The spookiest night of the year is creeping around the corner. Yes, Halloween is almost here, heralding the arrival of spooks and ghouls, tricks and treats, and things that go bump in the night.

Ghost Lens

We all know someone who says they’ve seen a ghost, but when you ask them if they captured it on camera, they fail to deliver the goods. But what if you become the friend that does capture it on camera?

Ghost Lens lets you do just that with its range of spooktastic filters. This ghastly app even allows you to shoot your very own mini ghost clips for maximum scares.

Zombie Face Maker
