HBO Max Adding 18 New Horror Movies For February


With Warner Bros.’ recent decision to launch its entire 2021 release slate at the same time as they arrive in theatres via HBO Max, it’s safe to say that the up-and-coming streaming platform is one to keep a keen eye on. Yes, with the competition continually ebbing and flowing between Amazon Prime, Netflix and other industry giants, HBO Max’s unprecedented move will undoubtedly mark a seismic shift in the modern day streaming wars.

Thankfully, though, subscribers won’t have to wait too long before receiving a new round of fresh content, especially if you’re in the mood for some spine-chilling horror pics. Indeed, eighteen new spooky movies are scheduled to drop this February, and while they’re mostly vintage classics, there’s bound to be something creepy on the list that’ll help keep you entertained during these long, dark nights, as you can see below:

  • The Apparition
  • The Goonies
  • Blade Runner: The Final Cut
  • Ghoulies II
  • Ghoulies
  • Jacob’s Ladder (1990)
  • Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
  • The Last Exorcism
  • Monkey Shines
  • My Bloody Valentine 3D
  • Outbreak
  • Saw II: Director’s Cut
  • Saw III: Director’s Cut
  • Saw IV: Director’s Cut
  • Saw V: Director’s Cut
  • Saw VI: Director’s Cut
  • Saw: Extended Version

All the films above are scheduled to hit HBO Max on the first day of the month, and, as you can see, there are a wide variety of nail-biting scares on offer here. From the hardcore escape-the-room traps of Jigsaw in the popular Saw series, to the eerie supernatural thrills of The Last Exorcism and The Apparition, to more family-friendly fare like Richard Donner’s beloved coming-of-age adventure The Goonies, there’s likely to be something on this list that’ll scratch that ol’ horror itch.
