More Friday the 13th: Part IV Filming Locations!

You can see the car drive past this building on the corner of Franklin Canyon &
 Lake Drive. The house can be seen through the back window of the car.

I posted before on the Zaca Lake scenes filming location here, which is quite a ways away from the filming area where the driving/road scenes with the teens, and the lake kills were done. This area is in the area which is actually Beverly Hills, though quite a ways from the area commonly shown as Beverly Hills. 

It's a protected area in the Santa Monica Mountains called Franklin Canyon. The lake is actually Upper Franklin Canyon Reservoir, also called Myers Lake.

Young Adrienne King!

Here are a couple adverts from the very early 1960s of a very young and very excited Adrienne King. I find it cute that to this day that she is sporting that same (cute) hair style. I think these adverts are from around 1961. Enjoy.

From Beyond: Footloose & Friday the 13th: Part IV

Paramount's Footloose and Friday the 13th: Part IV advert has Jason killing Kevin Bacon, making him the only person to have been killed by Mrs. Voorhees AND Jason Voorhees, right? Well, maybe not! I do what to know how Footloose gets a PG rating, though. 

It's actually fan art from From Beyond!

Some BTS Amy Steel Photos!

I came across these on Amy Steel's Facebook page, and even though I have seen a couple before, I am sure they have been circulated around on other Friday the 13th-related blogs and such. I still think they are awesome and want to share these awesome shots!

River's Edge (1986) Shooting Locations [UPDATED]

River's Edge is without a doubt one of my top ten favorite movies of all time. I took some time and searched out the areas in Tujunga, California where it was mostly filmed. However, the river scenes were actually shot in Carmichael, California – those are included in the update (scroll to the bottom).

Matt's home on Redmont - still looks pretty similar.

Really Cool Night Of The Living Dead (1990) Photo

William Butler and John Iwanonkiw rehearse a scene in Night of the Living Dead
This photo came from the Facebook page of John Iwanonkiw, and is a behind the scenes shot of he and William Butler rehearsing the scene where Butler's character dies in an explosion.  Iwanonkiw was portraying a zombie in the film, and has become a serious actor and was (and still is) a native resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

First Jason - Jason is Watching (Video)

I will clarify that I am not a fan of Ari's music – not my style – but I will say that I love that Ari has engaged the fans and embraced them (even if it's for profit) completely. Even though he has only a few seconds of infamy, he has become a fan favorite.

With that being said, here's a really cool re-do of the video done my little brother. Check it out.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) Rema... I mean "meta" (LOL)

This movie was bound to have a modernized version made, and probably one of the last good slasher films out there that could handle an update. Years back the Gray brothers of the Guts and Gory fame talked about lensing a remake of this film, and apparently it fell through.
