The American Scream: This haunting original documentary follows the creative minds behind three local home-
made haunts and their spirited, passionate and sometimes harrowing efforts in igniting their town's Halloween spirit each year.


Beneath: When a group of young friends commemorating their high school graduation takes a trip to remote Black Lake, their celebration turns into a nightmare with the sudden appearance of a bloodthirsty, underwater predator. Stuck in a leaking boat with no oars, the teens face the ultimate tests of friendship and sacrifice during a terror-stricken fight for survival.

Dead Souls: When 18-year-old Johnny Petrie learns he was adopted, he begins to dig into his past and uncovers a mystery surrounding his birth family's horrifying death. He returns to his small hometown and ancestral home, which revives a dormant evil and sets in motion a heart-stopping finale to a ritual that has already claimed the lives of his family and threatens to take his as well.


Chiller 13: Thrills and pop-culture collide in each wickedly witty "Chiller 13" original special. Chiller chats with the genre's top-shelf talent, from masters of fear to buzzy young comedians, and counts down 13 spine-tingling moments in scary good entertainment. Previous "Chiller 13" specials include "Horror's Creepiest Kids" and "The Decade's Scariest Movie Moments."

Can You Survive a Horror Movie?: Chiller goes beyond the movie screen to confront the most terrifying realities of today's iconic film moments. How fast would a zombie invasion spread? Could someone live on blood alone? How long could a human being survive being buried alive? These and other adrenaline-pumping Hollywood moments are tested in this original special.
