Japan’s desire to look at attractive women is more or less insatiable. Despite having sizable swimsuit modeling, adult video, and animated pornography industries, the country still finds itself with not enough eye candy.

So now, model maker Kotobukiya has gone looking for female beauty in the most unlikely of places, by turning the iconic villains of slasher movies franchises Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street into sexy girls.

Kotobukiya recently launched its Horror Bishojo, or Cute Horror Girls, line. The company’s latest creation is Jason Voorhees, reimagined in a form that may have guys wondering if they should run for their lives or ask for her phone number.

The manufacturer cites the diagonally cracked hockey mask and sculpted abs as eye-catching design elements of the 23-centimeter (9-inch) figure. We can think of two other points where purchasers are more likely to turn their gaze.

The included axe and machete can both be removed, and the base is styled after the waters of Crystal Lake, setting of the first movie in the Friday the 13th franchise.

As strange as the concept of turning a character most imagine as a hulking, murdering psychopath into a svelte woman may seem, Kotobukiya does have some justification. If you don’t mind us spoiling a 34-year old movie, at the end of the original Friday the 13th, it’s revealed that the series of murders wasn’t committed by Jason Voorhees himself, but rather by his vengeance-obsessed mother (although we don’t recall her being in this good shape).

On the other hand, there’s no reason to give this treatment to Freddy Krueger of A Nightmare on Elm Street fame.

The Horror Bishojo Freddy is a tad shorter than Jason, at 22 centimeters tall. While both figures use an identically shaped base, Freddy’s is bright red, giving the impression that the villain is standing in a puddle of blood.

Female Freddy is scheduled to go on sale first, in September, at a price of 7,500 yen (US$74), with Jason following a month later for the same price. Freddy can be ordered here, and Jason here.

And yes, Kotobukiya knows that if you buy both, you’ll probably make them fight each other. As a matter of fact, the model maker is counting on it.
