Every October, I get into the spirit of the devilishly delightful holiday by watching copious amounts of Halloween programing and this year will be no different. There are so many shows out there this year for us Halloweenites to watch.
This year the Travel Channel will have a very spectacular lineup of shows. They actually started their Halloween programing during September and tonight they continue their head start on October with the season premiere of Making Monsters. Making Monsters chronicles the work of Ed Edmunds and his company, Distortions Unlimited as they make some of the most innovative animatronics and masks in the industry. The channel will present two back-to-back episodes weekly on Sundays starting at 8pm, so get that DVR ready.
On Monday, October 1, Sci-Fi (or Syfy if you must) starts its own 31 Days of Halloween event. It starts with the Midseason finale of Warehouse 13 at 9pm, which I admit I have never seen. On Tuesday, Face-Off, a reality TV makeup artist challenge, starts at 9pm followed by the extreme design challenge series Hot-Set at 10pm from executive Producers Michael Agbabian, Dwight Smith, and Aliyah Silverstein, who are also responsible for Face-Off. They round out the week with Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Witness, Haven, Queen of the Damned and Primal.
Never to be outdone, the Disney Channel and Disney Junior are holding October Halloween Events. They are calling their event Monstober over at DisneyChannel.com. Starting on October 1, there will be hours of excellent programing. They will screen Mostly Ghostly: Who Let the Ghosts out on Monday at 8:30pm. There is a My Babysitter is a Vampire marathon on Thursday, October 4, 2012. The Halloween themed season premiere of Austin and Ally on Sunday, October 7 follows the great lineup that started the week. Later in the month they’ll be premiering Girl vs. Monster. Over on Disney Junior they will have Boo for You Fridays with Halloween themed episodes and movies every Friday on Disney Jr.
Every day at 6pm from Monday October 1 to Thursday October 4th, Hub, in it’s Haunted Hub Halloween event and contest, will play a creepy episode of one of R.L. Stein’s Haunting Hour or Goosebumps. Over at FEARnet, which is Halloween central, Will play a 2 hour block of Tales from the Crypt, every Friday during October starting on Friday, October 5 at 10 pm.
There will be more frightening programming to come next week, so I bid you, Happy Hauntings until next time.
As a school girl, my favorite holiday is, and always will be, Halloween. While in elementary and middle school we would have Halloween parties in class and watch movies. One of the mainstay movies was Ichabod Crane and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The story was written by Washington Irving, an early American author. Irving also wrote Rip Van Winkle, the version I remember the best is here.
