While I didn’t laugh out loud at this video from Barely Political, I thought it was funny and definitely a worthwhile curio for fans of Freddy, Jason, Leatherface, Michael Myers and Jigsaw. It totally breaks franchise canon in the first 30 seconds by having Jason talk, but the bickering between the villains does expose some of the strengths and weaknesses of each franchise.

It’s still that time of year when we keep dolling out Halloween Treats and, for whatever reason, I’m really hung up on the “slasher as baby” thing. Earlier in the week I brought you collection of them from one artist and now I’ve culled a bunch of different types of art (illustrations, toys, dolls) from a bunch of disparate places.
We’ve got baby versions of Jason, Freddy, Pinhead, Leatherface and… Jason (there’s a lot of him out there)! Head below for a quick look before moving on with your day! Click to make big!
I’m pretty sure I find Pinhead to be the most disturbing one of all. So lifelike. READ MORE
Earlier today I happened upon the following illustrations by Andreas Werchmeister and I knew I had to share them with you guys. While I always prefer the more threatening, cinematic versions of these iconic characters, sometimes it’s refreshing to see them disarmed and wide-eyed a bit.
Dubbed Freddy Jr, Leatherface Jr and Jason Jr by the artist, these are definitely worth a look. Make ‘em big! READ MORE
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
I never got around to playing the NES game based on the Friday the 13th franchise, mostly because I was one year-old and that sort of game isn’t appropriate for anyone under three. Probably for the best, because I’ve since heard that it’s not all that fun to play. One year-old Adam wouldn’t have approved of those poorly conceived dodge mechanics, I can guarantee you that.
To me, the most controversial thing about it is Jason, who happens to be sporting a purple jumpsuit and neon blue mask. Jason can’t pull off those colors, he’s strictly a brown and grey sort of fellow. I fully support throwing in a muted green here and there to mix things up, but blue and purple? No sir. I’d say this guy is best left in the past, so as to keep that neon vomit away from the general public. It would seem the fine folks at NECA would disagree.
Guaranteed to the the highlight of your day, check out YouTube user CounterClockWise000′s absolutely hysterical Friday the 13th: A New Beginning remix.
The below video takes footage from Danny Steinmann’s insanely under-rated sequel and turns it into an epic tune.
Released in 1985, the film starring Melanie Kinnaman, John Sheperd and Ted White, begins when hile Jason Voorhees lies unconscious, a local man decides to use Jason’s old M.O. and wreaks havoc at a halfway house for troubled teens. READ MORE
Season 6 of “True Blood” is set to premiere on Sunday, June 16 at 9/8c HBO has premiered another one of its annual “waiting sucks” clips showcasing a behind-the-scenes moment from the program. Here, Sookie throws herself in front of a potential wooden bullet from her brother.
The series started in 2008, “In a world where vampires have “come out of the coffin”, Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress, discovers a new world of different creatures when she meets Bill Compton, a vampire.”
Guest stars joining the HBO smash in Season 6 are acting vet Rutger Hauer (as a mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason), “Rubicon’s” Arliss Howard (as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell), “Friday Night Lights” grad Jurnee Smollett-Bell (as do-gooder Nicole), “90210‘s” Amelia Rose Blaire (as Howard’s onscreen daughter), “House‘s” Karolina Wydra (as a badass vamp) and All The Boys Love Mandy Lane‘s Luke Grimes as James, a Jim Morrison style vampire. The lovely Anna Camp also reprises her role as anti-vamp puritan Sarah. READ MORE
Yeah, I know it’s Sunday the 15th. But still! Below you’ll find a sneak peak at the head for NECA’s Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter Voorhees toy. I can only assume it comes with a machete to lay into that gushing wound. In all seriousness, how cool would it be if the figure came with Tommy Jarvis (Corey Feldman), the only person to truly stop Jason before he was resurrected as a zombie in Part 6?
Furthermore, how cool would it be if NECA eventually released a box set containing all 13 Jason’s (including baby Jason and the two incarnations from Jason X)?
In addition, Derek Mears has made two, previously unreleased, images available of him as Jason in Friday The 13th (2009). Unlike some other horror sites/writers – I actually dug the Platinum Dunes F13 remake. It’s one of the top four Friday movies in my book – and it’s the best Dunes movie by a country mile.

We have some pretty big Horror stars gracing us in the comic shops this week. The biggest one I feel is Predator #1, but you might also be interested in Freddy, Jason, Ash Nightmare Warriors #1. Also if you haven’t checked out City of Dust, it’s available in a trade paperback. What are you getting this week?
Over at mania.com right now, they are holding a 13 days of Jason series. Every day a new artist (like Mark Rudolph featured) does their interpretation of Jason plus an interview with the artist. It’s really well done and great to get yourself ready for the new movie later in the month. Check it out here.
