Halloween is going to get a lot “Sp-HOOQ-ier” this year as HOOQ HANGOUTS treats kids of all ages to the biggest outdoor cinema event this Friday, October 21, 2016 starting at 3:00pm at the Bonifacio Global City Ampitheater.
This month, HOOQ pulls out one animated classic from its giant cauldron of child-friendly titles that captures the mood of the scary season.
It’s a Halloween night and all the kids are busy preparing their costumes for a night of trick-or-treating, but what if you live in a neighborhood where the scariest thing are not the ghosts and monsters but the house that eats trespassers.
Are you ready to enter the MONSTER HOUSE?
D.J. Walters has a particularly overactive imagination–even for a 12-year old on Hallow’s Eve. He is convinced that his haggard and crabby neighbor Horace Nebbercracker, who terrorizes all the neighborhood kids, is responsible for Mrs. Nebbercracker’s mysterious disappearance. Add to that, any toy that touches Nebbercracker’s property, promptly disappears, swallowed up by the cavernous house in which Horace lives.
D.J. has seen it with his own eyes! But no one believes him, not even his best friend, Chowder. What everyone does not know is D.J. is not imagining things. Everything he’s seen is absolutely true and it’s about to get much worse than anything D.J could have imagined!
Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 79th Academy Awards, MONSTER HOUSE reunites Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg—since Back to the Future Part III and the first time the legendary Hollywood icons both served as executive producers of a film.
“Halloween is an exciting time to be kid, with all the costumes and the free candy, so for this month, HOOQ Hangouts is bringing the all the treats to them. It’s also a great way to showcase the kind of kid friendly content we have at HOOQ”, says Jane Cruz-Walker, Country Manager of HOOQ Philippines.
“And with our new mobile app interface, #KidsOnHOOQ can easily find family-friendly movies such as the full Harry Potter library, Ella Enchanted, Where the Wild Things Are, and Dolphin Tale. And stay tuned during this HOOQ Hangouts we reveal a whole new set of content partners and additions to our kids catalog.”
Kids in costume will receive FREE Halloween treats and get the chance to win special prizes – like Best in Sp-HOOQ-y Costume!
HOOQ Hangouts in cooperation with Samsung will regularly showcase blockbusters and all-time favorites through several massive LED screens at the Globe Iconic Entertainment Zone, transforming the BGC Amphitheater into a free outdoor cinema venue. Viewers can use beanbags, blankets and cushions to enjoy the featured shows, participate in on-ground games and entertainment and munch on snacks from partner food concessionaires.
