Full Schedule:

  • 12:15 p.m. - American Horror Story: “Halloween” (2011) This two-parter from AHS’s first season pits the Harmon family (Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga) against a murder house full of ghosts on the one night where all “the dead can walk freely.” Electric performances from Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, and others round out the impressive cast of this anthology show. It’s the perfect way to start off a day of Halloween celebration. (79 min.)
  • 1:34 p.m. - The Sandman (1992) Prepare to regain your childhood fears with this short film from the UK, a stop-motion-animation retelling of the European folk legend of the Sandman: a nocturnal demon who preys on sleeping children in the darkness. If its style looks familiar, it may be because you’ve seen Paul Berry’s animation in The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach. (10 min.)
  • 1:44 p.m. - South Park: “Pink Eye” (1997) In this episode, Kenny dies. Big surprise, right? Except this time, he’s back and with a taste for flesh. As the South Park doctors cluelessly diagnose the zombie epidemic as a bad case of pink eye, Stan, Kyle, and Cartman (dressed in some of the most offensive costumes imaginable) fight for their lives! (22 min.)
  • 2:06 p.m.- The X-Files: “The Post-Modern Prometheus” (1997) Agents Mulder and Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) encounter a mysterious, Frankenstein-like creature created by a mad scientist played by guest star John O’Hurley. This stand-alone episode, written and directed by series creator Chris Carter, was filmed in black and white as a loving tribute to the Universal classic monster movies of the 1930s and ‘40s. (46 minutes)
  • 2:52 p.m. - The Twilight Zone: “The Dummy” (1962) It’s your classic scary dummy story, but with a twist only The Twilight Zone could conjure up. Cliff Robertson stars as a ventriloquist with a disobedient puppet. He tries to change his act, but his wooden partner isn’t too happy about it. This is one of several “killer puppet” episodes of the show; years later, the Child’s Play movies would propel the horror subgenre to success. (24 min.)
  • 3:16 p.m. - Rod Serling’s Night Gallery: “The Caterpillar” (1972) After The Twilight Zone, creator Rod Serling produced this series, focusing more on horror and suspense than science fiction. This haunting segment features a sinister Laurence Harvey plotting the assassination of his romantic rival. His method: a slow, agonizing death… by earwig? (34 min.)
  • 3:50 p.m. - Freaks and Geeks: “Tricks and Treats” (1999) Nothing captures a teenager’s view of Halloween night better than this episode of Judd Apatow and Paul Feig’s canceled-way-too-soon series, in which the titular characters (including a young Linda Cardinelli, Seth Rogen, Jason Segal, and James Franco) muddle through a night of trick-or-treating. (44 min.)
  • 4:34 pm - Tales from the Crypt: “Séance” (1992) A twisted swindle gone wrong leaves two con artists (Ben Cross and Cathy Moriarty) to trick their victim’s blind wife into conducting a séance for her murdered husband (John Vernon). A spooky atmosphere builds as the mock séance progresses. And who knows, maybe they will get the dead to rise once again… (25 min.)
