Frightening people is a funny business.

Check out these hilarious photos of actors fooling about on the sets of some classic horror movies.

The most famous horror movies scare the living daylights out of the audience with spine tingling scenes that live long in the memory - especially when the lights go out.
No matter how many times we are told that it is simply a film, a piece of entertainment, classic chiller's like Jaws can stop us getting into the water or in the case of Stephen King's 'It' make children's clown's petrifying.
However, the terror is only committed onto film and when the camera's stop rolling as these behind-the-scenes pictures show, the film stars and their crew relax and joke in unexpected and hilarious ways.

Director Steven Spielberg sits in the mouth of the great white shark from his 1975 movie 'Jaws'. The film was his first summer blockbuster and the highest grossing film of all time (at that time). It was #1 at the box office for 14 consecutive weeks
