It’s that time of the year. The days are getting shorter. Night time arrives sooner, and the air is getting cooler. The children are excited because they are soon to have their hearts desire in candy. All of this can only mean one thing; it’s Halloween time, so get festive. Not only do you get to wear cool costumes, but adults also get a chance to decorate their houses. Some like to do the bare minimum while others make their front lawns look a movie set. Let the haunting commence.
This Lady Goes All Out
We’ll start things off with resident Maria Keeny. At 55-years-old, she and her son Conor don’t hold back when it comes to decorating for Halloween. As wild and crazy as the outside looks, the inside is even more creepy.
You can see she utilized a ton of blow up props and she has some skeletons hanging high. This is the true essence of getting festive for the holidays. If there were a contest on her block for best house, she probably would win every time.
Just A Spider, That’s All
Imagine waking up, looking out your window, and seeing a familiar white material. As you head outside to check it out, you begin to notice that the white substance is just really big spider webs. And to make it worse, there’s a huge spider on your house!
That would be a terrible nightmare. Thankfully, we’ve only described how this house looks for the holiday. There’s also another spider that wrapped up a human in front of the front door.
A Real Scare
This man isn’t afraid of zombies or monsters, there’s something else he’s being cautious about. This is a house that’s preparing for the disease Ebola. The outbreak was announced right before Halloween, so he took advantage.
“Dallas-area resident James Faulk displays his Ebola-themed Halloween decorations on October 26, 2014 in University Park, Texas,” Getty Images wrote. “Faulk decorated the front of his house and lawn to resemble the scene of the Dallas apartment where the first U.S. case of Ebola virus was confirmed.”
The Gang’s All Here
As you can see, the gang’s all here. We have Bone Jovi, Bon-O, and even Rolling Bones! This lawn mixes creativity, coolness, and creepy all into one. Anyone up for a kiss of death? Whatever you’re into, you might be able to find it here.
There’s even a skeleton swimming in The Dead Sea next to Dog Gone. And these decorations are easy, all you need are skeletons and old clothes. Add in the ideas for names, and you’re done.
An Epic Display
This decoration is spectacular. You’ve got your dinosaurs, and a King Kong look alike. What makes this even more impressive is that if you look close enough, you can notice that these are potentially homemade.
Most of the time, Halloween decorative objects are store bought. Not all are though, but you barely see the items that people made themselves. This person put their creativity to the test and ended up making something you’ve probably never seen before.
Webs Everywhere You Look
In 2013, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that parents spent around $1 billion on children’s costumes combined. That was over four years ago, and that’s not even including house decorations. By looking at this home, how much do you think was spent here?
Halloween sounds like a lucrative time of the year, and people don’t mind coughing the cash. Especially since it’s really for the kids. Even if a house isn’t decked out like this one, you can bet there will be at least a pumpkin somewhere near the household.
Kids can’t get enough of the Transformers. Whether its the film franchise, the toys, or the cartoon show, Transformers are a really hot commodity. The fact that this home has lifesize (or close enough) Transformers as decoration is impressive.
Waking up every morning and seeing these figures outside would be a pretty cool sight. Pay closer attention, and you can see that they are also holding skull heads by a chain. That’s a nice finishing touch.
Are you afraid of animals? See why next…
Dinner Is Served
Fake blood is everywhere in this haunting decoration. Those animals look like huge bears and werewolves combined, and they’re just feasting on a dummy body. They seem overly aggressive and like they could come alive at any moment.
Then, if you look over, you see a bunch of zombies minding their own business. Maybe the zombies and the animals were working together to trap some fresh food. Whatever the case, this is an excellent decoration.
Here Comes Chucky!
What’s creepier than a life-sized Chucky doll? Probably nothing. That is one crazy character that many are already afraid of in his doll-sized form. So a bigger one the size of a human can creep many people out very quickly.
Sometimes, real people will be inside these life-sized monsters and decide who they want to scare. First, they’ll appear to be lifeless, but then once they sense someone is already afraid, all they have to do is jump up and that person will be screaming at the top of their lungs.
Next, these dolls have found a worthy protector…
Beware Of The Spider
Having to be afraid of scary dolls is already enough, but then you toss in a vast spider right in front of them? How do you expect anyone with arachnophobia to work up the courage to ring this doorbell for some candy on Halloween?
And after you get past the spider, there is a doll couple right there. The amount of creepiness fluctuates with this house, and there’s no telling how kids will overcome this.
RIP With Creepy Dolls
At first glance, the standout ornament from this lawn is the Annabelle doll. This house is located in Norris Green, Liverpool in case you thought Americans are the only people to go full throttle on decorations.
Surrounding the Annabelle doll are a ton of RIP tombstones as well. Perhaps to indicate how many lives were taken by these haunting creatures. If you look at the wall near the front door, you will also see Freddy Krueger hanging on.
A Lot Going On Here
We’ve got clowns, floating heads, chained up skeletons, and much more at this home. And right under the locked up skeleton, you can see a severed leg. Young children will probably be terrified of this home come the 31st.
The scariest part is the clown that’s waiting for you by the front door. He’s standing there like he’s the last villain in a sci-fi movie. This person did a great job of making their house together for a holiday.
A Witch In The Neighborhood
This home’s theme is witches. Witches are a staple for Halloween, and many people love to dress up like them and use them for decorations. It looks like this witch in her shop is selling some goods. She has spices, potions, and spells.
By the front door, you can see more of her witch friends doing whatever it is that witches do. Stirring a big black bowl with smoke leaking out. The carved pumpkins are a nice touch as well.
Are You Afraid Of Clowns?
This home will attack you by your strongest fears. A lot of people dislike clowns for one reason or another. Perhaps their long smiles and creepy laugh is the reason. If you happened to be walking past this house with your kids to get some candy, you might want to skip it.
“But a clown doesn’t do anything but smile, so you don’t really know what it’s thinking or feeling. And all of those things are playing on pattern recognition,” said Steve Scholzman, M.D., an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
Look Out For The Extra Tall Butlers
This just in: tall, creepy-looking butlers will scare you to death. Look at all the bones lying around as proof. This home’s Halloween spirit is at a high with the witches, Jack-O-Lanterns, and skeletons everywhere. Some people don’t include that many ghoulish options.
The more ghouls, the better. There are even tiny people chained up by their hands, hanging from the roof. That’s a creepy and new added touch you don’t always see. This homeowner is welcome to decorate our place whenever.
Just Hanging Around
What’s stranger than a dummy that could pass for a real human being hung from someone’s roof? That, plus another creepy entity erupting from the chimney of the very same roof. This man couldn’t resist taking a picture of it.
It might not be on the front of the house, but do you even want to know what the front looks like after seeing the side? We hope that dummy isn’t supposed to be a replica of anybody.
Enter if you dare on this next home…
A Red Entrance
An Instagram user posted this photo of their home with the caption, “Our flood lights don’t work, so I hope the trick or treaters know we’re open for business!” We’re sure they know you’re open for business, but will they have the courage to approach your front door?
If they really want the candy, then yes, the kids will walk through this. However, if they have enough Snickers in their bag, you can bet that they might pass on this haunting entrance.
A Ghastly Family
The team over here was in a heated debate trying to settle something. We didn’t know if these characters were from a Tim Burton film, The Adams Family, or if they were real humans just posing for us.
Then we saw the skeleton dog. That threw everything off. Nonetheless, if you were to encounter this on a stroll down your block at night time, it wouldn’t matter what they were. They are still equally as scary and might give you nightmares.
Darth Maul The Protector
This New York City residence did a spiffy job at decorating for Halloween. It looks like everything is decaying around the area to set the tone except for the pumpkins. The haystacks add an extra element of spookiness.
After you notice all the initial arrangements, there’s a unique character higher than the rest of everything else. He is a sith lord and wields a double-sided weapon. That’s right, you’re looking at Darth Maul ladies and gentlemen.
Back when Barack Obama was the leader of the free world, he was known to put up some exciting things around the White House. If you recall, it was during his term that the House was lit up with rainbow colors. And when the holidays come around, he loved to participate.
The theme here looks like pumpkins and fall. Nothing too frightening going on here. To the bottom left there are pumpkins with Ninja Turtles drawn on them.
