The case could be made that horror movie fans are the most dedicated fandom around. They don’t need to wait for Halloween to get spooked. The ardent horror fan doesn’t need an excuse to explore the darker regions of cinema. They’re ready to get thoroughly creeped out, no matter the season.

Even though horror films are primarily about horror and fear (surprisingly), this is largely where the consensus ends. The plentiful buffet cart that is the horror genre is bursting with choice, with frights of the supernatural, psychological, zombie apocalyptic, shocking and gory to choose from. To celebrate what the genre has to offer, we’ve gathered together the best horror movie t-shirts on the web.

Whether you prefer your horror ghoulish, ghastly, or somewhere in the melting cauldron between, there's a t-shirt for you.
