Friday the 13th: The Game – How to Kill Jason



Killing Jason in Friday the 13th: The Game is pretty damned hard, and doing so requires LOTS of cooperation between you and your fellow camp counselors and a little help from one of Jason’s greatest nemeses.

So, how do you put down everyone’s favorite mama’s boy? Follow the steps below. Of course SPOILERS are about to ensue so STOP reading here if you don’t want to know what to do and who Jason’s nemesis is.

Still with us? GOOD!


Locate the CB Radio.

Once you locate the CB radio, you can use it to call in none other than Tommy Jarvis (Friday the 13th Parts 4-6). In order to get Jarvis into the game, one of the counselors will have to either escape or make the ultimate sacrifice for the team and let Jason get an easy kill. The now either escaped or dead player will come back as Jarvis, and he’s a man on a mission: Kill Jason.

Step 2:

Locate Pamela Voorhees’ Sweater.

We’ve all seen the shrine Jason set up for his mom. Good Jason. Good boy. Good. The next step is electing someone playing as a female character to go to Jason’s house and find the infamous article of clothing. Once she does and puts it on, it gives that player a ONE-TIME USE ONLY ABILITY that allows Jason to be stunned and confused. Think Ginny in Friday the 13th Part 2. More on that in a minute.

Be warned as soon as you enter the Shrine, whoever is playing as Jason will get an alert and he can teleport directly to there. NOT EASY.

Step 3:

Stun Jason and Knock His Mask Off.

Easier said than done, believe me. Jason will need to be stunned or trapped. Our recommendation is to lure him into a previously set bear trap. Once he’s still, you’ll need a weapon to bash the hell out of his skull, and his mask will (eventually) go flying off. It helps to have multiple counselors hitting him at the same time. Jason, as you know, is a pretty tough sonofabitch so expect some casualties. The machete works best at getting the mask off.

Interestingly enough… the person playing as Jarvis can grab the mask and put it on at this point, but that doesn’t seem to be a necessity in getting the job done. However, if Jarvis has the mask, Jason cannot get it back, so your won’t be forced to repeat the above step.

Step 4:

Sweater Time!

You… you wearing Pamela’s sweater, while Jason is unmasked, NOW is the time to use your sweater to stun Jason. You’ll even get to hear Pamela talking to Jason, thereby confusing him and making him drop his guard. This is so fucking cool. Make sure you’re (or a teammate) is holding a baseball bat or ax to instantly knock Jason to his knees. Hesitate when Jason drops his guard and you will be murdered.

Step 5:

The Death Blow.

Once Jason is on his knees, the player who is Tommy Jarvis must approach him and hit whatever button is INTERACT on your controller. NOTE: Tommy must have either an ax or a machete. Once you do that, BOOM!… a cut-screen showing off Tommy killing Jason… at least for now.

Jason Lives Director Pitched Follow-Up: Jason Vs Cheech and Chong



One of my favorite entries in the Friday the 13th series is director ‘s Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The mixture of old-school gothic horror and comedy is always a welcome treat around these parts.

But why wasn’t McLoughlin asked to write and direct the follow-up?

Actually, it turns out he was asked to follow up Jason Lives, McLoughlin recently told Mick Garris on the Post Mortem podcast.

But his pitch – Jason vs Cheech and Chong – didn’t go over so well…

“[Frank Mancuso Jr.] wanted me to do another film after we did Jason,” McLoughlin says. “And I said, ‘What are you thinking? I don’t know what it could be now.’ And he said, ‘Well, what do you think about Freddy (Krueger) and Jason?’ And I go, ‘But Freddy’s at New Line and the guys at Paramount have [Jason].’ And it’s like, ‘Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.’ So, I started thinking about that, going, It doesn’t make sense. I mean he lives in one realm and — you know, I take this stuff very seriously, what realm a monster’s supposed to stay in. And he came back, he goes, ‘Eh, forget it, it’s not going to work anyway.’ And I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.’”

Too bad. While I don’t know how well a Cheech and Chong/Friday the 13th flick would go, with McLoughlin at the helm, the film would have at least been funny as hell.

Plus we already got these two knuckleheads in Part III.

Are you upset we never got Tom McLoughlin’s Jason vs Cheech and Chong? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

Blade Runner 2049’s Lackluster Box-Office Still a Mystery to Director Denis Villeneuve



This past summer we were hit by director Denis Villeneuve’s stunning sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. While a hit with the critics and the audience that saw it, the film didn’t pull in quite the money the studio hoped for. Especially considering its budget.

With a budget of $150 million Blade Runner 2049 only managed to gather $89 million at the domestic box-office and $163 million worldwide.

Why didn’t the film make more cash? Well, director Denis Villeneuve has a few theories that he recently shared with Cinema Blend.

“I’m still digesting it,” he told the site. “I think because maybe people were not familiar enough with the universe. And the fact that the movie’s long [2 hours, 44 minutes run time]. I don’t know. It’s still a mystery to me. I make movies — I don’t sell them.”

Why do you think Blade Runner 2049 didn’t pull in more cash at the domestic box-office? Let us know in the comments below!

Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script by Hampton Fancher (who wrote the original) and Michael Green. The script is based off a story by Hampton Fancher, which is in turn based on the original film’s source material “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” by Phillip K. Dick.

The film stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Edward James Olmos, David Dastmalchian, Lennie James, Barkhad Abdi, Sylvia Hoeks, Hiam Abbass, Carla Juri, David Benson, Ellie Wright, and Kingston Taylor.


Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

David Lynch Says There May Be a Fourth Season of Twin Peaks



This past year we saw the release of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” on Showtime. And while the series was strange as hell (go figure) I enjoyed ever crazy-ass floor-sweeping, face-punching-off minute of it.

But will there be a fourth season? After all, we had to wait the better part of three decades to get this new third season.

Well, writer-director David Lynch was recently speaking with THR and eventually, the conversation turned to if there will ever be a fourth season to which Lynch replied:

“I don’t know,” Lych said. “It’s too early to say that right now…I’ve learned never say never.”

Good enough for me!

I don’t know if you watched “Twin Peaks: The Return” so I’m not going to go into spoilers here, but I will say the end left the door wide as f*ck open for a fourth season.

What did you think of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return”? Would you be excited about a fourth season? Let us know below or on social media!

“Twin Peaks: The Return” hits Blu-ray December 5, 2017.



Picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town are stunned when their homecoming queen is murdered.
