If I had to choose my two favorite things on this planet I’d likely go with horror movies and cats, and if her art is any indication, California-based artist Kat Philbin is on the same wavelength. Philbin just turned horror’s most evil villains into cuddly cat lovers, and we think you’ll get a kick out of the results.
Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Pinhead, Michael Myers, Ghostface and a Xenomorph are depicted in Kat’s unique art, which shows a softer side of the villainous icons. They all need their downtime between slaying victims, and the artist suggests that even the worst people can’t be evil all the time.
Machete by his side, Jason uses a cat as a pillow while hoisting another into the air, while Freddy turns his trademark glove into a pet-friendly scratching device. Over in Leatherface’s lair, his cats play around with animal skulls, and up in space the Alien Queen proves that nobody can hear you purr.
Meanwhile, Michael Myers celebrates Meowloween with his feline friends, and Pinhead uses his puzzle box to show you such adorable sights. As for Ghostface, he may appear to be on the verge of swallowing the head of a hapless kitten, be we assure you that masks can be very deceiving.
