Halloween and horror go hand in hand. If you’re a horror fan, then Halloween is probably your favorite time of year. While others try to be sexy, or humorous, you want to terrify your friends and family!

Spirit Halloween offer a huge range of horror Halloween costumes and accessories to help your scary dreams come true. Here are some of our favourites:

Freddy Krueger

Scare all your trick or treaters in this psychopathic Freddy Krueger mask. The iconic villain from the Nightmare on Elm Street’s look is complete with brown fedora hat and red and brown shredded sweater. You’ll be haunting everybody’s dreams this Halloween.

The Exorcist

Who wouldn’t want to spend Halloween in your nightgown? Particularly if you’re possessed! Scare up the neighborhood in this Exorcist costume: convince the local priest to join in on the fun too!


Celebrate this year in a Halloween costume from the classic horror film Scream. Pop on an officially licensed Scream mask and watch as others scream just looking at you!


There are few things scarier than an animated living doll – Chucky is a horror icon for this reason alone. Since his introduction to the horror genre in Child’s Play, Chucky has been revered as one of the top horror villains alongside Freddy Krueger and Ghostface. You’ll kill them in this Halloween costume!


Slice and dice them this Halloween in this classic costume: Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees costume comes complete with signature hockey mask and shredded brown jacket. Make sure to bring your machete for slicing and screaming.


Clowns are terrifying at the best of times, not to mention It’s Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Pennywise transforms himself into its victims worst fears, using their phobias against them. You’ll freak everyone out dressed in the creepiest clown costume ever!


Made popular again by the most recent adaptation of another Stephen King novel, Carrie White is a telekinetic terror. Her blood-stained prom dress is iconic in the horror film genre. You’ll look amazing and horrifying in this costume!


Chill and thrill this Halloween in this officially licensed Leatherface costume. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the scariest horror films ever made, and with a main villain like Leatherface, it’s easy to understand why. This costume includes the signature shirt, tie, apron covered in blood and character mask. This gory costume is sure to scare everyone off this Halloween.


Take it really old school with this horror film inspired Halloween costume. Frankenstein, the film adaptation, was released in 1931. But that in no way means the influence of the film over the horror genre has diminished. Go out there and creep everyone out as the original science experiment gone wrong.

Count Vampire

Just as old as Frankenstein, Count Dracula is an epitome of classical horror. Dressed in this costume you’ll look dashing enough to get a bite of whatever (or whoever) you want this Halloween.
