Generic "horror" costumes

I'm not sure if this is in the right place...

But anyway, I won tickets to a horror convention in a contest. I wanted to do sort of a generically scary costume, and I figured I would mainly rely on the FX makeup -- black eye, missing eye, mouth sewn shut, reattached limb, etc. I'm really drawing ablank on what to actually wear for this costume though -- wig included. I was thinking of roughing up my Winter Soldier wig a little more and wearing that, but clothes-wise, I have NO idea. I have a "bloody" t-shirt that my friend made me when we went to see Warm Bodies, but I feel like that might be cliche?

I don't know. Any suggestions or ideas? Hair ideas or clothes...

Well, what are your favorite horror movies? If you pick a starting point you can direct your outfit into that universe-- e.g. zombie from 28 Days Later, vampire from 30 Days of Night, etc. Not a direct cosplay of a specific character, but an ensemble as if you were in the background of that world. That's where I would start. It makes it easier to come up with a coherent costume when you have an idea about what life your character is living--versus a random amalgamation of stuff "just cuz".
