Halloween celebrations start October 1 with Freeform's month-long Halloween movie schedule.

It is only a matter of time, well, days, before the summer celebrations turn into a pumpkin. Halloween is only a month away, but not even Freeform can wait that long. On August 29, the TV channel announced, for the second year in a row, the 31 Nights of Halloween schedule in great detail.

The television network will be celebrating Ghostbusters' 35th anniversary by playing both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2.

In order to please the Halloween fanatics who are interested in fewer ghosts but more slash, Freeform will also play the classic Scream trilogy.

There will also be more family-friendly options, like The Addams Family. It has been confirmed Hocus Pocus will air 27 times during the month—a record-breaking number!

Last year marked the first time Freeform decided to have the groundbreaking idea to change their traditional 13 Nights of Halloween into the month-long event 31 Nights of Halloween. The switch was a great cause for celebration since it delivered the channel's most-watched October in the past three years.

One of the most successful installments in their 31 Nights of Halloween was the Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash. The two-hour-long special brought in fans of the cult classic to celebrate the film with interview segments with Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker, director Kenny Ortega, and a personal appearance of Kathy Najimy and the young cast.
