Two homeless men in Houston were taken to the hospital after a grisly attack patterned after a horror film series.


According to KPRC-TV, a witness said he told police the two men were attacked Thursday morning by a man wearing a hockey mask and wielding a machete, in the style of Jason Voorhees, the serial killer featured in the Friday The 13th films.

The two men were squatting behind the construction site for a shopping center and were allegedly asleep when the man attacked them.

KTRK-TV reported that one of the men allegedly lost five fingers in the assault after being repeatedly struck with the machete, while the other one suffered three broken fingers, two broken arms, and several lacerations to his neck.

KPRC's report on the attack, aired Thursday, can be seen below.
