Pegged to honor the season of the witch, Struum, the groundbreaking streaming platform that aggregates a vast library of thousands of shows and movies from over sixty services with one monthly subscription, has programmed a content jukebox with a hundred classic horror movies starting October 1st! Frightening films burst forth from Struum like bugs from a bloated corpse, blood from a staked vampire, and caustic purple goo from a disemboweled alien—wherever their bowels are.
What better way to start fall than by cozying up in your home, alone in the dark, with a great horror film? Struum is serving up scares like no one else can, with the deepest bench of horror movies online—from well-known classics like HALLOWEEN, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, and the original HOUSE OF HAUNTED HILL to more cult favorites like the V/H/S series, from light to impossibly dark. Struum’s sinister selection represents an embarrassment of riches, 100 films spanning 100 years. From Norway’s spectacular silent-era 1920 chef d’oeuvre and cautionary tale THE PHANTOM CARRIAGE (filmed in 1920) to last year’s DEVIL’S NIGHT: DAWN OF THE NAIN ROUGE, Struum offers horror movies across all subgenres: classics, supernatural, monster horrors, slash and gore, “smart horror,” and much more, from content partners Magnolia Selects, ConTV, Indieflix, Tribeca and Filmbox and more. The list of films is truly frightening!
