Say what you will, humanity is obsessed with crime. Some like to perpetuate it, while most keep a lid on their inner demons and satisfy their curiosities by hearing, watching or reading about others’ acts. Fact or fiction, crime stories almost always sell, and the gruesome the crime, the better interested the audience is. It presents us with the various possibilities in which humans can use their creativity to evolve, or in better words, devolve into monsters.

With that said, here’s the list of really good crime movies on Hulu that are available to stream right now:
