Ready for spooky season? October 31st is this weekend, and our shopping carts are full of Halloween essentials!

After last year's somewhat of a Halloween hiatus, Halloween 2021, which falls on Sunday night, is bringing back the fun. Whatever your Halloween weekend plans are -- whether you're heading to the movie theater to watch Halloween Kills, a haunted house, a scary Halloween event, trick-or-treating with the kids or hosting a small Halloween party with close friends -- ET has created the ultimate guide to prepping yourself and your home for Halloween night.

We've gathered this year's popular last-minute costume ideas (we're looking at you, Squid Game), candy buckets, decorations, Halloween-theme face masks, pumpkin-smelling candles and streaming guides on how to watch Hocus Pocus and more spooky films and shows.
