Your 2013 Halloween Season TV Preview (abridged) with Schedules

2013 PREVIEWLast year we ran a schedule of every TV/Cable network schedule we could find that could be construed as Horror or Halloween related for the month of October.  Let’s just say it proved useful for our readers and even for our staff when they were looking to find something to watch, wanted to program their DVR’s or didn’t want to miss out on some great “live” Horror. Isn’t there something about having a movie fed to you on TV as opposed to watching it on Blu-ray or DVD or streaming? We may not like commercials, but the randomness that you can associate with a TV program itinerary is novel. It removes a little bit of control from the audience who is all to concerned with being in control these days (just look at the reasons behind publishing  a piece like this).

So here’s the 2013 Halloween Seasonal TV Preview, what you can find on TV, when and what channel you’ll find it on. I’m still waiting for that damn Disney Halloween Treat to air even though I can find it on YouTube. There’s something great about not paying $200 for a VHS tape of a piece of my childhood. There’s something great about my kids just stumbling on to Mickey Mouse fighting a pile of ghosts. Personally I’m hoping to randomly catch the Halloween Roseanne episodes so that I don’t have to dig out my collected Halloween episode disc from the towering stack of DVD Hell. I’d also like to actually watch some Halloween programming with the kids this year though they never seem to stay awake for the gory stuff.

A quick note: We are not going to be able to get it all. So many different markets and channels and providers… it’s impossible for me to compile a full list, but we will update it throughout the entire season. That means you can check back for updates and when we update this article we’ll post it on Facebook and Tweet it out to you. Make sure to follow us in the best way for you. Also note, schedules change. If we find out that something changes, we’ll change it on this article. Let us know when you have updates or find something we should add. This is a community effort for the community.

FOX

simpsons-306v-1380895487The Simpsons annual Halloween offering, The Treehouse of Horror, now in its 24th installment will be released on October 6th at 8PM EST. This year the opener will be from none other than Guillermo del Toro. I can assure you that this is one not to miss though I would say all of them have merit.

From the press release about each episode:

In “Oh The Places You’ll D’oh,” the first of three spine-tingling stories, Homer rides around Springfield wreaking havoc as “The Fat in The Hat” in a rhyming Dr. Seuss-ian tale. In “Dead and Shoulders,” Bart is beheaded during a kite accident; his head is attached to Lisa’s body and they must live together as one. The final terrifying tale, “Freaks no Geeks,” features Mr. Burns’ traveling circus, The Burnsum and Bailey Circus, which has stopped in Springfieldland in the 1930s. Trapeze artist Marge and Strong Man Homer are performers, and things go awry when circus freak Moe starts to make advances towards Marge

Also on the docket from FOX is the somewhat maligned Sleepy Hollow. We just saw the series premiere 9/16 and you should catch it every Monday night or until they decide to switch it to a better time slot. While I haven’t as of yet had the opportunity to enjoy this show (or not) the commericials suckered me in. See if it’s right for you.

IFC (INDEPENDENT FILM CHANNEL)

IFC appears to be starting early this year. Scary programming begins Monday September 23rd. The selection is eclectic and usually, mostly uncut though these features will have commercials. There will be gaps where regular, non horror programming happens.

You can follow the schedule HERE, but below is what has been posted so far. (Oh and I realize that IFC Midnight is actually IFC’s darker new releases but I like the name and logo and they don’t have a horror specific one yet).

ABC FAMILY 13 NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN

ABC Family’s schedule for October has just been released. You’ll have to wait until mid-October to enjoy their programming, so no rush here. It’ll be fare for the younger folks. Family horror and spook shows as the channel suggests. We’re talking about an eclectic line up from a very successful Halloween offering that year after year enchants my own family. I even get the wife to watch a few of these (and those of you know how much she hates HORROR).

THE FOOD NETWORK

Halloween Wars is back for another season. This is one of my favorite seasonal shows from the Food Network. The kids get to watch. They have horror specific guest judges. There’s tons of pumpkin, cake and candy on the screen. Two years ago they had Rob Zombie. This past year it was Tom Savini (among others). Let’s see who the guest judges will be this year.

Watch the Premiere on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 9pm/8c

http://www.foodnetwork.com/halloween-wars/index.html

FEARNET 

FearNet is always on the horror kick. That’s what they do. They link to their full shedule is below and as they announce special programming that you should be aware of, we’ll get it up here too. Last year they brought us Tales from the Crypt in sequential order. This year?

http://www.fearnet.com/schedule/tv

 

FX NETWORKS

FX has the premiere of American Horror Story: Coven coming at you this October 9 at 10PM, and before that they’ll be running some reruns of Asylum. This is going to be a terrifying year with beautiful seductive witch imagery. The damn commercials actually creeped me out. Kathy Bates. Jessica Lange. Angela Bassett. The rest of the returning cast. Sold.

Also note that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is on FX at 8AM every single day as part of their regular programming. Perfect for a quick pick me up while you get ready for work.

SYFY CHANNEL

SyFy will be running a 31 Days of Halloween series each day during the month of October. Titles vary. A rather eclectic and somewhat nontraditional approach to some of the titles, but I can say that it’s nice to see the change up. Now realize that the SyFy channel hosts Face Off and a horde of original features as well as Twilight Zone re-runs. There’s always something Halloweeny to watch. I’m focusing on features they are listing as part of the 31 Days listing. Full schedule at the link below.

***Please note that if you are using SyFy’s schedule they work on a broadcast day schedule instead of a 24 hour clock. I felt it was somewhat confusing in my format to use a broadcast day schedule, so I’ve adapted it to fit. That means that certain movies will appear on SyFy’s scheduel a day early even though it’s technically after midnight.

SUNDANCE CHANNEL

sundanceTHE RETURNED (Two-Hour Special Halloween Episode)

PREMIEREThursday, October 31 at 9 PM ET/PT

Based on the feature film “Les Revenants” by Robin Campillo, “The Returned,” an eight-part French series distributed by Zodiak Rights created by Fabrice Gobert was a smash hit for France’s Canal+ and the UK’s Channel 4. The Independent proclaimed the drama “one of the greatest, creepiest, most compelling shows brought to…TV screens in 2013.” In an idyllic French mountain town, a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they don’t know yet is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality.  But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past. The series is produced by Caroline Benjo, Jimmy Desmarais and Carole Scotta from Haut et Court.

TRAVEL CHANNEL

The Travel Channel? Really? You think I’m kidding when I include this in the list of channels to feature Halloween or Horror related programming, but these guys do an excellent job at featuring seasonal programming that’s a whole lot of fun and modestly educational. Someone in the programmer’s booth must celebrate the holiday like we celebrate the holiday. They’ve got programming up through October 12th at this point. That means that we won’t be able to give you the complete Halloween schedule yet, but let’s point out some programming that demands your attention (and you can just use the schedule link below to get times).

Here’s some specific info about particular episodes. Full schedule below:

GHOST ADVENTURES (100th Episode)
“The Exorcist House”

PREMIERE: Friday, October 4, at 9:00 PM ET/PT

In the milestone 100th episode, part of the current season, Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin travel to St. Louis for an unprecedented investigation – the Exorcist House, site of the actual petrifying events depicted in the popular novel and Hollywood film, The Exorcist. Timed to the 40th anniversary of the film’s release, “Ghost Adventures” is the very first paranormal television show to ever investigate the home, which is the only building left in St. Louis in its original form that is tied to the Exorcist case. The team seeks answers to the mysteries behind what happened here in the past, and in the home’s recent history. To further aid in the investigation, they interview the great niece of Father William Bowdern, who performed the exorcism in 1949.


HALLOWEEN CRAZIEST (One-Hour Special)
PREMIERE: Sunday, October 13 at 10:00 PM ET/PT

This one-hour special features the most terrifying, extreme and absolute best of what Halloween has to offer. From America’s scariest, no-holds-barred haunted house in San Diego and a hair-raising coffin race in Colorado, to the ultimate custom bodying painting studio in Las Vegas and British Columbia’s pumpkin drop celebration, each destination is more frightening and fun than the last! Produced by High Noon Entertainment with Travel Channel’s Sean McKnight as Executive Producer.

“MYSTERIES AT THE MUSEUM” HALLOWEEN SPECIAL

“Bride of Frankenstein, Walking Dead, Ghosts in the Mirror”

PREMIERE:  Thursday, October 17 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

At the Fort East Martello Museum in Key West, Florida, history explorer and museum enthusiast Don Wildman investigates a cracked funerary plaque that once adorned a beautiful woman’s grave.  It tells of one man’s grotesque attempt to bring his love back from the dead.  Then, at the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, Wildman explores a crudely-made whip that harkens back to a blood-chilling voodoo practice that defies belief.  And prominently displayed in the lavish Mansion at the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana is an antique mirror, which some say is a portal to the world of the dead.

“TOY HUNTER” HALLOWEEN SPECIAL (One-Hour Special)
“Toy Haunter”

PREMIERE: Sunday, October 20 at 8:00 PM ET/PT

In this one-hour Halloween special, Toy Hunter and collectibles expert Jordan Hembrough is on The Hunt for some of the scariest toys to sell at the Midwest’s HorrorHound convention. Meanwhile, Hembrough’s toy buddy Mark needs help with a special client – Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, who’s looking for extremely vintage, scary toys. In between scoring Ghostbusters memorabilia in Connecticut and a 1972 Parker Brothers Ouija board in Salem, MA, Hembrough scours for the perfect and rarest monster memorabilia for Hammett. When he locates just the right item, he not only makes Hammett a very happy customer, but gains a new rock star client for himself. Produced by Sharp Entertainment with Travel Channel’s Daniel A. Schwartz as Executive Producer.

GHOST ADVENTURES HALLOWEEN EPISODE (Two-Hour Special) 

PREMIERE: Thursday, October 31 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

In a special two-hour Halloween episode, Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin take viewers to Transylvania, where the team explores the truth behind the legend of Vlad The Impaler, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Bagans and the group explore the most terrifying haunted castles and locations in this intriguing and historical Romanian province, including Targoviste, where Vlad ruled from and ordered the impaling of thousands of people; Hunedoara, where Vlad was imprisoned for seven years; and the mysterious Hoia-Baciu Forest – locally referred to as the “Bermuda Triangle of Romania.”

THE DEAD FILES
SEASON 5 PREMIERE: Friday, November 1 at 10:00 PM ET/PT

In each hour-long episode of the paranormal investigative series, retired NYPD Homicide Detective Steve DiSchiavi and physical medium Amy Allan explore all-new frightening cases of unexplained paranormal activity. The duo investigates each case separately, coming together only at the end to reveal their results. Season five opens with an investigation of Iowa’s Villisca Axe Murder House – site of a gruesome century-old mass murder whose case still remains unsolved. Other highlights include a Chicago home where a woman has returned to confront childhood nightmares; violent forces terrorizing a family home in St. Clair Shores, MI, that leaves the team questioning the safety of the house; a special “Dead Files Revisited” episode in which a violent exorcism was recorded in a Flint, MI home after the duo uncovered malicious entities; and more. Produced by Painless Entertainment, Inc. with Travel Channel’s David E. Gerber as Executive Producer.

CHILLER

Chiller TV is very much like FearNet. They show Horror and Science Fiction related programming throughout the year. That means you can tune in through the entire month of October and see something holiday related. As of yet, the schedule isn’t up for October but you can easily access it via the link below. Also, I don’t get this channel so keep that under consideration. I’m sure they’ll be making a big seasaonal push, but what form this will take I truly cannot say. Check back.

NBC

October 25th sees two premieres for NBC the season premiere of Grimm and the Series premiere of DRACULA. While Grimm may be well loved by now (even though I haven’t set my peepers on it) Dracula is fresh meat. Here’s the synopsis from NBC:

It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

Oct 25

9-10pm – Grimm (Season 3 premiere)

10-11pm – DRACULA (Series premiere)

Let’s see how this turns out.

THE CW

October 3rd at 8 the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries hits your boobtube. This is not my kind of thing, but if you dig the show, it’s ready to sink its teeth into you as much as you want to sink your teeth into it.

HALLOWEEN MOVIES ON TV

http://www.halloweenmoviesontv.com/ is a great resource where you might locate specific movies or access schedules as well. I’ve used them on a couple entries in this post although mostly just went to the network website. I love what they’re doing. They have a “days to Halloween countdown”, and I like their format. They even have links to previous years schedules so you can see how Halloween is gradually being eradicated from our programming by reality television (half truth only). No, I don’t care if you use their awesome site instead of this one. I only post this to be helpful anyway and it’s fun and pretty much we’re all IN THIS TOGETHER!!! The battle for Halloween 2013 hath begun! Also make sure to “like” their FaceBook page HERE. They have some very fun pics up of animated features from my youth.

-Dr. TERROR … ready for Autumn and October and more pixy stix up my nose.

About Jimmy Terror

Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog, Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived "Horrorabilly" band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.

    Wow! What an undertaking – thanks a lot! I can’t believe The Simpsons are doing another horror segment about two heads on one body. Now THAT’S lazy.

      The Simpsons need to focus on parodies. Their originals seem to fall flat (thought not always). I’m excited to see the del Toro offering, but the Cat and the Hat? What is that!?

    wow so many. love the kind of movie festival idea. recommend 10?

    • http://drterrorsblogofhorrors.blogspot.com Jimmy Terror

      My recommendation for Halloween are as follows: 1. Night of the Living Dead (original) 2. The Haunting (original) 3. House on Haunted Hill (original) 4. Frankenstein (original) 5. Halloween II (but wait until just after Midnight when it’s technically Nov 1st because much of the movie seems to take place later in the evening. 6. Creepshow 7. Tales from the Crypt (1972) 8. The Thing from another World 9. The Beyond 10. Blood Feast. (not all of these are on… just think they’re a great way to spend Halloween day or any day).

    Great list – thanks for compiling!

    Don’t forget about Toy Story of Terror, which airs on ABC on October 16th at 8 :)

      Thanks Alex. Will include it. I’ll be doing regular updates so this kind of thing helps everyone. I’m scanning some of the major networks too, but it gets tricky since they typical don’t do huge programming switches.

    hmmmmm…I just happened to check for the HITCHER on Oct 1 because you didn’t state whether it was the original or not. The syfy schedule does not list, same for Oct 2nd, the listing does not match what you have. I’m not checking every date, but figure a lot may be wrong if the 1st and 2nd are wrong? Cheers for the list though.

      The reason you are not seeing The Hitcher on Oct 1st is being it’s listed on SyFy’s Sept 30th. SyFy works on a “broadcast day” schedule which airs from 6 or so to 4am or so. That means that The Hitcher shows up on Sept 30th’s schedule even though it will air on Oct 1st at 1:30AM. I’ll clarify this in the notes in the post. Sorry for the confusion. Incidentally… they’re the only ones that I’ve seen do that.
