New on Hulu: All the Movies and TV Coming in October

At Hulu, October isn’t the month of Halloween, or even All Hallows’ Eve: It’s Huluween time for this streaming service, friends, and they’re celebrating the holiday with a couple of particularly spooky additions to their library, as well as some titles that may seem scary at first, but really aren’t so bad upon further inspection.

Case in point: LAIKA Studios’ latest visually stunning stop-motion-animated adventure, Missing Link, in which an eight-foot-tall, 630-pound Sasquatch (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) turns out to be a big sweetheart named Susan who just wants to go find his family. The charming, star-studded family film from the studio behind Kubo and the Two Strings and Coraline, released in April, was a critical triumph, but a commercial failure, and now Hulu users have a chance to see what the viewing public missed out on. Elsewhere among the streamer’s October film additions are a tidal wave of titles crashing on Oct. 1: 1986 Oliver Stone Vietnam war epic Platoon, John Singleton’s iconic, Oscar-nominated crime drama Boyz N’ The Hood, 2008 found-footage horror-thriller Cloverfield, Debra Granik’s 2010 Jennifer Lawrence career launcher Winter’s Bone, Steven Spielberg/Stanley Kubrick collaboration A.I. Artificial Intelligence, over-the-top John Travolta/Nicolas Cage two-hander Face/Off, 1999 Matt Damon career highlight The Talented Mr. Ripley, Oscar-winning Tom Cruise/Dustin Hoffman drama Rain Man, Paul Verhoeven’s Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring sci-fi actioner Total Recall, 1969’s original True Grit, Darren Aronofsky’s Mickey Rourke-led 2008 drama The Wrestler, Jason Reitman romantic dramedy Up in the Air, John Hughes romantic-comedy relic Sixteen Candles, a trio of sports classics in 1986’s Hoosiers, 1994’s Major League II and 1999’s Varsity Blues, and multiple entries in the Blade, Hellraiser, Saw and Naked Gun (one of these things is not like the others) franchises. That’s just the first of the month, though—following later in October are Kate Mara-starring Iraq war drama Meagan Leavey (Oct. 9), Lupita Nyong’o-led Hulu zombie horror-comedy Little Monsters (Oct. 11), one of Paste’s top movies of 2019 so far in Nia DaCosta’s modern Western Little Woods (Oct. 14), 2019 Toni Morrison documentary Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (Oct. 17), and another Hulu original in Armie Hammer- and Dakota Johnson-starring thriller Wounds (Oct. 18), among others. Hulu’s best-known for TV, but its film library just gets better.

On the small-screen front, Hulu’s October additions are highlighted by Season Two of Stephen King-inspired, Emmy-nominated anthology series Castle Rock (Oct. 23), in which a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex), King’s nurse from hell and Misery antagonist, gets waylaid in the titular town of Castle Rock. Tim Robbins, Paul Sparks, Yusra Warsama, Barkhad Abdi, Elsie Fisher and Matthew Alan also star in the second installment of the series, which is executive produced by J.J. Abrams, and created by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason. Earlier in the month, however, TV enthusiasts have plenty to look forward to, including the latest episode of Hulu’s innovative horror anthology Into The Dark, a new hour of which arrives each month, tied to a specific holiday. October’s episode, titled “Uncanny Annie” (Oct. 4), deals, of course, with Halloween: On the spookiest night of the year, a group of college students find themselves trapped in a mysterious board game that brings their darkest secrets and fears to life, and they must play to escape … and win to survive. The complete second season of Hulu horror series Light as a Feather (Oct. 4) arrives that same day, in which McKenna (Liana Liberato, The Beach House) and friends race to escape the origins of their latest cursed round of the series’ eponymous game. Season 6B of Comedy Central’s Drunk History (Oct. 5) debuts a day later, and Hulu originals Letterkenny (Oct. 14) and Looking For Alaska (Oct. 18) debut their seventh and first seasons, respectively, soon after. The month’s TV additions end on an appropriately Huluween-y note with English zom-com Zomboat! (Oct. 25), in which two sisters escape the zombie apocalypse with the help of Dorothy, an early-’80s, wood-paneled canal boat. And if you feel no shame in enjoying reality TV, there’s a bunch of it hitting Hulu throughout October, from American Pickers and Diners, Drive Ins and Dives to The Real Housewives of Atlanta and New Jersey. No judgment!

Hulu  isn’t losing much at the end of October, so don’t fret—just be advised that Bull Durham, Dances with Wolves, Unbreakable, Idiocracy, Bulletproof Monk, Drumline, Nacho Libre, Wayne’s World 2, Indecent Proposal, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium and White Men Can’t Jump, among others, are exiting on Oct. 31.
