This Halloween, you can create the midnight movie experience at home with access to Kino Cult‘s free streaming ad-supported channel. This streaming channel will offer hundreds of new and rare, theatrically released cult hits for genre fans, all in HD!

Kino Lorber has partnered with Giant Pictures to launch this unique service aimed at genre fans of horror and cult films. These titles include a curated compendium of theatrically released movies, all in high definition. Expect new titles to be added monthly.

When does Kino Cult release?

Kino Cult launches widely in the United States and Canada starting on Friday, October 1, 2021, across mobile devices, web, and connected TVs, with VOD apps on major devices like Android, iOS, Google TV, Amazon Fire, Roku and Apple TV.

Later this year, Kino Cult will also launch a linear channel experience with free ad-supported programming running 24/7 across multiple streaming devices.

The great thing about this service is the vast array of movies that will be available at launch. From unapologetically weird genre films to recent arthouse flicks to high-quality restorations of notorious grindhouse gems, there is something for everyone offered on the channel.
