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. Repeat movies way too much.Schedule says American werewolf in London October 27 at 9 am.Wasnt on.Gremlins 2 was.Since when is Gremlins horror.Played 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street over & over try playing 1984.Bad scheduling all around.

  1. I wish they showed more Chucky movies, more of the original parts of Friday the 13th, and at least most of the original Nightmare on Elm Street movies

  2. Please, please show Trick R Treat more than just October 5 at 1:30 in the afternoon. That movie deserves a night time slot and preferably a few airings in October. Probably one of the best Halloween movies in the history of true Halloween movies!

  3. Insidious, sinister, the nun, conjuring series. Love fearfest but need more variety. Not Sure why they dont play halloween 2 with the rest of the series

  4. “Final Destination” is NOT a Halloween movie!!! It’s a horrible series and of course they’re playing the atrocious sequels

    1. There is no such thing as Halloween movies, in general they are horror movies played for Halloween.
      As to the sequals, they can only play what they are allowed to play.

    1. You need to understand that networks cannot just show what they want, they have to have the rights. They are limited to what they show.

  5. Oh… no… They’re going to do it again with the Halloween franchise playing 20 times in October. Love Michael but try to diversify. Jeepers Creepers, Universal classics, Scream, The Descent, Wrong Way, etc..

    1. I’m sorry but Michael Myers is Halloween and AMC Has a great lineup with the exception of The Shining but I do understand it depends on the rights. If you don’t like the line up then don’t watch it. Your not being forced to but for me I’ve watched AMC fear fest from the beginning in 1997 & im a fan of the channel year round.

    2. You are nuts. I love the “Halloween” movies played on AMC like crazy throughout the month of October every year. I can’t wait to introduce my own kids to them someday. I look forward to those movies specifically every year and I don’t feel like the Halloween season is upon us until that franchise is all over the television during the month of October. The only movie in the franchise that I always skip is “The Season of the Witch” because I don’t like that one at all and I never have. The “Halloween” movies are played the most simply because it’s…HALLOWEEN season!

    3. You need to understand that networks cannot just show what they want, they have to have the rights. I do agree with the over lap of so much, they are limited to what they show.

        1. I would to see jaws. Jaws 2 jaws 3 jaws 4 and amityville horror and amityville. Horror 2 the shining Some tales from the crypt

          1. The Jaws series has been on AMC and other networks all year long. That is one series not nessesary for FF in my opinion.

            18
          1. I mean… they did play a very different lineup just 10 years ago but thank you for being an expert on the matter.

  6. Good to see its all October long again. Here’s hoping AMC gets the rights to play more this year. The Funhouse would be great to see. All Friday the 13th movies. The original NOES not the crappy remake 8 million times. Time will tell as things get closer.
