Terrifying Halloween Records to Scare You Silly

As one of the most wonderful yet terrifying times of the year, Halloween brings people together through the ability to scare one another. It’s one of the best ways for you to have some fun and to make people feel a little worried, but it is by no means a reason for you to feel like you cannot have fun at the same time. If you want to make Halloween feel a touch more authentic, though, here are some terrifying Halloween records you will love/hate to read.

The Skeleton Army

Swansea University might be acclaimed as a top quality university, but it’s also a pretty damn scary place. You see, they managed to bring together a whopping 2018 participants to take part in the Jokers’ Masquerade, with everyone dressed up as terrifying as they could to take on the whole street surrounding them.

Once everyone was gathered, they underwent one of the largest “day of the dead” dancing session we have ever seen: truly something to be seen to be believed.

This follows on with the rather terrifying 15,458 people that got together to take part in the Zombie Pub Crawl, Minneapolis in 2014.

Dead Island

Another terrifying place to look is that of what we can only call Chucky Island – real name La Isla de las Munecas. It’s a Mexican island, and on it there are all manner of terrifying items that would make one shudder.

It’s got all manner of decaying dolls strewn around the place, making it feel so eternally haunting upon your arrival. It started in the 1950s, when Don Julian Santana Barrera lived on the island. He claimed to be haunted by a drowned girl, and wanted to appease her spirit by placing dolls on the island as a shrine to her. Yeah. Ironically, Barrera eventually drowned in the same lake she supposedly drowned in.

Lantern of Hell

The largest Jack-o-lantern in the world was rated at a ridiculous 821.23kg back in October 2010. It has yet to be topped, and was carved from the largest and heaviest pumpkin to create an utterly terrifying looking artistic lantern. It’s huge, it looks terrifying evil and it holds all of the hallmarks of nature progression that makes these kind of feats so impressive.

It’s terrifying and awesome in equal measure.

The Famous Scream


Interestingly a famous scream noise known as the Wilhelm Scream has been used in a whopping 133 movies, as well as in numerous games, theme park rides and more. It’s a terrifying sound, and once you hear it you will know exactly what scream we mean. It was used in all manner of old-school horror movies, and has even made it into popular films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Wars.

It holds the record for being the most commonly used sound effect in the movie industry.

With these spooky stats showing you how just prolific and terrifying the industry is, you can now hopefully see that Halloween isn’t just a fat for certain types of people: it’s for everyone. Are you going to take part this year? If so, what are you going as? Where will you be?

You never know: you might about to join another record-breaking celebration of Halloween!

YouTubers Fly Around New York on Star Wars Speeder Bikes

Every Halloween, you can always find people who take cosplay to a whole new level. Some people go nuts for this kind of stuff, and realy go that extra mile to make a mark. Most of the time, the best ones go viral very quickly thanks to good old social media. Well, this one was fantastic – a true testament to the creativity and charm of Halloween.

Getting Creative

YouTubers Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens are creative individuals anyway, and they tend to be quite cooky and creative on their channels as it is. So, they decided to start going a little crazier with each year, following on from the stupendous 2015 Magic Carpet that they pulled off. They’ve done a few crazy things so far, but this year they decided to jump in on the upcoming hype for the new Star Wars and invoke an old classic; a speeder bike.

They built a pair of absolutely bad-ass speeder bikes based on Return of the Jedi, and powered around the streets of New York. The bikes are a pair of Super 73 electric motorbikes, and they spent the best part of three weeks fitting them up. Alongside fiberglass shelling to make the look, they also added all sorts of awesome spoilers to really make them look the part.

Jesse rode with a friend, Carmella Rose, and they dressed as the classic Luke and Leia style from the Endor scenes of ROTJ, and it was an absolutely fantastic costume to pull off. They look great as they plow through the streets on a fantastic take on one of the best vehicles in movie history.

Meanwhile, Casey went for the classic Stormtrooper outfit and “chased” them through the streets of New York.

Going the Extra Mile

Thankfully, no “real” Stormtrooper showed up, and the police never had any issue with their awesome little stunt. Take a look for yourself and see the benefits of people getting creative at Halloween?

It’s a massive amount of work, obviously, but the end product is absolutely sensational. The amount of effort that has gone into the making can be seen, too and it’s a damn fine watch. As you can see, these are people more than happy to go that extra mile to build a fantastic set-piece.

While some people are happy to go as a whoopee cushion for Halloween, this trio have shown how us it could – and should – be done.
