What's Coming to HBO Max in October 2020? Full List of Releases

Spooky season is officially upon us, and HBO Max is rolling out the red carpet for horror flicks and psychological thrillers ahead of the Halloween holiday.

All throughout the month of October, the scariest of titles will appear on the streaming network, for viewers in need of a good fright. Titles like Gothika, The Haunting and both films in the 2000s The Hills Have Eyes franchise will be available as early as October 1, with plenty more debuting as the month continues.

There are a few less scary titles entering the streaming vortex next month, too. HBO Max will release ease the minds of many with its mesmerizing new docuseries, A World of Calm, and there's the Sundance-winning film Charm City Kings, starring Meek Mill and Jahi Di'Allo Winston.
