If you are looking for a list of great horror films on Hulu that are currently available for streaming on the platform, we got you covered. In the list below, I have hand picked ten of the best in the genre to see you through the month of January.

After you get done scanning through all my choices in the following list, you might want to head on over to our 100 of the best slasher movies list for even more ideas on what horrors to watch next.

1. Graveyard Shift (1990)

Graveyard Shift is one of those horror movies you rarely hear people talk about but is actually a hidden gem. The film is based a 1970 novel written by the legendary Stephen King, in which a textile mill becomes a rat-infested nightmare for its employees. Look out for an appearance by a young Brad Dourif. Give it some love on Hulu while you still can.

2. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

Every fan of horror should take the time to sit down and watch Killer Klowns From Outer Space at least once. Crazy, fun bonkers, that’s three simple words to describe what this 1988 gem has to offer. Wait until you see the giant cotton candy cocoons. One of the greatest horror comedies in existence. Get yourself over to Hulu and give it a much-deserved stream.

3. Cujo (1983)

Donna Trenton (Dee Wallace) and her son Tad Trenton (Danny Pintauro) become victims of St. Bernard, a gentle dog who turns into a vicious killing machine after being bitten by a rabid bat. If you are watching this gem for the very first time, be prepared an intense, 93-minute thrill ride. Cujo is one of the top choice horror films on Hulu right now.

4. Misery (1990)

Misery is another film based on Stephen King’s 1987 novel of the same name. When best-selling novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) has a pretty severe car accident, he soon founds himself being rescued by an obsessed fan Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) who keeps him trapped like a prisoner inside her house. Misery is a relentless, 107-minute film with some of the most heart-wrenching scenes of all-time. One of the best horror films on Hulu right now.

5. The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

Director Dan O’Bannon’s 1985 horror comedy is considered by a large majority of gore hounds as one of the all-time greatest zombie films. Featuring punks, tons of gore, and a rocking soundtrack throughout, The Return of the Living Dead is a must-watch for any fan obsessed with Zombies. Why not hop on over to Hulu and give it some love today? You won’t be disappointed.

6. The Monster Squad (1987)

I like to think of director Fred Dekker’s 1987 film The Monster Squad as an horror version of The Goonies. But instead of searching for pirate’s treasure, the kids in Dekker’s film come facet-of-ace with Dracula, the Mummy, the Gill Man and Frankenstein’s Monster who are seeking a magic amulet. If your in the mood for something fun and light-hearted, you can’t go wrong with this one. Give it a spin on Hulu now.

7. The Hitcher (1986)

Director Robert Harmon’s 1986 film The Hitcher is an intense road thriller starring Rutger Hauer as a murderous hitchhiker known as John Ryder, who pursues Jim Halsey played by C. Thomas Howell in a game of cat and mouse. If you enjoy a combination of blood, guts, and fiery explosions, then this one should be high up on your must-watch list. Head on over to Hulu and prepare yourself for a 97-minute thrill ride from start to finish.

8. Children of the Corn (1984)

Director Fritz Kiersch’s classic 1984 slasher film Children of the Corn is a based on Stephen King’s 1977 short horror story of the same name. If the thought of a religious cult of killer kids hiding in a cornfield freaks you out, then you may want to avoid this one. An all-time horror classic that deserves your full attention during its 90-minute runtime.

9. The Fly (1986)

David Cronenberg’s 1986 horror film The Fly certainly isn’t for the squeamish. When Seth (Jeff Goldblum) successfully transports himself through a teleport machine, unbeknownst to him he doesn’t pass through alone. It doesn’t take long before the adverse effects of the error take a toll his body, and then the gruesome gore effects really start to kick in high gear. Fans of monster flicks will love this one. Again, Hulu is the place to stream it right now.

10. Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 (1988)

Director Tony Randel’s Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 is the follow up to Clive Barker’s gruesome 1987 horror film Hellraiser. What can you expect from the sequel, I hear you ask? Well, there’s plenty of bloody violence on offer for those fans of the classic original who are looking for more of the same. Can you handle 100-minutes of practical effects-driven gore? If so, head on over to the Hulu platform and get streaming.
