“As spring arrives and people start planning for fun times in the sun, we feel it’s our duty to bring a storm cloud filled with witches, goblins, and jack-o-lanterns and put it right over their beach day, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with our Halfway to Halloween TV Special,” said The Boulet Brothers. “For those of you who love darkness, blood, thrills and chills all year round, this special is a love letter to you, and is a reminder that Halloween & horror is in style all year round. So many stars from the world of horror came together to put this variety show together, and we can’t wait for everyone to sink their fangs into it!”
