Huluween is back for the third year with more chills and thrills for horror fans, with a full slate of nail-biting new Hulu Originals, a devilish drive-in movie theater event and an online Halloween immersive experience for fans to enjoy from home. More than six billion minutes of Huluween programming were watched last year.
As the ultimate destination for Halloween lovers to “Scream It Out,” the Huluween content hub now has more titles than ever before. Highlighting the most spooktacular content on the service, the hub includes hand-picked collections of the best Halloween content including three feature collections: “Screamy as Hell,” for the most haunted fans; “Spooky not Scary,” for the viewers who are ready to have a fright; but still sleep at night and “Humorous Horror,” featuring light-hearted Halloween fun.
Animation lovers and Huluween trick-or-treaters who want to skip the big scares can tune into the family-friendly Hulu Original Madagascar: A Little Wild “A Fang-Tastic Halloween” special from DreamWorks Animation, the trailer for which has just debuted. After hearing spooky rumors about the new habitat resident — a bat! — Marty is determined to protect his friends from the newcomer. But when the bat helps him out of a tough situation, Marty learns it’s better to get to know someone rather than judge them on false stereotypes. Premieres October 21 on Hulu.
Hulu Originals premiering for Huluween also include anthology series Monsterland (Oct. 2), Clive Barker-inspired Books of Blood (Oct. 7), Marvel comics series Helstrom (Oct. 16) and Sundance-selected horror satire Bad Hair (Oct. 23). Other Huluween highlights include Babak Anvari’s Wounds, hilarious zombie romp Little Monsters, and 22 new hair-raising installments of Blumhouse’s Into the Dark. Plus, 30 bone-chilling Bite Size Halloween shorts from emerging filmmakers at 20th Digital Studio.
For Los Angeles-based Halloween fans, Hulu is hosting a drive-in theater event filled with frights and delights, including an immersive haunted drive-through, the L.A. premiere of Bad Hair, and (s)care packages for all attendees over the course of four nights. The event will run from October 22-25 at the LA Equestrian Center and will feature screenings of Hocus Pocus, Books of Blood, Beetlejuice, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Carrie (1976). Music superstar DJ D-Nice will open the weekend with a performance at the Bad Hair premiere on Thursday, and will return to close out the experience on Sunday. Ticket requests are now live at huluween.com; limited to 150 cars per screening.
Finally, all Huluween fans are invited to visit The Screamlands, Hulu’s first-ever online haunted immersive experience. Beginning Thursday, Oct. 8, visitors 18 years and older can travel through the immersive, 360-degree online experience that features five scream-inducing rooms like “Bad Hair Hellway” and “Huluween Hall” which include spooky surprises behind every turn.
