Hulu launched its second annual Huluween celebration on Tuesday, with personalized, Halloween-themed hubs for viewers who want to fully immerse themselves in the season. In addition to 800 Halloween movies and more than 5,000 episodes of new and archival TV series, this year’s Huluween will also provide new content throughout the month of October.
Plus, Hulu is bringing back its Huluween Film Fest, which gives seven up-and-coming filmmakers the opportunity to showcase horror-themed short films on the platform. This year’s films include Hidden Mother, Ride, Swiped to Death, Flagged, Undo, The Dunes, and The Ripper, which are all available now on Hulu, as well as on YouTube. Whichever filmmaker gets the highest level of engagement on Hulu and Hulu’s YouTube channel will win $50,000 toward production of a feature-length film.
Plus, this Huluween sees the premiere of Little Monsters starring Lupita Nyong’o, a zombie horror comedy where a harmless school field trip ends with a zombie outbreak (Oct. 11); Wounds, 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 (Oct. 18); new series Zomboat!, about a pair of sisters who escape the apocalypse with the help of Dorothy, wood-paneled canal boat from the ’80s (Oct. 25); and new seasons of Light as a Feather (Oct. 4) and Castle Rock (Oct. 23).
