Halloween Specials On TV
Halloween is tomorrow, and if you’re planning on spending it on the couch and eating all the candy those little munchkins keep ringing your doorbell for, here’s an hour-by-hour list of Halloween specials so you can plan your night!
Ok, my fellow ‘not gonna trick or treat gonna stay here on the couch and veg’ers’, grab the bowl of candy, a snuggly throw, and get ready to spend the night without fake blood or dressed up as slutty nurse. Or vampire. Or teacher. Or policewoman. Or, well, you get the message.
Feel free to print this out. But you should probably laminate it so it won’t get sticky from your candy fingers!
Halloween 2 (Spike) – If you don’t like your wits and want them scared right out of you check out what happens when Michael Myers goes back home to wrap up some loose ends!
The Addams Family (ABC Family) – Morticia and Gomez Addams keep Halloween in their hearts all year long – and they have the coolest theme music, like, EVER!
A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (SyFy) – Freddy Kruger possesses a teenager’s unborn baby. ‘Nuff said.
Paranormal Activity 2 (FX) – Because you know, the wife throwing the husband at the camera at the end of ‘Paranormal Activity’ wasn’t scary enough. Oops. You haven’t seen the first one? Sorry…..
Scooby-Doo!: Camp Scare (Cartoon Network) – Maybe you don’t want to scream all night – then this is the perfect movie for the wuss in you!!! Disclaimer – this is my kind of movie!
SNL Halloween (NBC) – You can watch Halloween-themed sketches from Saturday Night Live and laugh instead of scream.
It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC) – This is the one I wait for all year! No one does the holidays like Charlie Brown and friends. Will Linus’ faith in the Great Pumpkin be vindicated, or will he be embarrassed one more time by the orange gourd? I’m on pins and needles!
The Lost Boys (VH1) – The Corey’s – Google it kids – star in this 80’s classic about a town overrun with vampires. This is 80’s cinema at it’s best! Great soundtrack, amazing quick cuts, beautiful teenaged movie stars – ahhhh, youth!
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (OVATN) – You might need a crowd to make Dr. Frank-N-Furter and gang even more fun to watch! It’s no fun to do the ‘Time Warp’ all by yourself!
Gremlins (CMT) – 1984 — Ok, this one has a Christmas theme, but the scares really hold 29 years later!
