It’s Halloween season, and this year Hulu is holding Huluween
Hulu deserves credit for the merging of its name with the season, but even more credit for what it’s done in terms of content.
First off you can go to the Huluween section of its website. Yes, it’s a marketing hook to some promotional material for various show, but it is joining in the fun. What if you don’t have access to Hulu? Here’s where they score points as they’ve made a selection of free short horror stories available on YouTube.
