There are endless ways to put fun new spins on the horror genre’s most beloved killers, and thankfully the community is full of fans who have done just that. From horror icon Pez dispensers to slasher villains depicted as cat lovers, we can’t get enough of clever fan art here on iHorror.
Artist Alex Solis recently became a proud father, and he used that major life event as the inspiration for an art series he calls Baby Terrors. The idea behind the series was to turn horror icons into newborn babies, and the results of the project are as adorable and hilarious as you might expect them to be.
Solis gave nearly all the major icons the infant treatment, from Hannibal Lecter to Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees to The Ring‘s Samara. Chucky, Pennywise, Michael Myers, Leatherface, and Pinhead were also reduced in age by the artist, along with the Universal Monsters and even the Grim Reaper himself.
“I wanted to give them a horrific look but still a very innocent feel to them,” Solis said of the series. “I think it makes them cute, you almost want to be murdered by them!”
