Part III Behind the Scenes Photos

These are some really cool photos from an unknown publication of Dana Kimmell and Paul Kratka in Friday the 13th Part III. If anyone knows of the publication these came from, post it in the comments.

Motel Hell Filming Location

Motel Hell(o) as seen in the film.
The spanish hacienda at the Sable Ranch
Most of this film was shot at the Sable Movie Ranch in Santa Clarita, California which was very well known to host T.V. shows like MacGyver, The A-Team, and so on. The ranch house at Sable also hosted such horror movies like The Devil's Rejects and even Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (though the ranch house was located at another movie ranch when it was filmed).

The location of the actual Motel Hell(o) was filmed at the spanish hacienda at the movie ranch, which has been used in countless films and T.V. shows in the past. Some parts of the film were also shot in Moorpark, California.

1957 NoBeBoSco Patch

I guess this is something only true Friday the 13th geeks can appreciate. It's a Boy Scouts conference patch for Camp NoBeBoSco, also known as Camp Crystal Lake for 1957. As we all know is that 1957 was the year Jason drown while the camp counselors were off doing the naughty. 

Maybe Mrs. Voorhees had it all wrong and the counselors were actually attending this conference? I guess we will never know the answers to that because all of the witnesses were brutally murdered in 1958!

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.
