Friday the 13th Week: 6 Reasons Why The 2009 Friday The 13th Reboot Sucked

***Originally Posted 5/13/2016***
There is a lot not to like about the 2009 FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, it was awfully written (by a cadre of writers no less) and mundanely directed and had the unmitigated gall to actually have Jason Voorhees running. Running I say!!! Jason doesn’t run; he walks at a brisk pace but that is about it. But those are not even the things that I am most bothered by. So with that in mind I present to the world on this Friday the 13 of May in the year of our Lord 2016 my top 6 reasons for why the FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot sucked.

Why I’m Mrs Voorhees, An Old Friend Of The Christy’s

The fine toy making folks over at NECA have made one of my Friday the 13th wishes come true by announcing they are going to be making a Pamela Voorhees action figure. I have wanted a plastic simulation of the maniacal mom (in the likeness of the amazing Betsy Palmer) to decorate my desk and now I only have to wait a little bit longer.

You Could Have Coffee With Jason Voorhees Every Morning

All you would have to do is scrounge up 800 smackeroonies and order this snazzy hand crafted Jason Voorhees Friday the 13th coffee table made by the fine folks down under at SlaughterFX. The detail on this piece of furniture is insane all the way down to Jason’s exposed and decaying rib cage. Check out more pics after the cut.

Happy Black History Friday the 13th!

Another Friday the 13th is upon us and as luck has it this one falls within the month of February which is also Black History Month.

The Best Horror Movie Franchises Ranked By Me

Earlier this week I saw that there was a list ranking the horror movie franchises on Gawker and thought it would be a good idea to do here. My rules however are a bit different than what the folks at Gawker used. For my list the rules are as follows:

3. “VS” movies (like Aliens vs Predators and Freddy vs Jason) are not counted.
4. Must be horror flicks. Duh.

So on to my list.
