10 Halloween pranks you have to try out this year
Next week is October (and I have done absolutely nothing with my life). Time to start bringing out your inner demon. Halloween is my favourite holiday because we all get to dress up and have heaps of fun. I’m not talking about the candy, I’m talking about pranks. I LOVE scaring people, it’s so great.
Check out these 10 Halloween pranks you HAVE to try.
1. CLASSIC SCARE
The classic prank. Scaring a family member or a friend while wearing a creepy af mask. I’ve hidden behind doors and under beds and it’s hilarious. Watching your victim get a good scare is so satisfying. Also watching Ellen DeGeneres scare celebrities is brilliant.
2. LITTLE GIRL SINGING PRANK
What you need is a Bluetooth speaker connected to your mobile phone. Hide the speaker somewhere in your victim’s room and when they’re ready for bed, start playing the sound of a little girl singing. Start off with the volume low but gradually increase the sound until your victim is scared shitless.
3. GIANT SPIDER PRANK
This one only works if you have a pet willing to help you. Go to the $2 store and see if you can find a spider outfit. Why? Because your dog can wear it and scare the crap out of your family members. Or just leave a big spider toy lying around, whatever works.
4. NO CANDY PRANK
This one’s for those trick or treaters. Buy a scary prop (skeleton, witch, zombie) that screams whenever someone gets near it. Place a bowl of candy in the prop’s hands outside your front door and watch those little kids get the fright of their life.
5. THE SCARY MAZE GAME PRANK
Don’t lie, you’ve all fallen for this one. Scariest five seconds of my entire life. Obviously, you won’t tell your victim it’s called the scary maze game. Just set it up and watch them die inside.
6. RUBBER SNAKE PRANK
Hide a rubber snake anywhere in the house (fridge, bed, couch) and watch your victim scream. Simple, yet effective.
7. OUIJA BOARD PRANK
DON’T EVER DO THIS. Because this is how literally every horror movie begins. Ask the ouija board some questions with your friends and have a family member make noises or bang loudly on the wall afterwards. Trust me, I’d be out of there so fast.
8. BOBBING FOR APPLES PRANK
Hosting a Halloween party? Make sure you have the classic bobbing for apples game, trust me. Place a scary mask at the bottom of the barrel so when your friends go to bob, they’ll get the scare of their life.
9. THE STRANGER PRANK
If you have a partner, this will work well. When they’re asleep, fix your side of the bed to make it look like you’re in there. Place a scary mask facing your partner. Wake them up and when they turn to look at you, they’ll scream. Or hit you. Or both.
10. THE CONJURING NUN PRANK
If this ever happened to me, I would disown everyone. Dress up as the scary nun Valak from ‘The Conjuring 2’ and stand in the corner of your victim’s room. Make a noise to wake them up and watch them pee themselves in horror. Even the gif freaks me out. Bye.
No need to thank me, you’re welcome. May you all have the most creepy Halloween. And remember kids, NO OUIJA BOARDS.
