We’ve officially entered that wonderful time of the year when, while technically still September, you can totally get away with going ahead and starting your Halloween festivities early. Perhaps that’s why writer Sharon Knolle christened Halloween 2020 with a Twitter compilation of the greatest sweaters in ‘80s horror. And, folks, it might be time to pull off your sweater because it’s about to get real steamy in here.

All the greats are here, from Chris Sarandon in Fright Night to A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Heather Langenkamp. It takes us back to a simpler time, when you could flee a masked serial killer while comfortably wearing an L.L. Bean cardigan. Unfortunately, we live in 2020, which means climate change has ensured we won’t be entering sweater weather until at least December, if we’re lucky. How’s that for terrifying?
