Cine of terror is one of the highest grossing genres on the big screen. Whether we like to scare or enjoy the suspense, this type of film is very appealing to most people.
The fear is one of the most important effects of these tapes (which are perfect for putting together a marathon of movies ) and to achieve this emotion, one of the most important elements is the characterization of the protagonists.
We show you how in real life the actors and actresses who, creepily, have given life to the terrifying characters in the ‘scare’ movies. An applause for makeup artists and costume managers!
# 1 Nightmare on Hell Street
In 1984 Robert Englund gave life to Freddy Krueger and became one of the great icons of the cinema of fear.

# 5 Friday 13

# 6 The Spell 2

# 7 Leatherface

# 9 The night of the devil
Lipstick-Face Demon (better known as ‘The Red Demon’) was played by Joseph Bishara in the movie Insidious. Is it true that her makeup is scary?
# 10 It
Behind Pennywise’s terrified makeup, he is a very handsome actor: Bill Skarsgard.
To reach a new audience, the Barbie doll agreed to play the role of Annabelle. Of course, it took a lot of makeup and a bit of stuffing on the body so the stunning blonde could look more frightening.
