10 Halloween video ideas

1. Party invites

Share your event details a little differently this year with a unique Halloween video invitation. Just combine a Halloween stock video background with skeleton stickers, glitching animated text, and spooky background music to create the perfect video invite.  

2. Horror movie quotes

Create a video sharing your favorite horror movie quote with a professionally made video template. Customize with a dark color scheme to suit Halloween, add pumpkin and skeleton stickers, and type in your horror movie quote.  

3. Prank reaction videos

Trick or treat! Secretly set up your smartphone and record yourself scaring a friend, co-worker, or family member. Create multiple scare clips, combining them into a montage video of your epic scares or epic fails.  

4. GRWM videos

If you’re getting ready for a Halloween event, create a quick ‘get ready with me’ video to share on social media. Record yourself doing your makeup and getting into your costume. You can even share spooky stories while you’re getting ready to keep your viewers engaged for longer.  

5. Scary video game highlights

Roundup your biggest wins or funny fails in your scary gameplays to create entertaining highlight videos. If you have a gaming YouTube channel this is the perfect type of content to stay on trend during the Halloween season. Just combine your gaming clips, add sound effects, and share directly on social media.  

6. Baking tutorial

Showcase your culinary skills and seasonal pumpkin spice recipes in a baking tutorial video. Whether you’re an experienced baker or just baking for fun, create an engaging video to share on TikTok or Instagram Reels in just a few clicks. Record yourself with an overhead shot, sharing tutorial steps, mention ingredients with animated text, and all required measurements. Don’t forget to add a funny voiceover too.  

7. Pumpkin carving tutorial

Are you a pumpkin carving pro, or have you never carved a pumpkin before? No matter your skill level, create a tutorial video on how to carve a Halloween pumpkin. This style of content is perfect for entertainment as well as learning. Add animated text, pumpkin stickers, and autocaptions to make an easy-to-follow tutorial.  

8. Trick or treat highlight video

Share your past trick or treat memories in a highlight reel for social media. Combine yearly events, add spooky background music, and ghostly animated text to create the perfect vlog or highlight reel.  

9. DIY Halloween decoration tutorial

Want to get creative this Halloween? Showcase your crafting skills with your followers in a step-by-step DIY tutorial. Using a bird’s-eye view, record your DIY project like pumpkin masks, slime, lanterns, and more. This style of video is perfect for not waiting to show your face on social media.  

10. Zoom meeting background

Make your Zoom meetings more engaging and on-theme by creating unique virtual meeting backgrounds for Halloween. Using stock videos like dark night skies and eerie forests, haunted house stickers, and ghostly special effects, create a Zoom background that will leave your viewers spooked.
