The best 7 horror series from the HBO Max catalog


Here are some of the best HBO Max horror series.

The success of horror series or movies has always fascinated me. I couldn’t understand how many people spend their time watching productions that are simply going to harm them (mental damage, not physical), but that was until I started to like some productions of this style. I got this thanks to a certain series that we can find on HBO Max, and simply put, it’s a relatively easy way to get into the genre, since does not have a very marked terror.

For this reason, and because of the large number of series of this genre that we can find in the HBO Max catalogue, below we bring you our list of HBO Max’s best horror series.

The best HBO Max horror series

You will have been able to deduce this thanks to the introduction, but it is necessary to mention that some series that you will see next do not focus on horror, but all have some component of this genre, so they are considered part of the horror genre. Likewise, it is necessary to warn that almost all these series are all indicated for adults, so It is not a good idea to see them as a family.

  • Return
  • Folklore
  • 30 coins
  • lovecraft country
  • Waite Chapel

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is the pinnacle of the zombie genre.

Let’s start with the series that I was referring to earlier when I spoke of “a series that can introduce you well to terror”, and that is that as a good zombie series, The Walking Dead has terror, but it does not make it its main genre . This makes this series the right one for those people who want to start in the genre and who do not tolerate terror very well.

Beyond this, I will tell you that we are facing a series that redefined what a zombie series isAnd it has been around for a very long time. If you have not seen it yet, I recommend it 100%, since we are also facing one of the best HBO Max series, in general.

  • Year: 2010
  • Seasons: 10
  • Chapters: 153
  • Average duration: 60 minutes


With this series we move away a little from the American lands to talk about a production of a country that is much closer to us. Specifically, we are talking about a French series, which wonderfully mixes suspense and terror, although I am telling you right now that it is not “jumpscare” type terror, but rather makes you afraid of the unknown, of what you can not see. This is his objective, and from now on I tell you that he does it wonderfully.

  • Year: 2012
  • Seasons: two
  • Chapters: sixteen
  • Average duration: 52 minutes


First of all I tell you that if you like Asian folklore, this is your favorite series. Now going into a little more detail, we find ourselves before a production in which each chapter is directed by a different directorbut all of them from the Asian continent. The only thing that all these directors have in common is that they used the mythology of their area to bring to life some very interesting chapters in most cases.

Logically, since each episode is directed by a different person, there are some episodes that are very good, and others that don’t reach the level, but I’m telling you that it’s worth waiting to see the good episodes, because some of these are impressions.

  • Year: 2018
  • Seasons: two
  • Chapters: 12
  • Average duration: 50 minutes

30 coins

Now we do come closer than ever to talk about one of the best Spanish series on HBO Max, as well as one of the best exclusive series on this platform. I will only tell you that he has earned both achievements for himself, being a series with an interesting plot, and that he also manages to solve it well. If you like horror and suspense series, this is a great option.

  • Year: 2020
  • Seasons: one
  • Chapters: 8
  • Average duration: 60 minutes

lovecraft country

We now continue with one of the best series of suspense and intrigue on HBO Max, in addition to one of the series on the list with the best setting, and it could not be for less if we talk about Lovecraft. I don’t want to burst the surprise, so I’ll just tell you that if you liked Bloodborne because of its setting, It is very likely that you will like this series.

  • Year: 2020
  • Seasons: one
  • Chapters: 10
  • Average duration: 60 minutes

Waite Chapel

Now we are going to see a horror series that has one of the most classic tropes of horror movies, but at the same time manages to be very interesting. Specifically, we are talking about the typical story of a family that moves to an abandoned house, in a seemingly quiet town, but then strange things start to happen, but this case is a bit particular, or at least it personally managed to catch me. It’s not the best on the list, far from it, but if you are a fan of the genre you will enjoy it.

  • Year: 2021
  • Seasons: one
  • Chapters: 10
  • Average duration: 48 minutes

room 104

Now we are facing a tremendously particular series, because unlike the others, this is not a horror series in all its chapters. To be more specific, in each chapter they present you with the story of certain people who stay in this room 104, and of course, not everyone will have the same experiences, but in certain chapters it manages to become a truly horror series. If he’s okay with waiting to completely scare you off, you should give it a try.

  • Year: 2017
  • Seasons: 4
  • Chapters: 48
  • Average duration: 25 minutes
