While Leatherface is busy getting all of the love lately, our man Nomad has put together a stunning pictorial history of everyone's favorite mama's boy, Jason Voorhees, for his Idle Hands blog that's nothing short of a must see! Dig it!
We all know that Friday the 13th is one mama's boy's favorite day of the week, but ever wonder what happens the rest of the year? Is there some kind of prep that takes place, where does Jason chill when he's not busy dismembering folks?
When Annie first strolls into “Present Day” Crystal Lake at the start of Friday the 13th it seems like a picturesque and idyllic little town, doesn’t it? Yes, some terrible things happened there but it genuinely feels like a nice place to live, and with a strong sense of community to boot.
As much as I love it, the Friday the 13th series isn’t bound by strong continuity. Jason’s look fluctuates like the weather, people flock to Camp Crystal Lake in droves, and WHY does the camp look like it’s in a different state in every film (don’t answer that)?
In the world of Friday the 13th, “Death and Sex” replaces the old “Death and Taxes” adage with endless reliability. Jason’s always on the prowl for more victims, and what better way for him to pad his numbers than by catching folks not only amidst the throes of passion but also in their euphoric comedowns?
Hold on to your asses, kids. Or better yet... go hide your credit cards, your checkbook, and close your PayPal accounts lest you give up your children's college funds to get your claws into every one of these bad boys from NECA!
Toy Fair 2012: New from NECA - Jason Voorhees Unmasked, Freddy vs. Jason, Universal Bobbleheads, and Eddiie From Iron Maiden Bring the Plastic Based Chaos
Ah, now we're getting to the interesting stuff! NECA Toys has long been a staple on the collectibles scene thanks to its amazing molds and quality products. Few people do spooky as good as NECA does, and this latest batch of goodies is a sterling example of why!
NECA has been fulfilling dreams for some time now, and if you think that sentiment is silly, you are NOT a hardcore horror fan! What other company would do the leads from Lost Boys, Robocop, the first Terminator AND an entire line of Gremlins in both cute 'n fuzzy and mean 'n scary forms?!
Though Friday the 13th has come and gone, here's a new look at two of the franchise's titular killer - one from NECA, who teased just the head of its new Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter Voorhees collectible, and the other from Derek Mears, who played the big man himself in the Friday remake. Check 'em out!
B-Sides is arriving a little early this weekend because there’s no way I’m letting Friday the 13th pass without having a musical interlude in honor of Mr. Voorhees. The theme song to Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning may not have been written specifically for the film, but if ever there was a man with no life in his eyes, it’s Jason.
Jason Voorhees is a household name, there’s no arguing. Everyone may be familiar with the summer camp slasher’s iconic look as far as the hockey mask goes, but it’s a lot harder to find a definitive consensus on Mr. Voorhees’ most successful incarnation. It changes as often as the weather, and much more dramatically, to boot.
If you're not familiar with the Beat Down Boogie crew, they are a bunch of guerilla filmmakers who have one simple goal in mind: entertain the viewer. Although they normally operate in action-themed films, the crew does not classify itself, thus, the freedom to make this latest release. In honor of Halloween the Beat Down Boogie crew have re-envisioned the Jason Voorhees vs. Freddy Krueger battle with their latest short, Freddy vs. Jason: The Rematch.
You know a horror character has truly achieved iconic status when his likeness has become a staple of Halloween costuming and he gets mainstream musical acts singing songs about him. Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees both achieved that status back in the latter half of the 80’s, and they did it with a little help from The Fat Boys and Alice Cooper.
This morning we, like many of you, ran to our Xbox consoles and popped in Mortal Kombat to play and see just how well Freddy Krueger has been integrated into the game. The words "Flawless Victory" come to mind.
