I'm not instinctively frightened by mask-wearers, but... err... this one does the trick.

As the article says, the eyes behind the mask do not look wholly natural. There is also a lot of agreement that they look feminine.

Bizarre masked character frightening people in South Carolina neighborhood after dark

A character straight out of a horror movie is terrifying people in one South Carolina neighborhood — and now police say they are launching an official investigation into the “suspicious activity.”

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office shared a creepy surveillance photo of its suspect Tuesday, fueling social media talk of The Slender Man, a supernatural character known for having a blank white face.

Like the Slender Man, the image shows someone in a mask with no facial features — other than holes for eyes and nostrils.

The photo was taken March 24 outside a home in the Sumter’s Meadowcroft Subdivision, the sheriff’s office told McClatchy News, and it “scared the residents in the house.” The area is about 40 miles east of Columbia.

Dangerous to go around scaring people in the dark in a country where so many people carry guns :fire::13th:

I think they're quite young, whoever they are. That would be why the eyes look bigger.

Very large eye sockets. Perhaps wearing a mask inside the mask?

All this "the eyes look weird" stuff only makes sense if you assume a human normal :)
