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.
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.
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. So in honor of the stars aligning these two auspicious occasions together I decided to put together a super-cut of all of the fine young (and some not so young) black actors to have the honor of a gruesome onscreen death at the hands of Pamela Voorhees’ overly exhuberant bouncing baby boy.
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:
1. To qualify as a franchise there must be at least 3 movies released.
2. Remakes of movies can be counted as part of the franchise.
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.
If there is one thing Jason Voorhees loves almost more than killing everyone he meets is the ladies. The proof is in the pudding, folks! Jason loves to spend as much time as possible with members of the fairer sex. Sure he gets all stabby and hacky with them but no one is perfect. With that in mind I have put together this list of the best Final Girls to ever come up against Jason and live to tell the tale.
I think it is safe to say that the FRIDAY THE 13TH series of movies would have been wildly different if Jason (would it have been Jasmine instead?) Voorhees had looked like this week’s cosplayer.
Remember to call your mother and tell her how much you love her.
On this day in 1971, Corey Scott Feldman was born and in his 42 years of life Mr. Feldman has contributed many things to society not the least of which is his wonderful music. So join me in wishing a happy birthday to this talented fella by taking a walk down memory lane at the things in his career that really stand out to me.
