Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween: The best movies to watch (free)


October 1 marks the beginning of Freeform’s highly anticipated 31 Nights of Halloween! Here are the best movies to watch on the network.

It’s been fall for just over a week, but nothing makes it more official than Oct. 1! Ready for cooler weather and spooky films? Freeform is here to assist with many movies that they’ll be launching every single day of October. That’s right, you’ll have a free movie to enjoy each evening!

The nights will kick off with a family friendly feature. But, not to worry, horror fans, as the evening grows darker, so do the movies! And with up to six movies playing each day, it’s impossible to keep up with it all. This is why we are highlighting the best movie to watch each day!

There truly is something for everybody on Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween! From Monsters Inc. for the little ones to Zombieland. This is also the perfect time to watch a few of these old favorites (such as Zombieland), as sequels will soon (or recently have) premiere.
