Behind the Masks and Makeup of Our Favorite Characters

Some of the most iconic characters from the silver screen have either been heavily make-upped as horror villains, aliens and fantasy creatures. Therefore, the actor or actress underneath never gets enough credit for their work much of the time.

This gallery shows a bunch of transformations from costumed creature into the actual actor. Unsurprisingly, many of the most terrifying ones are actually quite good looking in real life.

Check it out below, and feel free to suggest your own that are missing here.

    I would’ve gone with Tim Curry as “Darkness” in “Legend”. You don’t even know it’s him. Though granted you could say the same about Pennywise, I feel EVERYONE in enough clown make-up looks unrecognizable (and also, isn’t that the idea?).

  • Rich

    Who is that above Freddy Kruger/Robert Englund?

  • DisturbedCanadian

    me thinks it’s Jeepers Creepers guy/Van Damn
