It’s no trick. For the fourth year in a row, Pennsauken residents tuning into Channel 19 will be treated to a wide variety of horror movies, from cult favorites to extreme camp.

This Halloween, Pennsauken Television will present “Channel Night Scream,” a day-long horror movie marathon, airing several horror movies available from the public domain. Viewers can watch silent classics such as “Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde,” featuring John Barrymore; cult horror gem “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die;” and “Attack of the Giant Leeches,” a film that “sucks” on many levels. The programming culminates with George A. Romero’s zombie masterpiece, “Night of the Living Dead.”

Channel 19 Holds “Scary Bad” Contest In October

Scary Bad Movies,” Channel 19’s newest program, is holding a Halloween-themed contest to attract more viewers.

The show, in homage to programs such as “Saturday Night Dead” and “Svengoolie,” features public domain horror films and also highlights local community events.

“The program is designed to attract new, younger viewers to Channel 19 that currently aren’t watching,” explains Ryan Wachter, township director of Pennsauken Television. “We hope that while people are channel surfing, the show catches their eye and they’ll stop to watch. We also feature community events during the program, so it’s another vehicle to inform residents who aren’t apt to watch Channel 19 on a regular basis.”

Beginning on Friday, Sept. 30, “Scary Bad Movies” will air a different “secret word” during some part of the program. After Sunday, Oct. 23, residents can e-mail their answers to A winner will be picked at random to win a $25 Wawa gift card.
