Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) Hulu in December

Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives
Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

The slate of media getting dumped onto Hulu’s streaming service in December contains some dark gifts. To help horror fans gird their dirty loins for the upcoming Friday The 13th reboot, the entire franchise (or at least the films that actually have “Friday The 13th” in the title) is arriving on December 1. That covers everything from the original 1980 film to 1989’s Friday The 13th Part VIII: Manhattan. Not to be missed is 1986’s Jason Lives, Tom McLoughlin’s laugh-out-loud meta take on the franchise.


Keeping with the theme, piece-of-shit Rob Zombie’s Devil’s Rejects and House of 1,000 Corpses are arriving at the same time, as well as David Cronenberg’s early sex-slug body horror Shivers (a.k.a. They Came From Within). Less genre but equally dark fare is also arriving to mirror the zeitgeist, from Silence Of The Lambs to No Country For Old Men. Apocalypse Now is on the list, too, which is arguably as existentially challenging a watch as All Dogs Go To Heaven (also available 12/1).

Fleeing the country are the Pink Panther films, because who is really in the mood, honestly, and the Kill Bills (though some other Quentin Tarantino arrivals make up for the loss). For anyone who may, for whatever reason, want to reflect on the building and soul of America, Chinatown is also being jettisoned at December’s outset. So if Hulu is your only source of media, watch it now, or forget it.
