October is creepin’ in, which means you’re allowed to start eating Fun Size candy bars instead of real meals, and TV programming is about to get a whole lot spookier. Syfy has released its upcoming slate of original horror movies to accompany the premiere of its Creepypasta-inspired series Channel Zero.

The schedule includes some proven favorites (Cabin in the Woods, Drag Me to Hell, Zombieland), as well as five original movies, which are as follows:

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 at 9/8c – THE CROOKED MAN

Starring Michael Jai White (“Spawn”) and Amber Benson (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”)

Singing a nursery rhyme summons a demonic figure known as Crooked Man. Once you sing the rhyme, everyone in the house is cursed to die by his hands.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8 at 9/8c – DAY OF RECKONING

Some years ago, the world experienced a “day of reckoning” when creatures came up from below and purged humanity of evil…now, it is happening again.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15 at 9/8c – STAKE LAND 2

Starring Nick Damici (STAKE LAND) and Connor Paolo (“Gossip Girl”)

Vampires have evolved, and Mister must save a young woman from an evil brotherhood.

SATUDAY, OCTOBER 22 at 9/8c – SHADOWS OF THE DEAD

A group of teenagers try to escape a creature that lives among the shadows and is hunting them down one by one.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 at 9/8c – THE NIGHT BEFORE HALLOWEEN

Starring Bailee Madison (“The Fosters,” “Good Witch”) and Anthony Lemke (DARK MATTER, “American Psycho”)

When a Halloween prank goes wrong, it unleashes a creature that will hunt each of the participants down and kill them, unless they can figure out how to transfer the curse to someone else.

Am I missing the link to the schedule? I can’t find it in the article.

I tried to find it on their site but OH MY GOD WHAT AN ANNOYING UGLY WEBSITE!!!!!

P.S. Does any channel show old horror movies for Halloween? New movies and the usual “Friday 13th” and “Halloween” marathons don’t interest me. This stuff is good:
