First came "The Shining," then came "The Viewing."
The co-hosts of "The View" paid homage to horror legend Stephen King for Thursday's episode on Halloween, and the resulting looks were incredibly spooky.
The episode kicked off with a horror-tinged sequence in which Sunny Hostin and Abby Huntsman are freaked out by the behavior of their fellow co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, whose dressing room they run into to find her torturing Anthony Scaramucci. Meghan McCain hacks through the wall with an axe at the end of the segment to get them to start the show with her as Goldberg reads "Stephen King's The Viewing."
Welcome to #TheViewing — a @StephenKing-inspired #Halloween horror fest! 🎈— The View (@TheView) October 31, 2019

Later in the morning, the co-hosts' costumes were unveiled: Hoston was a terrifying Pennywise from "It," Huntsman was a convincing prom queen from "Carrie" and Goldberg was a fantastic Church from "Pet Sematary," but it was Behar and McCani's joint costume as the Grady sisters from "The Shining" that undoubtedly stole the show.
In a segment announcing their costume, a voiceover declared that "they're 'The Shining's' terrifying twosome who show you a world where Trump is president forever and ever and ever" as a sign comes up indicating Trump will be president for decades to come.
McCain shared a photo of their costume on Instagram, and fans and viewers alike couldn't help but gush about how "EPIC" their looks for this year's Halloween show were.
While the "Good Morning America" hosts opted to channel Studio 54 for their big group costume, the "Today" show gang went with iconic dance-inspired moments from pop culture history for theirs.
Other notable celebrity costumes this year have been Kylie Jenner as Ariel from "The Little Mermaid," Ashley Graham as Jessica Rabbit, Jennifer Garner as a mailbox, Ciara and Russell Wilson as Beyoncé and Jay-Z and Jessica Biel as husband Justin Timberlake, among many others.
