Gift Ideas for Horror Fans 2020

If there is one thing I know about movies and cinema culture, it’s that the bigger a movie fan you are, the more likely it is that you are one of those people who likes to collect merchandise and memorabilia related to your favorite films and characters. Some would argue that fans of horror movies in particular are, on the whole, very avid memorabilia and novelty gift collectors of everything related to the movies they love the most. If you or somebody that you know is a big horror buff, then you might be wondering what to get them for their birthday, or even for Christmas, if you’re planning ahead. Check out the list below that highlights some of the best gift ideas you can find on the web for horror fans.


1. Jason Voorhees Mask



Jason Voorhees, the main villain of the Friday The 13th movie franchise, is without a doubt one of the most iconic characters in horror history. Jason’s defining feature is the hockey mask that he wears to cover his terrifying undead face, and this amazingly detailed replica is a great gift to give to someone looking to cosplay, or even to keep as memorabilia!


2. Horror Killers Clock



This is the perfect gift to give to somebody who is currently in the process of redecorating a room in their home. The easy to read clock face is surrounded by pictures of some of the most iconic horror villains in movie history including Hannibal Lecter, Pinhead, Chucky, Leatherface and Ghostface from Scream.


3. American Horror Story Poster



It would be fair to say that American Horror Story has completely revitalized the genre for a TV audience, taking it out of theatre screens and putting it back in to everybody’s home to scare them on a weekly basis! The most recent season, My Roanoke Nightmare, was really ambitious in its multi layered storytelling, and included some of the scariest and most gruesome moments of the entire series to date!


4. Freddy Krueger Trick Arm Party Prop



When you think about iconic horror movie characters, one of the first names on everybody’s list is always, without a doubt, Freddy Krueger. The concept of a monster who catches you even in your dreams hit a horror nerve with a lot of people, and that’s why the Nightmare On Elm Street movies are still as popular today as they were back when they were first released. The scariest part of Freddy was always his razor-sharp finger gloves, and you can add a jumpy scare to any party by installing this fun trick arm prop that will give people a fright when it moves to grab them!


5. The Walking Dead – Book 1



It would be fair to say that only Game Of Thrones is more popular around the world than The Walking Dead, one of thebest examples of TV horror out there today. If you’re looking for a gift for someone, and they have only ever watched the on-screen version of the story, then why not buy them the first graphic novel of the series?


6. Jaws Earrings



Looking for something special and cool for a female horror movie fan in your life? Look no further than these insanely cool hanging earrings that display none other than the terrifying head of the one and only Jaws! This shark is solely responsible for generations worth of movie lovers never wanting to go into the ocean again, and the iconic score for Steven Spielberg’s 1975 movie has become synonymous with any kind of dread and fear in any situation!


7. Blood Bath Mat



Thanks mainly to Alfred Hitchcock’s shower scene in the iconic 60s horror movie Psycho, bathrooms have long been used a prime location for murder and mayhem in many scary movies ever since. You can create your very own murder scene in the bathroom of your choice using this really cool bath mat that portrays a bloody footprint design.


8. Freddy Vs. Jason Poster



It’s not often in the world of horror that two iconic characters from two separate franchises get to interact and meet on screen, but this happened in a big way when Freddy met Jason! The film definitely had its critics but it also had a lot of fans too, so if you know somebody who loved the movie, then buy them this poster so they can put their fandom on display.


9. The Art Of Horror – Illustrated Book



There is no doubt that the best aspect of horror is the amazingly grotesque and frightening visuals that it spawns. This wonderful illustrated book takes a deep dive into the history of horror and the iconic images that are associated with the genre. A really great gift for any horror fan.


10. Horror Style Bloody Letter Magnets



These fun magnets are a great gift to give somebody who loves horror movies to make creepy messages for unsuspecting victims. With these scarily designed letters, you can write a message for your roommate and listen out for the scream that comes out of their mouths when they wake up and read it!

Any self-respecting horror fan surely has plenty of DVDs, but this box set is pretty incredible! It contains 200 classic horror movies from early hits like Nosferatu to some of the innovative Japanese horrors that became mainstream in Western cinema culture.
