Fangoria: Jason II, Behind the Scenes

Fangoria #68
Here are some great shots of Jason from Friday the 13th: Part II that I found in some old Fangoria scans. Some of the shots are well known, in fact they all are being in Fangoria. However, you have got to love these old behind the scenes shots of Steve Dash and Warrington Gillette.

The one I love especially is the one of Jason (Warrington Gillette) crashing through the window at Ginny (Amy Steel). It is a great angle of it and it also proves that Gillette used a pendulum (something he denied) to do this scene. He is clearly on an upward trajectory (hence why his hands are getting farther away from Ginny. Maybe it is not a big deal, but if you were on the old Guts and Gory boards in 2004-6, you'd know why I posted this.

    This was a series of great photos.

    I REALLY didn't like to have to part with my '80s and early first half of the '90s Fangos a few years ago on eBay but at the time I really needed some money for savings & such. I had just finally dropped like five pants sizes & I needed money for newer, nicer department store clothing to celebrate & also to free up space in my then modest starter-home sized home that I shared wit one of my older brothers, Erik.

    I'm glad that you reportedly scanned all of yours as you told me, though--I REALLY loved the rare shots from the first for or so, long before the '06 release Crystal Lake Memories book, now. It was one of the few places to truly get the early Friday franchise images, basically.

    And yeah I stopped reading & collecting Fangoria's around 2003 before too much FVsJ coverage. They just got too pricy at almost $10 bucks for a news stand issue & I didn't wanna renew my then subscription. Go figure. Plus by around 2001 or so the context as well as fan boy & then-current genre scene from all countries cinema had REALLY changed as well, too, and I was really watching & collecting a lot of non-genre specific cinema around that time as well, too.

  5. Yeah, Fango blows now. Even under their attempted efforts of late to revamp the mag back to the aesthetics of its glory years, it just isn't the same. I buy HorrorHound these days and that's it. Even Rue Morgue has gone all hipster shit with much of its content and vibe. Shame, as it was decent for years and stole Fango's thunder before HH even came around. Ah well. We'll always have the back issues that represent the good old days...

    Hey there bloody my good man; I've missed ya on Skype by the way. :)

    And yeah I don't pick up no genre magazine. I only read Rue Morgue around 2000-to-2002 since I was very much so out of the genre more then a little as I said. And yeah I stopped reading that one too. And yea I've only heard mostly high positive for HH. I may check'em out one of these days.

    And yeah lets all say RIP to Fangoria: 1979 - 2000 roughly about. I know that they haven't folded but its roughly when I was just buying the issues out of force of habit. Stay cool my good man! :)

  7. To me, the best looking design for Jason with regard to the sequels! I've never been a fan of how much he seemed to grow in stature between each installment. This seemed just fine to me!
