instagram new halloween features instagram stories

Instagram has introduced a new spooky filter and three emoji to get you in the mood for Halloween.

The new filter is called Haunted Halloween, and it has two versions depending on whether you use your phone’s front or rear camera. The front camera morphs you into a ghoulish version of yourself, making your face super pale, adding blood-red lips, and smokey eyes. The rear camera allows you to turn your current setting into a horror movie, complete with music from Instagram’s SoundCloud feature.

The new emoji offerings are a ghost, a pumpkin, and a skull, and are only available to Instagram users based in the U.S. and Canada.

What’s your favorite IG filter? Let us know in the comments.

Now, here are some last minute celebrity costume ideas for Halloween 2018.
