Hi horror fans! I'm continuing my lists of suggestions with a collection of horror movies on Hulu. For clarity, I'll give a brief reason of why I liked each one, so that way you'll know if it's more for cheese or actual horror. 31
Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned, hellish compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns.
This is more for gore junkies than anything. With that said, the group of characters we follow are surprisingly likable for a Zombie movie. Cabin in the Woods
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin, where they get more than they bargained for, discovering the truth behind the cabin in the woods.
Very much a dark comedy rather than a straight horror film, I really appreciate its homages and the funny dialogue. Evil Dead II
The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits holes up in a cabin with a group of strangers while the demons continue their attack.
I'd say this is a balance of 80s practical effects cheese and some imagery that's genuinely scary. And I have to mention how Campbell gives 110 percent as Ash. The Host
A monster emerges from Seoul's Han River and begins attacking people. One victim's loving family does what it can to rescue her from its clutches.
The monster is unique and the cast of characters are all likable. Smart, fun and sometimes brutal. The Houses October Built
Five friends are stalked by a group of mysterious and disturbed individuals while on a road trip looking for the ultimate haunted house attraction.
I am a sucker for found footage films and films about extreme haunts. This is a two-in-one for me! If you watch it, please avoid the sequel. The Lodge
A soon-to-be stepmom is snowed in with her fiancé's two children at a remote holiday village. Just as relations begin to thaw between the trio, some strange and frightening events take place.
If this one has been spoiled for you, I think it'll be too slow to enjoy. If you are going in without a clue, then I could see the slow burn being worth it. Either way, it is a sloooow burn movie. Mom and Dad
A teenage girl and her younger brother must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origin causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.
This has great performances by Cage and Blair as the main two parents. There are some good moments of tension, and--to my happiness--the violence against kids is more offscreen than in your face. Oculus
A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.
I think this movie excels at showing minds crumble apart, and that is a special type of horror for me. Overlord
A small group of American soldiers find horror behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day.
This one feels more "war film" than horror to me, but there are certainly horrific moments. Most of the horror comes from gore, and I think the gore was pretty well done. Pet Sematary
Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
This movie is so bad it's good, to me. Lithgow's performance is ridiculous, as is Clarke's. There wasn't a moment of this movie I could take seriously. Would probably make a good drinking game.
