His Name was Jason on DVD February 3rd!

What I never understood about '80s pop culture was the focus on Freddy Krueger.

The official website for the Platinum Dunes remake of Friday the 13th, starring Derek Mears as our favorite masked killer, has just become active. Sadly, there's not much on the site aside from a high resolution image of Jason's mask as it was seen in the recent posters.
