From vampires to a traveling cat, HBO has plenty of ways to scare audiences this Halloween.

The original Poltergeist film, written and produced by Steven Spielberg, plus the film’s 2015 remake starring Sam Rockwell, highlight the creepy selection of movies available for streaming on HBO GO and HBO NOW.

If being scared by ghosts isn’t your thing, don’t worry: Horror movies also abound on the HBO platforms, including Stephen King’s Cat’s Eye, Wes Craven Presents: Dracula 2000, Wes Craven Presents: They, Dracula Untold, 28 Days Later, and 28 Weeks Later.

Plus, Will Smith fans can celebrate with a double helping of the Suicide Squad star fighting aliens and vampires in Independence Day and I Am Legend, respectively.
