  14. Christin Thatcher says:

    I have to rely on selfies since I can’t see myself in mirrors.

  15. DW says:

    Let’s dig a hole here for my dead phone.

  16. Beth says:

  19. DW says:

    Nope. Egypt is a long way from here. Your GPS is inaccurate.

  20. Scott says:

    It’s now a primary offense, texting while dying.

    I was callig a different mummy.

  34. Beth says:

    Hey Mike, remember when you told me your cousin had “mad rapping skills”…

    I knew we should’a taken that left turn at Albuquerque!

  36. Chad says:

    It says here’s today is “Mummy Appreciation Day”? I guess I should go buy you a card…

  37. OuttaBubblegum says:

    Ugh… My mesmerizing powers have no effect in Tinder.

  38. Dave H says:

    “Next on the list is a vulture feather. Wow, this really IS a scavenger hunt!”

  39. Beth says:

    I never thought I would complain about this, but this chicken I ordered is a little too free-rangey.

  40. OuttaBubblegum says:

    I’m not in any of these!

  41. Greg says:

    Some vampire app keeps draining my battery!

  42. Zach White says:

    Sorry Eddie, I only have one ticket to paradise.

  43. Dan Larisey says:

    This new app that brings the blood to you is really a game changer.

    You’ve been eating my best friend on the side? Go to Hades.

  50. Phil says:

    “Werewolf just texted, he said he’d meet us at Trader Vic’s.”

    I told these monsters to stop calling me, and it’s always at dinner time!!!

  54. KipPhoenix says:

    “No, the Snapchat doggie ears don’t make you less scary…”

  55. OuttaBubblegum says:

  56. OuttaBubblegum says:

    Weirdest thing, I was sure it was dead, but the next night it came back.

  57. OuttaBubblegum says:

    Official trick or treat hours end before dusk. #vampireproblems

  58. Brian says:

    Van Helsing’s sending me wooden stake emojis again. He does this every year…

  60. Jodi Menees says:

    Do you validate parking? I don’t have any cash, and I need to move before the sun rises.

  61. Matt S says:

    We were supposed to stay sedentary, not go to the cemetery.

  62. Ian says:

    Why did you add the “Don’t open ’till Christmas” tag?

  63. Matthew E Garcia says:

    “I finally have enough stamps for a free pumpkin spice latté!”

  64. Matthew E Garcia says:

    “Hang on… it’s optimizing our haunting route so we can get back by sunrise.”

  65. David Goodman says:

    “Is this where the Halloween flash mob is supposed to be?”

  66. rrubo says:

    You looked more alive on your profile pic.

  67. Julie says:

    I am not sure if this is a smart phone or not but this SnapChat filter was supposed to just make you look like a mummy or vampire not actually turn you into one.

  68. Ken Roberts says:

    “It’s an overdraft notice from the Blood Bank!”

  69. Andrew M says:

    Oops, looks like I had your costume’s laundry ticket all along.

    I just took a No-Selfie

  72. Peppermallow says:

    I can’t believe I paid 4.99 for a Snapchat Filter called “Mirror Me”

  74. OuttaBubblegum says:

    I told these monsters to stop calling me! And why do they always call at dinner time?!

  75. OuttaBubblegum says:

    My mesmerizing gaze seems to have no effect on social media.

  76. OuttaBubblegum says:

    This thing is unearthly, I swear it was dead, but it just keeps coming back from the grave!

  77. OuttaBubblegum says:

    Official trick-or-treating hours end before dusk #vampireproblems

  78. Peppermallow says:

    I hate seeing Facebook pages of people who have since died. Especially as it was my fault.

  79. Gypsum Fantastic says:

    Ok I can get us into Dorsia, do you want 8 or 9 pm?

  80. Stacey says:

    I’m sorry sir, your cloak was destroyed in the Great Moth Infestation of 1892.

  81. Peppermallow says:

    I used to be normal until my ex found me on tinder and swiped down.

  82. Robin H says:

    Would you mind taking my picture with Marie Laveau?

  83. Peppermallow says:

    Oh crap, I’ve become an internet meme. Now how am I going to attract unwitting victims.

  84. JR O says:

    Must be a dead zone…

  85. Jennifer Klaas-Taylor says:

    (I’m assuming the vampire is holding a cell phone …)
    “Give me a sec. I want to wrap up this call before my phone goes dead.”

  86. Peppermallow says:

    Why do you keep replying “#TutTutTut” to everything I post?

  87. Peppermallow says:

    We didn’t win the Halloween dress up competition. The guys dressed as siamese twins Trump and Kim beat us.

  88. Peter says:

    Mummy Chicken: $20

  89. Peter says:

    Siri, where can I find a good bite around here?

  90. Peter says:

    They were supposed to teepee your house, not you!

  91. Miles Archer says:

    Selfies don’t work on this phone.

  92. Michelle says:

    Did you order “Garlic Chicken” AGAIN?

  93. Dennis Mairet says:

    This neighborhood is dead. Hey! They are giving away candy at the mall.

  94. Dennis Mairet says:

    No coverage. We must be in a dead zone.

  95. Dennis Mairet says:

    You’re too deadpan in this video. Liven up a bit.

  96. Dennis Mairet says:

    Hey! I don’t show up in any of our selfies.

  97. Dennis Mairet says:

    According to my GPS, uncle Mike should be right here.

  98. Dennis Mairet says:

    Apparently, rip has 12 meanings.

  99. Dennis Mairet says:

    Who is this Doug…and why is he always texting me.

  100. Dennis Mairet says:

    Damn! My phone is possessed by an OS upgrade.

  101. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    My face wouldn’t show up in the mirror so I use the selfie function on this phone.

  102. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    Oops, sorry. Thought you were a Pokemon.

  103. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    Well bud, you’re a bit far from the pyramids, but if you want I can let you borrow my GPS for a bit.

  104. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    I was going to ask if you wanted a bite to eat, but they probably took out your stomach in the mummification process.

  105. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    I called “Mom”, not “mummy”.

  106. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    Looks like we’re scheduled to scare some kids at 9:00.

  107. (Random Chicken) Gavin says:

    I say sell the smartphone and get a flip-phone. Your wrappings won’t work on the screen and don’t even get me started with facial recognition.

  108. Vladimir Plojhar says:

    So… Are you going to looks like in a picture in the end?

    Title: Blind date.

    I have a winning ticket for a free tooth extraction from a dentist. I can’t use it, and it looks like you can’t either.

  110. Jordan says:

    “But then he turned and saw the letters in a mirror. They read… K…F…C…”

  111. Jordan says:

    “I gotta say, Larry. This is all a little cliché.”

  112. Jordan says:

    “I’ve got this new Blare Witch filter on my phone.”

  113. Nahtmmm says:

    Wolfman’s the coat checker. My cape’s gonna be covered in hair

  114. OuttaBubblegum says:

    You ever get a creepy feeling, you are being stalked by some awful abomination, on Facebook?

  115. Zoetrope says:

    Are you hurt? I can get you some Band-Aids instead of pieces of cloth.

  116. Tim Canny says:

    Zombie Bob says he’s going to be late. He ate his Uber driver’s brain again.

  117. Jordan Simons says:

    Dracula to bridge…confirming no presence of blood with this creature.

  118. Rara says:

    You want me to bite you so that you can star in The Mummy Returns ?!!

  119. Adolfo de la Garza III says:

    You’d think the Night of the Living Dead casting call would have been a little more specific.

  120. Jordan Simons says:

    Dracula to bridge…scanners indicate high levels of deception. Initiating invasive fang test.

  121. Rara says:

    Maybe she wanted you to wrap your head around the problem…and not the problem around your head?

  122. Jordan Simons says:

    Daily horoscope: Looks can be deceiving. Trust your instincts to find your joie de vivre.

  123. Rara says:

    Love your gf’s posts…such a bat temper! Can’t understand how she ended up with a dummy mummy like you!

  124. Jerome says:

    You looked more appetizing on your profile pictures.

  125. Renee says:

    You looked a lot less… Mummified on your dating profile.

  126. Chris Guerra says:

    I love your place, but I started dating again to look for some fresh blood.

    Title: Irreconcilable Differences

  127. Jeff Hatcher says:

    Reservation for one please!

    These are instructions to bandage a wound, not a do-it-yourself costume.

  129. OuttaBubblegum says:

    I don’t know why I bother with these class reunions. It’s always a dead crowd.

  130. OuttaBubblegum says:

    Klaatu Barada NNNNNNecktie. Nectar. Nickel. Noodle. Klaatu… Barada… N,cough,cough… So.. There I said the words!

  131. David Windhorst says:

    It’s a bunch of random characters from Quasimodo. Probably just hump-dialed.

  132. Merman says:

    Oh no!we missed an important mummification detail ..says here – “The subject should be dead” 🙁

  133. Jayson says:

    It says here NOT to use bleach

    My Chinese fortune cookie reads: “Put away your umbrella, sunny days are ahead for you!”

  138. dana says:

    I think we’re here too early for the party. My phone is still on Transylvania time.

  139. dana says:

    The President just called me a “souless blood-sucker” on Twitter. That’s true, but I have to admit it stings a bit.

  140. dana says:

    They’re calling us monsters on CNN. Fake news!

  141. dana says:

    It looks like your movie romance is over. Tom Cruise has texted that he’s breaking up with you. There won’t be a sequel.

  142. dana says:

    Frankenstein invited us to join him on the nude beach at High Noon. That’s not going to work for either of us.

  143. dana says:

    Wolfman says he won’t be able to make it to the party. He’s at the vet, getting his shots.

  144. Cat Hahn says:

    “When you said you’d be late because you were all wrapped up, I didn’t think you meant it literally.”

  145. Antonio says:

    “Chuck can’t come to the party, he’s a bit tied up at the moment.”

  146. dana says:

    It says that I’ve won a year of free meals at that trendy vegetarian restaurant.

  147. dana says:

    I got a text from Van Helsing. He’s inviting me to play ‘high stakes’ poker. Should I go?

  148. Flavio Santamorena says:

    Bloody Heaven! I just won Doug’s Halloween contest!

    We took the wrong direction, this is a dead end!

    So you really are a werewool. The costume label says “100% Merino”.

    Smile this time!

  149. dana says:

    I’ve been invited to ‘Stake and Shrimp’ night at Buffy’s house. Hmmm…

  150. dana says:

    That night I spent drinking bloodwine with the Klingons is a blur. I just got hit with a paternity suit from Lursa of House Duras.

  151. dana says:

    I’ve got no bars. We’re not going to find that Pokemon here.

  152. Darlene says:

    Uber pickup time is 8 minutes. That’s gonna feel like an eternity!

    oops! those are plaster bandages

  156. Allen's Brain says:

    Oh yeah? Well you don’t look like your dating profile pic, either!

  157. Allen's Brain says:

    Are you sure this is the pic you want for your online dating profile, Mr Hotep?

  158. Allen's Brain says:

    Oh, you already are?

  159. Allen's Brain says:

    You’re a mummy, not a pinata? Then why did you use paper mache?

  160. Amanda Hatch says:

    Our GPS has put us in grave danger.

  161. Kathleen says:

    This new Mummy GO game is so realistic.

  162. OuttaBubblegum says:

    I told him, I am the lord of evil, master of the night, I will take the galaxy. So… I’m an android guy now.

  163. Nicolas Verdi says:

    I believe his number is 666

  168. Peppermallow says:

    You are going to love the vampire version of bit-coin!

  169. Peppermallow says:

    I’ve always wondered exactly where this thing vanishes whenever I turn myself into a bat.

  170. Peppermallow says:

    I haven’t been a bat since I got this thing. It destroys my sense of direction.

  171. Rupert says:

    The Yelp review for this graveyard mentioned mosuleums. Where are the mosuleums?

  172. Nick Everson says:

    To be fair, the invitation never said the party would be lively.

  173. Petar Bajic says:

    I forgot where I parked.

  174. Flavio Santamorena says:

  177. Cleo says:

    I just changed my Facebook status to undead.

  178. richard sharp says:

    “how are you going to hen peck me in that get up?”

    Title: the living dead

  185. Dennis Mairet says:

    Let’s tip over his tombstone since he won’t give us candy. I’ll call Frankenstein to help.

  186. Dennis Mairet says:

    We’ve been pranked. Somebody posted on Treatster that this guy is giving away full size Buterfinger bars.

  187. Dennis Mairet says:

    No, Mom. I’m not planning to tip over all the tombstones again this year.

  188. Dennis Mairet says:

    Accuweather says sunrise is in 30 minutes. I better get home.

  189. Dennis Mairet says:

    Why would Treatster send us here? It must be a prank.

  190. Dennis Mairet says:

    Siri, where is the grave of Arch Stanton?

  191. Dennis Mairet says:

    Siri, who is buried in Grant’s tomb?

  192. Dennis Mairet says:

    Siri, how deep are caskets buried? And where is the nearest hardware store?

  193. Dennis Mairet says:

    Why is google maps sending us to Boise to see Paul Revere’s grave?

  194. Dennis Mairet says:

    It’s a text from your great great great great great grandpa. He says it’s cold and dark down here.

  195. Dennis Mairet says:

    Emergency calls only. Is a low red blood cell count an emergency?

  196. Dennis Mairet says:

    It’s my dentist. He says it will take orthodontics to fix my overbite.

  197. Dennis Mairet says:

    Uh Oh. The Red Cross is flagging a shortage in the world’s blood supply.

  198. Dennis Mairet says:

    You can get free shipping if you up it to 4 quarts of embalming fluid.

  199. Adam says:

    Unicode fell short this time, so I needed to make a picture:


  200. Peppermallow says:

    It’s Helga’s phone. Turns out it was more waterproof than she was.

  201. Peppermallow says:

    I don’t like ‘Apple Pay’. It reminds me too much of Snow White.

  202. Peppermallow says:

    I love the irony. I got a “BFF” text from a mortal.

  203. Colleen says:

    Selfies are a great substitute for mirrors.

  204. Micah says:

    Zoning ordinance 17-k21 expressly forbids the reanimation of mumified remains.
    You’re either going to have to petition for a variance, or mind-control the city council like the mad-scientists did last year.

  205. OuttaBubblegum says:

    I tried to sell you to KFC, but they just refused, they say you are too fresh!

  206. Frank says:

    Can you believe Frank and Angela? It’s a save the date for their death-a-versary party on the same night as our terrorize-the-town tour. Unbelievable!

  207. Andrew T says:

    Sorry, this tomb transfer expired 5000 years ago.

  208. Justin James says:

    You are right, your wrappings ARE closer to ecru than they are to beige.

  209. Dennis Mairet says:

    Low is 24 degrees. Moon is waxing gibbous. Wind is west north west at 15 to 20 miles per hour. Yanet Garcia is wearing a blue dress. I feel warmer already.

  210. Dennis Mairet says:

    Siri, play Songs From The Crypt.

  211. Dennis Mairet says:

    Our credit card company wants to know if we really bought 40 rolls of masking tape.

  212. Dennis Mairet says:

    Oh, a Dracula card! Just what I needed to complete my collection!

    “Sorry, no cape this year. Transylvanian Air lost my luggage!”

    “Here’s my dry cleaning ticket. Can I have my cape?”

    “You look better than your Tinder photo!”

  215. Oana says:

    damn these jehova witnesses

  217. Ovidiu says:

  218. Oana says:
