The Halloween season has arrived, and it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Instead of trotting out the same old spookiness, artist Ed Harrington is kicking it Swedish-style. His illustrations of horror film villains as IKEA instruction manual pictographs are a unique twist on the genre. As Dangerous Minds points out, if you’ve ever put together a piece of IKEA furniture, then you know things can get really scary, really fast.

Harrington’s clever drawings of “VÖRHEES” (Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhies) and KRUGR (Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger) have us jonesing for cafeteria food we can’t pronounce and ready to run screaming with hex key in hand. Dig the mini graphics for each character, like the wicked Lemarchand’s box from Hellraiser, and Buffalo Bill’s lotion/basket from The Silence of the Lambs (complete with pup “Precious!”).

Celebrate Halloween with these ready-to-assemble characters from your favorite films.
