Halloween type shows on tv

Post by Pumpkin56 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 10:39 am

Has anyone seen anykind of Halloween themed line-up for tv? I found one by accident last year that had every kind of spooky show/special/movie on every channel imaginable leading up to Halloween. I haven't found anything yet and I was just wondering if anyone else has had any luck?

I saw a commercial for SyFy's 31 Days of Halloween. Culminates with the live Ghost Hunters Halloween show.

Naaah. Most of the tv shows are themed Reality or SciFi or about Vampires. Lol

It says 2007 though?

I'm going to have to do some hunting. Last year, the list I found had shows for tons of channels, not just Sy Fy. And it included movies and Halloween specials, and backstories of this and that, and the history of whatever. It wasn't just reality shows.

It's ok. I still think they are doing the same format this year. I saw on Scyfy last night they announced their 31 days of Halloween and showed clips from several movies they will be showing.

Many TV guides don't post information past two weeks and most stations wait until the last week of the month to run Halloween specials, so it's likely they just won't be listed for a couple weeks yet.

Well here's a link similar to what I found last year, although this one is not nearly as thorough or extensive. I'll keep hunting...

IFC seems like they've been running more horror flicks in the past few days.

AMC has its "Fear Fest" (RIP "MonsterFest") lineup online, and they really seem to be enamored this year with Halloween 3 Season of the Witch (not that there's anything wrong with that): http://www.amctv.com/schedule#search/Halloween

Also, Turner Classic Movies has its "oldies but goodies" up, including Lon Chaney Jr's "Wolf Man" next Monday night: http://www.amctv.com/schedule#search/Halloween

SyFy has had its 31 Days of Halloween schedule up for some time on their website, but I still haven't seen anything definitive about where Ghost Hunters Live will be this year.

I read that TMC is going to have horror movies every Monday from mid-afternoon until late from the 10'th to the 24'th and all day and night on Halloween.
