Some people may love Halloween for the sweet treats and dressing up in costume. As much as you look forward to those too, your vibe is all about creeping it real. Scary movie marathons, haunted houses, and spooky pop-ups are totally your jam, and that's why you need some clever horror puns to use as captions for the Halloween season.

Believe me, I get it. I've been trying to post a spooktacular photo every day this month. It helps that I've been to the I Like Scary Movies pop-up for Instagram-worthy content and scary events like the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride and Halloween Horror Nights. Now I have a ton of pics to fill my feed. The only thing I'm missing are creepy captions to pair with them.

I've noticed that the pics I post with a punny caption tend to get more likes than ones I post with a generic or cute saying. It's scary good how much people love a good horror pun, even if they're hard to come up with on your own. Don't let the writer's block frighten you, though, because I'm here to help. The next selfie you want to post at a haunted maze or in your spooky costume will have a perfect pun to go along with it. Just use any of these 35 horror captions from the list below and have a hauntingly good season.
