The pumpkin spice lattes are out, the leaves are beginning to fall, and September has slowly crept away. That means one thing: it’s Halloween time.

Halloween movie schedulePeople 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.

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 13 Nights of Halloween, 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.

 AMC FearFest 2017

The details for AMC’s FearFest 2017 are starting to come out now, thanks to an exclusive over at Bloody Disgusting. We now know that this will be AMC’s shortest FearFest yet, running just 8 days (last year was 14, for the record). It will run from October 23 through October 31 this year.

While we don’t have the official schedule just yet, we know it will include the following films:

  • Halloween (78)
  • Halloween 4
  • Halloween 5
  • Halloween 6
  • Halloween H2O
  • Halloween II (09)
  • Nightmare on Elm Street (10)
  • Freddy vs. Jason
  • Friday the 13th Part IX: Jason Goes to Hell
  • Jason X
  • Wes Craven’s New Nightmare
  • Child’s Play
  • Curse of Chucky
  • Cult of Chucky
  • Annabelle
  • Thinner
  • Dreamcatcher
  • Dawn of the Dead (04)
  • Land of the Dead (05)
  • House of the Dead 1&2
  • House on Haunted Hill (99)

  • House of Wax (05)
  • Hellbound: Hellraiser II
  • Army of Darkness
  • Van Helsing
  • Lake Placid
  • Slither
  • the Leprechaun franchise

Luckily, the reason for AMC doing a shorter FearFest is because they’re airing the first 99 episodes of The Walking Dead the week before beginning on October 16 and ending on October 22.

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.

Basically, any time you turn the channel to Food Network in October after 8PM EST, you’ll find a marathon of Halloween baking shows.

    As usual. TCM (by which I mean Turner Classic Movies, not Texas Chainsaw Massacre) blows all other channels out of the water.

  • Hayley Bordes

    Anyone know is there will be a Friday the 13th marathon on 10/13/17? I thought USA or a regular cable station does every year but I can’t find the schedule this far in advance. My son wants to do a Friday the 13th marathon bday party and I want to find it on a station like USA as they will block some things out unlike renting it or finding it on Netflix.
