Friday Conversation: Which Characters Should Survive?

Friday Conversation: Which Characters Should Survive?

Everyone has their favorite character in the franchise that you wish had been left alive. I personally think that Rob in The Final Chapter should have survived, but his death scene was powerful and actually enhanced the movie. Another character I think should have survived was Crazy Ralph. I don’t know why they killed him [...]

Jason X German Video Store Standee

Jason X German Video Store Standee

Mario was nice enough to send me some photos of a Jason X standee he acquired a few years back from a local video store. I am impressed  at the size of the standee, it coming from a video store and all. I would think it came from a theater lobby. Very cool! Thanks, Mario.

Bracket Challenge Round 2: The Final Guy vs Biker of Higgens Haven

Bracket Challenge Round 2: The Final Guy vs Biker of Higgens Haven

VOTING CLOSED
For some, Ali is a relative unknown character that shows up for a few minutes in the movie and gets killed by Jason in a few short seconds, twice. However, his character broke the mold of the original four movies in the series as the only African American male character to be created for [...]

Chiller Theater Con This Weekend

Friday Sequel Still Awaiting Green Light

Friday Sequel Still Awaiting Green Light

Brad Fuller added the following to his Twitter page today:
on the mixing stage working on NOES. Still hoping for some good news that will take us back to Crystal Lake.
Even though Warner Bros. and New Line have announced the release date of August 13, 2010 for the Friday the 13th sequel, it seems as though [...]

Korean Commercial For The Final Chapter

Korean Commercial For The Final Chapter

I have a lot of appreciation for the foreign marketing of the franchise, so anytime I come across these types of items I like to post them for everyone to view. Check out this commercial below. I love the Korean characters!
I like the quick editing to the kills in the commercial. It pretty much tells [...]

Bracket Challenge Round 2: Camp Director vs The Final Girl

Bracket Challenge Round 2: Camp Director vs The Final Girl

VOTING CLOSED
So this matchup will draw a very narrow line in the sand between people’s favorite character and the character that should win based on the actions that were carried out in Part 2. At this moment I still do not know who I will choose, but needless to say, it will take a few [...]

A New Beginning French Poster

A New Beginning French Poster

I have always liked the international poster for A New Beginning compared to the US poster and video release cover. I really like this French poster for the movie with the hockey mask immersed in a red light. I also like the blood dripping off of the machete. I kept hoping that Paramount would use [...]

For All Of The Fans of Hip Hop/Rap

I debated even putting this up today, but I figured we add so many other things on a daily basis, why not this. I found this yesterday and just had to laugh. Lil’ Wayne in a hockey mask, all 4 feet of him, is a sight that must be seen. This “album” is being promoted [...]

Rumor Control: Friday the 13th Sequel

Rumor Control: Friday the 13th Sequel

This weekend I have received a few emails pertaining to the imminent sequel. A few of our visitors pointed out that imdb.com has Tom Savini listed for the special effects and Kane Hodder working on stunts for the new film. Neither have been confirmed our even mentioned by Platinum Dunes for the sequel. I have [...]

Image of the unknown origin.

Image of the unknown origin.

Maybe I’ve just been gone a little too long, but this is an image only a mother could love. I don’t know if it’s photoshopped or an image from a deleted scene in the series. One thing is for sure, it’s a great image of mother and son. This was my first time discovering it, [...]

Two Jasons, one similar look.

Thanks to a crafty screen capture, I was able to get a good view of the 2009 Jason unmasked. I noticed quite the similarities he has with Warrington Gillette’s unmasked Jason. Of course the 2009 version has no facial hair, but still the creators must of used the looks of the Gillette-Jason to craft the [...]

Friday Conversation: Should Paramount Have Created A New Beginning?

Friday Conversation: Should Paramount Have Created A New Beginning?

After the success of Part 3, I was surprised that Paramount decided to make their next movie in the franchise the last. I was young when the The Final Chapter was released in theaters, I believe I was 10. However, even then I was stunned that they would stop making them. Of course, The Final Chapter also [...]

Jason Takes Manhattan Video Store Display

Jason Takes Manhattan Video Store Display

Mario sent me these photos of a cardboard standee he bought from a video store a while back where he lives in Germany. The interesting thing we noticed is that the hockey mask shown is from Jason Lives and not Jason Takes Manhattan. Anyway, I have never seen anything like this before for the movie. [...]
