Halloween TV specials

Sierra Juarez

It’s that time of year again. The skeletons come out of the closet. We eat pumpkin-flavored everything. We start listening to (?) just for fun. And, of course, we binge on as many scary shows as we can. 

To add to your holiday festivities, we collected all of the best Halloween TV specials. Be prepared to not move from the cozy spot in front of your TV for the next couple days.

  • 13 Nights of Halloween: Freeform is playing 13 days worth of Halloween specials. From ‘The Addams Family’ to ‘Hocus Pocus,’ the channel will play all of your spooky favorites. 
  • AMC Fear Fest 2017: For really creepy movies, like the Chucky series, tune into AMC’s week-long Fear Fest. 
  • Classic Horror: TCM will play throwback horror films from the 1930s through 1960s. Just because they’re older, doesn’t mean they aren’t classic thrillers. 
  • Stranger Things 2: The creepy series will return to Netflix on Oct. 27. Enjoy binge watching while munching on some Halloween candy. 
  • Halloween Baking Championship: Yes, even the Food Network is having a Halloween special. They’re also showing ‘Halloween Wars’ and ‘Hayride of Horror.’ 
  • ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween’
