Much prefer when it was Monsterfest

Also preferred when it was a month long thing but I'm glad they're going in the right direction. For the lasf 4 years I started an uprising on their Facebook page whenever they'd post anything I'd shame them for bringing fearfest to 10 days as they were shrinking it every year. Eventually my comment became most liked on each of their posts and then other people started echo'ing my comment and every post was full of complaints about how they'd depleted fearfest and forced everyone to watch walking dead marathons over and over, over classic horror films.

I kinda like it. I don't prefer it, but it's nice to have them on in the background when I'm doing things around the apartment or messing around on my laptop or eating dinner with my girlfriend. Sometimes I'll even have them on on a separate TV while I'm playing a game on my main TV. Kinda a weird thing to do, but I enjoy it sometimes.

I always look forward to Fear Fest. Glad they're extending it. They've been cutting it shorter and shorter every year, I hated that. I miss when it used to be the entire month.

Yeah like Captain Flint said... I like having them on and not really have to concentrate on watching them. It's nice for casual watching as opposed to popping in a disc and feeling like I need to focus. It's comfort food TV watching.

Always felt like they had a better selection (including more classics) when it was MonsterFest. FearFest has always felt a little lacking. Also seems like in recent years it was heavily scaled back to make room for endless The Walking Dead marathons leading up to a new season.

This is cool! I don't recall AMC ever doing anything like this except for their Tuesday Night Classics every Tuesday in October.

EDIT: Lol, nevermind! I was thinking of AMC theatres.

Well in the early-mid 2000's they were really the only ones who were doing any sort of month-long Halloween themed programming. (Not counting stuff like ABC Family's halloween kids movies stuff).

They used to have ALL the big named slashers. Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm, Hellraiser, Chucky, Texas Chainsaw (original not the 2000's-Present stuff) and that was in addition to the cult classics like Cujo, Carrie, etc.

I think what happened was the syndication rights became too expensive since other networks also started bidding on that stuff too. When Sci-Fi became SyFy they started their own 13 Nights of Halloween marathon and I think they have the rights to those Nightmare films for those few weeks.

Now there's a lot more channels also bidding on these same classic horror movies, so AMC went the cheaper route and instead filled those blocks with Walking Dead re-runs (as if they don't already show these TWD marathons every holiday) since it was in-house already. But I'm glad they're actually beefing up their Fear Fest offering because for a while there it got worse and worse and worse. I think a few years ago it was down from 10 days to 7 days. Still wish they started it back on October 1st but they've been trending in the right direction last year and now this year.

i remember back in 2011 i'd come home from school and turn on fearfest and they'd always be playing one of the halloween movies. it's definitely become worse over the years with playing movies that aren't exactly the best. now half the time they're playing the walking dead during fearfest.

Here I am hoping these movies will be A List eligible as I’d like to see some classics on the big screen. Disappointment quickly sunk in that it wasn’t what I thought.

Didn't they actually cut down a week or so worth of horror films last year? I remember being really disappointed by that even though I don't watch it and yeah, they have shown an overload of Walking Dead during it.

That was 2 years ago.

Last year they bumped it up to 14 days. This year is 19 days.

We'll see how much Walking Dead filler there is.

Exactly that. When I watch a Blu-ray or DVD, I need to focus on it. Movies on TV (or anything on TV really) is great for background noise. I personally can't stand the silence. Either TV or music needs to be on for me. And AMC's Fear Fest is my favorite thing to have on throughout October. Halloween is my favorite holiday and horror movies in the background really sets the mood!

It's not just that, but I do enjoy watching movies on TV because I like the randomness and spontaneity of it. I don't even know what's on 90% of the time.

I have nearly every movie I've ever liked/wanted on blu and can just pop it in. But there is still a charm to just popping on the TV and seeing Gladiator or Lord of the Rings is on TNT again. Or Star Wars. I have all of those movies already on blu. But it's just nice to watch or have it in background. Especially in October when Halloween and the sequels are on. I could be writing something or browsing on my phone, not be completely invested then hear the Classic Halloween Sound where Michael reveals himself, look up and hear the piano chase theme and start watching it. Same with Gladiator, I probably will leave it on and then when the Barbarian Horde comes on I am fully invested from there until it ends.

Ehh just sign up to Shudder still can’t believe networks censor movies while their TV shows nowadays are pretty close to R-rated content. And it’s Halloween what do parents expect a Hallmark movie.

Weird. I flipped it over just now, as Laurie was seeing the trick-or-treaters next door when she comes home, and the audio is fine for me. But I've never seen the audio being ahead of the video before; usually lagging behind the video.
