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

Because it really does hold up: Robocop (1987)

It’s funny how, if you haven’t seen it in a long time, Robocop just looks like another exercise in ’80s action-movie excess. That’s a testament to how sharp its criticisms are and how biting its satire is: Robocop is a condemnation of excess: in corporate overreach, economic largesse, sensational media, and capitalism taken to its logical end. Robocop is the action movie that saw the future, even as it showed it to us in the bloody death and rebirth of beat cop Alex Murphy. It’s stunning how relevant it is today, and uncomfortable how close to home its barbs still hit. Arrives September 1.

If you like white-knuckle thrillers: I Saw the Devil

I Saw the Devil starts where most revenge films end: after a woman is brutally murdered by a deranged man, her fiancé, Korean National Intelligence Service agent Kim Soo-hyun, vows revenge. Instead of killing or arresting him, though, Kim plants a tracker on him, and vows to haunt his fiancée’s killer and torment him for every further crime he tries to commit. What results is a thrilling and disturbing twist on the cat-and-mouse game you won’t soon forget. Available September 27.

For a one-of-a-kind vampire movie: Let the Right One In

Hollywood has sort of shied away from vampires and that’s kind of a shame. After the YA-fueled late-aughts peak of dreamboat vampires, few films have bothered approaching them, even as they remained ripe for reinvention. Let the Right One In was proof of this opportunity: The 2008 Swedish film based on the novel of the same name tells the story of Oskar, a lonely, bullied boy in 1980s Stockholm, who befriends Eli, a lonely girl who is secretly a vampire. Equal parts chilling, warm, and thematically rich, Let the Right One In achieves much in its restraint, including carefully orchestrated moments of horror. Arrives September 9.
