For every day in October, Vinnie’s Pizzeria in Brooklyn has been honouring some of the spookiest, most gruesome horror flicks through the creative masterpieces and delicious puns of its specials board.
Starting with a nod to Hereditary (hail Paimon), Vinnie put his excellent wordplay and artistic skills to fuckin’ WORK over the entire month, switching the boards out day to day.

The boards span the entire spectrum of scary specials, from Nosferatu to Krum from Aah! Real Monsters! right the way through to viral jump scare videos which STILL bloody made me jump even though I knew exactly what was about to happen.
I’M SO MAD THAT IT STILL GOT ME, EVEN AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.
The Vinnie’s team really are masters of the whiteboard marker just as much as they’re masters of the dough frisbees, because they’ve still managed to make me feel deeply uncomfortable with their recreation of the aliens from Mars Attacks.
Yes, okay, I know that this movie is a fuckin’ comedy but it scared me so much as a kid that I now, at age 27, cannot watch it because it still creeps me the fuck out.
Anyway, here’s a bunch of my favourite boards. Please enjoy both the artistic prowess on display here, and the beautifully naff puns. You know we love a good pun.
And quite easily the absolute BEST one, is this perfectly-drawn Raiders Of The Lost Ark dedication. The mastery! The finesse! The knowledge that someone has a bunch of whiteboard ink down their arm!
Vinnie’s Pizzeria doesn’t just wipe off the board and start again each day either, no sir, they use a NEW board for every special and keep each one of them. Apparently, the shop has like 700 boards so far, and you can check out each of the specials boards on the shop’s dedicated Tumblr.
Is the pizzy shop’s staff made up entirely of dads? Because some of these puns are absolute pearlers.
