Halloween is just around the corner. And what better way to welcome it than using a scary ringtone? A Halloween-themed ringtone will put you and everyone around you in a festive but eerie mood, perfect for the upcoming holiday. In light of that, here’s a list of some of the best Halloween ringtones you can download.
1. This is Halloween
Any Tim Burton movie could be considered a Halloween classic. However, The Nightmare Before Christmas is by far the most popular one. We all know about Jack Skellington and his beloved Sally. And although the whole movie is somewhat bizarre, it’s so comforting and heartwarming in the end. Aside from that, it has an amazingly unique soundtrack. This is Halloween is the title song from the opening of the movie, and it’s easily one of the most recognizable songs in the world. So, it’s absolutely perfect as a Halloween ringtone.
2. Halloween Movie Theme
When John Carpenter’s first Halloween movie came out in 1978, it was an absolute hit. The fact that it got ten more sequels and remakes is a testament to that! Apart from its compelling and exciting plot, the Halloween movie is also famously known for its incredible soundtrack. John Carpenter composed and wrote it himself, and it perfectly embodies the terror and intensity of the movie. The theme song also works great as a Halloween-themed ringtone. In addition, you can prank your friends into thinking Michael Meyers is just around the corner!
3. Spooky Scary Skeletons
Spooky Scary Skeletons is a popular children’s Halloween song performed and written by Andrew Gold in 1996. Although it features plenty of ‘zombie shrieks’ and ‘shrilly screams’, this song is actually quite cheerful and jolly. It talks about skeletons being misunderstood and wanting to socialize despite their apparently scary appearance. How fun is that? It’s easy to see why this song is popular, especially on Halloween. Also, since 1996, it has seen quite a few modern remixes, so make sure to give those a listen, too.
4. Toccata and Fugue in D minor
If you’re a classical music lover, then Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor is the perfect ringtone choice for you. This 18th-century masterpiece is probably one of the most outstanding compositions ever. As it was written for the organ, it’s bold and powerful, even terrifying at times. It will give you all the goosebumps! Let’s face it — everyone knows this tune. That’s why everyone will appreciate it as a ringtone, even if they’re not a big Halloween fan.
5. The Twilight Zone Theme
The theme song from The Twilight Zone is definitely one of the best Halloween ringtone ideas. The Twilight Zone was a popular show in the 1960s, and it was a combination of horror, fantasy, science-fiction, and thriller. Although not that many people know about this show today, everybody’s heard its theme song. It’s by far one of the most impactful theme songs ever. The tune perfectly epitomizes the black-and-white franchise and all of its eeriness.
6. Double Trouble
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, then you’ll surely appreciate this ringtone idea. The Harry Potter franchise is known for its magical and eerie soundtrack, so it’s no surprise that it’s on this list. Still, although we do love the original Harry Potter theme song, Double Trouble makes for the best Halloween ringtone. This song was first featured in the 3rd installment of the franchise (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and it’s perfectly reflective of the Halloween mood.
7. The X Files Theme
Although you probably already know it, The X Files is a legendary TV show about the unusual and the supernatural. It was a sensation when it first aired in the 1990s, but it’s just as popular today. And even though we love the plot and the characters, the amazing soundtrack is what made an impact on today’s pop-culture. The X Files theme song is spooky and alienesque, and it makes for a great and effective Halloween ringtone. It’ll give heebie-jeebies to anyone who hears it.
8. Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice
We couldn’t help but feature another Tim Burton creation on here. All of them are iconic, so even stopping at two was hard! Beetlejuice is a Halloween movie that people of all ages can enjoy. It’s joyful and funny at times, but it’s also undeniably spooky and scary. You can’t go wrong, no matter which song from Beetlejuice you choose as your ringtone. And if you prefer the sound effects over songs, why not go with the legendary Beetlejuice summoning scene.
9. The Addams Family Theme
What better way to celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year than with the spookiest family in the world? The Addams Family, although it is notorious and bizarre, is one of the most beloved fictional families ever created. From the actual walking hand to a Frankenstein’s monster-type butler, everything about this family is unique. The same goes for their theme song, which makes for an awesome Halloween ringtone.
10. Wolf Howl
All of the ringtones we mentioned above are legendary songs and themes, but what about other types of ringtones? For instance, a howling wolf sound effect is a cool way to set an eerie mood. It may scare people around you, as they might think there are actual wolves nearby. Still, it’s a great way to celebrate Halloween in all of its glory.
11. Movie Scream
This ringtone is not for the faint of heart! A sudden scream will definitely make you jump and look around you. It’s a great way to prank your friends and scare them out of their wits. They’ll never see it coming! However, be careful. Someone might think the screams are real and panic. So, we suggest you use it only for a while, as it might get old really fast.
12. Ghost Sounds
In contrast to the intense ‘scream’ ringtone, you can go with ghost sounds, as they’re much more subtle, and most likely won’t frighten anyone. They’ll probably even elicit a chuckle or two from passers-by. In addition, there are so many ghost sounds to choose from — screeching, moaning, booing, white noise, you name it.
