The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Three college kids venture out into the woods to shoot a documentary about a local legend, and it all goes south from there. Well, it’s hard to tell if things are going south when you can’t trust your compass or map, and every night something terrifying happens. This movie rules, and it’s not hard to see why contemporary audiences thought it was all for real. Find this footage for yourself on Hulu November 1st.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
Sweeney Todd (Johnny Depp) is a barber seeking revenge. His downstairs neighbor (Helena Bonham Carter) is a struggling baker. They combine their talents to kill and cook the denizens of Fleet Street, feeding mystery meat pies to a hungry public. This is one of Tim Burton’s best films, and he has a ton of good ones. You can sing along with the sorrow when Sweeney Todd hits Hulu November 1st.
Evil Dead II (1987)
Ash just wants a quiet getaway in a cabin in the woods, but his plans are derailed when the woods come to life. The next 75 minutes are non-stop splatstick comedy as Ash fights off the woods, the cabin, and even his own hand. Is this the greatest movie ever made? I mean, probably! Decide for yourself when it hits Hulu on November 30th.
Blood Vessel (2019)
Being lost at sea is terrifying enough on its own. It only gets worse when you think you’re being rescued, only to find out you now have to deal with monsters too. This Australian film was partially shot on an authentic World War II ship! Stream it exclusively on Shudder starting November 5th.
This South Korean horror mystery follows a young woman named Yoo-mi. She travels to a hotel to find an old family friend, but strange things are happening in her mom’s old room.

Saturday the 14th (1981)
This horror-comedy follows a family moving into a scary old mansion. Things get hairy when and ancient evil book unleashes a horde of terrors on the hapless family. It’s more spoof than spook, and it has basically nothing to do with the Friday the 13th series, but it’s a fun little monster mash in its own right! Catch it on Shudder on, you guessed it, Saturday the 14th.
In a movie theater in a small religious town, five teenagers find a mysterious film reel. It’s an old adult film, but it unleashes something even more shocking: a sex demon. This SXSW selection released on VOD and in drive-in theaters at the beginning of the pandemic, but now it’s heading to streaming. Catch it exclusively on Shudder starting November 24th.
