It doesn't have to be Halloween to get a thrill out of the suspenseful video series aptly titledTouch of Evil. Filmed for The New York Times Magazine, it stars some of the biggest celebrities of all time, as well as those who have made a name for themselves this year. From a maddened Brad Pitt to a psycho Viola Davis and creepy Ryan Gosling, these short films are simply amazing.

Directed by Alex Prager, the Touch of Evil film series is part of the magazine's annual Hollywood Issue. Inspired by some of the most nefarious icons in history, these actors really get into character. For instance, George Clooney is seen to throw a temper tandrum as Napoleon Bonaparte.
