20 creepy Halloween costumes from the past that will freak you out

Halloween costumes aren’t as scary now as they were before. Our costumes are made of plastic, are colourful and vibrant, and even the “frightening” witches or zombies look like cartoons. But, back in the day, people took Halloween seriously. The goal was to make yourself—and your children—look like the walking dead, or if anything, something straight out of a horror film. Most kids wore paper bags or impressive masks, while others chose a more traditional clown getup. Either way, they were absolutely terrifying.

Here are 20 of the most skin-crawling, creepy, and seriously disturbing pictures on the Internet. You can thank Google for this wondrous collection.

Enjoy!
