11 Best scary face changing apps for Android & iOS

Have you ever wondered what the phrase ‘all monsters are in our head’ means? The apps below will demostrate you that it is really so! Get ready for a chilling experience. You’ll be laughing and crying, but I promise you it will be lots of fun.

The most horrendous apps in the history of apps creation: 


Zombify is an amazing app for turning people into zombies! If you are a zombie, don’t raise your hopes too high – this is just an augmented reality app, not something that will be useful for you. If you are not a zombie though, this app will help you to see what you’re going look like if you become one.

First, the app recognizes your face and then immediately makes you look like a zombie. And it is not just a picture – it is a moving video. There are lots of different effects like roaring, hiss, and others. And there are filters too. Plus you can add some more complicated animations or insects! Roaches, maggots, snakes… These last two options require payment though. Apart from that, the app is absolutely free.

Zombify is so much fun. I recommend you to try it first. It is so funny to share your zombie photos and videos with friends and family. Although it is better to choose those who have steady nerves. Download buttons are as always right under the descriptions.

ZombieBooth 2

ZombieBooth 2 is the second edition of ZombieBooth app that got 2 million downloads. The app is similar to the one above – it also makes a 3D zombie video out of your face! Here, there are lots of effects that you can apply to your eyes, your yet non-existing scars, and other zombie attributes.

The coolest part of this app is you can play with zombie videos – they are interactive. You can move your finger on the screen and a zombie will look in the direction you’re moving it to. When your finger is close to the mouth, well, be careful with that!

Upon the whole, the app is great. The final result looks less realistic than the one in the previous app, mostly because of the quality of the picture. However, you can play with it and it is also fun. ZombieBooth 2 is certainly recommended for a trial.

The Walking Dead Dead Yourself

The Walking Dead Dead Yourself is another great app for your zombie reincarnation. The app has lots of different effects and masks. It is very similar to the two apps above. The difference is that here there are the walking dead characters masks that you can apply to your face. So, if you like the show, you will probably like the app.

What is also cool about this one is that there are special effects that include texts like ‘Be mine’ or ‘My heart is yours’. As for me, it is really funny if you think about the context. The roaring and other video effects are present as well. More than that, just like in the case above, the zombies you create can bite! So, beware of that. All in all, this is another wonderful app for trying on zombie looks and having lots of fun!

MSQRD is an app that belongs to Facebook. While most of its effects are funny, scary ones are present as well. It is just that there is not a lot of them. However, the app has the other advantage – it lets you record a video using one of the masks and share it on your social media or with your friends.

And you can go live with a mask on too! There’s not that much to say about this app really – it is simple and easy. Even the ads are absent! You can download MSQRD just learn what masks it can offer. Maybe you’ll find the one.

Funny phone prank with camera

Well, basically, this one is a scary face changing app, but there is a different meaning behind these words here. You see, this is a prank app that allows you to make people scared, and therefore this is a scary app. You can get the most inadequate reactions after using it, so it definitely is. And the app is totally capable of changing a facial expression of your victim, so ‘face changing’ – nothing is wrong with that as well.

To make everything clear, I’ll explain how it works: first, you set a timer for several seconds; secondly, you pass on your phone to your friend asking him or her to look at something (like a photo gallery or a video). When time is up, your friend gets this (second screen):

And there are sounds too! And even the vibration if you want it. Imagine how unexpected all that will be! Download the app and try this joke. Use it only on stable people, or you’ll definitely face the most inadequate reactions!

For some people, it is not the monsters that take the breath away, it is getting old. AgingBooth lets you imagine more vividly how you are going to look like when you are old. Of course, it can’t predict how exactly your face is going to change – it is just a game! We all age differently. And, hopefully, gracefully.

This one is just one more simple face changing available on Google Play. It is not always scary – sometimes it is just fun.

Zombie Booth Scary Face Photo Editor

Zombie Booth for iOS is an oldie. This app has been out there since 2015, and believe or not, 2015 was almost 4 years ago. Maybe even more if you read this article later than the year it was published in. The app has 20 free masks and 30 more if you are ready to pay for them. There are some basic editing features like rotate and resize.

You can share the results on your social media to scare your friends or, which is more probable, make them laugh. For a change, this is a nice app to have! There are no freaky video effects, but it works fine. So, iOS users, don’t miss it if you like simple (and old)!

The pearl of this list. Finally. The scariest face changing app ever. You’ve probably heard about Snapchat – it is both a chatting app and a camera created with the goal to let people communicate in the moment. Snaps or photo messages are deleted after some time, so it is impossible to view them later (until you make screenshots). Because of that people post the craziest pictures there. It is both funny and kind of scary sometimes.

Anyway, you should try the app’s filters (if you haven’t already). They can be really cool. And scary. You decide what’s cool and what’s scary! Download the app and see if you can enjoy it. Don’t forget to invite your friends.
