If you’re into the darker side of cinema, Hulu is a great place to sink your teeth into some of the best horror films out there. From psychological thrillers to tales of possession, murder, and zombie outbreaks, nearly every facet of the genre is covered, and there’s always something new to watch.
Keeping up with the platform’s latest scary titles can be a bit of an endeavor, though, which is why we’ve put together this monthly roundup of all the best horror movies on Hulu right now. This August, you’ll be able to feast your eyes on such hits as Prometheus, Little Monsters, and writer-director Kate Dolan’s unnerving You Are Not My Mother.
The Field Guide to Evil is an international anthology film that brings together eight unique genre tales with folkloric bents. Of particular note are some of the recognizable writers/directors, including Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio and In Fabric), Veronika Franz, and Severin Fiala (Goodnight Mommy and The Lodge), with each segmented novella horror delivering an homage to a significant mythological terror. While not every short hits as hard as the last, the mixed bag ends up in “glass half-full” terrain, with plenty to write home about in terms of vision and execution.
