From playing the part of Thug in ‘Manimal’ in 1983, then suddenly becoming a terror icon a year later as Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund’s sharknado of success was an immediate blessing. Like many typecast actors before him, Englund’s career as the monster from A Nightmare On Elm St.locked him into horror roles ever since.

While many of us NerdBastards are ready for the zombie apocalypse to happen, it seems that the local news still needs some practicing to report when it happens.

A local Louisiana NBC news reported on how a family’s camp was destroyed and before the camera met the same fate, we got the picture posted above, which was found on the sim card that was laying around.

Hell, I would have gone to the camp site to check it out to see if the the thing exist… of course, me being the fat bastard, I probably would be an easy target.
