A Halloween full of chills, haunts and fun on The Score, October 2020

Family friendly Halloween movies

Host Edmund Stone puts the fun back in Halloween with a 3-week celebration that begins with Contemporary Chills (10/17), to a Haunted Halloween (10/24) and wrapping up the month with Fearfully Funny Halloween film music (10/31) on the big day.

10/3      Disney Through the Decades - Live Action  The Score continues its Disney Through the Decades odyssey with Live Action films. From the studio’s first live-action film Treasure Island to Mary Poppins, Enchanted and Maleficent, enjoy Edmund’s musical tour through the Magic Kingdom.

10/10    Better Together - Great Ensembles  What do you get when you mix together a half dozen or so stars, brilliant writing and a large dose of on-screen chemistry? That’s a recipe for some of the most entertaining ensemble films you’ll ever see. This week on The Score Edmund will sample the delightful results of this “special sauce” in films such as Ocean’s 11, Sense and Sensibility, Murder on the Orient Express and Avengers: End Game.

10/17    Contemporary Chills  Get ready for Halloween with spine-tingling music from some of the most creative - and creepy - films of the past decade. In Contemporary Chills Edmund takes a peak into the ever-evolving genre of the music of horror films. Shiver along with the contemporary tales of Gothic ghosts from Crimson Peak, explore that spooky Cabin In The Woods, and see what’s new in the shadows with 10 Cloverfield Lane, Us, and Get Out. Join us this week on The Score - if you dare…

10/24    A Haunting We Will Go  We continue to “unsettle” into the Halloween spirit with films featuring ghosts and haunted houses. Join Edmund as he checks out these spooky specters - and their music - that may make the hair on the back of your neck stand up with films such as The Conjuring, The Others, Ghost Story, Ghostbusters and more. This week on The Score.

10/31    Fearfully Funny Halloween  This week on the Score, pack your trick or treat bag with musical Halloween fun for all the little monsters in your life. Scary good comedies such as Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, Ghostbusters, Goosebumps, Gremlins and more. Get ready for Halloween hijinks with Edmund this week on The Score.
