What to do if your usual Halloween activities are canceled this year

Posted on

The idea of Halloween being canceled due to the threat of novel coronavirus is becoming increasingly terrifying and even though the grim holiday is still many weeks away, as cases continue to climb, under-the-surface tremors are indicating this year will be a Halloween unlike any other. Nevertheless, regardless if there won’t be any trick-or-treaters roaming the neighborhoods, COVID-19 can’t stop you from being the haunt to your home! 

Watch an abundance of horror movies

While a true fan of the genre embraces all things spooky year-round, there’s no arguing that autumn presents an added opportunity to binge-watch your favorite horror films. Whether it’s the slight chill in the air, the changing colors of the leaves, or the added hours of darkness, it’s time for you to make your list of timeless and new-age motion pictures and begin slaying each title over the next eight weeks. 

Do you need some recommendations? Enjoy some less-known names such as Killjoy, Misery, and The Creeps.

Buy horror collectibles online to reenact your favorite scenes

We’ve all likely put ourselves into the shoes of the some of the most malevolent villains of the genre, and with Halloween creeping up and fewer activities to look forward to, one of the best things you can do to remain in character is to improvise these roles by using your collection of horror keepsakes and costumes. Maybe you feel the plot sequences of some movies could have gone in a different direction or perhaps the props used weren’t gruesome enough? Regardless of your reasoning, buy some horror collectibles online and set the stage for the ultimate horror fan reenactment with your favorite ghastly peeps from within your social bubble. 

Visit a horror landmark in your area

Many of us aren’t privileged enough to live near a major genre monument, however, after a little research and digging you may find there are a couple of landmarks a day’s drive away. If your residence is isolated away from the horror wonders of the world, hop online and take a virtual tour or walk through your city’s oldest cemetery for a spooky vibe. 

Decorate your crypt

There’s no better way to embrace the supernatural colors of the seasons than illuminating your crypt with some shocking decor! While it’s quite likely that you already buy horror collectibles online to fill bedroom and bookshelf, there is an assortment of other relics that can give your home that grim charm. With everything from horror-themed pillows and blankets, to signature artwork and body part props, you’ll have everything you need in the comforts of your home to celebrate Halloween in style!
