Disgusting Halloween Props

Bloody. Gory. Gross. Intense. Those are only a few of the words to describe the disgusting Halloween props you'll find here!

If you're having a Halloween party or setting up a haunted house, these will definitely make it memorable! How will your guests react when they have to get their caffeine from a blood red IV bag? Gross!

We'll also tell you why so many of us like to be scared, revolted and horrified at least once a year.

If you want disgusting Halloween decorations and props, you've come to the right place...and they are disgusting -- not to mention gruesome!

Don't say we didn't warn you.

Caution: This Page is Not for the Squeamish

Gory Lifesize "Lifelike" Decapitated Head

Gruesome Halloween Prop

This one gets our vote for the creepiest Halloween Prop.

Realistic looking dead head with wide open eyes and bloodied neck, this is sure to scare your guests.

Head measures approximately 11.5" high x 8.5" wide. Comes with metal chain for hanging.


Halloween Party "Finger" Food - Serving Suggestion

Gross out your guests with this Set of 5 Life Size Realistic Vinyl Severed Fingers. Place them on a vegetable platter or hors d'oeuvre tray or use as drink stirrers. The fun you can have with these is limited only by your imagination!

Warning: Watch Out for Children

Younger children often are developmentally unable to distinguish between reality and fantasy. They are impressionable and can be traumatized by being scared.

Many psychologists believe that a childhood fright can be the source of a lifelong phobia.

Exercise caution when decorating or dressing in something realistically frightening for Halloween when there are children involved.

Why do So Many of Us Love the Ghoulish?

If you're not a fan of gory Halloween props and Horror films, you may wonder why some people find this sort of thing entertaining. It seems counterintuitive.

Yet, there is a powerful attraction in the macabre. People experience fear when scared. Fear is an unpleasant emotion. However, in the context of watching a horror movie, handing over a ticket to a frightening amusement park ride, or attending a Halloween Haunted House party, one can feel fear while knowing they are, in reality, actually safe. It provides an opportunity for us to face our fears (and mortality) in a controlled environment. That lets you experience and learn how to cope with such feelings and situations and view them as less threatening.

Being scared also brings on a state of arousal - a faster heartbeat, sweaty palms and other physical reactions, accompanied by an adrenalin rush. This can make you feel more alive and be experienced as exciting and pleasurable. Scary experiences can also help you realize what is really important to you.

Besides, "safe" horror also provides an excuse (or opportunity, depending on your point of view) to cling to each other -- which is why the genre is an especially popular dating choice.
