AMC FearFest TV Schedule

What is FearFest? In 1997, the AMC network launched Monsterfest, a popular week-long marathon of horror movies and thrillers that aired in late October. On September 26, 2008, AMC announced the launch of a new horror-themed movie marathon for its October schedule called “Fearfest” which replaced Monsterfest.  Fear Fest typically runs from mid-October every year until Halloween (often the day after too) and in recent years has run throughout the entire month of October as well.

  1. At least AMC showed Halloween movies, SYFY did not Fast movies and Dr strange where not Halloween at all and they stopped showing on the 28th

  2. I would liked to have seen the following movies for greater variety:

    Omen I & II
    The Hearse
    Hell Night
    Phantasm
    Dracula (1979)
    Salem’s Lot
    Psycho
    Fade to Black
    V, miniseries
    My Bloody Valentine (1981)
    Blacula
    House of Dark Shadows
    The Fog (1981)
    Burnt offerings
    The Ninth Gate

    So many good horror movies from years back that are repeatedly ignored by AMC. Some were shown during Monsterfest, but no longer televised. Licensing issue ?

  3. Next year, you need to change the movie line up a bit. You’re showing so many of the same Halloween and Friday The 13th movies over and over. Some variety would be appreciated!

    1. There is nothing better than Friday the 13th and Halloween those are iconic they will always have to be in the rotation and even being played more than once.

    2. Amc fear fest will probably get cancelled for next year anyway. No one watches cut movies with commercials. There are so many streaming apps that have these movies uncut commercial free they should just cancel it. No one watches AMC anymore. Unless they show the uncut version with very limited commercials like maybe 2 they can compete but no one watches AMC anymore.

  4. Should Carrie once on Oct. 1, then never again for the rest of the month, yet Final Destination gets played over and over and over again. Carrie is a genuine horror film, why not play it a few more times? It’s like AMC purposely tries to mess up the line-up.
