HBO Max is launching a “Halloween is Here” hub for the month of October. With the spookiest month of the year upon us, it’s only right that Warner Media makes all that seasonal goodness available for everyone. With stuff from HBO, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, TCM and others, there’s a little bit of something here for everyone. The kids have the Cartoon Network Halloween staples like Over the Garden Wall. Adults can get really scary with Invisible Man and It: Chapter 2. It seems as though each of these companies will be looking for a way to capitalize on the October holiday. With so many people still chilling inside, you can bet the appetite for some thrills will be there among the general users of the app. So, “Halloween is Here” and the people have been ready for it since August 1st.
