Halloween programming to curdle the blood – from Videotron

Montréal, October 27, 2014 – The days are growing shorter, the nights chillier, and that can only mean one thing: Halloween is around the corner! This year, Videotron is entering into the spirit of the season once again with Halloween programming on all illico platforms, guaranteed to terrify even the most hardened horror film fans. The best scary flicks, from the classics of the genre to the latest crop, will be available on illico TV, illico Web and illico apps for tablets and mobile phones, as well as on Club illico, where a frightful French selection awaits subscribers.

Families have not been overlooked. A special selection of age-appropriate Halloween-themed movies that won’t give kids nightmares will also be available.

The best horror films from oldies to modern-day classics
Movie buffs with nerves of steel will be able to choose from new releases such as The Purge: Anarchy and The Quiet Ones, or revisit towering classics of horror such as The Shining or The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Videotron’s various platforms. Club illico will also offer the French version of the film Halloween (2007). And those who are ready to experience the dark side will be able to get their fill of Paranormal Activity.

Children’s content just in time for Halloween
illico’s Halloween Films section will serve up children’s favourites such as Frankenweenie, the story of young Victor’s attempts to bring his dog Sparky back to life, and Hotel Transylvania, an inn where the world’s most famous monsters check in to get some R&R away from human civilization. Many other titles, including favourites such as Coraline and Monster High, will also be available to entertain the kids before they go trick-or-treating. For teens, illico will offer classics such as Edward Scissorhands.
