Once upon a time, there was just AMC’s Fear Fest. These days, horror is “in” – Jordan Peele is making horror movies and winning Oscars, horror is taking over tv as well.

TV execs are taking the hint, and it seems like every channel is getting into the Halloween spirit this year. Here are a few of them. I’ll update this post as more programming is announced.

Of course, there’s Fear Fest. AMC continues the weird tradition of showing a series of movies out of order with Halloween. The schedule isn’t out yet, but it kicks off with a marathon of The Walking Dead.


The content I’m personally looking forward to the most is what the Travel Channel has lined up. Check it out here, there’s a lot of ghost stories and monster hunting.


Freeform will be showing scary movies every night in October. These aren’t slashers or anything. Think Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Addams Family, etc. And for some reason, The Breakfast Club?


Even the Food Network is getting in on the fun, with Halloween themed versions of their tv shows.

Shudder is all you need to get your fill of frights this Halloween season. With a new scary movie premiering every week, the leading premium streaming service for thriller, suspense, and horror kicks off the fun beginning September 10 and running through Halloween.

 “We’re taking Halloween to an unprecedented level this year with a killer lineup of seven original and exclusive films that starts with the breakout movie REVENGE and culminates with the shocking slasher SUMMER OF 84,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler.  “We’re also premiering the hit U.K. series True Horror, launching season 3 of Channel Zero and bringing back amazing classics like John Carpenter’s Halloween and a massive Hitchcock collection.”

 The season begins with Shudder’s VENGEANCE IS HERS collection on September 10. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and the femme fatales of these films are no exception. Headlining the collection is REVENGE, a Shudder Original that delivers a razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller, available starting September 13.

 Weekly new releases continue with HELL HOUSE LLC II: THE ABADDON HOTEL on September 20, CHANNEL ZERO: NO-END HOUSE on September 27, SATAN’S SLAVES and TRUE HORROR on October 4, TERRIFIED on October 11, WITCH IN THE WINDOW on October 18, and CHANNEL ZERO: BUTCHER’S BLOCK and SUMMER OF 84 on October 25.

Shudder also has a killer classics selection in October with THE HALLOWEEN COLLECTION, available October 1, featuring John Carpenter’s landmark film Halloween plus Halloween 4Halloween 5, and Tobe Hooper’s legendary film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The very next day, Shudder delivers a treasure trove of tales from the master of suspense himself. THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK COLLECTION, debuting October 2, includes PsychoVertigoRear WindowThe BirdsThe Man Who Knew Too MuchRope, and Shadow of a Doubt.

 Throughout the Halloween season, engage with @SHUDDER on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube for access to polls, quizzes, contests, and extra programming content.
