Now that our Halloween decorations are up, both inside and out, I am looking forward to enjoying all my favorite Halloween movies and television specials. While I do enjoy a great horror movie, I am also fan of family friendly Halloween movies too like Hocus Pocus, Corpse Bride and A Nightmare Before Christmas.
When it comes to Halloween movies, I know where to turn to – Freeform! Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween schedule is now available. I have it printed out on and posted on the fridge so that I don’t forget to turn in to our favorite movies and show.
Here is some more information about this year’s lineup and more.
Calling all witches, goblins and monsters! Freeform is getting into the Halloween spirit once again with another year of wicked October programming. The highly anticipated “31 Nights of Halloween” is back all month long with a lineup of Halloween films, including beloved classics and recent hits.
From Oct. 1-31, viewers can celebrate Halloween at home with haunting movies, including fan favorites “Ghostbusters” (1984), “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride,” “Hotel Transylvania 2,” “Goosebumps” (2015) and “Shrek.” Films new to the lineup this year include “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” “Fright Night” (2011), “Jaws,” “Cowboys & Aliens” and “Men in Black II,” among others. The network also released a trailer for the programming event; check it out HERE. Last October, “31 Nights of Halloween” propelled Freeform to rank No. 1 among primetime cable networks in entertainment across Adults 18-34, Women 18-34, Adults 18-49 and Women 18-49 (excludes news and sports).*
Additionally, fans in the Los Angeles area will get a chance to come face-to-face with some of these films at “Freeform’s Halloween Road,” which will be taking place at Heritage Square Museum from Oct. 1 until Oct 5. Tickets are on sale starting today and can be purchased at http://31nightsofhalloween.com/.

Below is a night-by-night list of the programming airing during “31 Nights of Halloween”:
Which is YOUR favorite Halloween (or Halloween-like) film from this list? Which is your favorite television series (The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror is always silly and entertaining).
They are filming a Hocus Pocus too, with the original cast (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy). It comes out next year. I’m not sure if it will be in theaters, or Disney+ (maybe both). Once I find out I’ll certain let everyone know in case you are interested in seeing it. I am. I’m curious as to what the storyline will be able.
