What Horror Movie Stars Look Like In Real Life Without Makeup

What ghostly ghoul creeped you out the most from one of your favorite horror movies? We all have that one sinister character imprinted on our minds.

The kind that frightens you to the point of legit phobia. The truth is, the person behind these infamous villains aren’t really all that bad.
