AMC FearFest TV Schedule

What is FearFest? In 1997, AMC 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.

  1. now that it’s underway, it’s really nice to see these movies again, so THANKS!

    it’s too bad though, that you’re showing the same movies over and over and over again. twice during fearfest is really enough, as there are so many other horror movies available that can fill these spots.

    as well, why does the good programming stop mid-evening on sundays, and at 10pm on weekdays? fearfest should continue 24×7 during october!

    walking dead is STILL on during this fest – and honestly – it doesn’t have a place during this month, as it’s on all the time!

    i love the ‘halloween’ series, and the ‘friday the 13th’ series, but there are more horror movies to be seen this month, instead of repeating them so many times.

    and for heaven’s sake, please show the series in sequence, and don’t leave any of them out. some of the ‘omen’ movies are listed, but not all, and not all the ‘chucky’ movies either.

    thanks for including final destination series. would also love to see the newer ‘haunting’, and some other faves!

    1. I love LOve LOVE this time of year, one of the reasons being this! Tha kms for all the spooks and creepy shows, I just love them 👍💯😯😳

    2. I am convinced that AMC is content to shove The Walking Dead down everyone’s throats to squeeze every inch out of the TV ratings that they possibly can, while the show continues to die a slow, horrible death. It’s old, boring, and has dragged on way too long. But don’t try to convince AMC of that. It won’t matter. They will only believe it when the TV ratings finally tank to rock bottom.

  2. In 1963, Michael Meyers murders his sister on Halloween night. Years later, he escapes from a mental hospital and returns to his hometown to kill again. Watch

  3. The hills have eyes

    Invasion of the body snatchers

    Birds

    Children of the corn

    Prom night

    The exorcist

    Christine

    Pet secretary

    Flowers in the attic

    The burning bed

    Are some others perhaps for next year viewings

  4. I have been watching Monster/fearfest since ’02 and this is the first time I have seen them not care about it. The way they started off is not good to me. There is no anticipation for the movies, no buliding us up, no excitement. This is the problem with them having it for a month long. They have already shown the Halloween movies, The omen Trilogy, and then on Friday the Friday the 13th marathon. That’s all in the first week of the marathon which is not good. Then they will show them again in two weeks. Amc needs to go back the basics start off with the universal monsters, then ghost/ paranormal for the second week. The last week should be all about slashers. It would bulid up anticipation, it would be fun and most importantly it would be fun and exciting to watch again!

      1. Yeah…. They really dropped the ball this year. Too much Walking Dead, too much Jurrassic Park, I mean I like Alien but it shouldn’t be a part of FearFest. Maybe I’m looking back with rose colored glasses but it has been much, much better in the past

  5. It’s a shame that Children Under the Stairs doesn’t get a daytime showing, it’s always at the obscure hours of night and only airs once. That film deserves more recognition than some of these so-called classics like Friday the 13th Part 9 and Halloween 6.

    Would also be nice if they had chosen to air some other greats such as Exorcist 3 or Black Christmas. I like that Lake Placid is there, it’s quite a fun one and a few more of that nature such as the original Leprechaun would have also been welcome. And there’s always room for some silly ones such as Cutting Class or Troll.

  6. Out of all the Halloween films, why does Halloween II (1981) always get the boot? Makes no sense to show Rob Zombie’s film. I mean unless they don’t have rights to it or something???

  7. i wonder if anyone at AMC ever reads this blog. hope so, as the FEST this year was good to a point, but severely lacking in many ways.

    HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH series were played way too often and though i love them – there’s room for other movies.

    again i reiterate, as others have, show them in the proper order. there were so many parts of every series missing. truly disappointing.

    including movies like INDEPENDENCE DAY, JAWS, JURASSIC PARK, were not necessary.

    and closing on oct 30, 31, nov 1 with the HALLOWEEN series, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN, was really sad. 29 times they were shown, in 2 days!!!!!

    they missed the rest of the CHUCKY movies, and what about CANDYMAN?

    and again, why was the programming not run 24×7 – the night time stuff was cruddy!!

    FINAL DESITINATION was missing a good part of the series.

    PARANORMAL movies – okay – really – watching hours of home video with some scary snipits is truly boring!!!

    thanks anyway AMC, but it would be nice to hear on this blog, from AMC – hoping next year is much better.
