Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep.

It would be safe to say this is the single most disgusting piece of apparel we’ve ever sold and will ever sell. If you’ve seen Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, you’ll remember the scene where Freddy rips open his sweater and reveals the writhing faces of the souls trapped inside. That’s not the sort of thing you forget (that and the soul pizza). Now you can ensure you have the sort of Halloween costume that people have nightmares over, too.

The iconic Freddy Krueger sweater has been transformed to look as if it is showing Freddy’s burned torso and the souls trapped therein. But you know, that wouldn’t be enough to get it our “most disgusting” rating. Here goes. When activated, the faces in the chest piece contort and cry out courtesy of sound files from the movie. If your stomach starts grumbling at the party, nobody will ever be the wiser.

Warning: keep away from fire. No, seriously. The box says that. If they’d kept away from fire to start with, none of this would have happened.
