Frightening Fonts for Halloween Designs

By Chris Mullen, October 2, 2015

October is one of our favorite months. Winter is coming, and Fall is here. But what makes the month eerily special in our eyes is Halloween, the return of The Walking Dead and two very special birthdays (my wife and I). Continuing our special series, Font Fridays, started by a former employee, Jessica, we collect some killer Halloween fonts from various online font collections.

These fonts are excellent for Halloween cards, prints, flyers, posters and web graphics.

 

Death Branch Font

The above spooky font, Death Branch, made for Halloween combines dead trees and typography.

 

 

Friday 13th Halloween Font

Take advantage of one of the most recognized names in horror by using this Friday 13th font. If your kid’s name is Jason, this is an opportunity you just can’t pass up.

 

 

Nightmare on Elm Street Halloween font

After Marvel’s Wolverine, Freddy Kruger is the next most notorious¬†clawed figure in Hollywood. This nightmare font creepily commemorates one of the most revered horror franchises in cinematic history. RIP Wes Craven.

 

 

The Walking Dead Halloween Font

Obviously, we should include this font dedicated to The Walking Dead. It’s not an actual font with letters and characters, but the clip art is awesome.

 

 

Blood Halloween Font

No Halloween font list is complete without dripping blood.

 

 

True Blood Font

Speaking of blood, we encountered this True Blood font that any HBO fan will love.

 

 

Shaun of the Dead Halloween Font

Shaun of the Dead is a hilarious British comedy/horror film by Edgar Wright. This font immortalizing the movie has an outstanding type selection that many designers will probably enjoy utilizing.

 

 

You Murderer Font

A very popular download, You Murderer is another bloody font type but smeared rather than dripping.

 

 

The Addams Family Font

Another iconic and recognizable type set belongs to the franchise The Addams Family. This font, Fiddums Family, will work with many types of designs for Halloween based cards, posters or prints.

 

 

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Font

Considered one of the “50 Greatest Shows of All Time” by Empire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a fun show tackling numerous teenager and societal issues through paranormal story lines. The show also boasts a marvelous gothic logo and font collection emulated with Buffied¬†at DaFont.com.
