This Halloween, T+E’s highly-anticipated annual broadcast event, Creep Week, running from Saturday, October 9 to Sunday, October 17, is more hair-raising and blood curdling than ever before with over 140 hours worth of chills and thrills. In an effort to outdo T+E’s Creep Week last year, the channel’s lineup of daily spooky programming includes themed marathons of hauntings and possessions taking place inside the house, outside the house, and even in other realms. Highlights include the original documentary special Bathsheba (world broadcast premiere), the unbelievable true story of the Perron family, who lived in the world’s most famous haunted house that inspired the horror film, The Conjuring; the original anthology series Eli Roth Presents: A Ghost Ruined My Life (Canadian broadcast premiere), immersing audiences in modern-day true stories of victims haunted and hunted by spirits, executive produced by the modern master of horror Eli Roth; and Proof (Canadian broadcast premiere), a new series that will have audiences questioning what they think they know is true. The goosebumps continue with hit resurrected shows, including T+E’s hit original series Hotel Paranormal, narrated by Emmy® Award-winning and Oscar®-nominated actor Dan Aykroyd and fan-favourite Paranormal: Caught on Camera, showcasing amazing, eye-opening and downright scary paranormal videos captured by eyewitnesses from around the world.
“T+E is the ultimate destination for paranormal programming all year long, but in the lead up to Halloween, we really like to take it to a whole new level with an unbeatable lineup of frightening world broadcast premieres and Canadian exclusives,” says Craig Junner, VP, Programming, Canadian Media, Blue Ant Media. “To kick off the five-year anniversary of Creep Week, we’ve scheduled daily programming themes to create fun and engaging experiences for audiences that will keep them entertained while also keeping them up at night.”
