Let's get spooky, folks, because we've compiled for you a list (in order of scariness) of movies coming to Max in October 2023 to enhance your Halloween experience!
7. Kate & Leopold (2001)
Our list begins with a not-at-all-scary release on Max, but it's still brimming with a mystical atmosphere. The story follows the blossoming love between the young Duke of Albany (Hugh Jackman), transported from the 19th to the 21st century, and an ambitious market researcher (Meg Ryan).
6. Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
The next movie is also not a typical Halloween pick, but its dark dystopian ambiance and existential questions about the boundaries of humanity make it a compelling choice for this spooky season.
5. Beetlejuice (1988)
Spooky doesn't necessarily mean unfunny! For many, one of Tim Burton's earliest horror films is a Halloween tradition. The plot follows an eccentric 'bio-exorcist' from the Netherworld who assists a pair of ghosts in evicting the new owners of their home.
4. Wes Craven's Scream Trilogy (1996-2000)
Although sometimes humorous, the first three installments of Wes Craven's slasher films not only redefined classic horror tropes but also expertly constructed a suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat atmosphere.
3. Friday the 13th (2009)
Despite being critically panned at the time, this reinterpretation of the famous franchise has since gained a cult following that appreciates not only the all-star cast but also the unique portrayal of Jason Voorhees.
2. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
While this remake of the classic 1974 original about Leatherface may not be as profound or terrifying as the original film, it still offers plenty of gore and style for fans of the genre.
1. Trick 'r Treat (2007)
Trick 'r Treat is a horror anthology that follows various individuals who have violated Halloween traditions and are confronted by a mysterious trick-or-treating demon. The segments range from comedic horror tales to truly scary R-rated experiences, promising a great Halloween spectacle.
