they look like rotting corpses, which in theory should subconciously reminds us of our own mortality but in practice it doesn't have much of a lasting effect if at all

Problem with horror - and I'm pretending 99 percent of those movies aren't money laundering schemes - is that it takes too long to start and first 45 minutes is formulaic setup. Nearly every horror movie has the same structure and they never mix it up.

Oh, you were talking about faces.

Because those traits are exactly what a dead or dying person looks like, and we instinctually fear this appearance.

Obviously the monster depiction gets sanitized for mainstream consumption, but the general aspect (sunken eyes, mouth open, etc) is meant to evoke the image with varying degrees of success

That looks interesting, where is that scene in the gif from? I'm not gonna get my hopes up that it's a good movie though, most movies nowadays have one good scene like that one and thats it...
