Halloween's best TV: Spooky viewing if you're sticking close to home tonight

Posted on

Maybe you never quite got around to assembling the perfect Peggy Olson costume, and you’d rather stay at home than be seen in last year’s Holly Golightly again. Or maybe you’d prefer giving candy to the kiddies to braving the masses of be-costumed drunks. In any case, you need something spooky to watch tonight after dark, and God knows that if you didn’t get on the costume thing, you didn’t stock up on holiday-appropriate Netflix picks either. Good news: TV is totally on it! AMC concludes its week-long “FearFest” movie marathon with a remastered version of Night of the Living Dead at 8 p.m. If you like your scary tales with a touch of Us Weekly — or at least a touch of a onetime guest star on Rescue Me (Gina Gershon) and the fourth Ghostbuster (Ernie Hudson) — there’s Bio Channel’s Celebrity Ghost Stories from 8 to 11 p.m. Ghost Hunters on Syfy goes live at 7 p.m. with an investigation of the former Essex County Hospital in New Jersey; Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures does the same, with investigators locked for seven hours in the allegedly haunted Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia starting at 5 p.m. And for the gentler spirits among us, WE is running Ghost at 10 p.m.

What will you be watching tonight to celebrate, PopWatchers?
