Sunday Scaries: Last Minute Horror Holiday Gifts

The Sunday Scaries are upon us once again! Yes, as the weekend concludes, most of us feel an oncoming sense of anticipatory dread about the week ahead. Anxiety about work manifests itself into a feeling that’s known as the Sunday Scaries. However, we at Awards Radar are here to combat that, by taking back the name. Now, we want you think about a horror-centric piece on the site when you hear the term. So, let us continue on with another installment of the Awards Radar Sunday Scaries! Today, with only a few days to go until Christmas, we’re offering up some horrifically good gift ideas…

Yes, today is a special installment of the column. We’re just a few shopping says away from the holiday, so consider this a last minute good deed. Below are a few options to look into, fright flick wise. I tried to keep it simple and provide a mixed bag, but they’re almost all movies, so just know that. After all, that’s kind of my thing, right? Here now are four horror themed gift ideas to consider if you’re till in need if something scary:

Halloween (4K Collectors Version)

Halloween (1978) Cinematography by Dean Cundey

This classic (as well as its sequels) was recently released in 4K collectors versions. John Carpenter‘s original Halloween remains the best of the lot, so if you know someone who doesn’t own it, this is pretty much the ideal way to rectify that. More flush folks might opt for the entire franchise, or hopefully just some of them, but the OG is the must own of the lot.

Horror Movie Hall Of Fame 5 Panel Canvas Print Wall Art


This is actually one of the two presents I gave none other than Myles Hughes on his wedding. You can find it on Amazon here (we don’t get a cut or anything, that’s just where I grabbed it) or presumably elsewhere, but horror mavens should love it. Personally, having The Cabin in the Woods included is just a magnificent touch. If you know someone who appreciates this kind of wall art, it’s pretty epic. I know I fully expect to see it on Myles’ wall when I visit…

Spiral: From the Book of Saw


I championed this Saw sequel/spinoff earlier this year and still maintain that it’s the best horror movie of 2021. It works as both a Saw film just a fright flick all its own. My review here reiterates why it’s so good, but Spiral: From the Book of Saw is really something. Of course, instead of or in addition to Spiral, the other Saw entires are fair game for gifting as well, as many a box set are out there…

Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection (4K)


Finally, another collection for those who love the classics. A far cry from the Dark Universe that never got off the ground, this box set features the literal icons of the genre. Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and The Wolf Man, they’re all here. You really can’t go wrong with this one, especially for someone who digs vintage cinema.

Stay tuned for another Sunday Scaries installment next week!

The horror movie wall art is already one of my new favorite decorations I own, and I can’t wait to find a good spot for it in our new home.
