Cebu Blogging Community members were recently given the privilege to try out Hooq for a month for free. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many awesome movies they have available! 

Here's a list of 8 old favorites I'd personally recommend, these are available for your viewing pleasure on Hooq anytime and anywhere!



The Lost Boys. In this hit '80s hybrid of the horror movie and the teen flick, a single mom and her two sons become involved with a pack of vampires when they move into an offbeat Northern California town. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: This is how I want my vampires to be: dangerous, leather-jacket-wearing, reckless-driving bad boys. Also, this movie is oozing with pure campy goodness!




The Shining. Jack, a writer, takes his wife and son to an isolated hotel in the mountains hoping to cure his writer's block. Psychic visions and secrets from the hotel's haunted past plague the family as Jack begins a slow, murderous descent into madness. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: It takes the haunted house/ghost story to a whole new level! Plus Jack Nicholson's chilling and unforgettable performance is a must-see!



Interview with the Vampire. A reporter interviews Louis who claims to be a 200-year-old vampire. Louis shares his story, beginning in 18th-century New Orleans with his encounters with the charismatic and decadent vampire Lestat. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: I grew up reading Anne Rice and loving her romantic, existentialist vampires. This adaptation is faithful to its source material! Plus Brad Pitt is hot as broody Louis.



Full Metal JacketStanley Kubrick's return to filmmaking after a seven-year hiatus, this film crystallizes the experience of the Vietnam War by concentrating on a group of raw Marine volunteers. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: The ugly face of war rendered in Stanley Kubrick's impeccable, incomparable style.

 

Sin City. Interweaving multiple storylines from the series' history, this violent crime noir paints the picture of the ultimate town without pity through the eyes of its roughest characters. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: Blood, boobs and bondage gear have never looked so fresh and exciting!



Beetlejuice. Recently deceased couple wants to get rid of the quirky family occupying their house. They call on Beetlejuice, a manic bio-exorcist, to handle their problem -- with disastrous results! Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: Old school Tim Burton before he sold his soul to Disney. Also, Lydia Deetz is my soulmate.



Eyes Wide Shut. After learning of his wife's flirtatious behavior, Dr. William Harford goes on a sexual odyssey of his own. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: A dreamlike exploration of marriage, sex and fidelity -- plus kinky secret societies. Also, Stanley Kubrick.



Bram Stoker's Dracula. This film from Francis Ford Coppola and screenwriter James Victor Hart offers a full-blooded portrait of the immortal Transylvanian vampire. Read more on Rotten Tomatoes

Why I love it: This is one of my favorite adaptations of Stoker's done-to-death novel. Also, Dracula is portrayed in gothic perfection by Gary Oldman.
