Mental Floss

Behind The Scenes Horror Photos

Jill Harness

If you like horror movies, you'll love The Joshua Hoffine Horror Blog, where professional horror photographer Joshua Hoffine not only displays his mastery of the craft, but also shows the making of each photo. For example, the post for the picture above shows how the stapled scar was created, how the villain's make up was applied, and how the set was lit.

Even if you aren't normally a huge fan of the macabre, the images and make-up tips are just what you need to get in the spirit for Halloween time. Naturally, those who are easily terrified are not advised to click, and mental_floss will not be held responsible for any nightmares associated with these images.
