Got 14 minutes? Remember when we told you about Slash/Up which teased an epic – and random – battle between Jason Voorhees and Sarah Connor? Well, the YouTube episode has hit the web. Watch it here.
Slash/Up‘s goal, according to a synopsis I was sent, is to “pit a different set of retro movie/geek culture icons against each in a totally unique, story driven mashup, wrapped around by debate and commentary.”
Trevor Henderson’s “Horror Hangers” series 2 is now available to order in his Etsy shop! If you recall, we brought your attention to this Canadian artist’s work when he released series 1, a loving tribute to old school Halloween decorations mixed with contemporary horror films. His latest line-up is inspired by A Nightmare on Elm Street, the Friday the 13th series, Alien, The Return of the Living Dead and Tombs of the Blind Dead. Killer stuff! If you want to add these to your decorations, you can buy ‘em here! Check out the latest designs below in addition to the series 1 designs.
So, the following video was sent my way. It’s a preview for a new web series called Slash/Up and it apparently pits Sarah Connor of the Terminator films against Jason Voorhees. What sense does that make?

In the midst of our San Diego Comic-Con 2014 coverage, we brought you a photo of something NECA had in the works: A replica of Jason Voorhees’ hockey mask from the Friday the 13th video game (pictured). For those who have inquired about it, NECA has revealed this will be available in November.
I supposed another title for this article could be “It Came from Instagram!” with an eerie theremin sound effect. So, there’s this talented fella I follow on Instagram named Ed Harrington (find his site here). He’s an illustrator, Star Wars and horror lover. He’s really into archery too, apparently.
Over the last few months, he’s been posting to his “Nothing Happened Today” Instagram account a series of mock Ikea instructions inspired by the likes of Hellraiser, the Friday the 13th series, The Fly and The Human Centipede. He’s thrown Edward Scissorhand into the mix, too.
The ALS ice bucket challenge has bled into the world of horror. Today, both Tyler Mane (Halloween) and Todd Farmer (Jason X, Drive Angry) took part in the movement that’s raising awareness about ALS and collecting donations. Everywhere you turn, folks are participating and taking their ice bucket challenge videos to social media.
Over the last 24 hours I’ve been seeing folks post awesome animation cell-style images of the Scooby-Doo gang meeting contemporary horror villains like Captain Spaulding, Ghostface, Michael Myers, Patrick Bateman, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. I don’t know where they originated, but we should credit artist “TB Real” apparently. (If anyone has more information, please let me know and I’ll update this item.) Loving these so much.
