October is in full swing! Huluween is back, and this year, there is a malevolent presence haunting the platform itself. Uluh, an evil spirit, will be watching from inside as brave viewers sign-in to catch their favorite Halloween classics or find new ones to satisfy their hunger for fear.
Hulu is putting viewers at the center of a spooky and immersive on-channel world as the mysterious Uluh makes herself known throughout the month. It is not quite clear what, or who, she wants, but all will be revealed in an origin story short film that will premiere on October 25.
Last year, Hulu subscribers spent their October binging on all the horror goodies, watching over 120 million hours* of Huluween programming, and there is no shortage of creepy content available for those looking to get into the holiday spirit all month long. Today, Hulu will premiere 18 brand new “Bite Size Halloween” shorts, ranging from the terrifying to the ridiculous, and featuring some familiar faces including Eric Roberts, Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), and Yalitza Aparicio (Roma). The short films explore different areas of the horror genre and provide a platform for exciting up-and-coming filmmakers.
The experience will also feature Original and acquired programming in the curated Huluween Hub, including the premieres of horror favorites like Censor (premiering 10/14), The Evil Next Door (premiering 10/21), and Gaia (premiering 10/22), and classics like The Rocky Horror Picture Show (premiering 10/1), as well as bone-chilling TV episodes and movies from the Hulu library, curated into hand-picked collections like “Humorous Horror,” Frights for the Whole Family,” “Terrifying TV,” “Foreign Frights,” and many more!
On October 29th, in conjunction with Hulu’s Initiative 29, up-and-coming black filmmaker Phillip Youmans’ original short film Voodoo will be released on the platform.
Invite your friends over, grab a bag of popcorn, throw on your P.J.s, and check out Hulu‘s Huluween that featuring all the thrills and chills you’re craving!
