around to keep everyone happy.
So, if you are are trying to fill your days between the parties, first-rate haunted houses and second-rate scares, here are a few movies you can stream to keep you busy in the days when you don’t have to dress up like Harley Quinn or Dead Jon Snow.
American Horror Story (Season 5) (FX)
The best of all the American Horror Stories. Indie rock goth soundtrack with Lady Gaga making out with a vampire Angela Bassett. This is the American Horror Story America deserves.
The Amityville Horror (1979)
The Amityville Horror (2005)
Compare and contrast the superb original with the remake that will make you happy that Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool can allow him the ability to say no once in awhile.

The Boston Strangler (1968)
Tony Curtis plays Albert DeSalvo, a serial killer that is ahead of cops at every turn. If Tony Curtis as the Boston Strangler doesn’t entice you to watch this, how about Henry Fonda as the no-nonsense cop that’s hot on his trail?
Candyman 3: Day of the Dead (1999)
Original tagline: “If you got a taste for terror, than you have a date with Carrie.”
The best. DePalma. King. Spacek. Travolta. Laurie. Katt. Yes, even Katt.
The Descent (2005)
The perfect combination of the true terror of small spaces AND female frenemies.
Kill List (2011)
Poltergeist II: The Other Side (1986)
Poltergeist III (1988)
Just enough Poltergeist movies to have a mediocre Poltergeist movie marathon.
Great little horror gem about a verbal virus that affects a small community by turning them into violent zombies.
Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers (1988)
Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland (1989)
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Back when Tim Burton’s love to Johnny Depp was just a crush and his codependence on Danny Elfman was more a passing fancy, there was Sleepy Hollow, super entertaining, great fun and nothing like the original story.
Patricia Arquette is a hairdresser who develops a small skin issue.
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Here is the trailer. Enjoy the trip in the wayback machine. You’re welcome.
Troll 2 (1991)
The slightly mediocre first movie (starring Julia-Louis Dreyfus AND Sonny Bono) is overshadowed by the infamy of the second awful, awful AWFUL movie.
Zombie Nation (2005)
Despite what the title claims, there are only five zombies in this movie. More of an association then a nation.
