You don’t often think about slasher film villains in their everyday lives. You picture them lurking around dark corners, chopping up a victim or two, and maybe — just maybe — plotting serial murders in some weird kind of basement covered in newspaper clippings. We definitely don’t picture Freddie Kruger or Michael Myers popping into Starbucks for their morning brew. If you think about it though, iconic horror villains must have some sort of normal life. They’ve got to eat, live somewhere, make money somehow (you know Freddie had that whole janitor thing going on).
Artist Jason Shaltz took it upon himself to imagine some of horror’s most iconic villains in everyday situations. Some would say Leatherfaceriding the subway to work or Michael Myers grabbing a bite to eat would stick out, but it seems like all these characters live in New York City, where even the strangest site is met with an aggrivated shove out of the way or is ignored all together.
