7 Halloween themed TV episodes that are scary good. This Nerdist list includes two Buffyverse episodes and another special Whedonverse-related mention.

Fear Itself is more memorable to me than Life of The Party. Not that I'm complaining about a list of things on the internet or anything.
I just might have to do a full-on Halloween marathon this year, since there's nothing else I watch on Friday nights. Or, actually, I'll probably have to take all weekend to get them all in. Nothing wrong with that!

Buffy: "Halloween," "Fear, Itself" and "All the Way" (Giles kicks vampire ass! Plus the immortal lines: "Mist. Cemetery. Halloween. This should end well.")

Angel: "Life of the Party"

Quantum Leap: "The Boogieman" (And, no, I don't believe in the supposed curse of this episode title), "The Curse of Ptah-Hotep," (Hello - mummy!) and "Blood Moon" (Sam actually Leaps into a vampire!) with maybe "Ghost Ship" for the fun of it (Bermuda Triangle and disappearing Liberty ships)

The Haunting (Liam Neeson and Catherine Zeta-Jones)

Bram Stoker's Dracula (Keanu Reeves and Wynona Rider)

Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman. Do I need another reason?)

And of course, to top it all off, the most dreaded Halloween movie ever, guaranteed to tingle your spine..... Fantasia! (The Disney movie. Not the singer. Although she's scarier...)
ShadowQuest, I recommend watching the original version of The Haunting instead.
ShadowQuest, you would of your own free will watch a Keanu Reeves movie? I admire your devotion.

For Halloween themed episodes I would recommend "Broken", Episode 6, Season 4 of Hawaii Five-O. It has possible zombies, a headless corpse and a beach party watching of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". I really think that show doesn't get enoough interest from Whedonites. It has a lot of what makes our Whedon shows so absorbing. A mix of drama and humor, some serious emotion, action including kick-ass female characters. And it did feature James Marsters in the series premier after all.
