You'll never be able to unsee this creepy life mask

Earlier this year, I stumbled across images1 of this John Carradine Life Mask, which was somewhat inconceivably being offered for sale on eBay — because the terrifying, corpse-like face of this character actor might be just the thing you need to accent your living room or study.

And it could have been yours for just $149.95, plus $21.85 for shipping.

You would have been the envy of your neighborhood!

If you neighbors were grave robbers and morticians.

The eBay listing touted that Carradine was the star of Stagecoach, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and The Grapes of Wrath. That's all true, but many of us know Carradine best for his late-career horror films such as The Sentinel; Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary; The House of Seven Corpses; Terror in the Wax Museum; Silent Night, Bloody Night; Horror of the Blood Monsters and ...

... I could keep going, but you get the picture.

Sweet dreams.

1. Let's not think about the life choices that led to me viewing these images on my laptop.
