Ready for spooky season? October 31st is just days away, and our shopping carts are full of Halloween essentials for the holiday festivities!

After last year's somewhat of a Halloween hiatus, Halloween 2022, which falls on Monday night, is bringing back the fun. Whatever your Halloween weekend plans are — whether you're heading to the movie theater, watching Hocus Pocus 2 at home, a haunted house, a scary Halloween event, trick-or-treating with the kids or hosting a small Halloween party with close friends — ET has created the ultimate guide to prepping yourself and your home for Halloween night.

We've gathered last year's popular costume ideas (we're looking at you, Squid Game), celebrity-inspired costumes, candy buckets, decorations, Halloween-theme face masks, pumpkin-smelling candles and streaming guides on how to watch more spooky films and shows.
