Calling all witches and goblins: Hulu’s new Halloween movies and TV lineup for October has arrived just in time for spooky season. To compliment your pumpkin cold brew from Starbucks and pumpkin sheet mask from Trader Joe’s, Hulu unveiled a list of both original content and classics on Sept. 24. Between a new film that stars Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o as a schoolteacher amid a zombie outbreak to select movies from the Saw franchise, Hulu’s October 2019 programming is sure to contain something for everyone to enjoy before and during All Hallows’ Eve.
More so, Hulu’s lineup will include follow up seasons to series you’ve simply been dying to see return. Since Halloween season isn’t complete without the narratives of Stephen King, Castle Rock returns for a second season with Annie Wilkes’, King’s psychopathic nurse of Misery notoriety, arrival in town. Need to balance the spooky content with something sweet? Food Network’s Halloween Baking Championship and Halloween Wars also joins the roster of October content on the streaming service, so viewers can have their psychological gore and indulge in cupcakes, too.
