There's less than a week left until Halloween, and while this year won't bring the same kinds of raucous celebrations and spooky festivities thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are plenty of ways to get in the holiday spirit. TikTok, the short-form video app beloved by Gen Z and older generations alike, has plenty of videos that'll leave you genuinely scared.

The hashtag #horrortok — a portmanteau of "horror" and "TikTok" — has amassed over 2.5 billion cumulative views. Other hashtags, like #horror, boast 10.2 billion cumulative views. While not everything in the tag is strictly horror related, those view numbers are nothing to sneeze at.

TikTok creators post horror videos at all times of the year, but Insider has compiled some of the best and scariest on the app just in time for this Halloween.
