Goodbye DVDs! Hello Huluween!

Today marked the end of an era for me. I sent back my last Netflix disc (Captain America) and am now going disc-less. Between my personal movie collection, instant Netflix, and Hulu Plus, I have more to watch than I can possibly keep up with.

For a whopping $16, I get all of Netflix’s streaming of movies and previous seasons shows PLUS Hulu’s current shows. How much is your cable bill? Ours was more than three times that and we got a lot less use out of it. Does the instant Netflix/Hulu Plus combo get me everything I want to watch? No – I do miss premium content like Dexter, Game of Thrones, and True Blood but as I mentioned I get way more than I can possibly watch.

Which brings us to the cleverly named Huluween. If the massive list of Netflix horror movies doesn’t fit your bill for Halloween, check out some of Hulu’s offerings. Hulu is free and can be watched on the computer. Hulu Plus is $7.99 a month and allows most of its offerings to be watched on the TV via game console or Roku box.

For Halloween, Hulu has Halloween (1978) as well as Halloween 4 and 5 – none of which are currently available on instant Netflix. They also have Silent Hill, one of my favorite guilty pleasures Horror Express and the premiere of the American Horror Story TV show.
