AMC’s Fear Fest. It isn’t what it used to be, but it’s still worth watching. It looks like AMC has decided to include some classic genre movies in the early AM. Full schedule is here.

Freeform has a more kid friendly lineup of genre movies, called 31 Nights of Halloween. There are some pretty good movies on their schedule, but don’t expect something like Hellraiser. Their schedule is here.

The Food Channel has an interesting show called Halloween Wars. It’s a reality show that features teams competing against each other to create the best edible Halloween display in the category chosen by the hosts. The teams include pumpkin carvers and pastry chefs. The show’s page on the Food Channel site is here. They also have Halloween Cake Off and the Halloween Baking Championship. Food Channel’s daily schedule is here.

Turner Classic Movies has it’s annual month long horror fest running again this year. It’s full schedule is here.

Travel Channel has a month long paranormal fest called Ghostober. They have a four hour live ghost hunt in Salem on October 4, and several new paranormal series launching in October. You can view the programming here and their schedule is here.

The Disney Channel has it’s kids friendly Monstober again this October. Their full schedule is here.

I get a lot of my information from a site called Halloween Movies on TV. They are a comprehensive resource, and the site is updated daily. Their home page is here.
