Syfy’s ’31 Days of Halloween’ Has Begun! Check Out the Schedule

The biggest bummer of this year’s Halloween programming is that AMC’s annual FearFest is only running for a single week. The marathon kicks off on October 23, with the previous week dedicated to AMC airing the first 99 episodes of “The Walking Dead.”

Over on Syfy, however, you’re getting 31 Days of Halloween!

This year’s 31 Days of Halloween celebration has already kicked off now that October has arrived, and we’ve got the beginnings of the full schedule for you today. At this time, Syfy’s website only lists October 1st through October 11th’s horror movies, but we’ll be updating this post as they update their schedule.

For now, the films playing during 31 Days of Halloween include Insidious: Chapter 3, Texas Chainsaw 3D, Drag Me to Hell and Trick ‘r Treat.

Thanks to Halloween Movies on TV for the heads up!

    Thank goodness for Halloween Movies on TV. They are always up to date on everything. I’m surprised there still has yet to be an official announcement from Syfy on what their 31 Days of Halloween schedule is this year. It came pretty late last year, but it still came before October. At this point you can easily just scroll through your TV guide to find out what is being shown. But for a minute there I was wondering if they were even going to do it this year. But alas, I did see a few 31 Days of Halloween commercials yesterday.

    Still though, it’s a far cry from a few years ago where they even had a Countdown to 31 Days of Halloween during the last week of September. But since then it seems to have dropped off more year after year up to now, where there hasn’t even been an announcement yet and we are already in October.

    It’s not that I even watch it obsessively or anything. The programming itself isn’t all that stellar anyway. But it is the only consistent intended Halloween programming that runs all month. Sometimes it’s just nice to put on and at least have something Halloween oriented on, especially during that lull period mid-way through the month when stations seem to drop off entirely with putting Halloween programming on TV.

  • Aslinn McIntyre

    Pretty cool

  • tyler

    Jeepers Creepers 3 on Oct 28th! So glad I didn’t pay $15 to see it in the theater.

    • King Jordyn

      wish i didnt waste mine…damnit

      • GorillaGil

        I went to the one night fathom event showing. The movie screamed of made-for-tv quality. You could tell they didn’t have enough money to make what they wanted. Acting was not up to par. Just bad. It’s a shame bc its got great potential.

      • Brandon MacDougall

        It’s not a waste, seeing it in theatres is much better.

  • GunsOfNavarone

    3 days until Van Helsing Season 2.

    • MrX13

      That was actually a good show. Saw it on Netflix and was entertained.

      • GunsOfNavarone

        Yeah it wasn’t bad at all, I thought the character work was really well done.

        • MrX13

          Yeah I really liked some of the characters and was sad to see some of them go.

          • GunsOfNavarone

            It was also a bit shocking to be rooting for a character and next minute find out he/she was bad. Some of it was pretty dark.

          • MrX13

            Yeah it was. Especially the mute character, I had somewhat of a thought that they didn’t do it but when it all came out it was suprising. Nice to see that soldier come back but as a zombie at the end

          • GunsOfNavarone

            Yeah Axel, believe it or not, I got talking to Neil LaBute online as I saw him leave a message to thank a particular website for it’s exposure of the series. I asked him if Hicks from Alien had been one of the inspirations for Axel and he said yes. Just reminded me of him.

          • MrX13

            Yeah, he looked a lot like Biehn and I was thinking of Hicks the whole time.

  • MrX13

    Looks like a lot of repeats but thank god I got rid of cable. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime to make up my own horror movie list and not have them be repeated.

    • david

      I also have Netflix and Amazon Prime, but I barely ever watch either of them because their selection of horror movies is pretty crappy. I also have Shudder, but I barely ever use it to watch horror movies either. I should probably get rid of all of the streaming services that I use since I have a jailbroken firestick.

      • MrX13

        I have a jailbroken firestick as well but some of the movies, the quality is horrible because the way it was filmed. But I still watch some movies. I prefer NF or AP because the variety of movies. Yes, some are completely stupid, not scary and some are kind of good. For me, it’s just something new to watch.

  • ScaryLarryV

    Wow AMC is really shitting the bed with their Fear Fest, idk bout everyone else I’m tired off Walking dead at this point. Show more horror movies not Walking Dead re-runs

    • Sean Mooney

      I’m not tired of it but they show marathons of all the episodes a lot. It’s not special to do it for October.

      • ScaryLarryV


  • Nia Snacks

    Syfy making a comeback? AMC has some explaining to do

    • 0Father0Satan0Sun

      I wonder what AMC do this season. There’s quite alot of old horror films I need to see, though.

      • Forca84

        TCM is the place to be for horror classics. They’ve already started.

  • 0Father0Satan0Sun

    Van Helsing is/was an underrated movie that got panned by the critics.
    Finally, Trick r Treat is the movie I need to watch for the first time.
    Hollow Man was super dumb and not horror, but I liked the nude of the dark brown-haired lady in the apartment across the street.
    The first Resident Evil was good
    I didn’t care for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
    I already did a Nightmare On Elm Street marathon a week ago

    Still waiting for the update……

    • J Jett

      although the VAN HELSING listings posted above are referring to the show (which i think is a fun horror show!) and not the film. 🙂

    • david

      You really need to watch Trick r Treat. I would actually recommend that you rent it on Youtube so that you can see a commercial free, r rated version of the movie. The way it is intended to be seen.

  • DukeStKing

    Blade Runner?

  • J Jett

    SOOO excited for VAN HELSING’s second season to start next Thursday. Z-NATION’s fourth season just started and it was (as usual) a lot of fun.

    -NEVERKNOCK (which airs on Oct. 15th) also looks like it might be good.

    -TRUTH OR DARE looks pretty good as well! here’s the trailer….

    • J Jett

      oh i forgot…yes there are some good horror movies being shown on SyFy and (i assume) AMC but unless it’s a movie that is 100% rare & unavailable for purchasing (or viewing on Netflix or wherever) and the ONLY way to see said rare movie is by watching it on SyFy/AMC, i just don’t see the appeal of watching horror movies that have been edited (some of them edited pretty severely) down to tv PG/PG-13 equivalent ratings. i’d rather just rent/stream/purchase/etc. them in their unedited glory.

  • Alanmac

    I’ll probably be crucified for saying this but I don’t understand the fascination with Trick ‘r Treat. It was a pretty good movie I guess but also pretty forgettable.

    • Chase LeValley

      I have to agree. I only saw it once and had no desire to see it again. I bet I will one day but I’m in no rush at all.

    • david

      I loved Trick r Treat. I kind of feel the same way about Cabin In The Woods. Actually no. I thought Cabin In The Woods was garbage. I hate that movie.

    • gabriel

      Tales of Halloween kicks Trick r Treats ass.

  • Kyle Cole

    Just saw that they are premiering JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 on Syfy on October 28!!!!
