To mark 150th anniversary of Munch’s birth, Japanese company creates Screamface photo app



December 12th of this year was the 150th anniversary of the birth of artist Edvard Munch. To mark the occassion, a Japanese company has developed a photo app that alters people’s faces to become like Munch’s icon painting, The Scream. The app is called, appropriately enough, ScreamFace.

You can take a photo within the app, or even choose a picture from your Facebook album. ScreamFace automatically detects all the faces in a photo, transforming a regular image into a scary one. As the faces change, they make scream sounds as well. It’s really quite creepy.

Users can then share the resulting photo to Line, Facebook, or Twitter. In addition to creating photos, they can upload videos of the transforming scream faces to YouTube as well.

The company behind the app is Japanese company Tyffon. It has previously developed a series of zombie photo apps, including ZombieBooth 2 and Halloween Face.

For those of you looking for a chilling experience in your mobile, you can pick up ScreamFace over on the App Store.
