If you’re a freak for freaky horror movies, chances are you’re spending the bulk of October burning through your scary Netflix queue and seeing every horror film you can get your hands on.

You could honor the end of the Halloween franchise by dressing up as Laurie Strode. You could choose from some of 2022’s horror hits and dress as the casts of “X,” “Pearl,” or “Bodies Bodies Bodies.” You could throw it back to the ’90s and pick a costume from “Scream” or “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” or go even more retro with a costume from “Jaws,” “Psycho,” or “The Birds.” And if you really want to scare the pants off your friends — or make them laugh with your dedication to the task at hand — we have some ideas about how you should act on Halloween night to give everyone a bit of a fright.
