You Can Now Stream Over 120 Horror Movies On HBO Max

Robert Englund in A Nightmare on Elm Street

HBO Max launched on May 27th and has been off to a pretty good start with well over 10,000 hours worth of content on the service from day one. If you’re a horror fan, you may be excited to hear that a fairly decent portion of those 10,000 hours include some of the biggest and most popular horror films of all time. So, if you haven’t subscribed yet, now might just be the time to do so.

Do you like Steven Spielberg and massive sharks eating people? If so, you’ll be delighted to hear that you can catch the entire Jaws franchise – which spans four films – on HBO Max right away. If you haven’t ever seen them, now’s a great opportunity to take a trip back in time to catch up on what was arguably the very first blockbuster movie series.

The majority of the Aliens films are also on the service with a few notable exceptions. Still, even without a handful of the newer movies making the cut, there are enough of them available to get you caught up on the series if you’ve never seen it. If you have, then you’re probably going to watch them anyways because they’re just that damn good.

A Nightmare on Elm Street fans will be excited to find that the entire franchise is available for streaming, too. This includes all of the mainline films from the 80s and 90s, off-shoot Freddy vs Jason, and even the 2010 remake of the original. Whether you’re a lifelong fan or a newcomer to the story, this is one of horror’s most iconic series, so having the entire collection at your fingertips is pretty awesome.

You may note that there are a few entries above that you wouldn’t normally classify as horror, but you’d be surprised at how loose the term actually is for some services. Either way, you may need something like Scooby Doo or the comical parodies of Scary Movie 3 to calm you down after an unnerving experience like Us or Hostel.

HBO Max costs $14.99 a month and is available now.
