'100 Years Of Horror Movie Characters' Serves Up The Ultimate Spooky Halloween Inspo

Talk about a transformation.

With Halloween just around the corner, you may be in an extra spooky spirit conjuring up your best Halloween costume to surprise your friends and family. And each year, you flip through countless Halloween inspiration photos, looking for the coolest ways to celebrate figures from pop culture, transform ourselves with colorful makeup, and even scare our friends with some awesomely horrifying attire.

Recently, Refinery29 put together a video feature 100 years of horror movie characters, complete with how to get their looks using makeup and a few key props. The time-lapse begins with two Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde looks from the 1910s, moves through a '30s Dracula-inspired look, continues with an extra-creepy look from the 1970s film The Exorcist, and lands in the 2000s with a costume inspired by Saw. 


The video also features characters from The Ring, The Mummy, and The Birds, among others. 

For example, to achieve the look from The Ring, makeup artists cover the model with gray and blue makeup, fake cracking skin, a long black wig, and a fitting costume. 

The looks are so spot-on, and quite frankly, we're pretty terrified.
