Kelly McCreary, Grey’s Anatomy

ABC/Liliane Lathan

If you just checked your calendar and realized that you missed the fall TV season, then don’t worry! You can catch up on almost all the fall premieres on Hulu, broadcast TV’s streaming lifeboat for television shows. Hulu streams nearly every program on Fox and ABC the day after they air, making Hulu like a lazy man’s — or maybe just a smarter man’s — broadcast insurance plan. So go ahead and watch the season premieres of Grey’s Anatomy, Abbott Elementary, and The Resident

If you’re more in the mood for something scary to get you prepped for Halloween, Hulu has the revival of Clive Barker’s seminal horror film Hellraiser, starring Sense8‘s Jamie Clayton as Pinhead, and the original film Grimcutty, which turns internet challenges on social media into a monster hunting teens. Also coming this month are the scary British movie The Matriarch (Oct. 21), the Blade films, the V/H/S/ franchise, Fright NightLet Me In, and Antlers.

We’ve put together our picks for what to watch on Hulu in October, plus lists of everything coming to and leaving Hulu in the month. 

The best new shows and movies on Hulu in October

Annie Murphy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy, Schitt's Creek

Annie Murphy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, Schitt’s Creek

Pop TV

Schitt’s Creek (Oct. 3)

The comedy that heard its name called all night during the 2020 Emmys will now be a Hulu exclusive after years on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek, the closest thing TV has to a warm blanket, aired on CBS and Pop TV from 2015 to 2020 and follows the Rose family as they see their massive fortune dwindle, forcing them to relocate to the small Ontario town of Schitt’s Creek. Though its early seasons aired quietly, it became a massive hit in its later seasons and smashed Emmy records when it won all seven major comedy awards, including acting wins for stars Dan Levy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, and Annie Murphy. [Trailer]       

Hellraiser (Oct. 7)

The 1987 horror classic Hellraiser gets “reimagined” for a new audience, whatever that means. Is it a prequel? Is it a sequel? Is it a do-over? Do we even care what it means? It’s Hellraiser, Clive Barker’s franchise about the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension led by horror icon Pinhead. The story sounds similar to the first film: When a woman plays with a mysterious puzzle box, she summons Pinhead and their crew, and things get gruesome. In a cool twist on the franchise, this Pinhead will be portrayed by Sense 8‘s Jamie Clayton. [Trailer]

Grimcutty (Oct. 10)

Hulu’s Halloween continues with this original horror film that turns something we’re familiar with — parents don’t get memes — into something frightening. Yes, you read that correctly. After an internet challenge called Grimcutty causes alarm among moms and dads because it leads to kids harming themselves, Grimcutty manifests itself into a monster and really starts hurting kids. Naturally, the parents don’t get it because they’re stupid, and the monster goes on a killing spree. [Trailer]     

Rosaline (Oct. 14)

In this take on Romeo and Juliet, we see the famous romance through the eyes of Juliet’s cousin Rosaline (Kaitlyn Dever), another love interest of Romeo who got left behind. As Rosaline watches Romeo mack on Juliet, she concocts schemes to keep these famously tragic lovers apart. [Trailer unavailable]

Matriarch (Oct. 21)

Another Hulu original horror film in time for Halloween. After suffering an overdose, a woman returns home to a small English village to be taken care of by her mom, and she notices that she and the entire town don’t seem quite right. Did we mention the black goo oozing in the woman’s mouth? [Trailer]
