It’s 2016, which means most of us have completely stopped using paper calendars for at least five years now. They were the perfect excuse to have scantily dressed men and women to ogle while we set our dates, or maybe just cute animals dressed up in themed costumes. Either way, horror photographer Ama Lea has given us all 12 great reasons to bring back the hanging wall calendar with her latest project, Year of Fear 2017
Have you ever wanted to see Freddy Krueger’s six pack, or wondered just how toned Leatherface’s butt is? Well ponder no more my thirsty friends, Year of Fear 2017 has given our favorite horror villains a sexy makeover the likes of which will make you want to reuse the calendar over and over again. Lea has recreated scenes from your favorite horror films to pay a sexy homage to the classics. Featuring models and noted horror celebs like Jonathan Tiersten (Sleepaway Camp), Marv Blauvelt (Death House), and Jared Degado (300, Death House) to name a few.
Every single arrangement is done with a tongue in cheek attitude, each frame filled with several odes to the classic monsters and films we love so dearly. Even if scantily dressed men isn’t your thing, there is still plenty of over the top horror references to keep horror fans entertained year round.
Ama Lea has been a professional photographer for years, photographing the likes of Wes Craven, Stewart Gordon, and the Soska sisters for various publications including Fangoria and Delirium. Her short film M is for Mermaid is part of the recently released third installment of ABC’s Of Death
If you live in the Los Angeles area, there will be a Year Of Fear 2017 release party at The Bearded Lady in Burbank on November 4th.
