If you watched American Horror Story, then this spinoff will be right up your alley! This series is an anthology with each episode featuring a different terrifying story. With each episode featuring some of our favorite AHS cast members, these scary stories will for sure keep you up at night.

The Act

Another crime drama series brought to us by Hulu retells the eerie story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and the murder of her mother. Joey King stars as Gypsy and Patricia Arquette won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the controlling and manipulating mother Dee Dee. This is definitely a must see for those who love crime series.

Uncanny Annie

When Jumanji meets Bloody Mary, you get Uncanny Annie. This 2 parter serves as the final episode of the 1st season and first episode of the 2nd season of Hulu’s horror anthology series Into the Dark. It sees a group of friends come together to celebrate Halloween and remember their friend who died a year ago. They find a board game Uncanny Annie and decide to play. Little do they know that this game will be their reality. This horror movie takes you for a scary and intense ride that you don’t want to miss!


Warning: this movie will give you nightmares! Grimcutty is the horrifying story of two kids who bring an internet meme (one that resembles MoMo) to life by the hysteria of their parents. Now it’s up to them to put an end to their horrifying creation. This movie is a must-see for this year, but you have been warned.
