In this hilarious new RadioShack spot, Friday the 13th franchise’s Jason Voorhees learns about 3-D printing, and creates a replica key to the employee’s house. I guess he should expect a visit and a gashing machete wound?
Earlier today we shared this insane Super Bowl spot that Jason Voorhees, Chucky, Slimer, Teen Wolf, Alf, Hulk Hogan and more raiding a RadioShack. READ MORE
It’s been a long and art-free couple of months, but Modern Art is back, and that’s thanks to the wonderful work of digital artist, Adam Miconi. I never thought I’d look at some of the horror genre’s most infamous killers and call them adorable, but Miconi’s managed to make the likes of Chucky, Leatherface, Jason, Freddy, Ghostface, and Michael all look like they’re the type who can appreciate a good cuddle.
Sure, they’d probably have a newly bloodied knife, chainsaw, or machete under their pillow, but that’s to be expected. Read on for more.
A while back we had Kane Hodder, the man behind Jason Voorhees’ mask in four Friday The 13th films, give us his Top 10 Favorite Songs. Still, I find myself sometimes thinking, “What would Jason have on his iPod?” Lo and behold, a track came to me today that seems like it’d be absolutely perfect for Mr. Voorhees as he terrorizes the counselors at Camp Crystal Lake!
Below is the brand new video for punk rock band TV Freaks‘ “Knife”, which is an ode to the sharp, deadly weapon that is so beloved by the horror genre. The song comes from the band’s sophomore album Two (more information here). READ MORE
Before you get too freaked out, I suspect Jason will be in the film. It’s just that his absence is at the very least a possibility.
A few months back we reported that Paramount is releasing Friday the 13th (2015) on March 13, 2015. We’ve heard a lot about a potential found footage angle (which I oppose) and we know that Platinum Dunes is producing the film for Paramount. READ MORE
When this gorgeous custom controller isn’t stalking unsuspecting counselors at Camp Crystal Lake it’s helping one lucky soul pwn noobs in Killzone: Shadow Fall. It’s also making me extremely jealous, for I would very much like to own one.
In case you can’t tell from the image above, this custom PlayStation 4 controller was inspired by one of our favorite serial killing psychopaths — Jason Voorhees — and specifically that beaten up hockey mask he likes so often likes to wear. No one bugs Jason about wearing the same mask every day, but suddenly it’s weird if I wear the same outfit for a few weeks in a row.
Pictures after the jump!
Tuesday night Bloody Disgusting told you that Jason Voorhees would be returning to theaters on March 13, 2013.
So far there’s no other news available – just speculation and rumor. The only thing that we have confirmed as fact is that Platinum Dunes is still producing for Paramount Pictures.
Dunes, Michael Bay’s company run by Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, produced the modern day 2009 remake that starred Derek Mears as the iconic slasher Jason Voorhees, who tortures a group of teens trespassing on his land.
With Paramount announcing the date alongside the title Friday the 13th (2015), speculation has run rampant that the studio is actually remaking the franchise once again. There is no confirmation of this, but the fact that it wasn’t announced as Friday the 13th Part 2 is definitely eyebrow-raising.
And let’s not forget that the next Friday will in fact be the 13th in the franchise, if you count Freddy vs. Jason.
I expect a celebration. READ MORE
It’s things like this that make me want to be a parent. Imgur/reddit user Prettigirl2203 has a kid named Thor that is a big fan of horror. And for this Christmas, Thor wanted a Jason Voorhees doll. However, Friday The 13th isn’t exactly known for being the best source of material for children’s toys, so it was up to Prettigirl2203 to create something of her own for her special little man. So she decided to tackle one of horror’s most prolific killers and make him cute and cuddly! Below is a gallery of all the steps she took to create this fine doll and it’s 100% awesome!
Also, as a bonus, I’ve included Prettigirl2203′s Slenderman cake that she created for Thor’s birthday that includes all eight pages! READ MORE

You know a soon-to-be-married couple is going to do well when they share similar passions and interests AND they’re willing to show off that connection in an engagement photo shoot. Cute engaged couple Josh and Van had an engagement photo session scheduled with photographer Brandon Gray, who decided to spice up the shoot by setting the location at the worst possible campground known to horror fans: Camp Crystal Lake.
Now, as if you couldn’t guess it, things started off well and nice and then quickly devolved into a full on slaughter fest. Check out the beautiful, deceased couple below! READ MORE
In lieu of the new Friday the 13th box set release, Scott Neumyer caught up with Friday the 13th creator/director Sean Cunningham to talk all things Voorhees.
While there’s not a whole lot of new information, he reiterates a few nuggets about the franchise’s next installment, and urges fans to support both the F13 and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises if they ever want to see Jason bout with Freddy again.
“There will be another Friday the 13th, which will probably get shot in the spring,” he tells Fearnet, reiterating the previously announced news of a sequel landing at Paramount Pictures. “If it all goes as I would like, it would then be released at the beginning of 2015.”
While both of the Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street remakes performed well at the box office, the massive budgets mixed with huge weekend drop-offs have made it difficult for the studios to back sequels. While New Line/Warner Bros. is being a bit more trepidatious, Paramount is fast-tracking the F13 sequel. Point is, the odds of a Freddy vs. Jason sequel are being exponentially slim, unless of course fans start once again supporting these beloved horror icons. READ MORE
You guys know I’m a huge Friday The 13th fan. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t be spending all night tonight hosting a screening of the first four films (tickets here if you’re in LA)! You’ve also probably read my personal F13 Rankings! But now it’s your turn! After all, Friday The 13th is practically a Horror Holiday and it belongs to everyone! Hell they’re all out on Blu-ray for the very first time too with “Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection” (at least it’s the first time for most of them).
Do you like the simplicity and innocence of Friday The 13th? The pastoral beauty of Part 2? Jason finding his mask in Part 3? The Jarvis family, Crispin Glover and overall technical competence of The Final Chapter? How about the sleazy fun of A New Beginning or the legit narrative of Jason Lives? Maybe for some reason you dig The New Blood (it does have the best Zombie Jason design) or are homesick for the dangerous Manhattan of the late 80′s. Maybe you’re a really big “Silver Spoons” fan and watch Jason Goes To Hell every d*amn night. You could also be one of the folks who revel in the twisted futurism of Jason X or dig the NOES structure of Freddy Vs. Jason. You could also be one of the smart folks like me who realize that Friday The 13th (2009) is pretty damn good!
Whatever the case, vote below! And tell us why in the comments! READ MORE
NECA is taking two slasher greats and giving them a new, old school look, reports Figures. Presenting A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger and Friday the 13th‘s Jason Voorhees as 8-inch tall, retro-style poseable dolls with fabric clothing.
Jason is based on his first appearance with the infamous hockey mask in Friday the 13th Part 3. He comes with machete and harpoon gun accessories.
Freddy is based on his appearance in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street movie, and comes with a removable hat and his razor glove. Both come on blister card packaging with removable protective clamshell.
Look for the Freddy and Jason retro-style figures this October priced at a SRP of $24.99 each. READ MORE
It never occurred to me that New Line Cinema had released Freddy vs Jason almost exactly ten years after Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.
On August 13, 1993, New Line said a fake farewell to the Friday the 13th franchise, setting up the eventual Freddy vs. Jason. Adam Marcus directed the ninth film in the franchise, which was penned by Dean Lorey. Speaking of…
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film’s release, Lorey wrote an insanely lengthy blog reminiscing on the making of the film. It is loooonnnnggg, but the Friday the 13th completest is truly going to enjoy the trip back to memory lane, which is haunted by the infamous slasher and his soul jumping. Personally, I haven’t a second to dig through it right now, but have it bookmarked for a fun weekend read. Hopefully you guys find some good dirt worthy of your time lurking within… READ MORE
We all know that Hollywood works slow, but waiting for new Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street sequels is like waiting for rain in a drought: useless and disappointing.
New Line Cinema likes to brag that they’re the house that Freddy [Krueger] built, but just like most people I know, they forget to show any sort of appreciation.
After the 1993 Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday teased a battle between franchise icons Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees (see video below), the studio released Wes Craven’s New Nightmare in 1994 before taking several more years to get Jason X into theaters (barely). And during that time the long-promised Freddy vs. Jason remained in development hell. READ MORE
The kids over at Freddy in Space got creative over the weekend, imagining if NECA continues forth with their 8-bit figures.
This July’s Comic-Con was overshadowed by NECA’s incredible, exclusive 8-bit Jason Voorhees, which came boxed in what looked like the original NES packaging. It’s one of the coolest figures of all-time.
Just last week NECA revealed that this November we’ll be getting an 8-bit Freddy Krueger, based on the 1989 NES A Nightmare on Elm Street game, too.
One of the aforementioned blog’s writers had a little fun with photoshopped and imagined an 8-bit Leatherface from Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as Michael Myers from John Carpenter’s Halloween.
Dig the images below! READ MORE
1428 Films, Panic Productions and Hutson Ranch Media have announced that the release date for Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th has been moved to Friday, September 13th, 2013. The documentary was originally slated for release on August 27th.

Continuity has never been a huge concern in the Friday The 13th franchise, but I don’t hold that up as necessarily being a bad thing. If these films were concerned with logic, they’d be way less fun – so I’m happy they celebrate inconsistency from the ground up!
While many F13 films do attempt to bridge with the past in regard to Jason’s mask (that cleaver mark in the forehead being the most prevalent), others completely disregard what came before. Sometimes his mask is clean, sometimes dirty. Sometimes it’s an entirely different design! And then you have Jason Goes To Hell, what the hell is going on there?! Is his face growing around the mask?
Check out the in-sequence collection below – and see if YOU can spot all the minor differences!!! READ MORE

Even knowing the behind-the-scenes drama, I’m still shaking my head that it has taken Paramount Pictures, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures this long to get a sequel to the 2009 Friday the 13th off the ground.
Now that they’ve kicked at dirt for nearly four years, Warners/New Line have officially wasted their opportunity, giving the rights to franchise character, Jason Voorhees, back to Paramount Pictures for a piece in Christopher Nolan’s latest movie project, Interstellar (full details here).
Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Platinum Dunes would put their producing hats back on for the sequel, one that we really hope takes place in the winter (like originally planned). The question is, when will this happen?
Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller responded to Twitter user @superchecco with the following update: “we are wrapping TMNT and Almanac over the next month. Then we start to work on F13.”
Fuller has been really active on Twitter (@bcfuller), so you can totally hit him up with your hopes and dreams for the franchise. They listen. Until then, tell US what you want from the new Friday the 13th. READ MORE

The documentary, inspired by Peter M. Bracke’s bestselling book of the same name, promises to be the definitive retrospective on the long-running Friday the 13th franchise.

Horror blog Freddy in Space and artist Frank Browning have teamed up to create hilarious and very yummy looking horror-themed popsicles, just in time for summer. Well, in art form anyway. Though I do wish they were real.
Below you’ll find the 2nd set of these delicious looking horror treats the two have concocted. The pair first released a round of the icy treats in early June and due to the popularity decided to go back to the freezer, err drawing board. And I’m thankful they did! To see the first batch, including the amazing Jason Voorhees and Trick ‘R Treat versions visit Freddy In Space’s Facebook Page. READ MORE
EDIT (6/12/13-9:28AM PST) Evan here, going through the tape this morning I found the following, verbatim, quote. “Platinum is still involved. They are still with it.” Just wanted to double-tap on this confirmation.
At the Hatchet 3 premiere, our own Evan Dickson interviewed Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in the 2009 remake) who stated, “I spoke to Brad Fuller and he said that the rights are, as everyone knows, over at Paramount and they’re pushing hard. They’re going we want [a new Friday The 13th movie] as fast as possible.” So now we have confirmation that Platinum Dunes, the production company behind the 2009 remake, is partnering with Paramount for the sequel to Friday The 13th!
Platinum Dunes is Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Michael Bay. They are the studio behind such remakes as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare On Elm St. and many more.
Mears is hopeful to return as Voorhees, “…I know they [Platinum Dunes] like me.” He continues, “…look, even if I’m not a part of the series, as a fan I just want to see more.”
Alright readers, who’s pumped for this news? I know that I loved the 2009 remake because it was absurd amounts of fun! I’m personally really excited to hear this news! READ MORE
