Spooky billboards haunting L.A.'s skies this Halloween...

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride 2015 billboard
If there's one time of year when you can indulge your inner child, and all your horror fantasies, it's Halloween, when everyone has the chance to dress up, eat as much candy as they like and go a little crazy.

The streets and skies of Los Angeles also go a little wild at this time of year, with lots of scary, sinister and villainous outdoor ads haunting the city skyline.

One annual staple of this spooky season have been the billboards for the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride with their familiar Jack O'Lantern face and other apparitions peering out at passersby.

This year's outdoor offerings were spied along La Brea Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard from september 19 to October 11, 2015.

If you're a fan of the immersive event that takes place in Griffith Park, be sure to also check out all these L.A. Haunted Hayride billboards from previous years.
Halloween Horror Nights Michael Myers billboard
Another regular supernatural presence at this time of year has always been Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights, although this year there seems to have been far fewer billboards filling the skies. Maybe the theme park's frightful festivities have become so popular they don't need to advertise as much.
Halloween Horror Nights Walking Dead 2015 billboard
This 'Michael Myers' ad creative from 1978's classic Halloween movie was spied along Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood on September 19 and The Walking Dead billboard was spotted along one of L.A.'s freeways on October 2, 2015.

If you like these ads, be sure to also check out all these other Halloween Horror Nights billboards from previous years, which have featured ads for iconic horror movies and TV shows like The Walking Dead, Alien vs. Predator, Evil Dead, Silent Hill and more, helping to promote their corresponding themed rides, mazes and attractions at the park.
Carrie killer musical experience billboard
Another killer billboard standing out in the run up to Halloween this year is this eye-catching ad creative for the Carrie Musical Experience, based on Brian De Palma's iconic 1976 adaptation of Stephen King's supernatural horror novel.

This Carrie musical billboard was snapped on September 23, 2015 along Sunset Boulevard, and if you like this, you can also enjoy these Carrie movie remake billboards from 2013.
Queen Mary Dark Harbor 2015 billboard
Another creepy ad creative this year freaking out passersby was this billboard for The Queen Mary's Dark Harbor festivities and was photographed along Pico Boulevard on September 19, 2015.

Meanwhile if you want to keep the screams coming this Halloween, Six Flags Fright Fest has the answer for you with the amusement park's death-defying, jaw-dropping rollercoasters, guaranteed to turn you white with fright.

This billboard for the theme park was spotted along La Cienega Boulevard on October 11, 2015.
Cheshire Cat Disneyland Halloween billboard
On the other end of the spectrum from all the bloodcurdling terror, brain-eating undead and paranormal activity, there's always this fun collection of Halloween Time billboards from California's Disneyland.
Hook Disneyland Halloween billboard
Featuring Disney's iconic animated villains from films like Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and 101 Dalmatians, these Halloween-themed ads have an added villainous twinkle this year to incorporate the park's 60th diamond anniversary festivities.

These 'Cheshire Cat', 'Captain Hook' and 'Cruella de Vil' billboards were spotted around the streets of L.A. from September 17 to October 11, 2015, and if you like these dazzling examples, be sure to compare them to previous Disneyland Halloween outdoor ad campaigns.
