While fall hasn’t technically started yet, in the hearts of those who love the season, it’s here! One sign that autumn is back is Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween.

The television network announced its official lineup for the annual event, which runs Oct. 1-31, and it includes some seriously famous cult classic Halloween movies.

The event is, well, pretty much what it sounds like. Freeform will air a plethora of Halloween- and spooky-themed films for hours every single day and night during October. The network usually begins showing Halloween movies around 11 a.m. EDT each day, and they usually run through midnight.


So, what’s coming this year? Here are just a few:

  • Hocus Pocus
  • Casper
  • The Addams Family
  • Corpse Bride
  • Maleficent
  • Ghostbusters (1984)
  • Matilda
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • The Craft
  • And much more!

If you want to plan your watch list perfectly, you can find every single film’s date and airtime (seriously, down to the hour) over on Freeform’s website.

So, get to scheduling that watch party and make sure you have enough tasty Halloween snacks for the kiddos (and yourself).
