Ghost Hunters Halloween LIVE **six hour special**

Tune in for six terrifying hours of LIVE ghost hunting as host, Josh Gates (Destination Truth) and team members from both Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International visit Pennhurst Asylum in Pennsylvania for Ghost Hunters Halloween LIVE. Anything can happen when the lights go out and no one can predict what the team and viewers will find, hear or see. A sprawling maze of buildings constituting a former state mental institution, the asylum has been abandoned for decades and is now one of the country's most notoriously haunted locales. At least 100 people have reportedly died on the Pennhurst State School and Hospital property and the TAPS team is on a mission to search the 1,400 acres of terror to see how many souls remain.

Bio

Linda Blair Biography

Determined to escape the dark side of fame, Blair would be nominated for an Academy Award and star in highly-rated TV movies of the week. However after the failure of The Exorcist II, countless "B" films, and publicity stunts, Blair finally walked away from the limelight and redirected her attention to the fight for animal rights.

Stephen King Biography
Sunday, October 30 at 1pm ET/PT
Looking into the amazing life of the "master of macabre," whose stories have terrified readers and movie fans worldwide. The biography of Stephen King starts from his earlier days as a Maine school teacher, moves to his prolific work as author of Cujo, The Shining, Carrie, Misery and other terror classics, and finishes with the 1999 accident that nearly ended his writing career.

Fred Gwynne Biography

TV-OGRAPHY: The Munsters
Sunday, October 30 at 3pm ET/PT
The story of the ‘60s TV hit, The Munsters, that featured a family of lovable monsters who had no idea they were scaring their suburban neighbours. The show featured Fred Gwynne as the good-hearted dad who looked like Frankenstein; Yvonne DeCarlo as the loving vampire mother; and Al Lewis as the fun-filled, Dracula-resembling grandpa.

Witches
Sunday, October 30 at 4pm ET/PT
Shriveled ladies conjuring spells over a boiling cauldron with a few wisps of cattail, it's an image of witches that appear in the minds of most people. This program investigates a movement that commanded veneration for centuries, and then became linked with evil intentions. This biography starts in the present, interviewing modern day practitioners of Wicca - a 20th century pagan cult grounded in nature - and dips into the past, exploring the movement's origins, and its most famous practitioners.

My Ghost Story Marathon
Monday, October 31 from 5pm to 3am ET/PT
Everybody has a ghost story, but how many people have filmed theirs? Welcome to My Ghost Story, the 10-hour marathon, where true and unbelievable stories of the paranormal are told by the people who lived through them - and actually captured their haunting on tape. From moving furniture to dark apparitions to violent poltergeists, these harrowing eye-witness accounts of the unexplainable are transformed into more than tales with terrifying visual evidence.
