Just in time for Halloween, Hulu is tapping into the horror genre. With originals like Castle Rock, Into the Dark, and the upcoming Marvel series Helstrom, there’s a lot to choose from. And just in time for Halloween, the streaming service is adding the horror movie Books of Blood to its slate next month.
Based on the popular 1980s anthology series by Clive Barker, Books of Blood will offer trippy, supernatural takes on a few of the author’s short stories. Barker’s anthology has been adapted many times before, the most notable among them being 1992’s Candyman (aka “The Forbidden”) and The Midnight Meat Train starring Bradley Cooper and Brooke Shields.
With so much that streaming has to offer, movies like Books of Blood sometimes to fly under the radar. However, considering its built-in fan base and genuinely creepy jump-scares, the film will likely hit that sweet spot for horror fans. We’ve got the lowdown on everything you need to know about the film, including its release date, plot, cast, and trailer.
