It's not often we post news from a television network aimed at either children or family as many times the programming doesn't reply to our readership (you know, us heathens).
However, what The Hub TV Network has lined up for Friday the 13th is pretty damn cool and should be shared. Check it out the press release:
Celebrate one of the spookiest days of the year on The Hub TV Network, a destination for kids and their families! The programming schedule for the evening is filled with 13 of the scariest and creepiest fan-favorite episodes of two of the network’s most popular series, R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series and Goosebumps. The special Friday the 13th lineup will also include the debut of CLUE as a movie recaptured from its original series format, which premiered as a five-part miniseries last fall. The nine-hour marathon of chills and thrills all happens Friday, April 13, 9 p.m.-6 a.m. ET only on The Hub!
The world’s most famous crime-solving game CLUE returns to television as a two-and-a-half-hour movie featuring all of the iconic characters, weapons, and locations from the classic family game. Airing Friday, April 13 (9-11:30 p.m. ET) for the first time since the miniseries premiered last fall, the story follows six young sleuths who stumble upon an adventure they never imagined after witnessing a terrible crime. Produced by Hasbro Studios.
Adding to the adventure is a marathon of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series and Goosebumps (11:30 p.m.-6 a.m. ET) featuring 13 of the scariest half-hour, live-action episodes from both series where anthological storytelling embraces the thrill of the chill, the nervous page-turning giggle and the scream that only comes when someone – or something – touches your shoulder on a dark and stormy night. Both shows are based on a series of young adult novels from the master of children’s horror, R.L. Stine.
That's pretty slick. What better way to get your young one introduced into the wonderful world of horror than a scary marathon targeted towards kids?
