On AFN|family & AFN|movie Oct 27 & 28.
Cheap candy, plastic pumpkins and kid costumes have been cluttering grocery store aisles since September. This seasonal omen is a reminder for AFN to start “howling” over what television treats we can give you, our favorite AFN trick-or-treaters during this scary time of year. So, deep in the dark forests of our programming lair, a declaration was made:
“Let’s do something wicked… like having a Werewolf Howl-O-Ween Weekend on AFN|family and AFN|movie!”
Firing up our programming back-hoe, AFN’s minions promptly began grave-digging all werewolf themed series and movies from AFN’s crypts.
Teen Wolf Marathon on AFN|family
Teen Wolf might be a metaphor for teenage angst, or just a clever ploy for Madison avenue to sell acne cream. Or maybe some of you can actually relate to an awkward teen that is attacked by a werewolf, inherits its curse, and the many enemies that come with it. So lucky you that AFN|family will present the first and second seasons (2011 – 2012) of Teen Wolf in order, Saturday and Sunday October 27th and 28th at 12 pm (CET/JKT). The show stars Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed and Dylan O’Brien. This series is based on the 1985 movie of the same name starring Micheal J. Fox.
