Hulu is getting in the Halloween spirit this October!
The streaming service just launched “Huluween” on Friday (October 1) with 18 brand new, Bite Size Halloween shorts.
The shorts range from the terrifying to the ridiculous, and featuring some familiar faces including Eric Roberts, Troian Bellisario, and Yalitza Aparicio. The short films explore different areas of the horror genre and provide a platform for exciting up-and-coming filmmakers.

In addition to the shorts, the Huluween event will feature classic film premieres and spooky action all month long.
There will be 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.
New to Huluween this year is 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.
How do you find the Huluween hub? Just open your Hulu app and it should pop right up. You can also go to the Hubs tab and it should be right there as well.
On October 29, in conjunction with Hulu’s Initiative 29, up-and-coming black filmmaker Phillip Youmans’ original short film Voodoo will be released on the platform.
