MeTV hosts a season of frights and delights for Halloween

Throughout the month of October, MeTV’s master of the macabre, Svengoolie, hosts a spooky-season extravaganza: “Svengoolie’s Halloween BOOnanza.” This frighteningly festive family event includes a haunt of Svengoolie horror movies, a swarm of spooky Sunday Block Parties, and a tangle of hair-raising Halloween episodes of MeTV shows in their regular time periods; plus a treat bag of surprises including an all new episode of Collector’s Call that’s to die for.

The month-long BOOnanza starts on October 1 with a movie that still haunts the nightmares of MeTV viewers to this day - Trilogy of Terror.

MeTV has heard of the years from viewers who were terrified by the Zuni doll growing up, so he's finally getting the Svengoolie treatment!

The night is going to be so packed with spooky goodies that we had to start the party an hour early! Svengoolie on Oct. 1 will be showing Trilogy of Terror starting at 7P | 6C.

Following the classic horror anthology, tune in for Svengoolie's biggest adventure yet in Svengoolie Uncrypted. In his first-ever one-hour primetime special, the coolest of the ghouliest escapes his dungeon to journey far and wide, meeting new friends and having new adventures along the way. You won't want to miss this look at Svengoolie's career over more than four decades... and especially the crypt-shaking special reveal at the end! Catch Svengoolie Uncrypted Saturday, Oct. 1 at 9P | 8C.

Following the special, the red tuna of terror swims back to the screen with the Sventoonie season two premiere! Sventoonie and his "blob of the macabre" co-host Blob E. Blob are celebrating the season with a special one-hour premiere episode starting Saturday, Oct. 1 at 10P | 9C.

And that's just the beginning! All month long we'll be showing special Halloween episodes of your favorite classic shows, spooky Sunday Block Party programming and other hauntingly good surprises!
