Mother is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list Pretty Good WTF Horror Movies On Hulu

Darren Aronofsky's mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a nameless couple struggling with strange guests in their home. The movie is largely allegorical, and many of the scenes and stories are biblical in nature. It's dark, intense, and confusing, and that's what makes it so great.

If you like your movies to be straightforward and clear, mother! probably isn't for you. If you're open to some interpretation and want to spend the next couple of days analyzing WTF you just watched, then this might be worth it. 

Actors: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, Ed Harris, + more

Released: 2017

Directed by: Darren Aronofsky

Annihilation is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list Pretty Good WTF Horror Movies On Hulu

Annihilation, based on the book of the same name, is one of the most surreal and disturbing entries into the sci-fi/horror genre this decade. When a mysterious Shimmer appears in the Southeast United States, a team of scientists is sent inside to observe the disturbing effects the Shimmer is having on the area.

Natalie Portman stars as an ex-military survivalist whose husband has been changed by the Shimmer, and she is on a mission to find out why. The movie is filled with body horror, monstrous creatures, and a looming sense of doom that is completely inescapable. There's also a sense of beauty and curiosity in the otherness of the Shimmer, and few movies have managed to make horror as intriguing as Annihilation

Actors: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, + more

Released: 2018

Directed by: Alex Garland

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale challenges the social concept of Jolly Ol' Saint Nick. The film follows a team of British researchers as they excavate a mountaintop in Finland that is rumored to be the origin place of the Santa Claus myth. The team quickly discovers a burial mound that appears to be a prison on the mountain, and they inadvertently release hell upon the locals.

Cannibal elves, a horned Santa Claus, and reindeer slayings are just some of the twisted things viewers can expect from this movie. 

Actors: Tommi Korpela, Per Christian Ellefsen, Jorma Tommila, Risto Salmi, Peeter Jakobi, + more

Released: 2010

Directed by: Jalmari Helander
