This Halloween, leave the basic orange and black streamers, the boring jack-o’-lanterns and the rest of your cutesy decorations in the bin labeled “Halloween” tucked into the far corner of your garage. Because this year, it’s time to up the ante — and the scares — with some seriously scary Halloween décor.
Maybe I’ve watched too many James Wan films, but I, personally, have haunted dolls and jump-scares on the brain. And thanks to Amazon, you can pull off your very own horror film full of nightmare-inducing monsters roaming through a maze straight from hell.
Sorry, I’ll pull it back. Can you tell I love Halloween? And I’ll be honest with you: This Ari Aster fan (you know, the director behind mind-bending horror films Hereditary and Midsommar) freaked out a little bit scrolling through Amazon curating this list — particularly when I stumbled upon one, specific item that you’ll find at the very end of this gallery.
So, get your mind right — and your credit card at the ready — for this list of the best and most terrifying Halloween décor on Amazon. Happy hauntings, ghouls and gals.

Up your home’s “creep appeal” with this trio of apparitions who have definitely been up to some murderous tricks. The ghosts’ soul-sucking expressions are intensified by the eerily lifelike blood splatter on their translucent white mesh “bodies.”
If watching Psycho doesn’t fill you with horror, then you’ll have an odd fondness for this stained shower curtain. Use it in the shower if you dare, or it can be a spooky prop for a Halloween party.
R.I.P. whoever you are. This 5’4″ victim with white hair is headed straight to the morgue. Thank goodness he (or she?) comes with an artistically spattered bloody sheet so we don’t have to witness the cause of death.
At nearly 14-feet, this is one scary ghost hanging decoration. If you want a haunting statement without decking out your entire home, this one-and-done accessory will give you the dramatic look you want.
If gore isn’t your thing, this not-overly-scary Halloween decoration is a solid alternative. Enjoy a cup of your favorite witch’s brew by the fire, and you’ll be in the spirit without all the spooks.
Give Me a Hand?
Those are some loooong severed fingers. If you’re one of those people who goes all out on Halloween, you won’t even question these chopped-off extremeties.
If the spiderweb was child’s play, this creepy close decoration should do the trick. Add it over windows to block out light or in hallways to create a haunted house right at home.
Mini Chainsaw Massacre
Serial killer parents will definitely put this on their baby registry: Kid’s first chainsaw! Sized for children ages 3 to 6, this mini murder weapon makes chainsaw sounds and its bloodied chain even rotates around the rusty blade.
A 72-inch hanging corpse with LED skull eyes? We’ll take two.
Ah, the classic zombie-hands-on-the-windows Halloween dècor. Stick this on your glass doors or windows and a backlight for an extra-haunting touch.
For those who want more of a Texas Chainsaw Massacre feel. Hang this set of four strands on the ceiling, and anyone who enters won’t be able to sleep with the lights off again.
Feeling nostalgic for your long-departed ancestors? Introduce everyone to the sweet faces of these supposed relatives, and then reveal their terrifying demon natures by simply shifting the angle of the lenticular images.
Amazon user Brett Whitmarsh put this prop to good use: “Dropped a small Bluetooth speaker in the bag and used a “muffled” sounded effect. Next year I’ll add some sort of movement inside the bag,” he wrote in his review. Genius.
It’s weather-resistant, collapsible and is the perfect spot to hide out and spook unsuspecting trick-or-treaters. Go to the next level and add a skeleton inside.
Caught in the Tracks
Gotta love the variety of footprints with these removable floor clings. Plus, you won’t actually have to clean up pesky blood stains.
For less than $10, you’ll have yourself a 28-pack of 3-D bats. Cluster these on a wall inside the house, a window, or on your front porch for a more G-rated Halloween presentation.
Ah, yes, we’ve saved the best for last: The haunted doll that will now be in our nightmares tonight. This one is sound activated in case you really don’t want to be able to sleep again. Please excuse me as I sage my house.
