Now that it's officially October, Freeform is launching its 31 Nights of Halloween programming. For the entire month of October, Freeform will be playing some of the most beloved Halloween classics all day long. It's a real witchin' schedule, so be sure to check it out below.
Unlike streaming services where you can pick and choose what you want to watch, you'll unfortunately have to adhere to Freeform's programming schedule. Certain movies will be shown on specific days at specific times, but thankfully there repeats, giving you multiple opportunities to watch you Halloween favorites.
Freeform will feature a mix of spooktacular movies from the dark fantasy classics like Edward ScissorHands and Beetlejuice to the more family-friendly films like Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hotel Transylvania. As Walt Disney Television owns Freeform, you can even watch Hocus Pocus, Maleficent, Monster's Inc. and Monsters University, and more — all without a Disney+ subscription.
There are also a few movies making their Freeform premiere this month. Jordan Peele's critically acclaimed psychological horror Get Out will be making its Freeform premiere on October 9th at 6:55p/5:55c. It will air a second time on Monday, October 10th at 1:40p/12:40c.
Also premiering on Freeform this month is 2018's Halloween. Despite being the 11th installment in the slasher franchise, it retcons all previous sequels and instead serves as a sequel to the 1978 film. You can catch Halloween making its debut on October 9th at 9:25p/8:25c, followed by a rerun on Monday, October 10th at 4:15p/3:15c.
The John Krasinski-directed post-apocalyptic horror A Quiet Place will premiere on October 9th at 11:55p/10:55c with a rerun planned for Monday, October 10th at 11:30a/10:30c.
The final films making their Freeform premiere are Happy Death Day and its sequel Happy Death Day 2U. These black comedy slasher films are basically Groundhog Day meets Scream. These films will premiere back-to-back on Monday, October 10th starting at 6:50p/5:50c.
Check out some of the highlights of Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween below. The full schedule of dates and times can be found on the Freeform website.
If you're a cord-cutter and still looking for ways to get into the Halloween spirit, Pluto TV, a free, ad-supported streaming service, is hosting its own 31 Nights of Horror. Throughout October, you can catch films like The Blair Witch Project, The Addams Family, and The Grudge for free across Pluto TV's network of channels (accessible through any device that can connect to the internet).
