Watch out, Ellen DeGeneresJames Franco is the latest celeb with never-ending scares up his sleeve. 

The actor and his The Deuce co-star Chris Bauer recently went undercover at Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights to give unsuspecting park goers the fright of a lifetime. Slipping behind-the-scenes of a maze modeled after The Shining, Franco donned a Jack Nicholson mask, red flannel and axe for the big event. 

Two words: Seriously creepy. 

Unbeknownst to the Halloween fanatics brave enough to take on the re-envisioned Overlook Hotel, it was actually James (or Jack Torrance) taking a swing at guests who rounded the hallways.
