Halloween TV: October 18 2010
The decorations have been in some stores since August, but this week starts the two weeks of Halloween on TV. Watch them now or DVR them for Halloween night.
AMC starts their Fear Fest, which runs through Halloween. They kick off with the first two Friday the 13th movies and go non-stop until their new zombie series (The Walking Dead) on Halloween night. I’m not a big fan of the channel, because I don’t like my movies cut up by commercials. Fortunately, they also have full movies online at
I recommend The Last Man on Earth, a low-budget but well-written version of I Am Legend with Vincent Price. Fiend without a Face is a weird one…disembodied brains (with the spinal columns) attack! For a grade-z classic, try The Horror of Party Beach.
Cartoon Network has Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktacular at 5:30.
The Disney Channel has Mostly Ghostly, based on an R.L. Stine (Goosebumps) book. Also, earlier at 6:30, Shaq hosts a So Random Christmas Special on Sonny with a Chance.
HGTV has Halloween Block Party at 8:00 PM.
Syfy is running a Scare Tactics marathon.
A la carte suggestion: watching The Addams Family TV show on streaming Netflix.
