`Terror On Tubi’ Horror Classics, Originals Coming This October
Horror and paranormal programming lovers are in for a treat next month when the ad- supported video on-demand streaming service Tubi begins its “Terror on Tubi,” slate of programming timed for the weeks leading up to Halloween.
The “festival of horror” streaming content bounty will include more than 5,000 titles of new and classic terror movies and potentially compelling original paranormal programs.
The Fox Entertainment-owned service is calling its Terror on Tubi lineup “scary good” streaming slated to run throughout the month of October.
Among the more noteworthy titles available to screamers tuning into the horror fest will be the premiere of four Tubi Originals: “Meet, Marry, Murder”; “Harland Manor”; and a handful of Fox Alternative Entertainment-produced series including “Famously Haunted: Amityville” and “Celebrity Exorcism.”
Meet, Marry, Murder will premiere on October 6th featuring a 13-part true crime series hosted and executive-produced by actress Michelle Trachtenberg. The show will explore true stories of people who were murdered by their partners, and features interviews with witnesses to discuss the tragic unions. The series is licensed from FilmRise and FirstLookTV.
“Famously Haunted: Amityville” will be available to stream starting October 15th when it will bring a fresh look at the infamous real-life multiple murders and alleged demonic haunting of the legendary home in Amityville, Long Island, New York. The decades old story has taken on new levels of social media attention following the recent death in prison of Ronnie DeFeo, Jr., who was convicted for the murders of his entire family in the house nearly 50 years ago. DeFeo attempted to explain his actions as the influence of demonic possession. The program was produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and will re-examine the story that spawned a series of books, television programs and horror film classics about the case.
“Celebrity Exorcism” stars Jodie Sweetin (former child co-star from the classic “Full House” ABC sitcom series), Shar Jackson (a co-star of classic UPN sitcom “Moesha”) and Metta Sandiford-Artest a.k.a. Metta World Peace (former L.A. Laker and St. John’s University basketball star) who join forces in wildly different reality roles. During the show, the stars are led by an acclaimed exorcist in a paranormal boot camp to exorcise an iconic haunted location.
“Harland Manor” stars Camille Sullivan (“Intelligence”), Summer H. Howell (“Cult of Chucky”), Dion Johnstone (“Sweet Magnolias”) and Josh Strait (“The Ice Road”) as a team of paranormal investigators who document the haunted Harland Manor, only to find themselves hunted by the malevolent ghosts that still dwell there.
“Tubi viewers devour horror titles all year long, so we’ve made Terror on Tubi extra enticing,” stated Adam Lewinson, chief content officer, Tubi commenting on the slate. “With more than 5,000 horror and paranormal titles and four bone-chilling originals, Tubi ramps up its position as a formidable force in horror.”
“We’re thrilled to be premiering our first FAE Tubi original titles on the platform with the inaugural Terror on Tubi celebration,” said Rob Wade, Fox Entertainment’s president of alternative entertainment and specials. “We look forward to continuing to bring original content that not only draws in new audiences with the bold programming that has long been synonymous with Fox, but that also reflects the genres and entertainment Tubi’s streaming audiences love most.”
