Lights, Camera, HORROR TEES, at Cool! Merch

Ah, Halloween. Candy, costumes, and perhaps best of all, movie nights. Tis the season to huddle (and tremble) around your television screen — popcorn, chips, and chocolate in hand, to enjoy scares from a safe distance. The Halloween mood is gearing up, and we've got the ultimate horror tee collection to complete your scare-fest at Cool! Merch. (Read on for details on how you can win £25 off any products from our online store!)

Sadly, gone are the days of Blockbuster and sketchy VHS loans—streaming keeps the movie night alive these days. And I have a feeling your favourite horror movie icons would rock these t-shirts if they weren't too busy... finding their next victim or fighting evil. From classic slashers like Halloween to modern masterpieces like IT we literally have you covered. Because: clothing.

So what’re you waiting on? Join us for the scream-athon. We’re about to unveil the five coolest Halloween tees paired with their bone-chilling movie counterparts that we recommend you watch. 

🎃 Our Top 5 Horror Tees 🎃

(in no particular order)

Michael Myers on the Stairs

When we think of iconic and seasonal horror, Halloween reigns supreme. And it’s still going! 

With thirteen entries in the slasher series, there’s no time like the present. And hey, even if you haven’t seen any of the movies yet, it’s Halloween! No one would judge you for wearing it this time of year.

If you have seen the legendary chiller though, why not show your love for this film series with a t-shirt of the most bone-chilling moment - Michael Myers on the staircase? If the cinematic horror icon could be summed up in one picture, it’s this one. So much so they referenced it in Halloween Kills. After all, the best cinematic moments make for the coolest tees.

The Exorcist Poster

There's no possession flick quite like The Exorcist. Many have tried to top it and, at best, come moderately close (we’re looking at you Talk To Me). But nothing truly beats Peter Blatty’s masterpiece. And what better way to show your adoration than with our official Exorcist Poster tee.

With that striking lilac font and Father Merrin's haunting silhouette stood in the light of Reagan’s window, it makes for an unforgettable image (and scene). Plus, with The Exorcist: Believer out now, it's the best time to pay homage to the OG. 

Scream Slasher

The violence in this movie may be on the brutal side, but it's also a scream. Pun intended.

For those of you looking for something with a very simple formula (‘everybody’s a suspect’), Wes Craven's meta-take on horror rules is a must-watch. And with four films in the original quadrilogy not including the latest entries you’re bound to love at least one of them.

Featuring Ghost Face brandishing a bloody knife, and bordered by text of the graphic variety, our Scream tee is giving us pre-Y2K vibes. Suffice it to say, when you wear this, you’re ready for a slasher with a splash of dark humour. 

Derry, Courage to Return

When it comes to horror authors, Stephen King’s surname says it all. 

As one of the most prolific writers of the modern day, King has written a host of incredible books. His stories are no stranger to movie adaptations either – Carrie, The Shining, The Mist, Misery, Salem’s Lot, the list goes on! And yet, Stephen King’s IT continues to capture (and horrify) the imagination. More so now with Andrés Muschietti’s two-parter blockbuster.

Georgie’s wax paper boat, Pennywise, Derry – it’s all there! You couldn’t forget that summer, no matter how much you might want to.

Winnie the Pooh Blood & Honey

A t-shirt featuring the movie poster for the film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey

Not a fan of horror by the numbers? Want something a little edgy that defies the norm? Step out of your comfort zone and grimly embrace the unexpected with our Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey t-shirt. Because who knew the Hundred Acre Wood could be so dark and twisted… 

But hey, if you're craving horror with less intensity, we've got you covered with more spooky tees, minus the violence and R-rating. We recommend Beetlejuice, The Lost Boys, and Gremlins for alternate options. Who said movie nights have to be so serious?

Sizes range from S to XXL— browse our collection online and match your tee to your horror mood!
