Monday October 31:
Grab your Halloween candy and settle in for an evening of spookiness.
Halloween is Shrek’s favourite holiday – and this year he’s planning a night of frights, ogre style. Instead of the usual tricks or treats, Shrek ups the ante and challenges Donkey, Puss in Boots, Pinocchio and other fairytale characters to spend the night in Lord Farquaad’s haunted castle telling scary stories.
One by one, they compete through the night, putting their own fairytale spin on infamous spine-tingling tales that everyone knows and loves! The last one to be scared ‘Shrekless’ wins.
Scared Shrekless stars the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Antonio Banderas.
The Killian Curse
7:10pm – 8:55pm
As a Halloween treat, enjoy a sneak peak of the first 4 episodes of The Killian Curse.
The Killian Curse is a comedy-horror ‘kidult’ show that tells the stories of students in Room 21 at Killian High School who must each face an evil curse placed on them by the sinister Charles Killian – the man who founded the school in 1906.
Charles Killian was an eccentric man who met an ‘accidental’ death after locals discovered he was teaching the ways of demonology to impressionable young students. For revenge, Killian left behind a curse on Room 21, which saw its closure.
Now, after 100 years, Room 21 has been reopened and Killian is sending demons from the underworld to terrorise the current students and wreak havoc on those responsible for his death.
He only needs 11 souls until he has enough power to return from the dead and seek vengeance! Will enough of the Room 21 students be able to stop the curse before it’s too late?
During episode one, the new students of Room 21 are told the frightening story about Charles Killian. However, they don’t believe it until Killian captures his first soul.
Then Celia, the class ‘bug girl’, discovers she’s second on Killian’s hit list when she must battle a ‘possessor’ demon. Can she escape this terrible curse as it jumps from teacher to student then finally into her mum?
