Animated GIFs are usually cute, repetitive, and addictive to watch. Two out of three isn’t bad for Kevin Weir. He takes old images from the Library of Congress and makes something weird out of the—and the black and white definitely adds to the creepy feel. While similar pictures might be boring in a textbook, these revised iterations of history are anything but. From alien-like creatures strolling through the ruins of a city, to what looks like a ghost coming out of a cannon, dragging away the soul of the poor chap standing in front, these GIFs are perfect for sharing on the spookiest of days—Halloween.
