FEARnet's here to ease your tax-time terrors with some comforting April programming – including a trip down memory lane, thanks to the “After Ghoul Special," featuring classic Disney horror films and celebrity panel discussions on the movies, stories and pastimes that thrilled our impressionable young minds back in the day.
The “After Ghoul Special” marathon kicks off Thursday, April 25 at 4PM ET/1PM PT, features the Disney films The Canterville Ghost, The Watcher in the Woods and Something Wicked This Way Comes, and is accompanied by an exclusive panel discussion hosted by Ted Raimi, with Buffy's Amber Benson and Deadline Hollywood columnist Jen Yamato. Topics for discussion include elements of horror in family-oriented tales and films, and genre-themed theme park rides like The Haunted Mansion. The marathon will also include special content exclusive to FEARnet, filmed at the Disney Archives in Burbank, CA and guided by Becky Cline, director of the Disney Archives, giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at props and rarely-seen items from Disney films.
