An official statement on Amanda Righetti courtesy of Christian Sellers:
There has been speculation that Amanda Righetti has dropped out of the FRIDAY THE 13TH remake and replaced by actress Danielle Panabaker. This is simply not true. I would also like to address the misconception that Amanda is not the true female lead of the film. […]

Mrs Voorhees Was A Terrific Killer

Posted by Dusk on April 23rd, 2008 filed in New Friday

My only real beef with the new Friday is that it’s gonna mess up the trivia scene in Scream. You know the one, where the killer tricks Casey Becker by asking who the killer was in Friday the 13th. Naturally she answers “Jason” but the killer correctly points out that Jason’s mother Mrs Voorhees was […]

Posted by Dusk on April 15th, 2008 filed in New Friday

I’ve not included pictures (hit up the IMDB links) because we all know it doesn’t matter what Jason’s victims look like alive, it’s how they look dead (or naked, or dead and naked) that counts. Ch-Ch-Ch Muahaha. Source BD:
21-year-old Danielle Panabaker (Mr. Brooks, Sky High), Aaron Yoo (Disturbia, 21) and Travis Van Winkle (Transformers, […]

I hope her character dies so I can make a cheesy pun like “Righetti Got Turned Into Spaghetti”.

Posted by Dusk on April 3rd, 2008 filed in Uncategorized

Halloween: 25 Years Of Terror was a decent doco on the series and I can’t wait to see some of the same magic sprinkled on Friday The 13th. From Fangoria:
Fango has learned from producer Anthony Masi that FRIDAY THE 13TH creator Sean Cunningham has thrown his full support behind an all-encompassing documentary on the film […]

Derek Mears As Jason Voorhees

Posted by Dusk on April 2nd, 2008 filed in New Friday

It’d be ironic if Jason actually had a head of hair in this film. From BD:
This morning we received exclusive intel - which has been confirmed - that Derek Mears (picture inside; The Hills Have Eyes 2, Cursed) is in final talks to play Jason Voorhees in the remake of Friday the 13th for Platinum […]
