Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of Halloween-related things — including the most tasteful Halloween decorations, the best Halloween makeup, and the best temporary Halloween hair color — here, we’ve rounded up the best Halloween masks, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated Halloween mask

Star Wars Roaring Chewbacca Mask
$30

Over 70 percent of reviewers gave this Chewbacca mask five stars, with many satisfied shoppers including pictures of themselves wearing the mask. Lots of reviewers love that it makes growling noises. “Great!” one writes. “I think I counted about five different Chewbacca roars and growls, and they really sound authentic.” Other reviewers used this mask as part of their family’s Halloween costumes. “Grandma wore this for Halloween when we all dressed as Star Wars characters. Some kids were scared of her at first, but it was great fun,” writes one customer. Another shopper, who checked out lots of Star Wars masks on the market, reports, “This is the best of all the Star Wars electronic masks out right now. It doesn’t try to change your voice. It has Chewie’s voice when you open the mouth … My wife and I loved this so much that we bought another one for ourselves and another for a friend. We haven’t laughed so hard about a toy ever. This mask is definitely worth every penny.”
