Halloween is finally upon us! So what's the best way to get in the spooky spirit? A trip to a nearby haunted house will definitely freak you out, but you can get the same feeling just by reading these scary quotes. Lots of these eerie sayings are from your favorite scary movies and Halloween books, so you'll definitely recognize a few Halloween quotes on this list. You'll also notice a few famous names—and experts in everything spine chilling—on this roundup, including Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe. Once you read a few of these excerpts, you'll be inspired to get geared up for October 31. There are so many ways to begin celebrating, and we recommend kicking things off by making your own costume, crafting some wicked DIYs, and baking seasonal sweet treats. 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 adorn them with one of these scary quotes (or make a whole quote "patch" on your porch). Doing so would definitely make your front porch stand out from the rest of the neighborhood—and maybe startle trick-or-treaters just a little bit!
