Halloween isn’t just for the little ones! How about a Scary Movie Party for Halloween or Friday the 13th? I grew up watching the classic horror films with my cousins. Although my tolerance for today’s horror films isn’t what it used to be, I still love watching the classic Freddy, Michael and Jason thrillers around Halloween time. So with some DIYs and fun costume props, I’m excited to share how you can create your own Scary Movie Party too!

Scary Movie Halloween Party
Like usual, I wanted to set the stage with a backdrop. I started with a simple wood plank backdrop and draped a Black Netting wall decoration in front for texture.
I covered the table with burlap, a Deluxe Creepy Cloth Wall Decoration and Rusty Barbwire Cord. I also set up a Collapsible Faux Hay Bale with a Chainsaw.
I stuffed a blue coverall with padding and propped it up, topped with a Michael Myers Mask.
I also made a creepy scarecrow for the table. You can see my tutorial HERE. 🙂
I also painted a hockey mask and displayed it on a crate with the Creepy Lanterns I made. I displayed my Scary Movie Directional Sign along with more barbed wire.
Using my Cricut, I added some red vinyl words to Bloody Wooden Planks Wall Decorations and hung them up along with a Butcher’s Meat Hook.
I filled large black popcorn boxes and added a “Toe Tag” for fun.
The original Nightmare on Elm Street may be my favorite scary movie. So of course, we had to have Freddy!
With the Deluxe Metal Freddy Krueger Glove, Freddy Sweater and Hat we had the perfect Freddy costume. EEK! So creepy!
Side note: Truth be told, that Michael figure lurking in the corner of the room spooked me more than once while I was setting up! Like I said, I love scary movies, but I can’t handle them like I used to. And there was no way I was going to leave the props out after sundown. I loved creating all the elements for this party, but this set up came down right after photos were snapped! LOL!
Do you have a favorite scary movie? I’d love to hear from you!
