Sonic The Hedgehog Halloween Costumes Are Terrifying People, And For Good Reason

Sonic The Hedgehog Halloween Costumes Are Terrifying People, And For Good Reason

Halloween is fast approaching, which means the pressure is on to come up with a decidedly terrifying costume to impress your mates.

And if you're still searching for the perfect get-up, then boy have we found the one for you.

You may remember that earlier this year the design for a big screen version of Sonic was met with a frosty reception.

Well, some people took that warped nightmare of an idea and turned it into spooky outfits which are really freaking people out.

See, told ya. Haunting.

And it seems the makers are really downplaying how terrifying their costumes are. An advert for one of the outfits on Amazon, says it's a 'novelty' mask ideal for 'dressing up role play and pretend makeup'.

Unless that role play is 'murder your spouse', then no, no it's not. And for almost $50 (£39), it's an expensive piece of horrific kit.

But I guess it's supposed to be the scariest time of year, so these costumes deliver on all fronts - I mean, the whole reason the initial designs for the movie's main character got poo poo'd were because they were terrifying.

As a result of all the criticism, producers of the new movie were forced to go back to the drawing board.

In a tweet, he apologised to fans, writing: "Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear... you aren't happy with the design & you want changes. It's going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & SEGA are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be... #sonicmovie #gottafixfast."

Because of the late change, the film's release date was pushed back from 2019 to 14 February, 2020.

The delay was announced by Sonic's director Jeff Fowler, who tweeted a picture of the new release date along with a hashtag referencing the extra work needed.
