13 Spooky Horror T-Shirts From Your Favorite Books And Movies

The air is crisp and pumpkins are ripe for carving. That means Halloween is right around the corner. Whether you’re headed to a party or a midnight movie, horror t-shirts always do the trick (or treat). These favorites will be the highlight of your Halloween wardrobe.

The best horror t-shirts for your Halloween

From old school to new-aged thrillers, Out of Print carries the best horror t-shirts. We offer vintage horror t-shirts, funny horror t-shirts, and everything in between. This October, Out of Print is also releasing a new line of horror t-shirts, inspired by Penguin Horror's new deluxe hardcovers which were curated by filmmaker and lifelong horror reader Guillermo del Toro.

Between all these options, we know you'll find the perfect fit for your Halloween festivities.

1. The Haunting of Hill House t-shirts

The Haunting of Hill House is a classic ghost story, but since Jackson's book was first published in 1959 it’s been made into two movies, not to mention a Netflix series.

Slip on one of our t-shirts before heading to any haunted mansions among the hills. Available as a unisex tee and women’s relaxed fit style in our newest Penguin Horror design, this novel’s chilling cover art will turn heads.
