'Nightmare Before Christmas' is showing several times as well.

Regardless if you consider Nightmare Before Christmas to be a Halloween or Christmas movie, you can count on watching Tim Burton's holiday flick at least once. According to Freeform's schedule, it will be showing on Oct. 2, 11, 17, 19, and 29. So you'll have a number of opportunities to check in on Jack Skellington aka "The Pumpkin King" and the rest of his creepy gang. 

And note: If you're really into Tim Burton, Corpse Bride will be playing on several days, too.  

Do you like scary movies? Freeform will also be airing 'Scream.'

According to the schedule, Freeform will be airing the hit horror film Scream and its two sequels! If you're looking to watch a great slasher film, definitely check this movie out.

Oh, and just so you're prepared, Courtney Cox will — in fact — be there, and yes, Drew Barrymore will be there, too... that is, for the first five minutes of the first film.
