  1. I haven’t been able to find out a specific date for this year’s telecast of it. And, History Channel usually airs it twice! Once, during the week before Halloween, and once on the night in question, itself. There is something called “The Real Story of Halloween” that’s been getting hyped by History Channel. And, I hope it’s not a retitled update of the original!

    Because, not all change is for the better.

  2. Review by Pumpkin Man for The Haunted History of Halloween (History Channel) (A&E DVD Archives)
    If you love history and HALLOWEEN, then this is the treat for you. You see how HALLOWEEN began 3,000 years ago, why we carve pumpkins, why children wear costumes and trick-or-treat, how ghost stories started, etc. It shows how HALLOWEEN looked during the 40’s and 50’s! (Which is one of my favorite parts!) They even talk about the film, HALLOWEEN. They also show news archives about razor blades in apples, and Devil’s Night. I love the HALLOWEEN decorations that they show later in the movie. I highly recommend this HALLOWEEN treat if you love the holiday! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

  3. Review by Larry M. Smith for The Haunted History of Halloween (History Channel) (A&E DVD Archives)
    The History Channel has always put out some great programs and i think this one was truly the most interesting and informative out of them all on holidays in the USA. Even though, they dont show this very often on History Channel (or any other “Haunted History”), its very rare that you will see it, maybe every now and then, but, not all the time as most reviewers would suggest..just so you know. I would buy this, not just for the information of the History, but, for the rare viewing that it gets. Highly Recommended!

  4. Review by Tim Janson for The Haunted History of Halloween (History Channel) (A&E DVD Archives)
    Like Christmas Unwrapped, this A&E special, which pops up every year around Halloween, is hosted by Harry Smith. It tells the history of Christmas dating from the time of the Druidic festival of Samhain right up to the 20th century. Along the way noted scholars and authors are interviewed as the roots of Halloween are traced over the centuries. Clips from horror films such as Halloween are included. Also discussed is Mexico’s Day of the Dead holiday and various cities are visited to explore their Halloween traditions and festivities. It’s a bit of a fluffy pieces but it’s all good fun and I still enjoy watching it each Halloween season.
