It feels like as soon as we turn the calendar to September, everyone is ready to get into a fall frenzy. Whether it’s amping up for football season, sampling all things pumpkin spice or decorating for Halloween, the unofficial start of autumn has its own vibe that gets everyone excited.

Another sign that fall is here is Freeform TV’s announcement of its annual 31 Nights of Halloween schedule. Why only celebrate Halloween for one day when you can fill a whole month with frightfully fun movies and shows for the whole family?

Every day in October, Freeform has a different Halloween-themed program marathon featuring some of the season’s most popular films including “Hocus Pocus,” “Casper, “The Addams Family,” “Shrek” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” You can also catch holiday-themed episodes of TV favorites, including “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.”
