For the eighth year in a row, Syfy is putting on its 31 Days of Halloween event in October. And with just under two weeks remaining in September, Syfy has announced the highlights of this year’s 31 Days of Halloween.
During October, I Am Legend, Orphan, and Insidious: Chapter 2 will premiere on Syfy alongside a returning lineup of horror films including Blade II; Underworld; The Fog; Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning; Cabin In The Woods; the remake of The Omen; The Last Exorcism; the remake of Fright Night; Hostel and Silent Hill: Revelation.
While new episodes of the Syfy original series Z Nation, Haven, and Dominion will also fall under the 31 Days of Halloween banner, the centerpiece of Syfy’s 2015 campaign are four original TV horror movies.
Night of the Wild (Saturday, October 3 at 9PM) — When a large meteor crashes into a quiet town, pet dogs become mysteriously aggressive, attacking and killing the residents. Night of the Wild stars Rob Morrow (Northern Exposure), Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) and Tristin Mays (The Vampire Diaries).
Ominous (Saturday, October 10 at 9PM) — Michael and Rachel are devastated when their six-year-old son dies in a tragic accident. When a stranger offers to bring the boy back to life, they take the offer. However, the child who returns is not the child they once knew. Ominous stars Barry Watson (Masters of Sex, 7th Heaven) and Esme Bianco (Game of Thrones, The Magicians).
They Found Hell (Saturday, October 17 at 9PM) — When a group of gifted college students run a secret teleportation experiment, they accidentally open a portal to another dimension, trapping them in Hell. One by one they are hunted, tortured and killed by the denizens of Hell who are bent on stealing their souls. They Found Hell stars Chris Schellenger (Hacker’s Game), Katy Reece (When the Pile is Crooked) and Austin Scott (Prep School).
The Hollow (Saturday, October 24 at 9PM) — On Halloween, three troubled sisters attempt to find tranquility by moving in with their aunt, but instead face a mysterious creature that threatens to kill everyone on their secluded island town. The Hollow stars Stephanie Hunt (Californication), Alisha Newton (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters) and Sarah Dugdale (Sorority Murders).
And if you like fake ghosthunting shows, Syfy will also be airing special episodes of Ghost Hunters and Paranormal Witness in a back-to-back block on Wednesday, October 28.
