Happy Halloween! Celebrate the ghoulish day with this terrifying video—but don’t worry, it’s only face paint

Still via "Rot"

The stop-motion clip, by British artist Erica Luke, uses face paint to illustrate the inevitable spread of postmortem decay. Watch it below, and don't be surprised if you get the chills (the spooky music doesn't hurt either).
