SYFY Hosting Horror Movie Marathon on for Friday the 13th

Another Friday the 13th is upon us, leaving many people around the world nervous about what sort of ominous events could occur, but SYFY is giving horror movie fans a reason to look forward to the date, as it's delivering audiences a marathon of frightening films. Given that many of us are still wishing it was Halloween, since the network was delivering us horror films on a regular basis, the upcoming slate of horror films will hopefully help smooth the transition out of the holiday, as the programming will include classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street but also contemporary favorites like It Follows.
