If you’re staying home tonight to clean the toilet paper out of your trees hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, there’s plenty of Halloween-themed TV to keep you occupied while you wait for the doorbell to ring. Here’s a handy list of some of the major macabre marathons on various channels, from horror movies on such channels as AMC, Cinemax, TCM, Bravo, and Spike to real-life ghost stories on Biography, the History Channel, and the Travel Channel. Scariest of all (though probably not on purpose) is Fox Reality’s The Search for the Next Elvira (pictured). Eek!
