(KTNV) -- It sounds like something out of a horror movie.

A Missouri woman is behind bars for allegedly putting on a ski mask and threatening her neighbors' kids with a chainsaw.

They neighbors say they are more scare of Lynn Marie Herzog than they have ever been.

Herzog was cutting up a tree last weekend that came down in her yard after a recent storm. She was wearing an open-face ski mask at the time.

A neighbor says that they saw Herzog walking towards her kids, screaming and shaking a chainsaw.

Herzog is facing a felony and is facing up to four years in prison if convicted.

The parents say they think a mental treatment facility would be the better way to go.
