We’re all settling in for a very different Halloween season this year while so many are avoiding large gatherings and trick or treating is getting iffier by the day. Fortunately for paranormal fans, Travel Channel has us covered with lots of programming for their annual Ghostober event.
Loaded with specials, season premieres, and marathons, this year is going to be one for the books. They’ve even included a trip to Joe Exotic’s zoo with the fellas from Ghost Adventures! Take a look at the full schedule of events below and let us know if you’ll be watching this October!
9 pm ET, Amityville Horror House: Shock Docs Ghostober special. In 1977, the book, The Amityville Horror, was published and caused a sensation. The subsequent 1979 film adaptation was a surprise box office hit. Today, it is the quintessential American horror story based on true events – family moves into their dream house in an all-American town and experiences the most terrifying demonic haunting imaginable. Demon possession, demon attacks, a portal to hell – it was a situation so dire, even the church couldn’t help them. Through archival footage and re-creations, our film presents the harrowing true story of Ronald DeFeo, who murdered his entire family in the Amityville house, and the 28 days the Lutz family lived there. A rare, archival interview with George Lutz, describing the final, terrifying night in the Amityville house, is revealed for the first time. #
9 pm ET, The Exorcism of Roland Doe: Shock Docs Ghostober special. In 1973, The Exorcist shocked moviegoers. Overnight, the sinister presence of satanic evil seemed frighteningly real for millions of Americans. Archival footage shows audience members frightened out of their wits – and literally out of their seats. Some in the audience ran out of the theater; others got physically ill or couldn’t sleep for weeks. Through rare archival footage, this shock doc will feature the cultural impact of the horror movie and explore the story of Roland Doe, the chilling true story behind The Exorcist. And for the first time on television, an investigator will expose a shocking secret and possible cover-up in the real-life exorcist case of Roland Doe. #ExorcismofRolandDoeTrvl

9 pm, ET, Ghost Adventures: Horror at Joe Exotic Zoo: America is fascinated by the stories of Joe Exotic and his infamous zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. Rumors have abounded that the zoo is haunted for years. Now the Ghost Adventures crew is going inside the park to investigate for themselves to discover what, if anything, haunts the Joe Exotic’s Zoo. #GhostAdventures
8 pm ET, Portals to Hell: Frightmare in Connecticut: Paranormal investigators Jack Osbourne and Katrina Weidman head to Poquetanuck, Connecticut, to investigate Captain Grant’s Inn. The Inn was built in 1754, and is rumored to be Connecticut’s most haunted home. The current owner, Carol, claims that shortly after she purchased the property in 1986, she was taken over by an evil spirit. Osbourne and Weidman are shocked to learn that Carol took matters into her own hands and conducted an exorcism to eliminate the angry spirit. For 10 years following the exorcism, the paranormal experiences were mild, but soon Carol and her guests started to experience an uptick in ghostly activity. To this day, she claims to have cataloged over 300 spirits haunting the property. Now, in a never-investigated-for-TV exclusive, Osbourne and Weidman seek to discover if these are historical hauntings or if there is something more sinister at play. In a risky attempt to get answers, the duo asks Carol to join the night investigation for an unprecedented experiment that leaves the entire team speechless. #PortalstoHell
9 pm ET, The Osbournes: Night of Terror: Ozzy, Sharon, Jack, and Kelly Osbourne are going on their first paranormal investigation together inside Heritage Square in Los Angeles, a group of reportedly haunted houses that make up one of the most active paranormal hot spots of its kind. There’s never a dull moment as Ozzy and Sharon monitor activity from basecamp while Jack and Kelly go into the heart of these historic hauntings. What else could you wish for in Ghostober programming?! #OsbournesNightOfTerror
8 pm ET, Ghost Nation: Reunion in Hell: Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango are reuniting with their former castmates Amy Bruni and Adam Berry of Kindred Spirits to investigate Seaview Terrace, a 40,000 square foot estate in Rhode Island famous for being featured on Dark Shadows. The owners were shocked to find out that a recent visitor – a self-proclaimed warlock – had performed some sort of blasphemous ceremony in the house. Now, they’re experiencing a shift in the mansion’s energy, unleashing something more menacing. The team scours 100 years of history to discover a notoriously patchwork past, filled with lavish high society parties and possibly a scandalous murder. #GhostNation and #KindredSpirits
9 pm ET, Ghost Nation: Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango are back for a new 13-episode season of Ghost Nation.
