The nominations are in.

From Oct. 11 to Oct. 18, we asked you to send in your photo submissions of the most devilish Halloween decorations in your neighborhood — and you did not disappoint.

From an artist’s horror house remodel to a skeletal wedding, these “haunted” houses are sure to give any passerby a good scare. Plus, if we’re being honest, they are probably giving out the best Halloween candy to trick-or-treaters this year, too.

With dozens of photos submitted for this year’s contest, which house will reign supreme? Take a look at the submissions below and vote for your favorite in our poll. Be sure to spread the Halloween cheer and get your friends, family and neighbors involved, too!

You have until Oct. 26 at 11:59 p.m. to cast your votes.

The winners of the contest will be announced on Oct. 31 in print, online and on our social media.

Happy voting!

Apropos of the forthcoming “Halloween Kills,” the latest in the long-running John Carpenter created slasher series, this Columbia yard features Michael Myers. Don’t worry. It’s just a prop . . . We think.
