PrettyWreck Cosplay may haunt your dreams with her version of Freddy Krueger. I don’t know if it’s the classic ripped sweater or the devilish metal claws, but she is definitely killing it. Hear what she has to say:

“Nightmare on Elm St has been my favorite horror movie since I was a kid and started watching them, it was always ironic because the elementary school I went to as a kid was on “Elm St” so it was always a little joke to my self that school was a nightmare haha.”

See more haunting photos after the break:

And Now…Prez Rickard

Four more years...until he can legally drink!
Four more years…until he can legally drink!

It’s President’s Day here in the United States, so for today, let’s look at one particularly odd fictional president.  He was incorruptible, idealistic, and way too young to be legally elected in the real world.  His name was Prez Rickard.

And yes, I am aware my math is wrong on the photo captioned above if Prez is an 18 year old president.  But no one would sit for a “three more years” joke anyway.

Anatomy Of A Horror Movie: What Really Scares Us
