Rest In Piece, Richard


Something compelled me to look up Richard Brooker today and I noticed that not long ago - April 8 - he passed away. I have to say that it was a sad day for myself, being a huge fan of the Jason Voorhees character that he pretty much invented in Part III.

Brooker was pretty much forced to invent Jason himself, when director Steve Miner told Brooker that Jason had no motivation. 

Here's a really old photo of Brooker and his horse.

Part III (Behind the Scenes)

From: www.facebook.com/CrashCreations
I feel kind of lame horking photos from Crash's Facebook page, but here's another - the last one.  I just had to post this, Part III being my favorite. I do remember in the Part III commentary on the Crystal Lake to Manhattan box set, where Richard Brooker talks about walking out of the cabin during 'action' on a live set, smoking a pipe - and how everyone laughed except for Steve Miner.

This photo has to be the best behind the scenes shot of Part III that I have seen!

Happy Friday the 13th!


Here's a photo that John Robert Dixon posted on his Facebook page, on set, during the filming of Friday the 13th: Part V, A New Beginning. Thanks to John for this one!

Some Part III Behind the Scenes Photos


Some more photos from the collection of Crash. I, of course, am a huge fan of Part III and really dig the above photo of director Steve Miner standing over a seemingly defeated Jason Voorhees.

RIP LEONARD NIMOY!


I am just sending this sad message across this blog because it hits close to Friday the 13th land. We all know that Tom Morga – Jason/Roy from Friday the 13th: Part V – doubled for Leonard as Spock in 1984's Star Trek: Part III, The Search for Spock. Morga also did stunts in several Star Trek movies after that, as well as the TV series The New Generation and Nemesis.

Star Trek fans will miss you, Leonard. LLAP

Rare Photo of Jason II Jerry Wallace


For all those Friday the 13th marks out there. It's a behind the scenes photo of Friday the 13th: Part II's production assistant/Jason Voorhees Jerry Wallace. Wallace was used in the opening kill of Alice, the kills of Vickie and Jeff. I believe that he also killed the cop and did the running clips of that scene.

This is from the collection of Crash.

How 'Bout Some Valentine's Day Lar?


Since it's Valentine's Day, I figured that I would share this photo of Lar Park Lincoln. I do believe that she was one of the better looking females of the post-1985 films and has always been charming and nice to her fans. The Friday the 13th scene has really changed a lot since 2000 or so when I began to seek out autographs from the actors of the franchise. Now it seems that every person willing to be found has been found and most will sign for a fee.

Getting Lar's signature and letter in 2003 was a very happy day for me!

Friday the 13th: Part III Locations; Crystal Lake Cafe & Cop Chase



For your Friday the 13th pleasure, here's another location from Friday the 13th: Part III. This has been on a few blogs, but I think the entire area is really neat. Harold & Edna's store was filmed in the same vicinity as the Green Valley store where Shelly and Vera met the bikers. Even though it's a ways away, it's in the next canyon over.

Shameless Self-Promotion, Sorry.


I rarely self-promote. In fact, this is probably only the second time. Anyways, I have a slew of music and movie-related T-Shirts on eBay including some old DeadPit.Com Horror Talk Radio T-Shirts. Have a gander at my eBay store.

Sleepaway Camp II & III Filming Location: Waco, Georgia

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3O_aYDUF7E

Here are a couple videos from the summer camp where Sleepaway Camps 2 and 3 were filmed, in the town of Waco, Georgia. It's really sad to see how quick after the movies this camp started to go to shit. It's basically nothing but ruins now and slowly falling apart. 

This land is now private property and the owners warn that the land is dangerous.
