AMC’s 20th Anniversary of Fear Fest continues through October 27th with new episodes of The Walking Dead, more instalments of AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror and a host of scary marathons: a Halloween marathon; a Stephen King marathon; a Slasher-thon; a Demons Inside Marathon; a Hellraiser marathon, and a Friday the 13th marathon.
AMC’s annual FearFest programming event is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month and the network is going all out with a 19-day screamfest that includes more than eighty films from franchises like A Nightmare on Elm St., Friday the 13th, The amityville Horror, The Exorcist and more.
Then there’s the complete run of The Walking Dead to date – six seasons/88 episodes of one of the most watches television shows in history – plus the two-hour retrospective special The Walking Dead: Journey So Far, and the seventh season season premiere of The Walking Dead.
ABC is doing Halloween up proud. Besides annual treats – It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown; Toy Story Of TERROR – the season of Trick or Treat infiltrates several of the network’s series, scripted and unscripted.
The Halloween ep of Modern Family finds Claire letting Phil plan for Halloween (a true sacrifice – Halloween is her holiday!); the Hecks endure Twilight Zone-ish events on The Middle; even daytime’s The Chew gets in on the act with ghoulish good and killer cocktails!
Halloween also comes to Dancing With The Stars, Fresh Off The Boat, The Goldbergs, black-ish, General Hospital, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Man Standing and Dr. Ken. Follow the jump for details.
If you haven’t quite gotten caught up on season two of Sleepy Hollow, Fox will be airing a mini-marathon of the show’s last three episodes on Saturday, November 1st, so you can catch up before the next new episode on Monday, November 3rd.

This year, ABC Family’s Melissa & Joey’s Halloween episode (Tonight, 8/7C) is doing a bit of a time warp and getting all Sabrina The Teenage Witch – right down to guest starring Beth Broderick, who played Sabrina’s Aunt Zelda on the show.
Late last week, Melissa Joan Hart, who directed the special, sat down to talk with a group of fans and bloggers about the episode.
In an extremely clever movie, Fox has designated this week as Sleepy Holloween Week and is giving viewers who might not have caught up with its supernaturally entertaining hit series, Sleepy Hollow (Mondays, 9/8C), an opportunity to both catch up and max out on the chills and thrills this brilliant, ‘one molecule short of absurd’* show has to offer.
Between now and the next new episode of Sleepy Hollow, you can watch the first five episodes online and on demand on participating cable and telco providers. Then you’ll be up to speed for November 4th’s new episode, Sin Eaters – which guest stars Fringe’s John Noble. Check out the press release, after the jump.
