HBO GOHappy Halloween! Trick-or-Treaters will be hitting the pavement tonight, and if you are stuck at home handing out candy, why not put a classic “Horror Movie” on and enjoy a night in. HBO Go is part of the premium cable network that initially rolled out a browser-based version of its HBO Go service in early 2010. Since then, HBO Go has expanded the amount of content available through the service. This service includes every episode of every HBO original series. It has also even expanded the availability of the service, extending to mobile apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Just in time for Halloween, HBO Go has bundled up a selection of classic Horror films. Here are a few of the options you can choose from:
  • ‘The Amityville Horror’: This chilling 1979 tale based on the best-selling book remains a frightening thrill ride. James Brolin and Margot Kidder star as George and Kathleen Lutz, who movie into their long Island dream house and find themselves living a nightmare.
  • ‘The Book of Eli’: This story is about a post-Apocalyptic world populated by roving gangs of criminals and cannibals; a lone drifter protects the last hope for mankind: a Bible. Denzel Washington stars as the mysterious Eli whose copy of the holy book makes him a target of evil desert-town madman Gary Oldman who has his own twisted agenda.
  • ‘Cocoon’: Friendly aliens from a distant galaxy rev up the lives of some golden-agers in this charming fantasy. When three Florida retirees sneak off for a dip in a pool and come out rejuvenated, they think they many have discovered a fountain of youth.
  • ‘The Frighteners’: Down on his luck ghost buster Michael J. Fox must put his spiritual powers to good use when a malevolent poltergeist comes to town in Peter Jackson’s fright filled spookiest. With the help of his pals, the quirky investigator races to stop the evil force that is dealing out heart attacks all over their seemingly cursed community.
