Dripping Blood Font

If you want you can add a dripping blood text on the girl skin or on the walls. Use this YouMurderer BB font or any other dripping font that you like. I added a Color Overlay (color #da1d1d) and Satin (color #) to the blood text layer.

Use the Edit > Transform > Warp Tool to distort the text. You will have to rasterise the text or convert to a smart object to use the Warp Tool.

Add Chain PNG

If you want to create a horror dark effect you can add some chains. Use this Seamless Chain PNG image and desaturate the image. Add a Drop Shadow effect. If you are using more than one chain you can use different sizes and use the Gaussian Blur filter to create some depth.

Add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to create a darker look.

I have added 3 High Pass layers with Soft Light blend mode. Learn how to use the High Pass technique in Photoshop.

In the High Pass layers, use the Burn Tool and with a soft round brush paint over some areas. You will create a contrast and depth effect by darkening some areas.
