Friday the 13th
Just a heads up in case you didn’t notice it; this weekend we posted two audio interviews with the cast of Friday the 13th, one with Jared Padalecki and one with the new Jason, Derek Mears.
In a good turn of events for R-rated horror, Platinum Dunes' reboot (the new, classier, way to say remake) of Friday the 13th has scared itself up some big box office this weekend, raking in an estimated 42 million, plus!
Just to prove that Creepy’s not the only one round these parts who gets to do cool stuff, check out some photographic evidence of my trip to the set of Friday the 13th in Austin, TX!
Here at Dread Central we have lots of different personalities. As a result, we have mega differences in opinion too. When a big movie like Friday the 13th comes around, sometimes the dissidence is so great that we need two reviews. Such is the case now.

Mezco is showing they care about movies and the toys that are made from them with a donation to the Museum of Motion Pictures in New York this week. Action Figure reports that they’ve handed the institute both a “sack head” and masked Jason Voorhees prototype from the Friday the 13th remake, which as you know is out this Friday.
Despite his success with "Celebrity Rehab" these days, Doctor Drew hasn't forgotten his roots and still appears every Sunday through Thursday night on the call-in radio show Loveline along with co-host Stryker. Joining them tonight will be Friday the 13th redux stars Derek Mears and Amanda Righetti.
I love home video. Thanks to DVD and Blu-ray when a movie comes home, it can often be a different version than the one released to theatres. Apparently the Friday the 13th remake is the latest case in point!
Paramount just released a new viral website that you can use to kill your friends! Or at least pretend you’ve sent Jason after them which, depending on your friend, could have the same effect...
This Tuesday, February 3rd, all sorts of masked antics are coming to DVD, including a fantastic retrospective on the entire history of the Friday the 13th series that features our own Uncle Creepy! Enjoy!
Pinhead, Ghost in a Shell, and Jason Voorhees might not have much in common on paper; but that’s not stopping Anchor Bay from grouping them all up at their booth at the New York Comic Con. The company is taking this opportunity to announce Blu-ray high definition releases of Hellraiser and Ghost in the Shell, as well as offering Q&A opportunities from producer Don Murphy.
Three years ago producer/writer Anthony Masi took on the legacy of Haddonfield’s most infamous resident, Michael Myers, in his documentary Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (review here).
Other than the news we gave you the other day about NECA nabbing the toy license for Dead Space and Devil May Cry, there’s not been a helluva lot of news out of this year’s UK Toy Fair, but there are a lot of images of what’s coming to us in the next year.
The boys at Bloody Disgusting got to chatting with the Platinum Dunes folks about the future of the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies, and basically got a lot of vague information that I’m sure fans will eat up anyway.
