It’s that time of year, spooky season is here! October is the spookiest month of all, but did you know that haunting discoveries aren't just for Halloween? Keep reading to see some of the spookiest weird junk items we’ve found over the years.

Spooky weird junk items

From skeletons to dolls, we’ve seen it all! Our teams can haul away any unwanted items, no matter how frightening. Check out the seven spookiest finds that left us thinking of some classic Halloween movies!

1. Skeleton passenger 

Can somebody call Captain Jack Sparrow? Looks like one of the crewmates from Pirates of the Caribbean managed to escape the Black Pearl before the curse was lifted. This poor guy’s been trapped as a skeleton since 1720; even his funny bone isn’t laughing. Special shout-out to our San Antonio franchise for this spooky find!Large toy skeleton sitting in the front of a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck

2. Headless mannequin torsos

We’ve found the long lost relatives of the Headless Horseman. Thankfully these ones can’t find their horses!Mannequin torsos in the back of a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck

3. Giant spider 

This larger than life spider must’ve escaped from the Forbidden Forest in Harry Potter, but we hear Hagrid’s on his way to bring him home. In the meantime just stay away from any oversized cobwebs!Giant wooden spider sculpture

4. Creepy doll with an axe

Between The Haunting of Bly Manor, Annabelle, and Coraline, we’re having a hard time trusting this doll's intentions.Old doll holding an axe

5. Vintage stroller

It looks like Gabby Gabby from Toy Story left this behind when she found her forever home. But we hear that The Bensons are planning to push it around Second Chance Antiques for years to come.Vintage baby stroller

6. Chucky doll

Cleaning out houses isn't child's play, but finding Chucky left us grinning from ear to ear!1-800-GOT-JUNK? team member holding a Chucky doll

7. Mannequin heads

Before Edward Scissorhands was able to master his hair cutting talent, he went through quite a lot of practice mannequins. Thankfully he saved the real clients for later!Mannequin heads in a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? truck
