Angelina Jolie is hauntingly beautiful as malevolent Maleficent in the new poster for the film about Sleeping Beauty's villain.

Her translucent skin, red lips and yellow eyes pop out from behind a large, sharp collar, and her bewitching stare is offset by black horns that appear to be encased in leather.

The look is so frightening that Jolie, 38, startled children who came to visit the Maleficent set.

"These little kids would visit the set, and I would think, 'Oh, I am a Disney character,' so I would go over to them, and say, 'Hi there.' They would just scream," Jolie said.

The magnificent costume didn't fool her own children though, who are also in the film. Pax, 9, and Zahara, 8, have small walk-on roles, while Vivienne, 5, plays the young Princess Aurora. The older Aurora is played by Elle Fanning.

Maleficent – in 3D – opens in theaters on May 30.
