  1. I love Fearfest every year but…. As much as I love the Halloween series it’s way overdone! More variety is needed for sure. More Stephen King Less Halloween. There’s so much out there for great horror classics. There’s not even a full day of Friday the 13th this year! I hope the line up changes a little. If not what a disappointment! AMC you could do better with more variety. And like a previous poster said a full day of Final Destination? Come on!

  2. Oh wow just frigging wow!!! NO Friday the 13th Part 2 or beyond. Just Part 1 1980 and the crappy reboot…. Flake off AMC there is no way !!! Just a terrible decision. Although the rights situation. I can’t see that was an issue…. I guess I’ll just watch them on DVD.

    1. I don’t get it ! Why so much Halloween?? It’s way better movies!! Give me a break, somebody at AMC must wanna see those films not US! We need more Jason and Freddy, not Micheal Myers you dummies. I’m finding another channel with better selections.

    2. Past couple of years have been awful with the same classics. Where are the gore movies like the old wrong turn movies, newer Texas chainsaw, hills have eyes, rob zombie films, or even trick r treat? Nobody wants to just see Michael, freddy, & Jason all day everyday for a month.

      1. I agree with you 100%, every year I hope for better and never get it! I love the old Wrong Turn , and Texas chainsaw, I love the zombie films too. This year actually depressed me, I’m done with AMC, any other stations with better choices? Let us know

    3. Halloween 1,2,3,4, 5,6,7,8, or 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 – why does AMC Monster Fest confuse horror film with slasher trash? This is the worst line up of movies yet. Universal pictures made some very good horror films during the 30,s and 40,s and you’re not showing one. GORE is not what Halloween is about. Consult some of you viewers over the age of fifteen before creating next year’s Slasher Fest.

  3. We need to start a petition or reach out to movie companies for AMC FearFest to have more variety so that way they should be able to get more movies to play next October.

    1. Just go to AMC on your pvr and fast forward the days…. but the schedule was not correct bc the crazies was slated after pet cemetery but the Dead zone is on. Which is a better choice anyway.

  4. I think the line up is awesome it brings me back to a time b4 social networking and being a kid getting all my snacks ready for scary movie watching for the weekends and on top of that fact these are many classic movie I love oct and Halloween and am I die hard horror fan

  5. I do still enjoying watching AMC leading up to Halloween. Something about watching these movies on cable has a certain vibe to streaming nowadays. I like how on a day off you can have horror movies on playing in the background. I agree that the movie selection is pretty lame though. I mean it’s obviously a joke to a real horror movie fan and the selection is really pretty cringey lol.

    1. I Star November 10 2021 Wes Caven’s New Nightmare (1994) For 2hrs 30 min a.m.10:30-1:00-p.m. Star November 11 2021 Wes Caven’s New Nightmare (1994) for 2hrs 30 min a.m.7:00-9:30-a.m.

  6. I’ve given up relying strictly on AMC for my Halloween horror viewing delights during the month of October, for a couple years now, but I think this lineup is horribly thin. I’d have never maintained an interest in horror if this was all their was in October. Also, I think AMC would be better off with the Wrong Turn series than the Final Destination movies.

  7. Same Movies as the last who knows how many years. I also see almost every night after the 10:00 p.m. movie nothing scheduled. I agree AMC you could do better. I know it’s Halloween but how many times before Halloween do you need to show the Halloween movies. Especially since you will most likely show them on Halloween and the 3 days to a week before. Disappointing!

    1. Totally agreed. AMC may not be permitted to show any other movies though. Throughout the year, you only see a handful of horror movies, and those movies are in the AMC Fearfest schedule. While it would be great for them to show some different movies, I just don’t believe they can. Doesn’t matter though, I will still have my TV set to AMC all of October. It’s the most wonderful time of the year

      1. Yes networks just cannot show what they want, they need permission, that is why NOES (Other than the crappy remake) is played time after time. One thing I am shocked about is that Friday the 13th 2 and beyond isn’t shown earlier then what it is. The remake is alright but not the better of the entire series.
        Let’s just hope from the 20th on there is somewhat a better finish!!

  8. every year no variety, I especially hate a full day of Halloween, Final Destination, Fred Kruger Jason and Worst of all Saw! So many horror movies your programmer needs to step outta the box! Also wouldn’t hurt to add older classics that young people never saw it might enlighten them lol!

  9. I keep fearfest on all day, every year however no variety, I especially hate a full day of Halloween, Final Destination, Fred Kruger Jason and Worst of all Saw! So many horror movies your programmer needs to step outta the box! Also wouldn’t hurt to add older classics that young people never saw it might enlighten them lol!

  10. totally agree with pablo’s post, and others. HALLOWEEN series is great, but wayyyy overdone again. where’s the original NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET? there are so many other great movies that are never shown. TCM has great ones too, (MARK OF THE VAMPIRE, THE BAT, PLAN 9), but certainly not enough. add the CANDYMAN series, and thanks for adding DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, and SHUTTER! what about CHUCKY / CHILD’S PLAY? those were great too…..and don’t forget THE OMEN series, and THE FOG, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. certainly leave out ‘the walking dead’ for the month – it’s on at other times constantly! commenting on other posts here – the 50’s movies (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_science_fiction_films_of_the_1950s), and the 60’s movies (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_science_fiction_films_of_the_1960s) were incredible (campy but good to watch), with stars that were just stating out! (like Clint Eastwood’s uncredited minor role as a jet squadron leader in 1955’s TARANTULA! , and his brief, uncredited role that same year in THE CREATURE as a lab assistant. those are find to spot too!

  11. a lot of good movies and a lot of movies I never heard of or cared to watch lol. as much as I loved the Halloween movies they are playing them way too much on fearless almost as if they are just fillers to the whole month schedule. Where are the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and they should have more of the rest of the Friday the 13th movies on also than just the original being on there. This lineup is a little better than last year’s. I hope the rest of the schedule has more good movies.

  12. Please give us more variety this year. Add a lot of old and classic horror (I.E universal monster movies, the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, etc.) and you can’t beat the classics. That’s why I watch fear fest. You can learn a thing or two from Svengoolie, AMC Fear Fest.

  13. I look forward to Fearfest every year on AMC, but I wish they would play more variety of horror flicks. There are so many great horror movies out there you don’t see shown during October.
