The second most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner. We’re talking about Christmas, which is still cool, but it’s certainly no Halloween. October 31st is when everyone lets loose and dresses like the most obscure pop culture character they know for cool points. You may also get some horror gifts for Halloween, like an earlier and more hardcore version of Christmas.

If you’re shopping for a special someone this Halloween or just want to treat yourself to something a bit macabre for Christmas, we have you covered. Below you’ll find all sorts of horror gifts, ranging from video games to costumes and everything in-between. They may or may not also be haunted, but that’s just a risk you’re going to have to be willing to take.

14. Halloween Complete Collection Blu-Ray

With 2018’s Halloween releasing to high expectations (and a sequel), what better way to coincide with The Shape’s return than with a binge of all the previous Halloween movies?

While it’s true that not all are what you would objectively call “great” movies, these are all a part of horror history worth celebrating. Except for the second Rob Zombie attempt, but heck, that’s included too anyway.

Bear in mind that you may actually be better off collecting the franchise piecemeal as this complete collection is a little on the pricey side.

24. Silent Hill Figures

Pyramid Head Figure

Though Silent Hill as a property may be silent for all intents and purposes, its fans certainly aren’t.

This lamp inspired by Pennywise’s iconic (and deeply unsettling) balloon is up there in terms of sheer novelty excellence when it comes to horror gifts, even if perhaps isn’t the brightest light in the world.

Do you really want a shining bright night light for the clown himself, though? Plug it into a USB port and find out.
