    1. A fog machine and fog juice to really set the bother-me-and-get-a-scare mood.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This machine puts out a pretty decent amount of fog. We used it on Halloween night and the children loved it. We didn't even have to use the remote control because the timing between fog streams was perfect." —Black Velvet

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is much more sturdy than the other stuff I've ever used. Also, if you stretch it the way it's meant, there is enough to do an entire large yard or home. We used a fraction of it and did our entire porch and bushes." —Jenni Dean

    3. A realistic cocoon corpse for flashbacks about when Jeepers Creepers was a bad choice for a neighborhood sleepover.

    4. A six-foot spider — and coordinating web — ready to serve as your new guard animal.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's lightweight, posable, and large. The legs and body are covered in black fur. The legs can be bent to hold whatever position you need. We were able to hang it out the window with some twine. It hasn't rained yet so I can't comment on the weathering but at the price I would buy again. Worth it." —Ms. L

    Get the from Amazon: spider for $25.99 and web for $13.99+

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Milo is about the same height as our female miniature doxie, though he is a bit longer than she is. He’s also underweight and stays cold but we are hopeful that with some TLC he’ll be a happy little guy. (He has an appointment with our vet for next week.) His big brother has already taken him under his paw and has taken to having naps with him." —Reecy King

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    7. A festive party soundtrack that you can pump and will really send 'em running in terror once they realize there's yet another fucking edition of NOW music.

    spirithalloween.com

    9. A set of solar-powered landscape lights you can use to spotlight your most gruesome decorations.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these lights! I bought them to light up the big beach ball eyes I put in my lilac bush for Halloween. I was sad that they had to charge for eight hours first (and it rained the first two days after receiving them), but even in the overcast, they charged up and work great!! I like that they come with mounting screws so I can mount them on the wall of the house when they are done being staked in the ground for Halloween to spotlight my Christmas decorations!" —Laura A. Eder
