With Halloween just around the corner, we aren’t messing around. This isn’t a collection of sexy, sultry, or cheeky Halloween imagery that you can find anywhere else on the Internet. No, here we have collected some of the grittiest, most frightening, and truly scary sources of inspiration for you so you can make this Halloween that much spookier for you and your friends.

These designs are created by artists from all corners of the world and depict their takes on some of the evilest super-villains Hollywood and comics have given us over the years. And a few original designs too.

1. Why So Serious?’

The Joker appears most prominently on this list and deservedly so. The terror and desperation he inspires are absolute.

2. The Jared Leto-Joker

Though definitely less scary than other versions of him, what he lacked in terror he more than made up for in cruel pranks and psychopathy.

An original concept, The Freak is a genuinely mindless villain. We wonder how he thinks up all his skullduggery, then.

16. Dr. Poison.

A truly vile villain if there ever was. What makes her scary is that she could reason her evil.

17. Mr. Freeze

He’s perhaps a more sympathetic villain on this list, yet a villain nonetheless. We suggest using an ice-cold wit to go with this persona. Think you can manage it?

18. The Two-Face

It will definitely need a look of make-up, but if done right may illicit some screams, boos, and perhaps an occasional heart-attack.

19. General Grievous

If you’re gonna do it, you might as well do it right.
