Geek Apparel of the Week: Freddy Krueger as Rat Fink


This tribute to the creations of both Big Daddy Roth and Wes Craven will burn rubber and your face. Called the Dream Machine, it’s more of a nightmare on wheels – though the dreamcatcher gear-shift lever is a nice touch; just call him Indian burn-face.

Freddy not your jam? Fright Rags has also given the Kustom Kulture makeover to Leatherface and Jason. Given that Rat Fink himself was a riff on Mickey Mouse, it’s all very meta; a commentary, perhaps, on how cultural icons change over time.

Far more likely, though, that someone just thought it would look cool. And it does.
