Searching for his missing sister, Clay heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins that lie in wait behind moss-covered trees. And that’s not the only thing hiding under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they’ve entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history – the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake armed with a razor-sharp machete…Jason Voorhees.

Kevin Bacon Reprises Friday the 13th Role for Commercial
Kevin Bacon participated in a few commercials for the UK mobile network EE. The actor good-heartedly slips back into the skin of previous films roles, including his turn in Friday the 13th. See him – with his green tank top, arrow sticking out of his chest – interact with other “Bacons” from A Few Good Men, Apollo 13 and Footloose. It’s a fun tip-of-the-hat not only to his past, but to practical FX. It’s also nice to see him embrace his horror roots, especially since he didn’t appear in the documentaries His Name Was Jason or Crystal Lake Memories.

The Friday the 13th Reboot Turns 5 & Why I’ll Always Defend It
Five years ago today, the Friday the 13th reboot hit the screen. The film had claimed a Friday, February 13, 2009 release, while another slasher movie opening that season – My Bloody Valentine 3D – arrived a month earlier on January 16th, a good distance from an apropos Valentine’s Day holiday debut. So, instead of getting a Valentine’s-themed massacre on February 13th, we received a love letter to Jason Voorhees and his Crystal Lake exploits. Yes, a love letter. Friday the 13th grossed nearly $100 million worldwide upon its release, but it divided horror fans…surprise, surprise. I know that if I look hard enough, I’ll find those who dig this reboot like I do. But I know I’m in the minority and, frankly, I don’t understand why.

Radio Shack Jason is Actually the Grandson of a Former Jason
Those Radio Shack Super Bowl ads brought a grin to Friday the 13th fans when they saw Jason Voorhees make an appearance (check them both out here). That grin, however, then paved the way for questions like, “Why is dressed like that when he should be in ’80s garb?” and other hardcore fan inquiries. Then came, “Who’s the man behind the mask?” Because, of course, we all need to know who our Jason actors are. Leave it to Yahoo! to get to the bottom of this. The answer to that question is surprising!
