Watch Friday the 13th (1980), Have Q&A With Betsy Palmer!

Fan Games: Germaniac’s Jason X and Jason’s Rampage

I know that a lot of fans of the franchise have been longing for a quality Friday the 13th video game to play. As we are no where near this happening as of right now, I think fan created games are pretty remarkable in their own right. Germaniac, who has been a long time member [...]

Icons of Fright Interview with Betsy Palmer

Icons of Fright Interview with Betsy Palmer

Icons of Fright posted an interview with Betsy back in 2004 and since there aren’t a lot of in-depth interviews with her, I found this to be fascinating as a fan of not only Friday the 13th, but of cinema in general.
Actress Betsy Palmer has had a long and incredible career working along such established actors as [...]

Young Jason Voorhees Mask/Bust For Sale

As you don’t normally see too many of these types of masks made or even sold, I thought that this was a bit refreshing to find out there. This mask is made by Jason Wylde and is up for sale at eBay right now.  I think the mask is a pretty fair rendition of Ari [...]

Preview of One’s Custom’s The New Blood Figure

His custom figures are truly amazing and blow away anything that Neca or Mezco have been releasing lately. Now you get a sneak peak of his newest Jason creation.

Custom Mezco 3 3/4 inch “Jason Takes Manhattan” Figure (NEW PICS ADDED 9/28)

With a little paint, time, and imagination, it’s pretty awesome what you can add to your Friday the 13th collection. Recently, Mezco release their 3 3/4 Cinema of Fear series featuring Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, and of course, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.

Friday Conversation: What Should Be In The Sequel

Friday Conversation: What Should Be In The Sequel

I know that everyone is torn over the new movie. It has it’s bright spots and it’s dull spots. The franchise is still in a great position now as the producers will have more freedom to take the movie in any direction they would like now that the whole reboot aspect is gone from the [...]

Warhawk Hock Perfect For New Movies

Warhawk Hock Perfect For New Movies

I know that all of the Friday fans were happy that the reboot utilized the original hockey mask look from the original franchise. I, however, think that if the movie was going to be a true reboot, they should have changed up the look of the mask. I think this “Warhawk” mask would be the [...]

Rob Zombie Interview With Kane Hodder

Rob Zombie Interview With Kane Hodder

This interview is about a year old as this was conducted as part of AMC fearfest last October, but how many times will you see Rob Zombie interview Kane Hodder. Not too much new in the interview that we haven’t heard before, but I like to see Kane candid and relaxed as he is with [...]

Mother’s Day is based on the story made into a novel of the same name, which was written by William Pattison (aka Eric Morse). Check out the interview [...]

Halloween Costumes: Jason Big Bruizer

Since we are in the Halloween season now, I thought it relevant to see what Jason costumes are out there for people to buy.
