Hulu offers plenty of selection for your night at home on the couch, and it’s offering new and exciting choices for your viewing pleasure. Every month, the service adds and removes numerous new TV shows and movies, and keeping track of what’s coming and going can be challenging. Publications like The A.V. Club do a great job listing every single thing being added and eliminated every month, but even these lists get overwhelming — there are so many options!
Rest easy: Below are three top-notch recommendations of the very best things hitting Hulu in April. Take these choices into account, and you won’t have to wade through seemingly-uncountable options.
The Shining (1980)
Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic will be available on Hulu April 1st. The film is still thrilling and unnerving today, nearly 40 years after its release. Legendary actor Jack Nicholson plays the main character, Jack Torrance, whose mental stability gradually unravels over the course of a brutal winter spent tending to a massive hotel in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately, Torrance’s wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd) are there with him, and they become the subjects of his most violent breaks from reality. If this plotline sounds contrived, that’s because countless horror movies have taken cues from The Shining, which still stands as a masterpiece all these years later.
A Quiet Place (2018)
Anyone who paid any attention to buzzworthy movies last year probably heard a ton about A Quiet Place. The horror film — certainly one of the many to take influence from The Shining — is primarily the work of John Krasinski. While Krasinski is best known for playing Jim Halpert on NBC’s beloved sitcom The Office, the movie is far from funny. Krasinski directed the film, co-wrote the screenplay, and stars as its main character; his wife, Emily Blunt, stars opposite him. Their real-life chemistry bleeds onto the screen as they play a couple who try to keep themselves and their two children alive in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by vicious, blind creatures that can hear just about anything.
The Real Housewives of Potomac, Season 3 (Bravo, 2018)
The eighth location for the wildly successful Real Housewives franchise (there are nine in total) will please anyone enamored with the series’ most prominent editions (i.e. The Real Housewives of New York City). The Real Housewives of Potomac offers viewers a real-life look at the daily ongoings of six wealthy women living in the titular Washington, D.C. suburb. Potomac is, according to CNN Money, the single wealthiest town in the United States, making it a perfect setting for this Andy Cohen-produced series. Since Bravo has yet to confirm the series for a fourth season, watching this third season when it hits Hulu April 1st could prove a great holdover until the next installment of episodes (or if you can’t easily watch RHONY).
