October is here, and you know what's coming: Halloween. Few love scary movie time as much as we do, so here's a quick list of Hulu's scariest films to add to your queue. Or else.
Before this M. Night Shyamalan thriller falls completely apart, it packs a number of intense scares. One of our favorites? The first time we glimpse an alien on Mel Gibson's roof. But the scene that really got our heart going? Seeing that creepy, alien hand reaching out from under the pantry door! Augh!
In this Spanish hit (remade in the U.S. as "Quarantine") a reporter and her cameraman investigate a "disturbance" at an apartment building. It's one of the most claustrophobic and effective found-footage films. And that ending is a killer.
'28 Weeks Later' (2007)
The zombie situation from "28 Days Later" has been contained -- or so some very mistaken survivors think -- in this gory sequel. It's not for the faint of heart!
'The Hills Have Eyes' (1977)
What's even creepier than zombies? Dog-killing mutant cannibals! Augh! Wes Craven's low-budget classic is cover-your-eyes, never-sleep-again scary.
'The Others' (2001)
A twist on the haunted house movie finds war widow Nicole Kidman trying to protect her sunlight-sensitive children. Someone, perhaps ghosts, or the sinister servants, are sabotaging her every move. The shocking truth: Kidman and her children are the ghosts, and it's the living who keep removing those damn curtains.
'I Saw the Devil' (2010)
In this grisly South Korean psychological thriller, a spy tracks down the serial killer who brutally murdered his fiancee. Not for the faint of heart.
'The Fly' (1986)
Not content to simply swap a human's head with a fly's, David Cronenberg's remake of the '50s classic has Jeff Goldblum mutating on a genetic level into an acid-spewing monstrosity.
Welcome to the twisted, extremely gory mind of Clive Barker. Here, he gives us one of the greatest horror icons of all time, the diabolical Pinhead. Now there's some fuel for your nightmares.
'Paranormal Activity' (2007)
The low-budget, found-footage sensation that started the boom for more low-budget horror. The first scare-fest is still arguably the best. And that final scene? 11 years later, we are still white-knuckling our armrests.
