The Addams Family
The Gothic satire of The Addams Family captures the fun and spookiness of Halloween perfectly, and it's easy to bring a little bit of the family's energy into your home. Let Thing hold your candles with this hand votive holder from Target ($6), and while you're there, pick up this old-school phone ($15) — with horror sounds — that Morticia would be obsessed with. Then, head over to Etsy for this minimalist portrait of Wednesday
($7) that you can keep up long after the holiday ends.
With Season 2 of Stranger Things set to premiere on Oct. 27, you need to throw a viewing party — you know it's going to be way too spooky to watch alone. Get your friends ready to return to Hawkins with these genius Stranger Things decorating ideas and awesome home decor inspired by Season 1. And don't forget to stock the fridge with Eggos and chocolate pudding.
In a perfect world, Tom Hiddleston would just show up at your Halloween party in full Victorian dress. Sadly, this world isn't perfect, but you can still use Crimson Peak to inspire a haunted house theme for your home. The key is to break out any and all unsettling portraits hiding away in your attic, the dusty china that's been in your family for ages, and all of the candles you can get your hands on. To create the effect that blood is seeping through everything, try these bleeding candles ($5) and add this gauzy drape ($6) to your mantle. Finish the look off with an over-the-top candelabra, like this one ($35) from Pier 1 Imports.
The Walking Dead
Living in The Walking Dead universe would be terrible, but there's no harm in visiting the walker-infested apocalypse for a little ghoulish fun. Start out by nabbing this cool zombie hands pillow ($27.96) from Pier 1 Imports, then commit fully to the theme with a shower curtain covered in blood splatters ($8.95) from Amazon. If you really want to impress your friends, nab this "Don't Open Dead Inside" decal ($7.99) for your fridge for maximum TWD fun.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Forget the eternal debate over whether or not this Tim Burton classic is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie, because it's both. That means that there's no need to wait until December to let your inner Jack Skellington loose. Start off with these black holiday trees ($14) straight out of Halloweentown, and then add a couple of these Jack pillows ($23) to your couch. Finally, this Sally light-up pumpkin ($10) will provide the perfect mood lighting for your annual rewatch of the movie.
American Horror Story
Thanks to the ever-changing setting, American Horror Story fans have plenty of themes to choose from come Halloween. One of the best ways to express your love for the show is through prints, like this one for AHS: Freak Show ($22) or this one for AHS: Cult ($13). Step up your game by adding a bigger piece to the mix, like this AHS inspired blanket ($20) and some sassy glasses ($15). After they see your effort, your friends will be hailing you as their Supreme in no time.
