HBO Max Announces Interactive ‘House of Halloween’ Spotlight Page

HBO Max launched its “House of Halloween” spotlight page on Saturday, October 1, bringing an interactive Halloween experience to fans all month long. Recognizing that Halloween goes beyond the horror genre, this spotlight page will offer frights for all ages, costume ideas, animated episodes, and more.


Last year, HBO Max had three doors to celebrate the season, labeled “Not Scary,” “Scary,” and “Very Scary,” which suggested a title to stream based on the door that was chosen. This year, the “House of Halloween” will feature an interactive tarot card element to help fans pick their next title to stream. Fans can click on one of the tarot cards on screen, which will then lead to a recommended title based on the card. The tarot cards include:

  • The Fool reveals a surprise curated title related to horror comedies
  • The Magician reveals a surprise curated title related to fantasy/magic
  • The Devil reveals a surprise curated title related to demons/possessions
  • The Executioner reveals a surprise curated title related to slashers
  • The Lovers reveals a surprise curated title related to romance-related titles
  • The Creature reveals to a surprise curated title related to creature features

In addition to the tarot-based recommendations, fans can also enjoy curated collections including Spirit of the Season, Family-Friendly Frights, Scoobtober, Very Scary, Costume Ideas, and more. Select Halloween episodes from series including South Park, Looney Tunes, The Middle, and Courage The Cowardly Dog will also be featured in the collections.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
