43 Fascinating Behind The Scenes Photos From Classic Horror Movies

Classic horror movies have made lasting impressions on us throughout the years.

Who could really ever forget the Exorcist? It surely freaked out many people for a good while but did you know there are some pretty awesome things that happened behind the scenes of some of the most iconic horror films around?

These are some of the scariest characters ever created and it’s interesting to see them in such a vulnerable state when they’re not performing on screen. Who will ever forget Linda Blair in what was easily her most recognizable role — The Exorcist.

So every now and again, it’s fun to pull back the curtain and see what these frightening characters were like before they scared the crap out of us.
