Spirit Halloween has unveiled a new line of decor inspired by the Haunted Mansion, in time for Disney’s second stab at a live-action interpretation. This collection features an array of eerie items such as placards, lanterns, votive stands, and even a tablecloth themed after the Haunted Mansion. This project marks another partnership between Spirit Halloween and Disney, following their previous collaborations on other legendary Halloween brands like Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
There’s no Disney attraction quite as cherished as the Haunted Mansion. The franchise is packed with emblematic ghosts and nocturnal demons, and now, Spirit Halloween is providing Disney enthusiasts a chance to transform their living area into a personalized Haunted Mansion with this freshly launched line of creepy decor. This unveiling comes ahead of Disney’s second live-action adaptation, which has finally hit the big screen.
The fresh collection boasts Crown and Old Woman Ghosts signs, decor panels, an illuminated lantern globe, a skull for tabletop display, a four-sided Madame Leota Votive Holder, and a Hitchhiking Ghosts Side Steppers 3-Pack. If your dwelling could use more grim charm for the impending Halloween season, there’s a Haunted Mansion-themed tablecloth to accentuate every chilling autumnal feast. Spirit Halloween has been the go-to destination for all things macabre, and it’s not the first occasion the renowned horror retailer has joined forces with Disney. Family-friendly yet iconic Halloween brands such as Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas also have a significant presence in Spirit’s genre-filled inventory. Spirit Halloween also hosts non-Disney franchises such as Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Trick r’ Treat, and Stranger Things.
What’s the Premise of Haunted Mansion?
The latest iteration features a typical storyline of a mother (Rosario Dawson) and her young son relocating to a seemingly harmless house. Yet, inexplicably terrifying occurrences start happening in their new dwelling, leading them to seek assistance from a priest (Owen Wilson). Accompanied by a washed-up paranormal investigator (LaKeith Stanfield), a psychic (Tiffany Haddish), and a quirky historian (Danny DeVito), they endeavour to banish the ghouls haunting the mansion for good.

Despite Disney launching this film amid a jam-packed summer movie season, it seems that this take on Haunted Mansion has rectified the issues of the original 2003 version. It’s reported to be a fun, touching, and equally spooky movie that the entire family can appreciate. Disney seems to be acknowledging their marginally darker, horror-esque side while preserving the thrilling magic of the ride and beyond. Yet, the low Rotten Tomatoes rating might suggest otherwise.
Regardless, it remains a mystery why Disney would release such a film in the summer, rather than near Halloween, especially with Barbie and Oppenheimer predicted to cause significant disruption in their second weekend. It does seem like Disney has disregarded Haunted Mansion, which, if true, is disheartening given the legendary status of the ride. This is even more bewildering given the high-profile cast associated with this adaptation.
When is the Haunted Mansion Decor Collection Launching?
The entire new Haunted Mansion collection from Spirit Halloween is set to launch in August, with previews available on their website. If your horror-devoted heart can’t hold out, you can peruse Spirit’s previously released Disney collection online. You can also read FilmSweep’s review of Haunted Mansion and watch its trailer below.
