Hootsuite's Great Halloween Ads Try to Calm Your Fears About Social Media Fun horror-movie parodies

It's that time of year again, when we can escape our average selves, don clever costumes and get all hopped up on Fireball shots—I mean, gummy worms. And it's always pretty fun to see what brands do to celebrate, because when they're good, they can be really good.

Social media aggregation site Hootsuite has done itself proud with a great series of horror-movie parody posters, produced in-house. Take a look below and see what happens when scary movies are monster-mashed with social-media themes. (And keep a sharp eye, because two of these are actually sneaky GIFs.)
