How to Make The Oft-Delayed FRIDAY THE 13TH Film a Success

It seems astounding that any studio would have relentless issues in bringing a new FRIDAY THE 13TH film to the big screen. Financially speaking the franchise has been an overwhelming success; 12 total films (this includes FREDDY VS. JASON) have garnered a worldwide box office haul of $445,239,523 and the 2009 reboot did $91,379,051 alone. […]

Watch Every Kill In The New FRIDAY THE 13TH Video Game!

I’m pretty jealous of my video game savvy friends! It’s not that I don’t like video games. It’s just for me, personally, it’s been so long since I’ve invested in any particular gaming console that I’d feel completely lost if you put a controller in my hand and queued up any modern game. That said, […]

Sean Cunningham Offers Update On Upcoming FRIDAY THE 13TH TV Series!

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the proposed FRIDAY THE 13TH TV series. Multiple reports have declared the TV iteration of Jason Voorhees all but dead, but as we know, you can’t ever really kill Jason, can you? Especially considering how many horror properties have successfully made the jump to TV storytelling. […]

Five FRIDAY THE 13TH Characters That Deserve Action Figures

In the world of toys, the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise has gotten so much love over the years that it’s become hard to even keep track of all the different action figures. Companies like McFarlane Toys, Sideshow Collectibles, Mezco, and NECA have milked the franchise for (almost) all it’s worth, collectively putting out toys based […]

It’s Time To Give JASON GOES TO HELL Another Chance

OK. Imagine this premise for a horror movie. It opens exactly like any other traditional 80’s “slasher” movie. A beautiful, voluptuous girl gets settled into a secluded cabin. Just as she’s about to retire to a nice hot bath, a crazed masked maniac shows up and they have a confrontation and chase through the nearby […]

DOUBLE TAKE – FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980) / FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009)

To me, the key to a truly great “remake” of a pre-existing horror film is simple. Would the new update make a good double feature with the original movie? When it comes to programming a double bill, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]

When Freddy Met Jason… And Leatherface And Michael Myers

It was Halloween weekend of 2003 while I was attending the 25th anniversary convention in Pasadena that I first became familiar with this epic photograph of Freddy with Jason, Leatherface and Michael Myers. Until then, I was completely unaware of its existence, or even the fact that these legendary titans of terror had ever been […]
