Scrat from Ice Age Sighted in Original A Nightmare on Elm Street Poster

I came upon this classic poster of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street poster in Wikipedia and I saw a familiar face in it. It's the bug-eyed creature at the top left. I don't know exactly what it is but it looks like our lovable and clumsy fanged squirrel Scrat from the Ice Age movies!

Who could have known that the saber-toothed squirrel was already active in show business as early as 1984, when the original Nightmare written and directed by Wes Craven came out. Interestingly, that was also star Johnny Depp's first feature film.

The reemagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) is directed by Samuel Bayer and stars Jackie Earle Haley in the role of Freddie Kreuger. He also played Rorschach in Watchmen.

Who would not choose a Freddy Krueger costume for Halloween when they have these metal claws of the nightmare crasher himself! Yes, they're metal and as nasty-looking as the prop in the movie! Click here or on the image to place your order.
