Is there a better way to welcome a new year than by watching a horror movie? Even if it’s not a new release, I love re-watching my favorite horror movies! And when it comes to movies, HBO Max has the best and biggest features available to stream. Which HBO Max horror movies will you be able to check out this coming month?

HBO Max, like many other streaming platforms, removes and adds new movies (and shows) often. So you may notice a movie on our list that was previously streaming there. And if you also want to know about other horror movies (not on HBO Max) that are coming in 2023, we’ve got you covered HERE.

HBO Max horror movies and shows to stream (January 2023)

  • Hereditary, Jan. 1
  • Child’s Play (2019), Jan. 1
  • Vendetta (2022), Jan. 1
  • The Menu, Jan. 3

Hereditary is coming back to its rightful home. Now, I’ve watched this month a few times, and it’s still as frightening and shocking as the first time. The Chucky movie is not the original, but the 2019 remake starring Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, and Mark Hamill.

Vendetta may not be a horror movie, exactly, but it is an action-thriller revenge worth watching! It stars Theo Rossi, Mike Tyson, and Bruce Willis. The story follows William Duncan (Clive Standen), a former marine who seeks revenge for the death of his daughter.

Finally, we have The Menu, a horror movie that is a lot of fun for several reasons. For starters, it’s not just a horror movie, but a dark comedy, as well. The Menu stars Nicholas Hoult, Anya Taylor-Joy, and many others. The story follows a celebrity chef who plans to murder his guests.

Need more horror from HBO Max? The streaming platform is home to The Conjuring universe, including Annabelle. Which horror movie will you be watching on HBO Max this month?
