It is Halloween season and that means Halloween parties. While everyone will be having the usual spooky affair, a more unique idea is to find a theme for your shindig this year. This is a great way to get your guest excited and involved in your party over others. One great theme one could use is to have a horror movie star party. At this party people can dress up as their favorite horror movie hero or villain and reminisce about their favorite horror movies. Here are some tips on throwing an awesome horror movie star party.
People come as their favorite horror movie Hero/Villain
Having people come as their favorite movie star opens up plenty of advantages for your party. The first advantage is getting your guests excited about the party before they even step through the doors. By the time they have arrived at the party they’ve spent time and effort dressing up and are eager to see others and guess their costume, as well as having people guess theirs. This will be a great ice-breaker and allow everyone to get to know people they probably would not have met before. As an added bonus, since you asked your guests to dress up specifically for your party, you could also and the incentive of winning a contest. Having a best dressed contest is another great way to get your party guests involved in the theme instead of just enjoying the decorations.
This part can lead to lots of fun. Now of course there is fun to be had in selecting which movie posters will be put up. Deciding on how many and where you would like to place them. One idea is to pick one movie poster for every room of the party and then decorating the room as the theme of the movie you chose. That way the even while the entire party has a horror movie theme, traveling into each room is like entering a different party. Another exciting idea is instead of using actual movie posters, ask some of your friends to help you recreate them! Whats better than having all your friends dressed up as horror movie costumes? Seeing them trying to act the part on a life sized movie poster in every room! This is guaranteed to be a conversation starter.

So if your still wondering how you decorate a room with a horror movie theme, here is a jump off point. Props! The first thing to do is to find movies that has memorable items that everyone would associate with it instantly, such as: Jason’s hockey mask, the “Scream” face, or the twin girls from “The Shining.” If you have props like that in its proper room, it will be incredibly effective.

Let’s not forget his signature stripes for your “Nightmare on Elm Street”-themed room. His stripes are so well known that it wouldn’t be necessary for them to be on a shirt. You could get striped table cloth or curtains, it will have the same creepily reminiscent effect.
