100 Creepy Photo Series

From Gruesome Slasher Editorials to Hauntingly Surreal Photography

— October 27, 2014 — Fashion
If you've not yet decided what to be for Halloween this year, hopefully looking at these examples of creepy photos will conjure up some creative costume ideas. These haunting photos include everything from images of abandoned places to scary fashion editorials and beauty shoots. With the theatrical in mind, these photos are excellent at helping to create a world of fantasy—although with all of the witches and ghouls, this might not be a world you want to stick around in for too long.

Perhaps if you are feeling super brave around Halloween, these photos will even inspire you to set out to some dark, desolate place and snap a few photos of your own. If you live to tell the tale, you may even have some pretty impressive photos to spook people with.
