The Friday the 13th franchise is one filled with stories of alternate cuts, excised gory shots and other changes made in the editing room. One example of this is the alternate ending for Friday the 13th Part 3.
Fridaythe13thFranchise.com in collaboration with a fella named Billy Kirkus present a series of unearthed photographs from the set of Steve Miner’s sequel that depicts Dana Kimmell’s Chris Higgins encountering Jason Voorhees outside of a cabin…and getting beheaded. There are enough photos here that you feel like you’re watching the scene really play out (actual footage still remains MIA).
Kane Hodder is slipping back into the decayed flesh of Jason Voorhees. But not for a movie. The Mad Mobster True Crime & Horror Expo is welcoming the actor, along with FX artist/director John Carl Buechler, to the show and he’ll be posing with fans in full make-up for photo opportunities as part of a ticket package.
Does this all sound familiar? It should. Earlier this year, Robert Englund donned the Freddy Krueger make-up one last time for Flashback Weekend (check out the video here).
The packaging for that 8-Bit Jason Voorhees mask – inspired by the Friday the 13th video game – has been unveiled. NECA is handling the release which arrives in November. Fridaythe13thFranchise.com shared the image you see below and I might just have to add this to my collection. Sure, it’s just a Jason mask that glows-in-the-dark, but I like the novelty of it. Plus it’ll go well with me 8-bit Jason figure.
The things you find on Instagram… The prints you see via our gallery here have been popping up in my feed, so I had to track down the artist and see what they were all about.
The man behind illustrations is Gabrial Hernandez of Worthy Enemies. He has reimagined some of the big contemporary icons of our time like Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Pennywise and Michael Myers. Prints of these bad boys are going to be made available via the Worthy Enemies site here. Right now, they’re just listed as “coming soon” but keep your eyes peeled!
The YouTube and Legendary short horror films initiative rolls on. Following yesterday’s “Modern Monster Mash,” Nerdist released “Lady Killers.”
Directed by Andrew Bowser, Lady Killers watches Matt Bennett (Victorious) as he finds out the perils of cosplay daydreams.
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?
