‘Freakish’ Trailer: Social Media Stars Fight Off Mutant Predators in New Hulu Horror Series

Surviving high school may be the death of them.



No one said surviving high school was easy, at least not for the students in Hulu’s upcoming horror series, “Freakish.”

After a mysterious chemical plant explosion brings predatory mutants to a small town, a group of teens must fight for their survival when the creatures start to take over. Forced to hide out in the hallways of their local school, it’s a fight to the death as they battle an unknown illness that spreads, a shortage of food and water and random attacks by the freaky creatures.
