  1. Yawn, thousands of horror movies in inexistence but AMC has to show the same lame ones over and over again.
    Guess I’m done with Fearfest since I’ve already watched all the ones that are still being repeated numerous times between now and Halloween. Sad they can’t do better than the same old dozen movies.

  2. Can we play the classics past midnight, there are midnight shift workers who look forward to fearfest every year and the past two years you have been letting us down. Come into work at 2300 and the only thing that is playing is walking dead or the history or horror… really can we play some halloween, friday the 13th anything we like a good scary movie too.

    1. You are absolutely correct. I too work crazy shifts and we come home looking forward to this and AMC lets us down. Walking Dead shouldn’t be played at all as far as I’m concerned. How hard is it really to play decent scary movies including “Halloween” during the wee hours?

          1. Tonya… I dont really see the diff if it is recorded and then just play it. Kind of the point of a pvr isnt it?

  3. How come you don’t show Halloween (2007) and Halloween 2 (2009) I feel like that’s not a good thing to show all the other ones and those 2 since they are a part of the sequels as well. As a major fan of ALL the Halloween movies next time play those 2 as well and not just the ones before. it’ll be a good addition for people who do like those 2 movies like me and my friends.

  4. Hellraiser is shown on the28th. I did have it scheduled to record. But the 2 Hellraiser movies have ‘disappeared’. Will they be shown?

  5. So what’s up today with Final Destination 2 and 3 not being shown and replaced with Friday the 13th part 1 and 2?? FD 2will be on again Oct 30th but 3 wont be…. Why the hell would they change it?

  6. This schedule has major conflicts with the schedule AMC has posted on their website. The one posted here is more interesting, unfortunately.
