Top Five Halloween Pranks Part II

On October 30, 2011

Halloween is around the corner which means prank season has officially started. Need something to scare off the trick or treaters? Want to be devilishly mean to the little ones this holiday? Unlike last year's pranks, this round of fresh new ones will surely top off the history of all pranks.


5. Giving Out "Candy"

Instead of giving out the usual sweets this time, why not give out something that is totally out of the Halloween norm? Give the trick or treaters fake, plastic turds for treats. (


4. Trick or Treat

In order for this prank to work, your house has to have a window above the front door. Grab some buckets of goo or other sticky stuff and have one of your friends wait upstairs next to the window above your front door. When the trick or treaters come, open the door and yell "trick!" as your friend pours the buckets over them. (


3. Living Dead Scarecrow

 Nothing wrong with going back to the classics with this prank; Dress up as a scarecrow or another costume that covers up your body and face completely. Slouch down next to your front door as if you were part of a prop and wait for anyone to show up. When visitors ring the door bell, you come to life and scare them. (


2. Puked My Guts Out

For this prank to work, you need a lot of gross items that are realistic (such as puke, fake blood, ect).  Wear a costume that will cover up your face which helps to hide the "puke" better. When visitors come to get candy, give them their treats and in the middle of it pretend that you're getting sick and make puking noises. Fall down and puke out your special "puke". (


1. The Dark Room

Tape some black plastic over a bedroom doorway and take out the hallway lights. Without the hallway lights, your victim won't tell your door way is covered up with the plastic. Take them to the door way and let them walk into the "dark room". (
