Halloween Activities Week: Monster Movie Marathons

One of the best ways to spend a chilly October evening is watching Monster Movies.  If you have a home video collection filled with the Macabre or access to Netflix or a similar video-streaming service, this is relatively easy to do.  You can either plan out a schedule of films to watch or select them in a spontaneous manner.  After all, who hasn’t said, “It feels like a Creature from the Black Lagoon kind of night?”

Now, if you don’t have access to the Diabolic on demand, there are a number of alternatives.  Throughout the month of October, movie channels will be featuring a variety of fright flicks.  You can catch Pet Sematary and Halloween IV on AMC in the days leading up to Halloween.  Or you can spend your entire Halloween day plastered to the living room couch, watching  Horror Classics on Turner Classic Movies.

Beginning October 11, AMC will feature a variety of films that are sure to cause a fright.  From Cujo to Friday the 13th, there are a slew of Horror flicks worth watching.  Check out the schedule here.

And then, every Wednesday in October, Turner Classic Movies is featuring our favorite Monster Movies.

Here are some highlights:

  1. Hey! I just wanted to stop back by here and let you know how much I appreciate this post. I’ve used this guide a bunch of times this Halloween season, so I could record all my favorite, classic movies! I would’ve never known about them otherwise, but now I have them all ready to watch tonight for Halloween. It’s a good thing that my Hopper DVR has more than enough memory space to house them all, because I ended up recording the whole lot! Now, I’m going to have tons of entertainment for the get-together I am throwing tonight with a few friends from my office at DISH. Thanks again!
