Facebook page Witches Night shared these vintage Halloween costumes and people are totally freaked out by them!

The images of children and adults dressed in old fashioned costumes have people saying they would never even open the door if kids turned up looking like this today!

The post has attracted over 145,000 shares and nearly 7000 comments including,

“The only reason these look scary to us modern people is because we live in a time of horror films that have ruined us , people back then would have not viewed these as creepy they would have found them funny/silly nobody would have been scared to see kids like this , it would have brought people joy.”

“Imagine if people still dressed up like this, I don’t know if I’d step foot outside on Halloween”

“They were actually trying to hide from a demon that roamed the earth on Halloween when they thought the veil between the living and the dead was almost nonexistent. The scary masks and face paint disguised them”

“I would f$#ken sh@t if any of these showed up at my front door”

“I’m sorry but no wonder we see Halloween as a scary time of year! If one of these knocked on my door I’d kick their ass through a moon door! ”

“These are way more scary than anything nowadays. It’s the look of farm clothes mixed together with an strangest mask. Creepy.”

Must admit they all look pretty darn creepy to me!

  • The picture has been removed know – intrigued!


  • Back in those days, the costumes would have looked nearly normal as nearly all children would have worn farm gear, but parents would have been scared at the costumes our children wear these days.


  • Oh wow, they sure did show the true meaning of Halloween back in the day. These costumes are by far, hands down superior to today’s wishy washy efforts


  • These are very creepy. I’d probably turn off all lights, hide the car and pretend I wasn’t home that night.


  • Yikes, they are a bit freaky!


  • The parents and children must have tried so hard to make these costumes – inventive and not too creepy.


  • I agree with Jenniw the black and whites add to the creepiness!!


  • I’m a big scaredy cat and still haunted by Freddie Kruger and Poltergeist from my teens. Not planning on dressing up in any creepy costumes soon.


  • Wow.. they do look very creepy. I think the black and white photos make them look worse than they really are though.


  • Hahaha, they do look really creepy. Imagine seeing an adult in one of those!


  • Far out !! Some of them look worse than today’s inventions.


  • I don’t know if these are more creepy then the Haloween dress ups of these days. I don’t like Haloween

    • They look tamer to me than current costumes.


  • Yikes. How to scare everyone.
