SBS Food Network

If you prefer your thrills in the kitchen, SBS Food Network is running a Halloween-themed foodie marathon.

Watch Cake Wars and the Halloween Baking Championship from 12PM-3PM this Halloween on 31 October.     


The Addams Family

They’re creepy, kooky, and a little bit ooky. Catch Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley and Wednesday Addams in this big-screen adaption of the classic spooky series. When a con artist posing as the Addams’ long-lost Uncle Fester come to town, the close-knit family is thrown into chaos as they try to protect their home. You can watch The Addams family starring Anjelica Huston and Christopher Lloyd on 9GO on Halloween, airing at 7:30PM AEDT.


Horrible Histories: Scary Special

Classic kids’ comedy sketch show Horrible Histories joins the spooky fun with a scary special presented by ‘Death’. Death reveals his creepiest moments, from ghostly superstitions in Tudor times to Vikings demonstrating how to truly terrify your enemies. Catch all the gory details on ABC Comedy, 7:30PM on Halloween.


The Witch

A farmer and his family relocate to a remote plot of land near a dark forest, only to find strange and disturbing events beginning to haunt them. You’ll be on the edge of your seat and shielding your eyes as the tension mounts in the barren English setting. Watch The Witch on 31 October at 8:30PM AEDT on SBS Viceland.


The Blair Witch Project

The film that inspired a thousand hand-held horror copycats, catch The Blair Witch Project on Halloween night, 8:30pm on Channel 11. A simple walk in the woods for three filmmakers to shoot a documentary on local legend, The Blair Witch, turns into heart-stopping terror, mystery and suspense. With just their footage left behind, the cult film sparked the question, is the Blair Witch real?



The Craft

Gather your coven, it’s time for The Craft. Wicked witches Nancy, Bonny, Rochelle and newbie Sarah are back to summon mysterious entity Manon. As their supernatural powers abound, the covens’ spells and curses start to come back threefold, with deadly consequences. Invoke the spirit and watch The Craft on 9GO! at 9:30PM AEDT on 31 October.
