When it comes to the holiday spirit, it seems everyone saves their decorating energy for Christmas – it’s not often that people go all out for any other occasion. Well, with Halloween just around the corner, we decided to prove that there are a few October diehards out there. Enjoy these impressive Halloween homes.

1. The Pumpkin Palace
This home is one of the subtler of the bunch but if you look closely, you’ll see well over 100 neatly carved pumpkins lighting up the night. Though the other houses might be a bit more chaotic in their approach, imagine the time it took to carve each and every Jack-O-Lantern!?

2. The Haunted House
While most of the homes on this list go for a more cartoon-ish appeal, this spooky place takes a legitimate crack at the classic haunted house. Sure, by day it’s probably a nice suburban home but with some creative lighting, they’ve managed to turn their upper-middle-class home into an eerie site.

3. The Neighborhood Favorite
Here’s a video of a lady in her neighborhood that has earned the reputation of dominating when it comes to Halloween decorations. Relaying mostly on lights and a few props, this is a pretty impressive display of holiday cheer.

4. The Casa de Cartoons
Speaking of cartoon-ish, the owners of this home definitely went for the novel look over the authentic. Showcasing a twelve-foot Homer Simpson, Sponge Bob Square Pants and a pair of life-sized Incredible Hulks (moonlighting as Frankenstein), there is nothing subtle about this Halloween home.

5. The Vegas Holiday
Whether this is a quaint suburban home or a tacky Vegas hotel, we may never know but it’s impressive nonetheless. Who knows what flamingos and frogs have to do with Halloween but what is certain is that the decorating team behind this crazy Halloween house certainly left their shame at the door and went all out for the holiday.

6. The New York Nightmare
You know you’ve done a substantial job of decorating when you can’t even see the house itself! Yep, this New York City residence definitely went all-in for the holiday when they slathered their tiny lot with more decorations than square footage.

7. The House of the Living Dead
It’s probably a more impressive site by night but this place has done a great job of covering such a large lot with plenty to see. Aside from the impressive amount of skeletons, zombies and tombstones occupying the home, you have to wonder where they keep that 6-foot tarantula for the other eleven months of the year.

8. The Hungry House
Leading the Less is More campaign, this Halloween home doesn’t have a lot going on but it’s most definitely one of the more ominous of the bunch. Boasting nothing more than a couple stylish Jack-O-Lanterns, the fact that this home looks alive (and out to kill you) is reason enough to make this list.

9. The Tiny Terror
Judging by the picture, there’s not a lot of room at this small home for extensive decorations but that doesn’t seem to limit the visionaries. Getting the most bang for their buck, this humble home has enough Halloween eye candy to compete with the big hitters.

10 . The Suburban Graveyard
Making the list as the last private residence, this friendly home turned eerie graveyard is a site to see. Though it’s nothing more than a collection of store-bought tombstones, you’d have to be pretty brave to be caught there after dark.

11. The Corvinestilor Castle
Of course, you can’t have Halloween and haunted houses without Count Dracula and the iconic castle that started it all. Topping the list for most impressive Halloween decorations is the Corvinestilor Castle in Transylvania because it doesn’t need decorations to make it any spookier than it already is – the legend and the architecture speak for themselves.

    Wow, those houses are impressive! I wonder how much their electricity bill is for the month of October? Now, I’m a huge fan of decorating for the holidays, but I can’t imagine going this extreme.

    My favorite houses have to be #1, #2 and #8. #1 would definitely creep me out the most if I went tricker-treating by it! Check out this blog I found on the Top 10 Strangest Holiday Displays. http://www.elightspot.com/top10strangestholidaydisplays.aspx

    I happened to see your post and got a chuckle out of what your wrote about #4 and #5 as that is my house! ;-)

    You might grab an image from a more recent Halloween – and you’ll see that I’ve added SpongeBobSquarePants to the right of Homer Simpson – D’OH! ;-)

    Happy Halloween,
    alek

    P.S. This is just the warmup for Christmas – surf on by after Thanksgiving to check out my Crazy Christmas Lights – double D’OH!

    • Rob Jones says:

      Thanks Kat – although we’d have to be your “friend” on FB to see the pics, I fear. You can upload them to Picassa or Flickr, and then share them. I’d be happy to post the link. :-)

  5. KatMcG says:

    :-D That album should be open to everyone

  6. Mike M says:

    #4 and #5 are my favorite. I went to Alek’s website too. It looks amazing. I am so impressed :-)

  7. Roger says:

    Hi Rob,

    Love your picks and your descriptions. I’m writing an article on amazing Halloween home decorations for a website. Do you have contact info for any of the homes you show here that you could please share? I do have the contact info for Alek at Komar.org. Thanks.

    Best,

    Roger

    Hi ,
    I would like to know where these houses are located. And if there are more to see around NYC area.
    Thanks

    Awesome pics and very nicely done houses! My girlfriend (of over two years) and I are complete Halloween nuts ourselves. I just recently became a new home owner in Iowa, we spent a pretty penny on our first Halloween and our decorations, animatronics, pumkins, etc…not a whole lot of trick or treaters the first time around but our hopes are high for “word of mouth”. One of our daughters friends from school (she’s 10) was walking away after getting some goodies and said “Patience (her name), don’t go in there!”. I took three videos of Halloween night; evening, dust and night…I have yet to upload any of them. Anyways, great jobs!

  11. Rebecca Morton says:

    Hi,

    I am working on a new design now for TLC called Four Houses. I am trying to find homes in the NYC area that get dressed up for Halloween. Do you know the NY address of the Halloween home you feature? I would like to contact them.

    Many Thanks!

    Rebecca

[...] I remember carving pumpkins as a kid and how it felt like it too FORRRREEEEVVVVEEEERRRRRR.  The last time I carved was a few years ago and that feeling of forever didn’t change.  Imagine then, if you will, just how long it took these people to carve over 100 pumpkins so that they could be used as decorations.  I wish I could see a close up of all of them to see if they’re all different.  They probably are.  (via Build Direct blog) [...]
