The first fall leaf has grazed the ground, pumpkin spice drinks are back on the Starbucks menu, and Freeform has released its '31 Nights of Halloween' lineup. 

Meeting fan expectiations, cult-classic "Hocus Pocus" will air a record of 27 times. (It will air 5 times in a row on Hallloween alone.) 

Movies that have defined the cultural zeitgest like "Ghostbusters" and the slasher trilogy "Scream" will make their debut on the fall schedule alongside annual offerings like "The Nightmare Before Christmas," The Addams Family" films and "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror-thon."

Expanding their programming from 13 Nights to 31 Nights, Freeform has found the perfect balance of horror-flicks and kid-friendly content.

For those not into the "spooky" blockbusters, there will also be non-Halloween offerings such as "Iron Man," "Finding Nemo" and "Mrs. Doubtfire."

As for the 90s baby's, there's even some goosebump-inducing R.L. Stine flicks thrown into the mix. (Ah, the good old days.)
