Harley tops the most popular Halloween costume lists for the second year in a row, beating out Google search queries for ‘clown’, ‘zombie’ and ‘devil’.

The comic book character was a new entry in the most searched for Halloween costumes in 2016 following the release of DC movie Suicide Squad, but it’s not the only movie-influenced Halloween search.

The 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s It clearly had an impact on movie goers Halloween habits this year, with ‘Pennywise’ coming in as a new entry in the top 20 most searched for costumes.

Other movie-related costume choices include The Joker (in at 6), Chucky (13) and the frankly unimaginative Superhero (14).
