Tune into Just Talk Radio at 9pm for the guest Warrington Gillette, also known as Jason Voorhees from Friday The 13th Part II.
Tune in and listen to him talk about shooting Friday The 13th Part II, and all of the fun he had on set throughout the 28 day shoot- including how tough all of the stunts were to perform.
I'm excited as hell to hear about his work with Stunt Coordinator Cliff Cudney and his stunt double Steve Dash who took a few falls for him.
Like virtually every horror fan-- and especially us 1980's kids-- this trailer has been THE most anticipaed thing since maybe the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake trailer and I think even more than that. Freddy Krueger seemed to be the one horror villain that everyone was really nervous about being re-created.
I personally think that Jackie Earle Haley will do a good job as Freddy and that according to the trailer he pretty much nailed Freddy. The trailer looked good though- looks like it has that atmosphere that A Nightmare On Elm Street 1 and 2 had, which pretty much all but dissipated after (maybe) Part 3 or 4. The look of Freddy is 50/50-- he now looks like a legitimate burn victim, something he old Freddy did not. Jackie's speech as Freddy was also accurate as a burn victim even though it does sound a lot like he's trying to be Robert Englund too hard.
All in all, I dug the trailer and I have a feeling that this movie is going to make a shit-ton of money.
