With Halloween on the horizon, we thought it appropriate to interrupt our regularly scheduled programming. Instead, we’re taking a little detour into the spooky, strange and weird world of horror movies.

You’re no doubt familiar with Freddy Krueger’s iconic finger-blade glove from the Nightmare On Elm Street series. You’re probably aware of Jason Voorhees’ trusty machete used in all 12 (and counting) “Friday the 13th” films. You might even be acquainted with the chainsaw used by the creepy Leatherface in the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” franchise. But can you name any firearms used in these movies?

Scroll through the gallery above to learn more about 13 guns that can be seen in some of the most famous, or infamous, horror films of the past 50 years. Deciding which firearms would make the cut wasn’t an easy task. However, we’re confident we’ve come up with a worthy selection that will put you in the Halloween spirit.

And here’s a little bonus for you. Watch the famous GE M134 Minigun (used at the 20-second mark) from “Predator” in action. [Note: Brief explicit language used in the clip]
