Go ahead, read them...if you dare.
Halloween is finally upon us, and odds are you're feeling ready to get into the spooky spirit. The question, of course, is how?A trip to a nearby haunted house will definitely freak you out, turning on your favorite horror movie or serial killer movie will give you a serious case of the heebie-jeebies, and even just scrolling through Instagram this time of year can yield plenty of eerie, spine-chilling images. But if you really want to bring out your dark side, there's no easier way to do so than by reading these scary quotes.
Here, we've selected the ones that we think will give you a fright (in the very best way). Most of the sayings we've included are pulled straight from your favorite scary movies and Halloween books, so you'll definitely recognize a few of the quotes on this list. You'll also notice a few famous names, including Stephen King, Dante Alighieri, and Edgar Allan Poe.
Of course, once you're actually in the mood for the holiday, you'll want to begin prepping! There are so many ways to start celebrating, and you don't have to wait until October 31 to do so. We recommend kicking things off by making your own costume (and your kids' costumes!), crafting some wicked DIYs, and baking a few seasonal sweet treats too. And don't forget about the pumpkin decorating that needs to be done! Whether you decide to paint your pumpkins or carve your gourds this year, you could even choose to adorn them with one of the scary quotes from our list (or make a whole quote "patch" on your front porch).
