On Wednesday, Hulu debuts the original thriller “Books of Blood”, a journey into uncharted and forbidden territory through three Clive Barker tales entwined in space and time. The 1980s-vintage collection takes terror to a whole new level.

In a more recognizable universe, Mouse (Di’Allo Winston) desperately wants to join The Midnight Clique, a gang of Baltimore dirt bike riders who rule the summer streets, in “Charm City Kings”, which debuts on HBO Max on Thursday. The movie won the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Prize for Ensemble Acting at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
