If you're interested in bizarre horror curios, it'll tickle you to check out one of the most charming tributes you'll ever see to Wes Craven's 1984 horror masterpiece, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Bollywood's 1993 Nightmare rip-off, Mahakaal, has all of the thrills, spills, and deranged dance numbers that you'd expect of a Hindi copy of an '80s horror movie.

Expect singing, dancing, torn-off faces and a whole lot of groping as our heroine Anita fights off child-murderer Shakaal, who has managed to kill her friends, Seema and Param, in their dreams. Oh, and Shakaal looks like this.

Aside from his funky mullet, Shakaal is a clear attempt to emulate the horror of Freddy Krueger — from his pizza face to his fuzzy sweater and knife fingers.

Credit where it's due, Mahakaal is only mildly more ridiculous than Rick & Morty's Scary Terry.

If you're feeling wildly brave — read: stoned — and want to watch Mahakaal in its entirety, here's the whole shebang on Youtube.

What's your favorite hilarious horror rip-off?
