This is a good video tour of some of the filming locations for the film. The video was posted in November 2008, so it is pretty recent. The person who is filming the video was unable to get into the camp ground, but does show the entrance to the area. Check out how little the [...]

Bracket Challenge Round 2: Prophet of Doom vs Prankster

Bracket Challenge Round 2: Prophet of Doom vs Prankster

VOTING HAS CLOSED
I thought that this would be an interesting matchup. You have two of the franchise’s marquee characters. They are recognizable by anyone who has followed the franchise. One character is iconic for telling them they’re al doomed and the other for giving Jason his iconic mask. Which character will survive to Round 3?
Crazy [...]

Italian Jason X PhotoBusta Posters

Italian Jason X PhotoBusta Posters

These posters are from the original Italian release of the film. They measure 18 in x 26 in (47cm x68cm), which to me is basically oversized lobby cards. As a stand alone movie, I liked Jason X. It was a lot of fun. Yes, Jason flying in space was a very poor moment in the [...]

Jason Lives and The New Blood Mexican Lobby Cards

Jason Lives and The New Blood Mexican Lobby Cards

These are pretty hard to come by and I have not seen these around of late. I would really like to own the complete set of each movie’s lobby card set. The Jason lives card is in kind of bad shape, but still would be cool to own. I found these at eBay, but the [...]

Bracket Challenge Round 2: Jason Hunter vs Kid of Friday the 13th

VOTING HAS CLOSED
I know that you have seen the bracket that I have been posting throughout the challenge. Each week I added the winner from a specific division and in no specific order. The initial matchups based on the bracket were never meant to be permanent as I had no idea which character would advance [...]

Venezuelan Jason Takes Manhattan Poster

Venezuelan Jason Takes Manhattan Poster

I haven’t seen too many foreign posters out there for Jason Takes Manhattan recently, but I came across this one and there isn’t anything different outside of the different language. However, I love the way “Martes 13″ looks on anything that is Friday the 13th. Also, I like that the subtitle is “Jason Invade Manhattan”.
