Vintage Halloween Photos Are More Disturbing Than Modern Horror Movies, So We Recreated Some (27 Pics)

All things vintage make my inner child happy. Combine that with some old school vintage Halloween masks and I’m in squealing inner child heaven.

Whenever I see vintage images of children wearing papier-mache masks in the past, that they most certainly made at home, I wonder if they knew how long they’d be terrifying the future. Every one of them is 100% more terrifying than the top 10 horror movies trending on Netflix. That’s my jam.

So my sister and I decided to make some of our own. Combined with some store-bought masks, I photographed her to recreate some vintage-inspired Halloween horror pics, inspired by smiling kids of the past.

These aren't really old. You can tell by the boots she's wearing. Oh, and it's the same person in each photo, unless all the models are sharing shoes, socks, and gloves. Lol.
