Optical Illusion: normal faces turn into monsters before your very eyes

Get ready for a weird and fascinating experience. In this clip, you will experience one of the freaky quirks of the brain. A lot of explanation isn’t neccesary – just keep your eyes on the cross in the middle. Fullscreen mode works best. If you are of the sceptical kind, feel free to watch the clip again without looking at the cross to confirm that those bizarre faces are only in your head.

We describe a novel face distortion effect resulting from the fast-paced presentation of eye-aligned faces. When cycling through the faces on a computer screen, each face seems to become a caricature of itself and some faces appear highly deformed, even grotesque.
