Freddy Krueger terrified countless moviegoers who saw 1984's "Nightmare on Elm Street" (and its subsequent sequels), and a photo that surfaced on Reddit offers a new glimpse into what it took to transform Robert Englund from ordinary man into horrifying monster.

In the photo, Englund is seen in the makeup chair as a mustachioed man looks on intently, presumably at his own work. It's hard to know what's scarier: As one Reddit user commented, "Freddy! Watch out! There's a creepy guy in a 80's mustache behind you!"

Take a look at the photo and a non-Krueger snap of Englund below.
