As Halloween seasons rolls in like an ominous fog, your Instagram feed is going to get a spooky makeover. Soon, it will be pumpkin after costume, haunted house after Halloween party, and you're going to want to get in on that action. But one thing that might slow you down is having to come up with a clever and scary Halloween Instagram caption for each of your posts.
Instead of sitting there with the caption curser blinking as you search your brain for another way to say "Halloween vibes," you should consider lining up a few awesome captions ahead of time. That way, when you take that perfect October picture, you don't have to stress before posting. We all know the struggle of a great picture without a great caption.
Which is exactly why I've taken the liberty of putting together a compilation of quotes that you can use for your photos. There's no need to get overwhelmed by the Halloween Insta game. There are so many awesome quotes from movies and literature that will make any seasonal picture look very Halloween editorial. Here are a few of my favorites, ranging from classical literature to slasher horror films — you know just to cover all the bases.
