Interview with Diana Barrows (Maddy from The New Blood)

I unearthed this interview that was conducted by the guys at Icons of Fright around five years ago. Diana has been in the biz her entire life and not only acts, but sings and dances as well. During the interview she talks about her knowledge of five languages, her experience on Freddy’s Nightmares, working with [...]

Bracket Challenge: The Pranksters

Bracket Challenge: The Pranksters

This genre of character was a staple of the slasher movie in the early to mid eighties. It seemed every movie had that silly guy trying to impress a girl with his crazy antics or he was just looking for attention. In the Friday series, this character showed up in the first three movies and [...]

Sideshow Collectables Jason Part 3 Prototype

Sideshow Collectables Jason Part 3 Prototype

I completely missed the auction on eBay for this figure and I have no idea how. I usually keep up on these kind of auctions, but this one was for a truly rare and unique collectable. Sideshow recently sold a prototype of a Jason figure that was in development before they had lost their license [...]

Crazy Ralph Bust In The Works

Crazy Ralph Bust In The Works

I have been saying for a couple of years now that I wish we would start seeing masks and/or busts of other main characters from the franchise. I think a collection of busts that included Jason, victims and survivors would add a lot to the overall feel of a fans collection.
Well now, Lewis, has posted [...]

A Tribute to Junior and Ethel

A Tribute to Junior and Ethel

I was thinking we could use some good ol fashion laughs to get through Saturday night. After making the bracket challenge for Mothers of Friday the 13th, I seriously thought about posting this following video with Ethel, but I thought it might sway too many votes. Since the voting is pretty much done on that [...]

Bracket Challenge: Mothers of Friday the 13th

Bracket Challenge: Mothers of Friday the 13th

UPDATE: VOTING HAS CLOSED ON THIS DIVISION
Mothers are very important to their children’s upbringing. Kids are known to be mirror images of their parents and exhibit the same peronality traits of their parents. This newest division showcases some gentle and some very tough mommas. You will notice a very important mother is missing from this [...]

Part 3 Store Filming Location

Part 3 Store Filming Location

There has been a lot of activity lately in finding filming locations. Technology such as Google Earth has really opened up the search capabilities of the fans. It’s a lot of fun to go on the hunt to find these locations and every time something new is found I think it’s worth mentioning. I hadn’t seen [...]

Trip Back in Time...  Friday the 13th: The Revenge

Trip Back in Time… Friday the 13th: The Revenge

I had heard a lot about this movie, but unfortunately, I have never seen it. It was released in 2004 and I was hoping it may have been uploaded to Youtube or some website similar to that. After visiting the Friday the 13th community, I found a thread by the films creator. He is in [...]

Bracket Challenge: Jason Hunters

Bracket Challenge: Jason Hunters

UPDATE: VOTING ON THIS DIVISION HAS CLOSED
Jason has attracted a lot of attention over the years. His fan club has grown more and more in the past 30 years. But every so often he attracts those people that don’t particularly care for him. In fact, they go out of their way to let him know [...]

Joe Bob Briggs' Friday the 13th Marathon

Joe Bob Briggs’ Friday the 13th Marathon

I loved Joe Bob’s shows and nothing was cooler than watching his Friday the 13th Maraton that ran on TNT in 1998. I watched all six movies. I wish I could have recorded the whole show, but luckily a fan was able to record half of his show and post it on YouTube. Below are [...]

The Legend of Wickedbeard!

The Legend of Wickedbeard!

To some, he is simply known as Jeff. To a legion of online folk as well as convention attendees, he has grown into somewhat of a legend known simply as Wickedbeard! The man with the very fitting name, given that you never know what shape or form his beard will take on next, has carved [...]

Monsters HD and Friday the 13th

Monsters HD and Friday the 13th

I really miss this channel and everything they stood for. I could literally leave this station on all day long. It is the single reason I got Dish Network a few years back. After they cancelled Monsters HD I went with Direct TV and now I can watch the NFL all Sunday on the Ticket. [...]
