30 Scary Optical Illusions To Charge Your Wits

Optical Illusions are visually perceived objects and images that differ from reality. The scary optical illusions are usually the after images, created due to the stimulation of the vision by a specific path of movement, or brightness and even by the stimulation of extreme long patterns in the image that keep alternating.

One logical reason for optical illusions is mistaken judgment. While looking at scary photos, your brain does not understand how to react. By every new glance you will see something new and different and you will be constantly thinking that something is wrong with the objects in the photos. The people who made these optical illusions, made an effort to blow your mind.

    These are brilliant pieces of art, some much scary and others lesser scary. But the fact remains they bear one thing in common, they are creative plus they leave you wondering.

    Wow, these are very interesting to view, and some really quite spooky.

    I want to thank you for the deliciously deceptive works of art. I’m using several of them this year as writing prompts for my 7th and 8th grade English students. The visual trickery is a hook that won’t be denied, even by the “toughest”, most resistant writers. Again, my sincerest appreciation for the brain teasing stimuli.
