Halloween is the best holiday in the history of ever. It's full of spooky decorations, haunted houses, and Hocus Pocus. Needless to say, I love a good Halloween meme to send my friends this time of year. That's why I found 29 funny Halloween memes to surprise and delight your senses this October 31.
From scary reminders of horror movies past, to laughs about "sexy" costumes and overdoing it on candy, there's a Halloween meme for everyone. The great thing about memes is that they're so democratic. Literally anyone with a good idea and access to the internet can make one. (Of course, that's also its biggest drawback. People don't realize that some of the memes are made of real people with real feelings, and they can be hurtful.) But Halloween memes that stick to pop culture references and universally freaky and/or hilarious seasonal experiences are all in good fun, because everybody's in on the joke. So if you're looking for memes to share during this, the spookiest of seasons, look no further!
These memes are totally share-worthy, and take the best of the holiday and mash it up with what's popular right now. It doesn't matter if it's from TikTok or Twitter, just so that it is fun and friendly.
1. He Comes In The Middle Of The Night
You say your name is "Jake?" That's totally a 1980s horror story villain name. You're either a jock who murders kids in tents, or you're coming back to slaughter your whole family, and oops, a whole bunch of people were in front of your machete. I see you, Jake from State Farm. (I hope those dudes have life insurance.)
2. Seriously, Though
The answer is always the dog. Always.
3. I'm Like, A Makeup Expert Now
It's a valid argument. I mean, have you seen the makeup jobs roaming the streets on Halloween? This is why masks were invented.
4. He's Eternal. Literally.
Gary Oldman wins the vampire game every time. Sure, R-Pat was sexy, but there's just something about Oldman's Count that warms my cooling, dying, heart.
5. It's Like They Don't Care At All
He has issues. He's working on them. So he's a little aggressive. So he's a tad obsessed with his sister. OK, maybe it's not great.
If you haven't seen Hocus Pocus at least 100 times, are you even a millennial?
I am honestly watching this again tonight, and I am not even a little ashamed to admit it. It's the best Halloween movie in the history of the world. If you disagree, you're wrong. Honorable mention to Casper.
7. Why Is That Sexy Again?
I will admit to donning a few "sexy" costumes in my day. Sexy Lumberjack was a hit. I was a sexy piggy bank, which wasn't so well-translated, and I've been a sexy Mr. Met.
I've never considered a box with arms very sexy though. Lesson learned. I am saving my Prime containers.
8. Standing Ovation
This marks you as a winner.
I will judge the crap out of you if you're handing out anything other than candy to kids. I get it if you have a separate bowl for kids who are allergic to things. But if your "go-to" is a toothbrush or pack of balloons, you are not the best.
9. I Mean Honestly, I Get It
There are just so many Snickers bars. I know that sharing is caring, but eating Snickers bars alone in the bathroom with the light off while reading on your iPhone is self-care, am I right? (Even if they did misspell "off" in this meme, the sentiment is valid.)
10. I Look The Same
Don't tell me magic isn't real. Don't believe me? How does your iPhone work? See? Magic.
She looks so happy here. In the before place.
12. Maybe Your Mom Folded Them?
Oh Michael Myers, you creepy murderous bad brother, you.
13. A Twist On The Hyper Local Movement
Beware of breadcrumbs and dropped candy leading to dark forests.
14. But... I Made Plans
We've all been there.
15. I'm Never Sleeping Again
I'm just going to go brew a pot (or 20) of coffee right about now.
16. And Here We Are Again
Admit it, you're already looking at ornaments on Amazon.
18. This is legit terrifying.
I failed stats.
19. Who's the darkness? You are, cutie!
You are definitely the darkness.
20. As an English major, I approve of this message.
This is valid.
21. I can relate.
I will take your Raisinettes and give you my Milky Ways. It is a fair trade.
22. Felt haunted, might hide under bed later, idk
No caption necessary.
23. It me.
It's part of a balanced year.
24. Aww, it's too pure.
Send this one to your partner, and hear the groan.
25. What a boneheaded joke.
This is a Halloween meme wrapped in a dad joke.
26. It seems normal to me.
I mean, they were there first.
27. I will celebrate in July if I want to.
Smashing pumpkins for sure.
28. Too soon, Karen.
Let me have my holiday.
29. I should've written it down.
I'll just bring wine.
