HBO Now and HBO Go have some kicka** titles in their movie category, so it only makes sense that their horror selection would also be on point. The streaming service may not boast the sheer volume of terror you can find over on Netflix, but it’s the quality of the chills and thrills that matters here. Classics about demonic children and serial killers with cannibalistic appetites, ’80s vampire cult flicks, and Rob Zombie’s unique eye for bloody horror. There’s a little something for every fanatic of the genre over at HBO, and it’s all good.
Here are the best horror movies on HBO Now and HBO Go guaranteed to give you nightmares.
The Lost Boys (1987)
Run Time: 87 min | IMDb: 7.3/10
Corey Haim and Kiefer Sutherland star in this ’80s vampire romp about two brothers who move to California and encounter a violent gang of bloodsuckers. It’s a cult favorite for a reason: There’s plenty of gore, over-the-top ’80s fashion, and ridiculousness (at one point, the guys battle vampires with water guns filled with holy water), but Sutherland is wickedly good at playing the film’s big bad, and the movie manages to reign in some of the theatrics long enough to give all of us a good scare and a shocking twist at the end.
