A Horror Miracle: AMC FearFest Kicks Off Early This Year
It's never too early to start the Halloween season; spooky season is all year round if it's in your heart. But, just in case you need an official start date, let this Labor day weekend serve as the unofficial end to summer for you and allow the autumn festivities to commence. We'll be expecting a cold front this coming week so it definitely feels like it's the right time to bust out with some Halloween decorations or even catch up on some scary movies.
For many, this pandemic has definitely made them throw their calendar out, concerts, trips and events cancelled, but that doesn't mean you can't create your own at-home festivities. That's why this year, AMC has announced that their annual FearFest will kick off earlier than usual, on October 1st!
FearFest usually kicks off mid October, last year FearFest kicked off on October 13th. This year you'll get an entire month of chills and scares.
Since 1997, AMC has been bringing horror fans their favorite frights to the comfort of their own living room- originally launching as "MonsterFest" and it only aired as a week long marathon leading up to Halloween. It wasn't until 2008 that AMC changed it to FearFest and it's been satisfying our horror loving heart since then.
I haven't really been able to find an official schedule of what FearFest will bring this year, but this website shows that the usual suspects will be shown like Alien, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Final Destination, The Omen, Stephen King classics and more. It's a great time to be a horror fan and despite a pandemic, the spooky season will continue- the pandemic even gives you a great excuse to stay in and binge watch your horror favorites!
