The Marc Hagan-Guirey Horrorgami art series uses iconic haunted abodes from cult classic horror films as inspiration for his paper cut-outs. All of the houses displayed in the craft photos are made from a single sheet of paper and lit from behind by a bright light to give an eerie macabre feeling to the displays.
The London artist recreated the ghost-ridden Overlook Hotel from Stephen King's The Shining using creepy blue paper. He even went as far as to include the maze of hedges, which Danny Torrance runs through to escape the murderous wrath of his father Jack. Another is of the foreboding Addams Family Mansion, the home of many strange and unusual happenings.
The Marc Hagan-Guirey Horrorgami will be on display in Hackney, London and will include 13 houses.
