Darkest day of the year must-haves

Posted on

Horror aficionados everywhere it’s time to get positively thrilled, because today marks the winter solstice, which means it’s the darkest day of the year. You probably see daylight as something that’s too drab and boring, with vibrant illumination spreading rays of sunshine on otherwise spooky and alarming objects. However, if you relish the sudden slip into madness you receive from the moment the sun goes down then you know that most of your favorite horror plots should have taken place on this day.  Needless to say, if you’re a ghoulish creature who craves this extension of darkness, the onset of daunting chills, trickling rain and gusting wind, then it’s a perfect excuse to curl up and watch a few spooky movies while admiring your horror accessories and get yourself into a suspenseful mood for all thing’s horror-ific.

Light up the darkness horror style

Even if the blackened darkness of nightfall has overpowered your surroundings that doesn’t mean that you need to be forced to spend your evening in the shadowy gloom. Why not decorate your crypt with a few horror accessories that embellish the right amount of spook-tacular glow without shedding too much light. If you want to creating some gruesome green glowing effects then a can of glow in the dark spray may be able to highlight the hazards within your darkened conditions. If you’re afraid of ruining your wallpaper then perhaps you can simply change all of your indoor light bulbs to black lights instead. After all, the ultraviolet purple light has an eerie-sistable touch when it radiates across the room. And while you’re at it, why not finish off with a few flickering flame candles to embellish your chilling crypt.

It’s time to get cozy

Whether you want to add a gruesome touch of warmth to your crypt or you simply need a snuggle buddy for all the frightening horror scenes on your flat screen, horror blankets are much-needed horror accessories for the darkest day of the year. While you’re at it you might as well extend your comfort across the couch with a hair-raising pillow that compliments the weather and your inner love for all things blood-curling. Then unwind your devilish darkest day of the year with a scalding hot bath mixed with horror bath bombs and spook-tacular horror soaps.

Rainy evenings call for horror movie binge-watching

horror movies

You can hear the rain water cascading against your roof shingles. Glancing between the curtains, a gust of wind lifts the maroon-hued leaves off the ground like an acrobat awkwardly lifting their partner during some sort of freak sideshow and all while the skeleton-like tree branches tap, tap, tap against your mirror-like window on a gloomy, dark, autumn evening. Mid-November weather is the perfect backdrop to the unusual, grotesque events that inspire all the most pleasurable horror movies. Not to mention, it’s the perfect time of the year to curl up and let the spine-chilling temperatures steer your freakish nature into spending multiple evenings binge-watching all your darkest desires. It’s about time you awaken your horror lovin’ spirit and brace yourself for a season of alarming horror film binge-watching.

Clown around with a little Killjoy

If you’re unfamiliar with the Killjoy franchise you’ll need to find the extra time to juggle all the adventures of the demonically summoned doll. Brought back to life using black magic, this ghastly clown is determined to take revenge, in five feature-length films, on the person responsible for killing his owner. Bizarre, yet absolutely delightful!

Jeepers creepers, where’d you get those peepers?

Although the most recent Jeepers Creepers film did not do as well in the box office, there’s no arguing that the first two horror movies possessed a rather elevated, hair-raising plot sequence about a mysterious, demonic creature that will run a course through your nightmares… almost as good as it runs people off the road. So, cuddle up in your coziest fleece and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the catchy cadaver tune.

Santa claws his way into your horror movie schedule

With the Christmas season creeping up around the corner, horror lovers must do everything possible to keep their devilish disguise throughout the holidays. Why not raise some spirits with a horrific comedy about the jolly, fat man? He’s making his list and you better pray you’re not on it.

Autumn is the time of year where leaves fade from a bright yellow to a scarlet red before eventually falling to the ground and coating it like a rusted pathway. Temperatures cool, days become shorter and at times there is delicate mist that lingers amidst the naked trees with an airy breeze swaying them from side-to-side. In other words, autumn is the most spook-tacular time of year. There is no better way to celebrate the arrival of the autumnal equinox (September 22) then by grabbing yourself some ghoulish goodies and starting a countdown to the most treasured day of the year for horror fanatics. Here are some horror accessories that you surely need before the last leaf hits the ground.

Horror accessories needed for the perfect night in

By this time of year, we’re sure you have already caped your crypt with some gruesome decor, but there are always a few handy horror accessories that you could use when summer fades to fall.
