Halloween is almost here! Time to dress up the kids and grand-kids in adorable costumes, ply them with sugar, and watch them bounce off the walls! And best of all, scare the pants off them! I mean, how many other holidays specify “tricks” as well as treats in their mandate? (Except maybe Easter, if you’ve got a bunny phobia. Bunnies aren’t always as cute as everyone claims they are)And it all starts with the house. It’s time to get decorating, and here’s some inspiration from a bunch of people who really go all-out for Halloween!

1. Keep back The Walking Dead.

The addition of characters from the show really sells this display.

2. A (Tree)house of Horror.

This house displays its favorite Simpsons Halloween tradition with style.

3. Carve all of the pumpkins!

4. Party Rock Anthem

While I’d hate to live beside this house, I give them 100% for the effect. The faces even move in sync with the song!
Next: “You know what would be cool? A shipwreck right through my house!” said the one guy who can actually pull it off.

5. Because why not?

That is a bonkers-awesome amount of detail!

6. Catch the last bus out of there!

All aboard!

7. A terrifying Pumpkin King.

“With a wave of my hand and a well-placed moanI have swept the very bravest off their feet.” —The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas is a popular theme. Prepare for some keen attention to detail!

8. “This is Halloween, everybody make a scene!”

Top marks for recreating the iconic curly hill!

9. Too many spooky eyes!

10. Pop culture breaking through!

Want monsters to break through your fence, but zombies are too cliche? Why not use King Kong and dinosaurs instead?

Get ready to witness the one house I could never walk up to, no matter how good the candy is.

11. The stuff of nightmares.

The photo filters on these images just increase the creep-factor.

12. NOPE!

I do not do spiders. Just looking at this image gives me the creepy-crawlies. UGH. No candy is worth that!

13. Monster house.

This is genius. How has no one ever thought of this before?
