Fright-A-Thon is turning three years old this year. It started as a way to get around the doldrums and real fear of 2020. That evolved into a sequel of epic proportions that started on September 1st and went all the way to October 31st. Here’s the rationale from last year on why we expanded to a full two months of horror content.

Christmas and those holidays get to swallow up the majority of December, November, and part of January. Why not Halloween? September is a month of going back-to-school and residual heat from the summer. Now it’s another month of pumpkins, serial killers, ghosts, ghouls, specters, goblins, and things that go bump in the night.

The change from August 31st to September 1st is a huge one for some people. The green, blue, and blinding hues of Summer begin to fade. They die out and become the orange and black that we all know, love, and fear. Those summer parties turn into the rising tide of the fall. Things start appearing behind every corner, monsters, ghouls, ghosts, goblins, specters, zombies, pumpkins, serial killers, and anything else that goes bump in the night comes out to play. For all of those things and more, we do THS Fright-A-Thon.

What does Fright-A-Thon mean though? Well, it means that every work day (Monday-Friday) you’ll get at least one article detailing, going over, or celebrating something about the fun and spirit of Halloween and horror. You can check out the entire Fright-A-Thon 1 and 2 schedules here and here for what to expect.

Check back here every day for something you might’ve missed. Grab those favorite horror movies, books, games, shows, comics, toys, or whatever else, and join us for the marathon dedicated to the best holiday of them all: Halloween.
