Full Answer

Hulu is primarily known as a TV streaming site, but it also hosts a wide range of streaming movies as well, including a deep selection of horror and suspense films. Users can browse categories such as paranormal, zombies and vampires to find schlocky comical classics as well as newer cult releases and scary documentaries. Hulu offers free SD video streams of its horror movies, but users looking for higher-quality HD must pay membership fees.

Crackle’s partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment means the site gets a range of classic Hollywood horror movies both new and old, from “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” to “The Craft.” In addition to big-budget horror, the site also offers older cult films. Crackle does force users to watch movies with commercial interruptions, but they are limited, only occurring a few times through each film.

Popcornflix is another popular, free streaming site that offers movies through a partnership with Screen Media Ventures. The site’s selection is constantly updating, though the selection tends toward the more obscure. Popcornflix’s sister site Frightpix is a specialty service that offers an even larger selection of free streaming horror movies.
