Morrisons Halloween 2015

Just when you thought (or at least we did) Morrisons Halloween 2015that it was a little too early to expect information on the Halloween products that will be offered by UK supermarkets this year, this comes in.

The lovely people at Morrisons are eager to get Halloween 2015 underway, and why shouldn’t they be? They obviously know that this year is going to be a big one.

So without further delay here’s what we have so far, and we’ll add more info when we receive it.

Morrisons Halloween 2015

We’ll start, as the press release does, with the makeup.

There’s not too much to see right now, but the main thing to note is that the prices are very low. This suggests that they’re going to be very competitive when it comes to painting people’s faces on a budget. And it definitely puts them in line with their main competitors in the Halloween supermarket arena – Asda.

No, the kits don’t look the most exciting things. But with all the amazing YouTube makeup tutorials out there, you could no doubt put these simple tools to good use.

Halloween Costumes

The costumes too are looking most competitive price-wise though we can only see a small selection here. The glowing trident and wand definitely caught our eye, as did the projector torch (we love pretty things that light up). And you can’t argue at 70p for a treat bucket – it would be rude not to buy at least a couple. Filling them will be the hard bit!

Halloween decorations

There’s not an awful lot to write home about as far as decorations are concerned yet. This is because Morrisons are still keeping a majority of the ghastly delights they have planned for secret. The initial info does give us a small taste though.
The lawn skeleton looks worth investigating – lets hope it’s big enough to be convincing and cause some scares!

Morrisons Halloween food

I’m feeling pretty peckish at the time of writing so my opinion may be a little biased but I’d go for any of these snacks right now. The witch shortbread and gingerbread mummies look like winners. There’s also some ‘decorate yourself’ cookies which are always popular, giving kids the chance to get crafty and personalise their own food.
It’ll be great to see what else comes along in terms of cakes. Last year Morrisons had some great Halloween muffins. And all supermarkets are upping their game in recent times with more creative treats to act as a centrepiece for your Halloween spread.

We’ll update this post with more Morrisons Halloween news as it comes.

    Hello, good to see the season of Halloween start to kick in again. Thank you for posting that news about Morrison’s and hopefully it will be much better in the decoration department as shown there. I was wondering if you could tell me about any others news regarding decorations to do with ASDA, The Range etc.?

  2. Mr Halloween August 6, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    Hi Harry,

    We have no news as yet from Asda. However, we will (as always) be posting any information about what they will be selling as soon as it comes in.
    We have high expectations for this year!

    When do you reason we will out about asda

  4. malcolm August 9, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    i sure hope asda deliver this year last few years have been a bit of a let down

    the range had a good stock this year but i branch stock was a bit sketchy i asked them to order a prop that they had on display but wouldnt sell me the display one but could order one in for me well 10 months later i dont think they are going to phone 🙂

    this year i have made a laser vortex machine and hope to be using that with some projection material suspended to give the illusion of floating ghosts above the garden

    Hopefully

    Hi Malcolm.

    Could you please send us some pics of the vortex machine? It sounds amazing!

    As for ASDA, we’re hoping to have the first video and write up done by the last day of THIS month (August). That’ll give you a couple of weeks to save up before the stock starts hitting the shelves.

  7. malcolm August 21, 2015 at 4:45 pm

  8. Harry August 27, 2015 at 12:37 am

    Hello,

    Will the preview be up on the 31st of August and is this year American influenced by having better props and also is there any life sizes? Just thought I would let everyone know that my
    B and M Store is getting their halloween stuff out over the weekend from Friday to Sunday and I guess it will be the same for the majority of the stores!!!!!

  9. Mr Halloween August 27, 2015 at 10:42 am

    Harry,

    I’m afraid the preview is going to be a little delayed because the tube strike meant that the press event had to be moved. We’ll still get the info up as soon as possible though.

    Regarding B&M, it would be great if you could let us know what they have. We don’t have a store local to us…

  10. malcolm August 27, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Good to hear bm are setting out early
    The range had a good show last year to be honest

    Is it just me or is anyone else not super excited for Halloween this year for those that display stuff anyway

    The weather during the so called summer months has been pretty piss poor this year the last few Halloweens have been very good and I’m a little apprehensive this year on planning anything big

    Maybe seeing stuff in the shops will kick me up the butt a bit

    I’ll email the vortex build pictures over tonight

    Hi Mr halloween, i have just come back from The Range and have bought some halloween stuff that has just started to go out in their store. It’s not the full range yet but I did buy an animated Butler with a tray for under £35.00 (not as good as my asda one but the price is reasonable) xx

  12. daniel September 3, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    Yeh, I went to both b&m and the range, and I am actually very surprised at how much they have, I just went to the range and spent about £100 and got a life sized animated shaking coffin, a lifesize very detailed hanging warewolf, and a few hanging severed feet and hands on chains. I also went in to B&M and spent the same amount of money and got a buried alive skeleton, a pair of animated talking vampire interactive busts, a load of chains, an animated talking hanging witch and a black and white clown mask

    They had actually just started to get the stuff off the pallet in the range, and on the pallet there was some very detailed farmer with rats inside his rib cage, am animated talking tree face, a white strobing hanging gouhl, a hanging grim reaper, and the butler with the tray that eyez was talking about, and two props I bought Las year, a 1.8m tall turning witch and a turning head zombie,
    I strongly recomend , Mr. Halloween, that you should go and have a look at these stores and see what they have to offer

    Oh yeh , and I asked the guy who was marking up all the summer stuff with clearance stickers, and he said the halloween stuff should be out in the next two weeks.

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for the tip.

    Each year we approach all of the high street brands and ask them for info on their Halloween products. Generally speaking, if you don’t read a post on our site it’s because we didn’t get a response.

    Sadly in the case of B&M, none of the site contributors live near one of their stores. Otherwise we’d be there with bells on!
