Halloween is a great holiday for TV, since the greats of the horror movie genre can all be pulled out to scare and scare again. For digital broadcast network Antenna TV, more than 100 hours of “spooktacular programming” will climax with “Hitch-o-ween” – a 32-episode/16 hour Alfred Hitchcock Presents Marathon on Halloween.
Beginning Monday (10/17) Antenna TV, which airs on 50 affiliates across the US reaching 54% of TV households, is featuring Halloween and horror movies, including “Night of the Living Dead,” Boris Karloff in “The Black Room” and Bela Lugosi in “My Son, the Vampire.”
The fright fest continues on Halloween weekend with a “Horror-ibles Marathon,” 24 hours of creepy classics beginning at 1:00 pm ET on Sunday, October 30th. That leads into the Hitchcock marathon on Halloween, running through 5:00 pm on Tuesday, November 1st.
