The Best Halloween TV Specials

Halloween may not be the same in 2020 but that shouldn't stop you from experiencing the thrills and chills you get from TV specials.
Halloween TV specials were my favorite growing. Typically reserved for some slot between Episode 3 and 7 in a season, these specials took a break from the ordinary and added some Halloween spirit, ranging from spooky fun to bone-chilling terror. With endless content to stream and a pandemic that is keeping us away from in-person costume parties and trick-or-treating, let’s live vicariously through beloved TV characters.
