HBO NOW is your destination for a scary good line-up of horror movies this Halloween season. From classic thrills to recent frights, there are horror films galore to keep you on the edge of your seat all October long. We break down a couple of our favorites from this year’s Halloween selection.
Looking for something that celebrates East Asian and Southeast Asian horror cinema? HBO’s anthology series “Folklore” may be up your alley this Halloween season. “Folklore“, an anthology series that brings to life different creatures from various East and Southeast Asian cultures with mostly entertaining results. This series at its core serves as an introduction of these monsters to Westerners across the globe but also showcases a distinct humanity that helps ground these sometimes immensely unbelievable monsters into reality.
You want something entertaining, horrific and silly? Happy Death Day and Happy Death Day 2U are highly recommended picks. Happy Death Day follows a self-absorbed college student named Tree, who learns through a series of Groundhog’s Day-style of events how to become a better person while also figuring out who is trying to kill her. The follow-up film follows Tree, but her friends become involved with the time loop, which causes a whole new array of issues as they try to figure out who or what’s trying to kill them again.
