Hulu Originals Bad Hair, Helstrom, and Monsterland all arrive on the streamer this month.

Bad Hair is a horror satire set in 1989 that follows a young woman that gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television.  Things take a turn when she discovers that hair might literally have a mind of its own.

This month you can also catch Snakes on a Plane, Superbad, and Spaceballs on the streamer. And if you have that Showtime add-on, the final season of Homeland arrives at the end of the month.
