  1. Jack O

The absence of a font like this one, which uses jack o' lanterns to spell out your message, would make no collection of free Halloween fonts complete. Jack O is a fontbat developed by Claude that was inspired by Halloween Jack-o-lanterns and is freely downloadable as a.ttf file. It would be a good one for prolonged messages or horror stories because you'll get both uppercase and lowercase letters.
