iTunes Celebrates Halloween With Horror Movie Sale of $5 Classics and $10 Modern Films

Apple this week has launched a new Halloween-themed movie sale on iTunes, discounting 18 mostly classic films to just $4.99 and 34 modern horror films to $9.99 and under, all in HD. Prices for most of the movies when not on sale are about $14.99, saving you between $5 and $10 depending on which collection you purchase from.

iTunes is calling its $4.99 sale “Horror Through the Years,” and it focuses on movies from previous decades including Child’s Play, The Fly, and 28 Days Later. There are more recent films, however, like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the reboot of Poltergeist.


This collection also features new artwork by artist/illustrator Orlando Arocena. Arocena’s art originally debuted last month in the form of Blu-Ray covers by Twentieth Century Fox and MGM Home Entertainment, as a way to re-release the classic horror films in celebration of Halloween.

Here are a few movies in the “Horror Through the Years” collection, all priced at $4.99:

  • Child’s Play
  • Killer Klowns from Outer Space
  • Black Swan
  • The Fly (1986)
  • Jeepers Creepers
  • Joy Ride

The “Modern Horror” sale has a collection of films on sale for $9.99 and under, with most having come out within the last few years.


Here’s a list of a few of the movies Apple has marked down in this section:

  • It Comes At Night – $9.99
  • Trick ‘R Treat (2008) – $9.99
  • The Witch – $9.99
  • Green Room – $9.99
  • You’re Next – $7.99
  • It Follows – $7.99

Outside of these specific collections, Apple has also discounted Little Shop of Horrors to $7.99 in HD. If you’re looking to rent a horror film instead of purchasing one to add to your iTunes movie collection, this week’s Movie of the Week is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), making a rental just $0.99. The two new collections and other notable horror discounts can be found on the home page of iTunes Movies, both on desktop and iOS.

Also of note today is a special offer running at Best Buy, where you can get 25 percent off three or more select cell phone accessories each priced at $9.99 or above.
