Buy: Online at Vans' website

Release: October 1

Editor's Notes: Vans' new footwear collection brings the famous Cardi B phrase, "These is bloody shoes," to new heights.

Next month, the sneaker giant will pay homage to all your favorite horror films including The ShiningIt, and A Nightmare on Elm Street with a range of gory kicks and clothes.

Last week, Vans shared a video clip teasing a selection of spooky styles. Building anticipation for the drop, the skate shoe purveyor just posted a series of close-up shots, challenging customers to identify all the movie references contained in the range.

For Stanley Kubrick fans, there's a Sk8-Hi printed with yellow graphics from the original poster for The Shining. A pair of slip-ons star the film's creepy twins.

A nod to It, the Authentic is peppered with red balloons that reference Pennywise's party favor of choice.

Freddy Krueger's striped sweater serves as the base for another Sk8-Hi, finished off with blood splatters across the upper and midsole.

Lastly, a Friday the 13th Slip-On features a splattered rendering of Jason Voorhees's mask.

And, of course, there's plenty of apparel to accompany the footwear, from hoodies to tees to caps.

This isn't the first time horror has served as a jumping off point for fashion. Just last week, Wacko Maria dropped a range of shirts, outerwear, and even plates starring Anthony Hopkins as cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal.

For Fall/Winter 2019, Undercover presented a collection inspired by Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria remake. Just a couple of years earlier, the brand closed its Spring/Summer 2018 show with a pair of models referencing Kubrick's terrifying twins.

And we can't forget Supreme's Hellraiser collab, featuring various Pinhead-printed wares.

Vans has yet to announced a release date for its horror collection, but you can expect the spooky range to drop around Halloween. In the meantime, we'll be figuring out which Kardashian to dress as come October 31.
