One of our favorite things about Halloween are the outrageous home decorations that seem to pop up out of nowhere. Every neighborhood has one of “those” houses; AKA the ones that seem to be in relentless competition for the most festive house award. To say the inhabitants of such houses are dedicated is a gross understatement, and we have nothing but respect for their enthusiasm. So, we’ve collected 15 of the most over-the-top Halloween decorations we could find. Enjoy!
1. Giant Spider
Wow… Looks like the enormous arachnid apocalypse is finally upon us. We just hope they have home insurance.
2. Spider Invasion
… And as the giant spider apocalypse continues, even the babies lust for human blood.
3. Nightmare Before Christmas Characters
This family deserves nothing less than a personal doorstep visit from Tim Burton himself!
4. Crash Landing
Sadly, these decorations are usually short-lived because the government comes to clean them up immediately.
5. “Pop is Dead”
They forgot “Here lies Yoncé. She (didn’t) wake up like this, and now we can see her halo.”
6. Huge Prehistoric Awesomeness
It would be awesome if they had the Jurassic Park theme playing from hidden speakers as people drove by. Totally bad@#$.
7. Monster Silhouettes
“Honey, do you ever get the feeling that the neighbors are watching us?”
8. Zombie Takeover
We thought sleek, modern houses like this one couldn’t get any more sinister. We were wrong.
9. Simpsons Extravaganza
We can’t help but wonder if they like the Simpsons…
10. Colossal Pumpkin King
How on Earth was this built?! We’re pretty sure the reason that man is smiling is because he somehow avoided almost certain death while erecting that monstrosity.
11. Ghost Buster Central
“If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call?”… Not these residents, they’ll just make everything more strange.
12. Inflatable Nightmares
A halloween horror headline: “Oxygen-deprived family perishes after blowing up too many holiday inflatables.”
13. Get the Cops Called to Your House
Yeah, we know “less is more,” but this one may be too realistic for certain neighbors. For those of you wanting to duplicate this, don’t be surprised if the po po show up.
14. Pumpkin Palace
If this isn’t a fire hazard we don’t know what is.
15. This is Halloween
Last but not least, the ultimate Halloween decoration money shot. This is our favorite, by far.
But don’t go anywhere yet! We have to give a shout out to our creative followers: April Victorine and her family created this awesome haunted carriage scene completely from scratch. The skull pillar was created by our friend James Kyle who used chicken wire, expanding spray foam and milk jug skulls…
