Even though Halloween is already some time behind us, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy horror movies all year round. Indeed, sampling some of the best genre films during the festive season can be a good release from other commitments. To this end, Hulu is bringing us a few great horror titles for December, adding to what will be a strong lineup of content for the streaming service next month. What pictures, then, should people expect on the platform?
Well, older options include the Alaska-set vampire story 30 Days of Night from 2007, wherein a town has to survive a month of darkness while fending off bloodsuckers. Josh Hartnett and Melissa George are among the cast in this underrated comic book adaptation from David Slade.
Meanwhile, for those curious about how The Exorcist franchise became something of a trainwreck, Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist was the Paul Schrader version of a project that was extensively reworked into The Exorcist: The Beginning. Neither of these entries in the series are great, but Dominion arguably edges the two in terms of quality and will be heading to Hulu next month.
The streaming site also have the well regarded She Dies Tomorrow from Amy Seimetz on the way, which had a limited release earlier this year. Kate Lyn Sheil plays Amy in the film, a woman who believes she’s dying the next day, an idea that seems to spread through those she comes into contact with. Seimetz’s work is currently certified as 85% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and is reportedly an ideal story for our current COVID-19 times. If that’s not enough for horror fans, though, then on the series side, Hulu will have the second season of Joe Hill’s NOS4A2 from December 21st, too.
A good selection of additions, then, for the platform, with She Dies Tomorrow being perhaps the highlight for the strong critical response it’s received. However, this might also finally be the time to see what could have been with Schrader’s take on The Exorcist‘s legacy.
If nothing here grabs your attention, though, there are a few more genre titles that might excite you that will also be added to Hulu in December and the full lineup can be viewed via the link below.
