What Movies Are Creeping Onto Freeform For ’31 Nights of Halloween’ During 2020?

This Halloween might look a little different from years past. However, one thing hasn’t changed — Freeform will still have its iconic “31 Nights of Halloween” movie schedule playing throughout the month of October. Here are a few of the movies you can only watch on this television network. 


Freeform is doing its ‘31 Nights of Halloween’ during 2020

Social distancing got a little easier thanks to Freeform and its iconic movie marathon. For October 2020, this television network will again have its “31 Nights of Halloween.” In fact, earlier this fall, Freeform released its movie schedule for the Halloween month. 

The “31 Nights of Halloween” movie schedule includes Disney movies like Halloweentown, Monsters University, and Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge, as well as iconic Halloween-related movies like Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation and The Addams Family. 

These Halloween favorites broadcast on a daily basis, with movies playing all day during Oct. 31. However, this schedule is somewhat different from years past. Hocus Pocus is reaching new heights, broadcasting on Freeform a total of 14 times throughout the month of October.

Last year, however, Freeform had its own Hocus Pocus marathon all day on Halloween. Instead, this Halloween, movies available for streaming include Twitches, Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, and The Addams Family.

Freeform includes movies like ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Beetlejuice’ in its movie schedule

While a number of these movies are available on Disney’s streaming platform, there are still a few that are only available for viewing on this television network. That includes the creepy 1988 classic, Beetlejuice. That movie plays on a weekly basis, thanks to Freeform.

There’s also the 1980s classic movie, Ghostbusters and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride. Thanks to a partnership with Hulu, though, these movies are also available for streaming. If you have a Hulu subscription with live television, Freeform is linked, along with its television shows and its current movie list. 

There’s also episodes of the 31 Nights of Halloween Fan Fest, a fan party for lovers of Halloween and all things spooky and creepy. These movies are available for binge watching on the Freeform website by providing your cable login information.
