The Best Set Of Halloween Lights Ever!

Jason Voorhees wears some NICE mascara on his hockey mask!

I was in CVS last night and could barely contain my excitement when I stumbled upon this set of musical Halloween lights or "Luces Miscales de Dia de Los Muertos" as the box informs our Spanish speaking friends. I already have an official set of licensed Friday the 13th lights along with some Texas Chainsaw Massacre ones as well (which you can see here), but I absolutely had to pick up this generic set from China. First off, I love how the Jason Voorhees hockey mask looks on these ones. Each mask has a nice 'n aged dirty look to it with just a hint of red mascara around the eyes. What... you didn't know Jason enjoys to put mascara on his mask to show a little warmth? Well now you do.

The other reason is because that this light set plays music when turned on. This was the real selling point for me because of the particular song they chose for these lights. I couldn't believe what I was hearing when I turned them on, and you won't either. Allow me to show you:

Yep! They actually decided to put John Carpenter's "Halloween" theme song with this set of Friday the 13th hockey mask lights! It's too bad they don't have a set of lights for Michael Myers, because I'm sure it would play "ki ki ki, ma ma ma" when turned on if they did. I know the two killers wear masks 'n all, but come on... the differences between the two are quite obvious. One's a psycho hockey player, the other is a psycho William Shatner.

This is now officially my favorite set of Halloween lights and they're going to keep my eyeball bubble light nice 'n company. At 13 bux (*gasp* a strange pricing coincidence or perhaps CVS paying a subtle nod to the Friday the 13th series?) for a set of 10, I'm seriously tempted to go back and buy some more of these.

I would go and get at least one more set. That way you have a spare incase thise set quits on you. What is the chance of finding these again with that song?

Go for it.

hey, rog, im in your area! (i think) which cvs did you find this at?

Do they light up without doing that, or do you have to press the button each time?

Wait a minute, are these battery-powered?
So Halloween lights are not.. like Christmas lights.. are they.. o_o

Just be careful of those Christmas/Halloween lights that are made in China, sometimes they're bound to short circuit easily when you least expect it.

RoG, you might want to check out Big Lots as well, they've got some cool stuff already in the way of decorations. Nothing as cool as this though :P

The Halloween theme shows up on a lot of products in the "totally ghoul" line (I realize that this is a kmart brand, but the exact same products are sold at discoutn stores under different branding.) There are led spotlight strobes at Rite-Aid that play the tune, even though they are specifically billed as being lightning simulators. Maybe a deal was struck to get the song for cheap?

At biglots and kmart I found some "horror instruments" garland for 6 bucks. It's kind of flimsy but still very cool as it's life-sized knives and cleavers strung on a line.

I also saw something at kmart today called the "bush monster" that I'll have to get. It's a small black box with a set of glow eyes on it. You stuff it in your hedges and when someone walks by it shakes the hedges violently while lighting the eyes and making growling sounds. At just 8 bucks it's VERY cool. Also kmart officially carries the Jason Vorhees animated figure now. It's the same old thing that's been out (at spencers) for years, but adding it to the totally ghoul line assures that it will now be readily available and more importantly readily available for kmarts annual 75% off sale after halloween. ;)

Crossing franchises or not, that's awesome! Definitely going to have to see if the ones around here have them too!

If the company does a follow-up product, here's hoping it's little shrunken Tom Atkins heads, all of them with impeccable mustaches and instead of the Carpenter HALLOWEEN theme, all the lights scream "Stop it!" That would be one hundred percent made of awesome.

The Wallgreen's where I live has basically the same thing, only instead of Hockey Masks, they're Jack-O-Lanterns, which are a little more tangentially relevant.

Another thing you should be on the lookout for is I saw this year at Wallgreens is slasher-themed ball point pens! They're rather thick, and have little rubber Jasons, Freddys and Leatherfaces atop of them. They're right now priced at two bucks but on sale for a dollar.

Dungeonbrownies, it's the CVS on La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood. Hope ya find 'em!

ColdFusion, battery-powered I believe, but they may plug in as well. I'll have to check 'em out later on when I actually hang them up somewhere.

DougClayton4231 & HowardC, I'll have to see if there's a Big Lots near me... I'll try to see what kinds o' spooky goods they have this season. Thanks for the tip!

Desert Screams, hahaha, I would kill to see somebody make some Tom Atkins themed Halloween lights... sadly, that will never happen because the world isn't run by people with awesome ideas like that. Damnations.

GreanPeaness YES!

Choconado, oh man, those pens sound pretty good. The two Walgreens around here don't have them though. Didn't see 'em anywhere. If you have a chance, please email me some photos of 'em so I can see what they look like.

Just when you were thinking it was safe to go outside again...

K-mart has a 6ft tall Jason mannequin for sale. Pretty realistic I would've swore they hired someone to stand there because they hire these used car salesmen to pitch Christmas trees during the holidays, but I eventually saw the boxes for them.


Biff Webster (Guest) on 09/20/2009 2:59 am

I've been seeing a bunch of these generic Halloween decorations using that theme this year. Must be the trend.

Went to CVS as soon as saw these, got the last set they had... Best Halloween lights ever!

I work at a CVS Pharmacy and I've seen those around. You have NO IDEA how many times I hear them going off thanks to people playing with them. =P

I actually have these lights, we bought them last year and put them up but I'm not sure where they are now...

I will have to find them before the big day.


GothiHippy (Guest) on 10/16/2009 5:10 pm

Cool, I have the same set with the same theme but mine are skulls. Maybe its a regional thing Im in NY and I saw these at P&c and bought a set for 13 bucks, then saw them at rite- aid for almost 15 and bought a second set at Walgreens for only 9.99 to give someone for their birthday. They are sound activated and run on 3AA's. Would love to find a jason set and a pumpkin set.


Mariana (Guest) on 10/07/2013 2:27 pm

Hello! I would like to know how were the lights, I saw them in the supermarket and I love them. are good?

Mariana - If you find them, I think they're definitely worth buying. Just watch the video above to see how they look.
