What are you doing tonight? Sleeping? LOL. You thought. Wouldn’t you rather watch a terrifying movie and then spend the entire night overreacting to every random noise in your apartment? I think yes. If Hulu is your streaming service of choice but you don’t feel like scrolling through a bajillion titles, here are 13 of the absolute scariest films the platform has to offer. Honestly, even just watching these trailers will get your heart rate pumping.
This trippy AF movie about a biologist and her team’s dangerous, secret expedition to hunt down an alien entity in a location only known as Area X is not only the most terrifying movie of 2018, but it also stars literally all your faves. Why not sign yourself up for two hours with Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and Oscar Isaac?
Ugh, I don’t even want to type about what happens in Mother!, that’s how weird, gross, and disturbing the Jennifer Lawrence movie really is. Let’s just say it’s a home invasion movie with a huge, uncomfortable spin and call it a day, okay? Watch if you’re brave/don’t have a weak stomach.
A Quiet Place
Yes, the movie with, like, no talking is finally on Hulu! Come John Krasinski cute, bearded face. Stay for the wild ride involving a lot of shushing, bare feet, and scary aliens that will eat you if you so much as sneeze.
Ever with Mean Girls was a horror movie? Well, you’re in luck with Tragedy Girls, a slasher about two morbid, clout-chasing teenagers who create real-life tragedies to boost their social media game. It’s not only quotable as hell, but you also get to see Josh Hutcherson again, so…
Children of the Corn
Wait…you haven’t seen this Stephen King classic yet? WYD? This 1984 horror movie is about a town in Nebraska where the kids murder all the adults. You should probs watch this the next time you think being an adult is the worst because you have to make your own dentist appointments.
What We Become
You know why apocalypse movies are so damn scary? Because when you actually think about it, they could potentially happen IRL. In What We Become, a nasty plague hits a suburban town and it’s pretty much the end of the world. Have fun bathing in Purell after this one.
This indie flick is about a man named Mark who disappeared from his home two years ago. Now, his friend thinks he’s back…but possessed by some sort of evil being. A YouTube comment on the trailer describes this as “probably the most messed-up movie I’ve watched in a while,” and if it’s in a YouTube comment, it’s legit. (I don’t make the rules, sorry!)
The Last Exorcism
Movies that pretend to be documentaries are some of the scariest things you could possibly watch. (The Blair Witch Project and The Fourth Kind still haunt me to this day, tyvm.) The Last Exorcism is about a priest who allows a film crew to create a documentary of the last exorcism he’ll ever perform and yes, it’s as freaky as it sounds.
Hounds of Love
Hounds of Love isn’t, like, “BOO!” scary. It’s messed-up scary…which is even more horrible! It’s about an Australian teen who gets abducted by a serial killer couple in the ’80s, and personally, I almost tapped out of watching this film about 175 times. Also, it’s loosely based on real events. It’s the worst! And the best!
The Amityville Horror
Okay, so maybe the special effects in The Amityville Horror aren’t as convincing today as they were in 1979. But the movie’s a classic AND based on a true story, so you can’t even save yourself with that “Well, it’s not technically real” BS.
If you’ve ever scrolled through Instagram and wondered why everyone goes to, like, Italy on their honeymoons, this movie might clear that up for you. A couple spends their post-wedding trip in a cabin in the woods (???) and the wife briefly goes missing in the woods. When she returns, she’s weird as hell…and things really just go downhill from there.
Mom and Dad
Yikes. Mom and Dad puts a really dark twist on the whole “I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it!” cliché your parents emptily threatened you with as a kid. All the parents in this town go nuts and try to kill all their children. Also, you should probably know that the dad is Nicolas Cage…if that makes it any scarier for you.
Uh, definitely do not watch this one if you’re the kind of paranoid person who sneaks into your significant other’s phone when they’re in the shower. The Canal is about a man who thinks his wife is cheating, right around the same time that he accidentally sees old footage of a brutal murder happening at his house in 1902. He starts to spiral when his wife’s body is found in a nearby canal, which is when it gets super scary.
