The "spooky sandwich" has a quarter pounder of beef, a chicken filet, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onion.

It does have a moldy-green colored bun, after all.

The fast-food chain is releasing the "Nightmare King" next week, which will be available through November 1.

Burger King is also offering the flawless spooky drink to help wash down the nightmare burger.


Burger King has changed its menu in honor of Halloween, releasing the "Nightmare King" sandwich next week. This burger isn't just any burger.

Bryan (FastFoodBryan) tells Chew Boom that the upcoming Philly Cheese King will be "very similar to the Extra Long Philly Cheeseburger that Burger King offered a couple of years ago".

To prove that the sandwich causes nightmares, Burger King partnered with the Paramount Trials and Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services and branding firm Goldforest on a study conducted over 10 nights.

The video includes a number of research subjects eating their nightmare burgers before undergoing a sleep study.


Another participant recalled someone in her dream turned into the burger - and that person then turned in to snake.

"According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night", said Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, the study's lead doctor, per USA Today.

Dr. Medina goes on to explain that the combination of proteins and cheese interrupts the rapid eye movement cycles during which most people's dreams happen, thus leading to the spike in bad dreams.

That's all well and good, but isn't there also a distinct difference between having nightmares because something scared you versus having nightmares because your dinner was an assault on your vital organs?!
