Truth is certainly stranger than fiction sometimes. According to a story in the New York Post, Warrington Gillette, who played Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part 2, was injured during an event honoring the new remake.
Per the Post, Gillette got into full costume for the bash – complete with hockey mask and ax – and stepped onto the stage engulfed in smoke blown from dry ice. But he didn’t count on the crazed female fan who, witnesses said, ‘jumped on stage and tried to grab his ax.’ Gillette managed to wrestle it away but sliced his hand badly in the process.
‘It was straight out of a horror movie,’ one spy added. ‘Lingerie-clad models were running and screaming, as a blood-soaked Jason ran off the runway to get to a hospital.’
Sounds like a typical day at the Dread Central offices, no? On the serious side, however, we do wish Warren well!
