31 Days of Halloween

31 Days of Halloween: Day #21… What’s Scary on Cable TV? … TV Shows for Halloween

Hello Friends and welcome to Day #21 in my 31 Days of Halloween series!

The days are getting shorter as we get closer to Halloween.  It’s already Thursday and the weekend is just about here.  For the past month I’ve been out and about every weekend hitting thrift stores, my storage unit, and just running all the errands. This weekend I’m nesting, and only going out if I absolutely need to.  I need to binge some TV and take lots of cat naps.

Today TV is what’s on agenda and I’m sharing what’s scary on network cable TV.  Cable networks have bumped up their game when it comes to limited series and Halloween is no exception.  There are a few that are definately worth watching and the others …well the jury is still out on those.

Halloween Quote

Cable TV Shows for Halloween

Chucky, USA/SYfi

After a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets.//TRAILER

What We Do In The Shadows, (Mockumentary), Hulu/FX

A look into the daily (or rather, nightly) lives of three vampires, who’ve lived together for over 100 years, on Staten Island. //TRAILER

Creepshow (The TV Series), AMC

An anthology horror series based on the 1982 movie features vignettes that explore terror, murder, the supernatural and the unexplainable. TRAILER

Wellington Paranormal, The CW

Sergeant Maaka, and Officers Minogue and O’Leary, are members of the Wellington, New Zealand, police. Their job is to investigate paranormal phenomena. TRAILER

Ghosts, BBC

A young couple who are desperately trying to save up for their first home are shocked to learn that they are entitled to inherit a grand country house from a distant relative. Their thoughts that this seems too good to be true soon materialises when they discover that the house is also home to the ghosts of its previous inhabitants. When the spirits learn that the couple are planning to turn the house into a hotel, they are horrified, and seek to make life as difficult as possible for the new owners. TRAILER

There is also an American adaptation on CBS. I prefer the BBC version.

Eli Roth’s: History of Horror, AMC

An in-depth look at the history and pop cultural significance of horror films. TRAILER

I’ve linked the latest Season 3, but Season 1 & Season 2 are also available

In this list I’ve included a little bit of everything.  Chucky is sorta-scary, (if you’ve seen the movie), while Creepshow, Ghosts, Wellington Paranormal, and What We Do In The Shadows, are funny, and campy but still great fun.  Eli Roth’s, History of Horror is my favorite because they address all the horror genre’s, in eight …1-hour episodes.

I hope you have time to binge a few.
