Halloween 1990s Style | Halloween | Seasonal | Community | Fun | BoiCGH

Halloween is fast approaching and we continue our nostalgic glimpse into Halloweens past.

Let’s take a step back into the 1990s.

The 90s really were filled with some real seasonal spookiness!

One of the most iconic things about Halloween in the 90s was, without doubt, The Simpsons – Treehouse of Horror (1994) episode No.5 which was The Shining, becoming one of the most loved and funniest episodes of all time.

One of the most memorable and fun things of the 90s was the cereal aisle intro of, you guessed it – FRANKEN-BERRY BOO-BERRY and COUNT CHOCULA! and life was never the same again.

Macdonalds food chain released limited edition McBoo Pails, tiny replica Halloween buckets released in conjunction with the movie release of The Book of Life which went on to become collectibles.

Red lipstick and cleavage. You all remember Elvira dominated our screens in her sexy black gown selling anything and everything on mainstream commercials from root beer to Coors Light.

Were you sold?

Here are just a few of the jawdropping seasonal movies which were released in the 90s.

Halloween – The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)

Halloween – H20 (1998)

The Frighteners (1996)

The People Under The Stairs (1991)

Scream (1996)

Scream 2 (1997)

Casper (1995)

The Sixth Sense (1999)

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

Bride of Chucky (1998)

Halloweentown (1998)

Hocus Pocus (1993)

The Ring (1998)

Candyman (1992)

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Urban Legend (1998) one of my personal favorites !

The world went SCREAM crazy. With the movie releases of SCREAM, shops fast sold out of any and all Scream related merchandise.

So guess who half the school turned up as for the Halloween ball of 1996? ha Ghostface you’re it!

Pumpkins got a whole lot more artistic themed with the introduction of store bought Carver Kits which promised they were ‘safer than kitchen knives’ (but honestly looked just as deadly), complete with mini scoopers and tiny hacksaws creating some truly fun designs.

Stores released sales of full size door and window CLINGS which could basically cover the whole house in some seriously spooktacular vinyl wrapper.

To the delight of many parents out there, life like, full size, plastic pumpkins went on sale yey. Quick easy and no mess for the kids.

Back in the days before Google was Google and it was just another search web feature. The platform introduced their very first Halloween themed seasonal puzzle called a Google Doodle on the homepage. A lot of fun for the younger Googlers (and doodlers) out there.

Check back in next week as we approach the millenium!
