Horror Vacui by Federico Chiesa

Italian photographer Federico Chiesa has created an interesting series of images that examines what happens to iconic movie villains from the '70s and '80s long after the credits have rolled. The collection, entitled "Horror Vacui" (latin for "fear of empty space"), depicts the characters in the twilight of their years, and time has not been kind. There's Darth Vader in an easy chair underneath a blanket with Tie Fighter-adorned hot water bottle, staring forlornly at the TV; Michael Myers from Halloween, who isn't nearly as menacing using a walker; the Grady twins from The Shining, presumably still searching for someone to play with them; Jason Voorhees down and out on skid row; and Freddy Krueger alone with a bottle of wine and pack of smokes. These guys could really use a new agent. Check out the entire series in the gallery below. via: Behance
