(Newser) – A slasher fan will be locked up in Britain after attacking his buddy with a homemade Freddy Krueger glove. Prosecutors extracted from Jason (!) Moore, a Leicester stonemason, that he’d seen Nightmare on Elm Street more than 20 times (itself somewhat horrifying) before he slashed his friend (passed out at Moore’s house after the two drank a gallon of cider) a la Freddy.

The ersatz prop/weapon, complete with the trademark razor-sharp talons, was “clearly a labour of love,” according to prosecutors. Moore got his own nightmare—life in prison—for the bizarre attack. “This was probably the most horrific weapon I have ever seen,” said the chief investigator, who obviously hasn’t seen The Hills Have Eyes.
