The film and TV memorabilia auction will feature more than 1,800 items during the four-day event starting on November 9, with auction house Propstore expecting to fetch over £12 million in total.
Among the top-tier horror items is Freddy Krueger’s (Robert Englund) screen-matched hero glove with razor blade fingers and an original hand-drawn design of the piece from 1984 classic film A Nightmare On Elm Street – which is estimated to sell for up to £400,000.

Screen-matched means the item is uniquely identified as the same on screen.

Johnny Depp character Sweeney Todd’s razor blades from 2007 film Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street is expected to raise up to £30,000 during the live auction, while Leatherface’s (R A Mihailoff) human “skin” mask from Jeff Burr’s 1990 thriller Texas Chainsaw Massacre III could fetch up to £25,000.

The auction will also see Poltergeist star Oliver Robins’s autograph book alongside an autographed cast photo wich could fetch up to £12,000.
US actor Robins, who played Robbie in the 1982 hit, said: “I’m thrilled to offer everyone a piece of cinematic history – my original autograph book from the set of Poltergeist.
“This cherished relic holds the signatures of many incredibly talented cast and crew I had the privilege to work alongside on this iconic horror film.
“Now, it’s time to entrust it to a new caretaker who will cherish and preserve this unique piece of movie magic.
“Each page is a vivid reminder of the passion and camaraderie that fuelled our efforts in bringing this cinematic masterpiece to life.”
