Hulu Drops Spooky Trailer For ‘Monsterland’ Anthology

Hulu looks to dive head-first into this Halloween season and make a big splash with its Oct. 2 debut of the horror anthology Monsterland.

The eight-episode series–based on Nathan Ballingrud’s 2013 short story collection North American Lake Monsters–is the brainchild of creator/writer/executive producer Mary Laws, as reported by And, as a tantalizing tease, a trailer (which can be viewed below) has been unveiled to set the stage for the stories to come.

Those stories, according to Hulu, will highlight a series of encounters with such Gothic beasts as fallen angels and werewolves. The tales will deal with “broken people who are driven to desperate acts in an attempt to repair their lives–ultimately showing there is a thin line between man and beast.”

Monsterland–which sports the tagline, “You can’t escape what lives within”–stars Kaitlyn Dever, Charlie Tahan, Jonathan Tucker, Nicole Beharie, Hamish Linklater, Bill Camp, Michael Hsu Rosen, Marquis Rodriguez, Taylor Schilling, Roberta Colindrez, Adria Arjona, Trieu Tran, Kelly Marie Tran, Adepero Oduye and Mike Colter.

The creative folk behind the cameras include executive producers Babak Anvari, Lucan Toh, Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and Ali Krug.
