Syfy to Premiere Four Original Movies During 31 Days of Halloween Spook-A-Thon
October is right around the corner and you know what that means…plenty of horror movies on TV to keep you awake at night! Syfy is doing their fair share to supply fans with plenty of horror movies to choose from during their 8th annual 31 Days of Halloween celebration.
The network will air more than 600 hours of Halloween programming beginning October 1 and ending October 31, and of course, it wouldn’t be Syfy unless they included some of their own unique programming as well. Four original movies will premiere during the spook-a-thon, along with a range of films including Orphan, Insidious: Chapter 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning; Cabin In The Woods; The Omen (2006), Hostel and more.
All-new episodes of Syfy’s scripted series, Z Nation, Haven and Dominion (season 2 finale airs October 1), will air as well.
