Stranger Things fans, this one's for you. You can deck your walls with Joyce Byers' famous alphabet-light communication device to wow your dinner party guests.

When someone approaches your door to trick or treat, this ghoulish guy will greet them with blinking red eyes that glow and a sinister laugh. There's a motion-detecting sensor that hangs beneath the skull to trigger the action and make your front door seem haunted.

Make sure you have some place high to hang this from. It's over 5 feet tall.

It's not too late to score a spooky fog machine and give your Halloween setup the ambiance of an old, forgotten graveyard at dusk.

This one has a remote control and colored LED lights, which means they aren't cheap Halloween decorations, but they'll match the mood of your event. Fog fluid is sold separately.

After you've got the perfect Halloween party decorations, the last thing you'll need for your Halloween home decor is some appropriately spooky sounds. Luckily, the ever-evolving Alexa has her own set of Halloween tips, tricks and treats. Just ask your Echo device to "tell me a spooky story" or "play spooky sounds" and listen as she recites perfect Halloween limericks and serenades you with the sounds of creaky floorboards, screams and drafty old houses.

There are also Halloween games and jokes available.
