FREEFORM SCARES UP MAXIMUM THRILLS WITH NEWLY EXPANDED '31 NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN' PROGRAMMING EVENT

The Holiday Event Will Celebrate the 25 Anniversaries of 'Hocus Pocus' and 'Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas'

All New 'Decorating Disney' Special Gives Viewers a Sneak Peek as Your Favorite Disney Destinations Prepare for Halloween

Why celebrate the spookiest time of the year for only 13 nights when you can celebrate for 31!? Freeform has expanded their annual Halloween programming event to "31 Nights of Halloween" bringing more thrills and chills to the entire month. From Oct. 1, the network will be invaded by everyone's favorite witches, a murderous barber, out of control dinosaurs and everything else that goes bump in the night.

This year's event will also be the exclusive television home for the film "Hocus Pocus," which is celebrating its 25 anniversary, and will end with an all-day marathon featuring the hauntingly beautiful Sanderson Sisters. Also marking a huge milestone, "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" will celebrate its 25 anniversary on Oct. 29!

"Decorating Disney: Halloween Magic," premiering Oct. 14, will give audiences a spooky behind the scenes tour on how Halloween "spirits" spread throughout the Disney parks. From the executive producers of the "Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings" series and last year's special "Decorating Disney: Holiday Magic," viewers will learn how the dedicated team of Disney cast members bring Halloween to life with pumpkins, ghosts and ghoulish delights around every corner of these magical destinations.
