Freeform’s “The 31 Nights Of Halloween” is frightfully good


The Halloween season is finally back among us. From pumpkin picking to trick-or-treating to candy eating, the month of October is many people’s favorite time of the year. Halloween during a pandemic will look a bit different than past years, but COVID-19 can’t stop one of the greatest parts of Halloween: the movies.

Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween” special is a beloved annual tradition that likely means even more for those who are stuck in their house quarantining, or are just looking for a safe way to celebrate this spooky season. As usual, this program has been running for the whole month of October and includes some of the best Halloween classics, including “Hocus Pocus,” “Beetlejuice,” and Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” 

Halloween is already next week, but there’s still time to catch some of your favorites! The complete “31 Nights of Halloween” movie schedule can be viewed on the Freeform website, but here are some movies I will tuning in for this week:

Times are tough right now, but don’t give up on the Halloween season just yet! Sit down with your family, roommates, or a friend, grab some popcorn, social distance, and watch some Halloween classics. Many things have been cancelled due to coronavirus, but Halloween will not be one of them. Thanks Freeform!
