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.
A new Friday the 13th film is indeed coming. And Paramount has confirmed this by locking in a release date of March 13, 2015.
Yes, that’s a Friday the 13th. (The 13th also falls on a Friday in February of that year.)
We learned in June that Warner Bros. relinquished the rights to the franchise and gave them bag to Paramount. The studio had five years to get a new entry in theaters before those rights reverted back to WB.
Jason Voorhees’ iconic hockey mask has been reinterpreted by a handful of artists. The results are being auctioned off for charity on eBay. Michigan-based pop culture, film, and television t-shirt and costume website TVStoreOnline.com teamed up over the summer with former and current contestants from the Syfy Channel’s hit television series Face Off as well as actors from the Friday The 13th film franchise the charity fundraiser.
How many Jason Voorhees and Friday the 13th-related collectibles do you own? If you’re like me, probably enough to fill a box. Maybe more than one box (likely the case). Well, why not have more stuff, right?
Let us introduce you to the RIP Workshop. They have some killer custom-made stuff which includes 1/6-scale figures and sculpts for Evil Dead, Day of the Dead, Ghost Dog (?!), Halloween and – the whole point of this news item – Jason Voorhees. And that last one is pretty great.
Some creative liberties were taken, but they’re all good choices, and the surrounding display is cool, too.
…the catch is that you have to be in England to partake in this Jason Voorhees party.
The Prince Charles Cinema in London is holding a Friday the 13th Marathon on Friday, September 13th, showcasing parts 1 – 8. That’s great news for horror fans in the UK!
Parts 2 – 6 are said to be 35mm prints, sadly, part 3 will be in 2D. Apparently, the PCC had a similar marathon last year that became a smash success.
Platinum Dunes has a few projects on its slate that it’s completing, once those are done though, it’s time to return to Camp Crystal Lake.
The company is working – as previously reported – alongside Paramount for a new Friday the 13th film. And while there’s no real meat to this, it’s worth noting that Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller took to Twitter to give followers a timeline update as to when work will begin on the new Friday the 13th.
