One, two, Freddy’s coming for you… all day long on Syfy!
The science fiction channel is continuing their spooky Halloween programming with an all-day marathon of the bone-chilling A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise that made the world afraid to go to sleep at night. After that, they’re dipping into a bunch of other terrifying films designed to get viewers in the mood for the rapidly approaching holiday.
Here’s the full schedule of what horror fans can expect during the lead-up to October 31st:
Tuesday, October 29th:
- 11am: A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child
- 1pm: A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
- 3pm: A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
- 5pm: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge
- 7pm: A Nightmare on Elm Street
- 9pm: Texas Chainsaw 3D
Wednesday, October 30th:
- 2am: A Nightmare on Elm Street
- 6am – 11am: Channel Zero
- 11am: Joy Ride 3
- 1pm: Joy Ride 2
- 3pm: Joy Ride
- 5pm: Jason X
- 7pm: The Night Before Halloween

That’s a pretty impressive lineup that’s bound to keep audiences on the edge of their couches while passing out candy to trick-or-treaters. Why the channel is deciding to play both the Nightmare on Elm Street and Joy Ride movies in descending order is anyone’s guess, along with why they’re breaking up the string of frightening features to play a comedy at 8:30 PM on Halloween night.
Still, there’s enough great stuff there to make horror fans want to tune in. For those who aren’t impressed with the above compilation though, there are also plenty of great flicks on Amazon Prime and Netflix designed to send shivers down your spine.
The A Nightmare on Elm Street marathon is currently playing on Syfy. Don’t miss it.
