McDONALD’S customers were left fearing for their lives during a terrifying Halloween stunt.
Families were confronted by a knife-wielding Michael Myers lookalike prowling the car park and stalking the drive-thru queue.
But the character from the Halloween films looked so sinister that some feared he might actually be a serial killer.
One customer, who asked not to be named, gesê: “I was queuing for a coffee and this figure appeared wearing a boiler suit and mask, carrying a big realistic-looking knife.
“He scared the living daylights out of me. For a second I actually thought he was going to kill me.
“There was a woman with two children in a car behind and I could hear the kids screaming. I saw one family leaving the restaurant.
“When they saw the bloke with the knife, they ran back inside to take cover.
“They might have wanted a show for Halloween, but when people actually fear for their lives, it’s obviously backfired. It wasn’t a very family-friendly stunt.”
