ROCKPORT, Mass., September 30, 2020 (Newswire.com) - The Film Detective (TFD), a classic media streaming network and film archive that restores and distributes classic films for today's cord-cutters is proud to announce the return of 31 Days of Horror. Every night at 10 p.m. ET in October, The Film Detective will feature a different classic scare from Lon Chaney’s The Phantom of the Opera (1925) to made-for-TV thrills like Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981).
As part of the 31 Days of Horror, The Film Detective is proud to announce the arrival of Friday Fright, every Friday at 10 p.m. ET. Co-created by Greg and Gail Martin, this late-night classic features Ravena, the Goddess of Stonehenge and her faithful companion Anok presenting horror classics like Bela Lugosi’s White Zombie (1932).
Said Greg Martin, "We are ecstatic to partner with The Film Detective and bring you the classic Friday Fright show in October. We hope you will love Ravena, the Goddess of Stonehenge and her companion Anok as much as we do."
Accompanying Friday Fright throughout October will be a Trailers from Hell-oween Marathon on Oct. 31.
