ABC Family’s “13 Nights of Halloween” Lineup (2015)

13 Nights of Halloween, ABC Family.
“13 Nights of Halloween”, ABC Family.

ABC Family has revealed its movie lineup for this year’s “13 Nights of Halloween.” Thirteen nights doesn’t quite cut it for these Halloween junkies, but it’s a yearly tradition we always look forward to nonetheless. Growing up, I remember being swept up in ABC Family marathons of Scariest Places on Earth around Halloween. Hosted by Linda Blair (The Exorcist) and narrated by the chilling voice of Zelda Rubinstein (Poltergeist), I hope this campy, Halloween-friendly series makes its way to the programming schedule again this year.

The lineup looks solid, although I’m not sure how Batman and The Hunger Games tie into Halloween. We’re most excited for The Addams Family (its sequel Addams Family Values), Casper, Hocus Pocus, and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Having these movies on DVD, we could watch them anytime, but there’s something nostalgic about watching them on television with Halloween-themed commercials interspersed.

What films in the lineup are you most looking forward to? What shows and Halloween specials do you look forward to every year? Leave your thoughts below!
