AMC is rolling out their annual FearFest celebration, and this year it is “monster-sized”, featuring over 700 hours of horror films over the Halloween season. And who better to curate this giant selection of horror than Shudder?

The celebration, titled “FearFest, Shocked by Shudder” will be included by AMC Networks’ group of streaming services, and the whole shebang kicked off on September 1 with Shudder’s 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time.

Through September and October, a new movie will stream on Shudder each Friday. A new season of Creepshow is coming up, there’s a new V/H/S film on the horizon, and fans will even be treated to a new film in the Hell House LLC franchise.

Need more FearFest? Well, how about a handful of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs specials, along with an all-new season of The Boulet Brothers Dragula? And traditional FearFest is back with its roster of iconic horror beginning the last week of September. Every night of the week you can watch the horror movies we all know and love, such as The Shining, Firestarter, and the Halloween and Scream franchises. It’s a Spooky Season extravaganza, so let’s dig in and see what AMC and Shudder are offering up.
