Jason Voorhees

Jason ... The Thinker!

Gentle Giant is in command of the New Line Cinema House of Horrors license for statues and busts, and so far they've gone from ultra realistic to Tex Avery cartoony in 3.2 seconds. Now...we get a somber piece. Jason sits in his childhood bed, clutching a doll that reminds him of his lost innocence while his subconscious has him stabbing the hat of Freddy Krueger, the man that epitomizes the rape of children's dreams. DEEP! Let's read the propaganda ...

The Buz: Jason Drops the Iron Curtain

Before the Internet, and before The Simpsons themed Clue board game, the Cold War was in strong effect with Americans fearing for their very existence. That's why they sent the only man they felt properly represented them to defeat the Soviet threat. A man who was a walking shit storm of death, destruction, patriotism, good ol' fashion family values, and a simple but strong hatred for teenagers and good times.

The Buz is Back!

Now this has been a long time coming! You may remember a semi-regular column of bizarreness called The Buz: Horror vs. Teh Interwebz, which took "normal" movies and re-imagined them with internet speak. The man behind the series, Buz "Danger" Wallick, spent the better part of last year in a Turkish prison thanks to his last entry, but we're happy to announce that he's free and ready to corrupt your favorite films all over again!

Unlucky Weekend for Friday the 13th

A steep drop-off in box office is not all that surprising after a film opens to huge numbers, but an 80% drop-off? That cuts worse than a machete to the head. Jason must have worn out his lower half doing all that running in his new film because he sure doesn't have any legs.

Friday the 13th Interviews!

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.

Toy Fair 09: New Mezco!

Nomad just turned in the first batch of toy photos from this year’s Toy Fair, currently stomping it’s way through New York City. The other day we showed you guys the Ghostbusters and Terminator 2 Minimates from Diamond Select, now we’ve got a whole batch of goodies from Mezco to show off!

Friday the 13th Makes a Killing at the Box Office

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!

When Johnny Met Jason

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!

Friday the 13th Reviews!

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 Donates Jason to Museum of Motion Pictures

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.

NYCC: Mezco Unleashes New Jason & Leatherface Figures

With the new Friday the 13th film just around the corner, what could be a better time to unveil a new Jason figure than the NYCC, which was held just a week prior to the film's opening? To further sweeten the pot, we'll throw in a look at the new Leatherface figure, too. Whatcha waiting for? Look in here!
