Burbank, CA (September 4, 2007) � ABC Family has a frightful line-up of new programming for its ninth annual 13 NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN programming event. The new ABC Family original movie "Nature of the Beast" and the basic cable premieres of "An American Haunting" and "Boogeyman" will join other Halloween themed programming airing the 13 nights leading up to Halloween (October 19 � October 31).

ABC Family's new original movie "Nature of the Beast," premiering Sunday, October 21 (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT) is a darkly wicked tale of one happy couple's road to wedded bliss. Julia and Rich are in the throes of planning their perfect wedding, when Rich's hairy secret is revealed � he is a werewolf. To Rich's surprise, Julia is SO not letting him off the hook, they're getting married. Forget choosing silver � hit it! The starring cast includes Eddie Kaye Thomas ("Til Death"), Autumn Reeser ("The O.C."), and Eric Mabius ("Ugly Betty") as a friend from the past who knows more about Rich's secret than he lets onto.

This year's 13 NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN has two great films making their basic cable premiere. The first premiere is "Boogeyman" on Tuesday, October 23 (9:00 � 11:00 PM ET/PT) and stars Barry Watson ("Samantha Who?"), Emily Deschanel ("Bones") and Lucy Lawless ("Battlestar Galactica").
