Top 5 Horror TV Shows Running on Hulu

Published

on

Horror is not everyone’s cup of tea. Along with interest, one is going to need a whole lot of guts. Horror movies were a thing, but there is an entirely new pile of horror shows after the TV series’ emergence. Hulu is home to some of the best horror shows. You can binge-watch these scary shows all at the same streaming platform.

American Horror Story

One of the most popular horror TV shows is the American Horror Story. The show has multiple anthologies and is successfully running for nine years now. There are a total of 103 episodes to this date, with actual events inspiring most of the stories. The best part of the show is that no season connects with the other. One can watch any season anytime.

Castle Rock

One of the other shows on the list which is becoming an anthology is Castle Rock. Stephen King loosely inspires the setting and characters of the show. Season one of the show takes place in Maine, which is the imaginary town of Castle Rock. The show consists of a total of 20 episodes, with each episode carrying a different storyline altogether. The only thing in common with all the episodes and characters is their setting and inspiration. After a successful season one, the show has come out with a second season.

The Terror

Dan Simmons is the writer of the book with the same name adapting this TV show. The story goes back to 1845 when Captain Sir John Franklin goes on an expedition to the artic. Due to the frozen waters and low temperatures in the artic, ships are stuck during the journey. Now all the passengers on board have to survive before reaching their destination. The show has only one season airing but is soon coming out with a second part. The second part is about the Japanese-American community in World War II.

The Twilight Zone

Rod Sterling is the creator of this anthology television horror series. The show is popular due to the variety it offers from black comedy, psychological thriller, fantasy, absurdism to science fiction, dystopian fiction, suspense, and even supernatural drama. Most of the episodes end on a moral note, which is something unique for horror shows. The Twilight zone’s first premiere was in 1959, and the complete first season, shot in black and white, is still a success. It has a total of four series with varying seasons and multiple episodes. The latest one streaming on Hulu has two seasons and 20 episodes.

The Strain

This horror show is the perfect blend of old-fashioned fear of vampirism with the modern global pandemic. The story starts with all the passengers of a flight mysteriously dead. Concerned authorities ask Dr. Ephraim Goodweather of New York to investigate the death of the passengers. His team identifies a strain of viral infection in the dead people, causing havoc globally. The Strain has ties to traditional vampirism, and the story follows from there. The show has a total of four seasons with 46 episodes.

Horror shows are a rage at the moment. The genre itself is a very interesting topic for people today, and if you are someone who enjoys horror, you will undoubtedly enjoy watching these series mentioned above.

Video shows police officer rolling bike over man’s head at Breonna Taylor protest

A viral video shows a Seattle police officer rolling his bike over a person‘s head during protests for Breonna Taylor on Wednesday. 

The video was taken by journalist CJ Halliburton on Facebook Live, according to BuzzFeed News.

A clip of the stream is being reposted on multiple platforms.

Another original video of the incident was posted to Twitter by Joey Wieser Thursday. His clip starts with a fleet of cops walking and riding their bikes through the street, while Wieser, who is recording from the sidelines, narrates: “They’re advancing on the line here.”

A person in white clothing is seen lying in the road as the officers advance toward the protesters. It is unclear why the person was on the road; some outlets are reporting he may have been injured or fell.

“This person is on the ground,” Wieser says. 

While most officers cycle and walk their bikes past the man on the ground, one officer rolls both tires over the man’s head and neck.  

“He just ran over his head!” Wieser says. “He just ran over his head!”

“Oh my god, oh my god,” Wieser says. “I hope you all saw that. That officer ran over the man’s head with their bicycle wheel. Jesus Christ!” 

A few officers are seen stopping, although, it’s not clear if they stopped because of the incident. 

BuzzFeed News reports the Seattle Office of Police Accountability is now asking for a criminal investigation to be conducted by an outside law enforcement agency, into the officer’s actions. In a statement, the Seattle Police Department acknowledged the video and said that it would be investigated by the Office of Police Accountability.

In a statement announcing it launched an investigation, the Office of Police Accountability said it “has received over 30 complaints concerning this incident.”

‘Magic Mike’ Is Leaving Netflix In October, So Watch Channing Tatum While You Can

Published

Once upon a time in 2012, the world was graced with one of the greatest gifts imaginable: a movie about male strippers starring Channing Tatum. Whether you saw Magic Mike in theaters and felt some kinda way as you munched on your Milk Duds, or you didn’t fully appreciate the flick until years later, it doesn’t matter. The film is straight up art. And while the movie deserves to be preserved in a time capsule so future Martians can watch it, there’s a snag: Magic Mike is leaving Netflix in October, so it’s time to sear the sexiness into your memory for good.

When the movie was first released, fans were lowkey shocked. (The eroticism! The choreography! The abs!) After everyone’s pulse returned to a normal pace, it was clear the the film was not only scorchingly hot, but it also had a pretty interesting storyline as well.

In case you need a refresher (or you were too distracted by the dance moves to follow the plot), the movie is about Mike (Tatum), a male stripper who takes newbie Adam (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing to teach him the ins and outs of stripping. Tatum is the star performer at Xquisite Strip Club, a fictional Tampa-based club owned by Dallas (Matthew McConaughey). Naturally, there’s sex, drugs, and drama, but the biggest draw is the dance numbers and Tatum’s impressive moves.

The real kicker is that not only is Tatum actually performing all the moves and stunts, but the film is actually based on his own life. Before becoming one of the most beloved celebs in Hollywood, Tatum worked as a stripper in Tampa, just like his character in the film.

Between Tatum’s hotness, astounding stage presence, and fascinating backstory, it makes sense the movie would be a big success and merit not only a sequel (Magic Mike XXL), but also a live show in Las Vegas as well. Though the film is leaving Netflix on Oct. 31 (talk about scary), you’ll still be able to rent it on Amazon Prime if you suddenly have a hankering for watching dudes get down on a dance floor (you can also rent the sequel there too).

You have until Halloween to watch Tatum grind, so get your fill before Magic Mike leaves Netflix for good.
