Nineteen of the Craziest Jack-o’-Lanterns Ever

While the average person can carve a decently spooky jack-o’-lantern, Ray Villafane, a sculptor and experienced art teacher, takes the Halloween tradition to an entirely different level. The Michelangelo of the pumpkin world, Ray approaches each orange surface like a piece of clay, creating faces that are so eerily lifelike, they make your skin crawl. Taking his small-town talent national, Ray competed twice on the “Food Network Challenge: Outrageous Pumpkins,” trouncing his fellow competitors on both occasions. Click through to see some of Ray’s most haunting creations. But beware; these ghoulish gourds are not for the faint of heart!
