If you’re a Halloween decor collector, you know how serious the horror merch game is as early as August. Spooky shoppers call out a “Code Orange” alert the moment the latest in seasonal decor drops, because it tends to sell out immediately. Even before physical Halloween store locations or Target aisles open, midnight online restocks get scooped up—just ask anyone who has tried unsuccessfully for two years to secure one of those 12-foot skeletons.

Here’s our round up of the best movie and TV-themed decor available at online Halloween and horror retailers, featuring merchandise from Stranger Things, It, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and Nightmare Before Christmas.
