NEW YORK – MARCH 31: Real estate photograph of a house located at 112 Ocean Avenue in the town of Amityville, New York March 31, 2005. The Amityville Horror house rich history and beauty are overshadowed by the story of George and Kathy Lutz, the previous residents of 112 Ocean Avenue, who claimed that shortly after moving into the house they fled in terror driven out by paranormal activity. The best selling novel and popular movie have marked the town as the site of the most famous haunted house in history, yet many are unaware that the true history of this house is much darker than “The Amityville Horror’s” icy drafts and bleeding walls. Six members of the DeFeo family were murdered at 112 Ocean Avenue one year before the Lutz family moved in and their tragedy haunts the citizens of Amityville to this day.

A list of the 15 scariest movies on Hulu, including Tales of the Darkside, The Haunting, The Amityville Horror, Hellraiser and more.

Halloween brings to mind cooler temps, changing leaf colors, kids and even adults dressing up in scary costumes. Most of all, it is the time when people love being scared to death. Well, maybe not “death,” but close!

It’s one of the few times per year people pay to be scared. There are haunted houses, scary movies, haunted hayrides, and haunted amusement parks where people pay to be scared.

This year, you don’t have to pay too much to be scared. Hulu has a whole list of movies that will have you on the edge of your seat or afraid to be sitting in the dark alone.

Let’s get the list of scary movies to watch on Hulu this Halloween started with Tales from the Darkside. 

Tales from the Darkside

Director: John Harrison

Starring: Steve Buscemi, David Johansen, James Remar, Debbie Harry, Matthew Lawrence, Christian Slater

I used to watch the television series Tales from the Darkside, which was released in 1983 and lasted four seasons. The story follows Timmy, a newspaper boy who is kidnapped by an evil witch, and as long as Timmy keeps her entertained, she won’t eat him. Timmy tells her three tales to keep from being eaten.

Tales from the Darkside has a freakishly spooky introduction, and the music helps build the suspense, but what is really great about this movie is that you won’t guess the ending.

Each story that is told starts off very reminiscent of the old black and white movies where the acting is a little over the top. When the story first unfolds, you are thinking the acting is a little cheesy. But that’s when the story grabs you and holds you until the very end. It starts off predictable, but as the story progresses, it draws you in and keeps you enthralled. You’ll forget the story is being told by a kid held captive by a witch.

I guarantee you will not be disappointed with this movie.
