Setting the mood for your online Halloween party is essential, so having the right spooky webcam background can make all the difference! However, spending time trying to find the perfect image through search engines can be a bit of a chore! So, we’ve got a whole bunch here that should do the trick! Since our own program, XSplit VCam, can use videos and gifs as backgrounds, we have some extra spooky moving ones as well!

Spooky Horror Gifs

Pop these in the background of your next call, and you’re ready to go with a spooky background guaranteed to add atmosphere to your next call! Not every call platform can support gifs and videos as a virtual background, but if the program you’re using can (did we mention our own XSplit VCam can do this as well as videos from places like YouTube?), then these will be great!

We don’t recommend showing up with one of these for your next check-in call with your boss, though! If you’re looking for some more webcam backgrounds that are less specific, we have a long list right here!
