Only time can tell what will turn a regular old blockbuster hit into a timeless classic, built to withstand the test of many decades. Some movies that set out to be "classics" quickly flopped, while other, lesser-known features quietly sneaked under the radar and became classics over time. The best classic movies on Hulu are great no matter how many years have passed since their release, or how many times you've watched them. 

What are some of the best classic movies streaming on Hulu? For starters, you can try out the classic horror flick Friday the 13th, as well as The Hills Have Eyes for that matter. Classic cartoon films are also available, such as Snoopy, Come Home and The Cat in the Hat. If those aren't your style, perhaps you'll like From Russia with Love, or even The Untouchables. Whatever type of classic movies you like, there's surely something for you on Hulu.
