Some movie lovers have no problem sitting through a horror flick and sleeping soundly that night. For others, particularly gruesome scenes—like when Regan MacNeil spews pea soup in The Exorcist—continue to haunt them years later. If you fall into the latter group, a little piñata therapy may be just what you need.

As Nerdist reports, an Etsy shop's custom-made piñatas depict some of cinema's most iconic horror villains. Michael Myers from Halloween, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th, and Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street have all been reimagined as papier-mâché candy containers. (We assume they're much less intimidating after they’ve been split open with a baseball bat.)

In addition to horror movie villains, you can also snag other offbeat pop culture characters, including Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and even KISS frontman Gene Simmons. Purchase a piñata for your next slasher-themed party from the HangMeOfficial Etsy store.
