Well this is quite the makeup job!
We didn't think ANYONE could make Benedict Cumberbatch quite so scary-looking — but alas, we are proved wrong!
The Sherlock actor has surfaced in some never-before-seen pictures from his role in Danny Boyle's award-winning production of Frankenstein, which is in theaters NOW!
The film is of the hit stage production, where Benedict ping-pongs between the role of Victor Frankenstein AND The Creature along with fellow actor Jonny Lee Miller!
He actually admitted that the Franken-creepy makeup took him FOURTY minutes to take off after each performance! Yikes!
Ben's performance is set for a two part presentation in over 550 theaters around the world — and if you check cinemas, the flick might be screening in your town for Hallo-weekend!!
Ch-ch-check out all the pictures of the crazy makeup (above) in preparation for the actual movie magic!!!
