10 Insanely Realistic Horror Portraits by Paul Acker

Long live the king of horror realism.

Paul Acker is the king of horror realism, and to be quite honest, is there anything better to be the king of? With over 400K followers on Instagram alone, and a portfolio that looks as if it’s been ripped directly from movie posters, Acker is a master of all things frightful.

An expert at portraits, Acker’s strength lies in the details that compose his characters faces. Every glistening drop of blood in the werewolf’s teeth, the lumps and bumps in Gwar’s head, and the wrinkles and folds in the Penguin’s face are all part of a macabre symphony that comes together to create something truly frightening.
