Photographer Captures Eerie Portraits That Look Like Horror Movie Posters (81 Pics)

This photographer blew it out of the water with his neon series called The Shadow District which you can find here on Bored Panda. But what he is really known for is his portraits that look like they were pulled straight out of a cinematic film!

“It’s just a photo taken at night, what’s the big deal?”

What makes Aakaash Bali’s portraits so unique is the high production, Hollywood level techniques that he applies to each subject.

Between aliens, ghosts and other nightmares – his work looks like it belongs to a horror movie poster or “Stranger Things” advertisement! Make sure you look closely… or you might miss something!
