Looks like some poor U.K. horror fan ended up with a lump of coal in his stocking, because according to the London Telegraph, officials from the U.K. Border Agency seized a set of cool (but potentially deadly) claws it claims are similar to those worn by Robert Englund in Wes Craven's Nightmare on Elm Street films.

If you ask us, this sharp souvenir looks more like it was meant to be a Wolverine replica than anything Freddy Kreuger ever wore, but if you can't trust the U.K. Border Agency on sci-fi/horror neepery, who can you trust?
