    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.
