Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for me. I am not a big fan of Christmas but I get a sick pleasure out of Halloween.
When I was younger, my siblings and I get a kick out of building a fort out of pillows and blankets while watching Noli De Castro’s “Magandang Gabi Bayan All Saints Day special.” We will huddle under the blankets, sweating bullets while screaming our brains out for badly made-up white ladies and banshees. It’s been a while since the last MGB Halloween special aired, and for the kids of the 90s, Halloweeen will never be the same without it – made up forts and bad make-up included.
Fortunately for fear fanatics who crave real terror, Thrill, Asia’s first and only movie channel dedicated 24/7 to the widely popular horror, thriller and suspense genres is offering Thrill-O-Ween this October 31
Thill-O-Ween! will cram in decades worth of Horror classics into a single whirlwind thrill-a-thon that starts at 1:10 am with the phenomenally successful and thoroughly terrifying supernatural thriller The Ring, followed by the equally horrifying Ring 2 later in the day. That in itself should be more than enough to stop you from even blinking at your TV for a very long time for fear lest Sadako come out of it.
To make sure that you have your fill of scary movies, Thrill will also air no less than three instalments of the Paranormal Activity franchise.
In between franchise instalments, Thrill will also air Shutter Island with Leonardo DiCaprio and powerhouse cast that includes Mark Ruffalo, and Ben Kingsley.
Winding down the Thrill-O-Ween! will be the American take on phenomenally well received Korean Thriller, The Uninvited. And finally, to cap off the relentless barrage of titillating, terrifying, and thoroughly entertaining fare that is the Thrill-O-Ween!, we have the aptly titled Halloween Resurrection.
Thrill is available on (Skycable Ch.107, Cablelink Ch.201, Destiny Cable Ch.11 and Cignal Ch 69). For more information, you can log on to http://www.thrill-tv.com or http://www.facebook.com/WatchThrill.
So grab the popcorn, or the pillows and blankets, call your friends or significant others — after all, getting scared together is always the best.
