Freeform’s ’31 Nights of Halloween’ 2023

It’s a spooky season, monsters! Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween” return for it’s 25th anniversary with a spellbinding lineup of Halloween favorites that will keep you on your toe all month long. Reconnect with timeless classics to contemporary gems like “Hocus Pocus”, “Monsters, Inc.,” “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “The Addams Family” and more!

There are 3 movies that will premiere on Freeform for the first time ever: Zombies (October 7th), Zombies 2 (October 7th), and Encanto (October 22nd).

This year Freeform is offering the shows at a given time in their own time zone: Eastern Daylight Time and Pacific Daylight Time. Personally, it’s going to be easier to read the annual ’31 Nights of Halloween’ 2023 guide by seeing the given time in one format. Before we go any further, check out the 1 minute trailer of all what comes to Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween!

If you don’t have Freeform, that’s okay. Use these as a guide or suggestion to watch the feast of Halloween from your movie library, stream from your favorite network or rent them from somewhere! Celebrate the season of Halloween with your family, loved ones, friends, or alone but do it with a scream!
