The Onscreen Death

The Morbid World Of “Dead Actors”

There’s a creepy Tumblr out there that collects screenshots from movies in which famous actors are pretending to be dead. The name of the tumblr is, appropriately enough, Dead Actors.


Here’s some selections. When seen as a whole, the feeling one gets is creepy and yet completely silly. Remember, it’s all just pretend!
