With the new “Friday the 13th” movie scrapped, this Friday, Oct. 13, is sure to hurt a lot more for horror fans. While there’s no fresh incarnation of the slasher to look forward to just yet, there’s still tons of versions of the horror classic to catch on TV and online this Halloween 2017 season.

A “Friday the 13th” marathon kicks off on Starz Encore starting at 9:58 a.m. EDT on Friday starting with “Friday the 13th Part III: Jason Takes Manhattan.” Eight movies will be shown throughout the day before ending with “Friday the 13th” at 9 p.m. The marathon wraps up just after 10:30 p.m.

While Friday’s movie marathon is sure to please Jason Vorhees fanatics, one thing “Friday the 13th” fans shouldn’t count on is a new film releasing anytime soon. It was announced earlier this year that the forthcoming sequel was canned by Paramount Pictures. Still, fans can take some solace in knowing the details of what could have been.

MovieWeb discovered the planned title for screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift’s defunct project, “Friday The 13th: Camp Blood - The Death Of Jason Voorhees.” The filmmakers also revealed on Twitter that the movie would have taken place in winter, unlike past installments. Luckily for horror fans, there are still tons of thrillers coming to theaters this month.

If you’re itching to watch other horror films outside of the “Friday the 13th” franchise, there are, of course, tons of other titles films airing on TV this Friday as well. The classic Steven Spielberg scarer “Poltergeist” is showing at 10 a.m. on Spike followed by the holiday scarer “Krampus” at 11:50 a.m. on HBO. “The Bad Seed” 1956 version is airing at 4:30 p.m. on TCM. Stephen King’s “It” (and no, not the latest release) airs at 8 p.m. on Spike. For late night viewers, IFC will be airing “Jeepers Creepers 2” staring at 10:15 p.m.

Happy Friday the 13th!
