October is here, and with that comes a month’s worth of scary programming as Hulu launches its annual celebration, Huluween.
Throughout the month, the streamer is offering a personalized hub of spooky content, including 800 Halloween titles and more than 5,000 episodes of original and popular TV series.
Hulu is also premiering new original films Little Monsters and Wounds as part of the programming slate.
Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad and Alexander England, Little Monsters chronicles a school field trip that ends in a zombie outbreak. It launches Friday, Oct. 11 on Hulu.
Meanwhile, Wounds follows a New Orleans bartender whose life begins to unravel after a series of events that occur after picking up an abandoned phone at a bar. Armie Hammer, Dakota Johnson and Zazie Beets star in the film, premiering Oct. 18.
Hulu is also bringing back Huluween Film Fest, its annual showcase that allows seven up-and-coming filmmakers to showcase their horror-themed short films. The filmmaker with the highest level of engagement on Hulu and Hulu’s YouTube channel will win $50,000 towards production of their feature-length film.
Huluween’s audience grows every year, making it a prime time for marketers to advertise on the streaming platform, Hulu said in a statement. This year, viewers will see multiple brands—namely Papa John’s and CarMax—who are embracing Hulu’s “spooktacular” audience through branded integrated spots and custom creative.
