At the beginning of (and during) every month, Hulu adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Below, you’ll find our recommendations for October 2017. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Hulu and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

This Month’s Highlights

Available October 28

If you’re feeling those Blade Runner 2049 vibes: Arrival

Denis Villeneuve’s last film before Blade Runner 2049 is another movie that you might remember for having a pretty substantial twist, but it’s also a movie that pulls off the rare feat of having a twist that makes the movie better once you know it. With that in mind, it’s a good opportunity to watch Arrival if you haven’t seen it since it came out (or if you haven’t seen it at all), which is the furthest thing from a chore imaginable. Arrival is a gorgeous, meticulous, absorbing film, the sort that, like Sicario before it, dazzles in its complete and utter competence. Available October 28.

Available October 4

Because it’s one of the year’s best surprises: Colossal

You should really see Colossal cold, as it’s built around a premise that’s tremendously fun to see play out without any foreknowledge. But even if you know Colossal’s premise and haven’t seen it yet, the movie still has plenty of surprises, ostensibly about one thing and then slyly revealing itself to be about something else entirely. Colossal is a terrific delight of a movie, one you should take some time to enjoy as we dive into the fall’s prestige fare. Available October 4.

Because it’s Halloween, man: Halloween H2O

You should definitely watch a horror movie this month, and Hulu’s got a lot to choose from: Most are schlocky gore fests, but a few nostalgic hits are there too. Among them, the one most worth revisiting might be Halloween H20. Admittedly, it’ll probably catch your eye due to the recent news that Jamie Lee Curtis will return to the franchise next year — so why not take the time to appreciate the first time she reprised the role? As far as long-running horror franchises go, H20 isn’t that bad a ride. Available October 1.
