There are a lot of ways to scare people on Halloween. The classic is jumping out at someone while wearing a creepy mask. There are also tons of scary movies to choose from or the good old turning the lights off and on. If you want to creep people out with your makeup, you cannot go wrong with a stitched mouth. Stitches in general freak a lot of people out, so when you take them to the next level on Halloween with some fake blood, pus, and ripped flesh, you have a look that is guaranteed to give people nightmares.
