Freddy Krueger is coming to Criminal Minds.

Robert Enguld, who has long portrayed the razor-handed villain in A Nightmare on Elm Street, will guest-star in an upcoming episode of the CBS procedural, Entertainment Weeklyreports.

The 64-year-old actor, who also appeared on Hawaii Five-0earlier this year, will play Det. Gassner, who helps the BAU with a case involving ritualistic murders. Buffy vet Juliet Landau, who played evil vampire Drusilla, will also guest-star as the ghost of a former actress who once had a psychotic break.

As TVGuide.com first reported, Veronica Mars alum Kyle Gallner and Californication's Madeleine Martin will also appear in this episode to be directed by star Matthew Gray Gubler.

Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS.
