There are two types of Halloween decorators in this world: the pumpkin patch lovers who display cute vignettes full of hay bales and homemade scarecrows, and those whose aesthetic sensibility skews more toward the set of “Saw.”
If you fall into the latter category, you’re going to love what we’ve dug up for you. Yes, that’s right: We scoured the deep web for the most bone-chilling decorations that you can get your bloody hands on—just in time for the scariest night of the year.
Ready to up your home’s creep factor? Keep scrolling, if you dare.
This baby doll might not have eyes, but we still can’t shake the feeling we’re being watched. And it’s just one of many ultracreepy options offered up by FrightProps. We’re positive that nothing will add to the overall spooky atmosphere of your home quite like these demonic toys.
Horror apparition curtain
If you’re looking for a way to save some money on Halloween candy, well, we’ve found it. This disturbing curtain from Amazon—which features the image of an apparition that strikingly resembles the girl from “The Ring”—will keep the kids at bay. Hang this over your front door, and enjoy all those king-size Snickers bars for yourself.
Spooky swinging girl
From behind she looks like a normal little girl on a swing, but the experienced trick-or-treaters should know better—or at least they will after encountering this doll with mysterious glowing eyes who swings back and forth, back and forth.
Says one reviewer, “This is probably the creepiest thing I’ve ever bought for Halloween.” Get your own at Walmart.
Bloody door cover
Your front door might be the only spot that people truly take in on Halloween night, so it makes sense to make a statement—specifically that people are crying out for help inside your home. This eerie door decal may even make parents think twice about letting their kids near your house. More candy for you!
If you don’t have time to create a full-on crime scene this season, shop instead for these ultrarealistic bloody hands. Place them on your front steps, near the walkway, or even in your candy bowl (cue evil laughter).
Terrifying nun decal
You’ll pray for deliverance away from this door! We’re not quite sure when nuns started being so scary, but this 3-D door decal from Amazon certainly does the trick. Make sure your front porch has just enough light so people can see her eyes and teeth.
Snakes on a porch
One of the best ways to spook your guests is with simple props in unexpected places. That’s why we’re such huge fans of this very realistic-looking fake snake from Walmart. Buy several, and put one on the porch, another near the doorbell, or anywhere else sure to frighten tricksters away.
Even if the hills don’t have eyes, your front yard sure can. How about glowing eyes in the bushes? They will get your visitors. Every. Single. Time.
Shop for props like this creepy, motion-activated skull with glowing red eyes that says creepy phrases such as “help me” over ominous music. Or check out this tutorial on how to make your own glowing, watchful eyes.
Spiders—with a side of eggs
What’s scarier than a single spider crawling across your arm? How about an entire nest of arachnids? Make your own spider egg sacs with this tutorial—then be sure to hang them right at eye level.
Although you can pickle just about any plastic prop these days, we personally love this DIY head-in-a-jar trick. All that’s needed is a jar, and a friend with some photo-editing skills—but just their skills. No actual heads required.
