AMC FearFest

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.

AMC Fear Fest 2022 Schedule

FearFest will begin on Saturday, October 1st 2022.
