Summer may not be over yet, but Freeform is already getting ready for Halloween. On Thursday the network unveiled the lineup for its “31 Nights of Halloween” programming this October, featuring family-friendly horror classics like Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Ghostbusters, among others.

Freeform is making the most of its exclusive broadcast rights to Hocus Pocus. The beloved film starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker as a trio of witch sisters will be shown on Freeform throughout October, culminating in an all-day marathon throughout Halloween day itself the way some channels constantly show It’s A Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story on Christmas.

On top of that, Freeform will also be marathoning several The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror episodes throughout the month. All that Disney-Fox consolidation sure goes a long way!
