All Halloween Movies on TV: Complete October 2020 Schedule (Updated!)

halloween movies on tv

Looking for every single Halloween movie on TV this October? We’ve absolutely got you covered.

The pumpkin spice lattes are out, the leaves are beginning to fall, and October is around the corner. That means one thing: it’s Halloween time.

People tend to either love Halloween or hate it entirely, and those who love it have their own favorite aspects about it. While some love the silly, prankster side of the holiday or the mountains of candy, many love it for the celebration of all things horror-related that it has become.

You’ve probably already nailed down your nerdy Halloween costume choice by now, and now it’s time to look ahead to the month of October to mark down all of the Halloween movies on TV that you’ll be watching so that you’ll never have to wonder “what Halloween movies are on TV tonight?”. Instead, you’ve already done your homework (or, hell – bookmark this page, as we’ll update it regularly).

Whether you’re looking for the newest addition to the slate of Netflix Halloween movies, what horror movies are being shown on cable television, or where you can watch a marathon of some of your favorite horror TV shows, there are zombies, ghouls, and ghosts aplenty for your viewing pleasure in the month of October.

Between AMC FearFest, ABC Family’s Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween (that’s right – 31 days, not 13 days, this year), Disney Channel’s Monstober, Syfy’s 31 Days of Halloween, and Turner Classic Movie’s October Horror lineup, there are plenty of opportunities to catch your favorite family horror movies on TV, as well as some of the top horror films of all-time.

Here’s all of the Halloween movies on TV tonight and the rest of October 2020, and as more networks release more of their detailed listings, we’ll be updating this post:

Horror Movies on Amazon Video (Prime)

Horror movies amazon prime
A look at the horror movies on Amazon Prime Video.

There are literally hundreds and hundreds of horror movies available for “free” with an Amazon Prime subscription using Amazon Video, and there are even more available for purchase. If you’re looking for another way to stream online horror movies in October, here are just some of the top horror films available include:

  • The Quiet Place
  • The Witch
  • Us
  • The Nun
  • Pet Sematary
  • It
  • Get Out
  • Mother!
  • The Conjuring
  • It Comes at Night

Typically speaking, Amazon is the last place we ever think to stream our movies every night, but when you look at all of the scary films it has in its catalog — many of which are already “free” to watch with an Amazon Prime subscription (which, we have anyway) and the rest are pretty cheap to rent for an evening — Amazon is a pretty solid choice.

Sign up for Amazon Prime Video here.


Shudder

If you’re REALLY planning to spend a lot of your time this October watching horror movies, Shudder is basically a Netflix that only focuses on horror movies. They have more horror titles than any other service, and a month’s pass gets you unlimited access to their entire library for that month. Best of all, it also has rare and cult horror films that you likely wouldn’t find on Netflix or Amazon. You can use it on Roku, Chromecast, iOS, Android, and Apple TV with ease.

Check out what’s available on Shudder here.
