The dirsctor you'd like to see lensing a Friday The 13th film?

That's the subject of the new poll- which seems to be a pretty highly debated subject. I think we all have people in mind to do so, on the poll I listed a handful of people who I think could do a good job.

Tom Savini: I doubt that Tom would ever consider it, and has more than expressed his hatred for the "killer Jason" character, but Tom did such a great job with the Night Of The Living Dead remake and seems to know how to create tension and atmosphere.

Hatchet 2 news.

So, Bloody Disgusting announced some casting news regarding Hatchet 2, and a few things sort of struck me odd. Kane Hodder will be back as Victor Crowley as well as a lot of the production team and crew with exception to actress Tamara Feldman, the heroine of Hatchet. My gripe is the fact tha there is a new special make-up effects artist (however he did work on the first Hatchet movie) who vowed to give Victor Crowley a new and improved look.

I'll be the first to admit that Victor Crowley looked like an insane mime inside a bad rubber suit in the first Hatchet movie, but why change hos looks? One of the biggest complaints about the Friday The 13th franchise is the fact that Jason's face changed drastically from movie to movie. Here is a chance for a new franchise with the same film crew to carry on with perfect continuity and now they are going to change the look of the killer? Pretty fucking lame and I hope the change is not that drastic, it could be a bit less "funny" looking. I just could not get behind his old look, however I would vote for continuity over changing that fact.

I just found it quite odd.

The second thing I wanted to complain about was the whole "twice the amount of kills!" Am I alone when I say I'd rather have 8 nicely done, bloody and brutal kills than say 16 kills where some are great, some are lame and some are completely offscreen? When you have so many kills you know that half of them will be generic and completely run of the mill. So, why are people in the need of a high body count when about half of them will completely lack any impact?

Ah well, we'll see how this movie turns out.

Cool Jason Goes To Hell DVD cover.

This caught my eye and I generally do not plug this film much since I really do not like it, but this Australian release by Reel DVD has a pretty cool cover.

New MMFX "Cropsy" bust.

For you fans of the 1981 cult horror classic "The Burning", like me. Again MMFX knocks out another great sculpt and this sculpture of Cropsy is one of the best that I have ever seen.

A look at Josh Stephenson's Part III bloody prototype.

Brazillian Soccer Team Adopts Jason Voorhees As A Mascot!

I saw this on Ari Lehman's Facebook page and thought it was just wicked.

Translated from Portuguese, so it's a bit full of English grammar errors.

The São Paulo does not play in this friday nor commemorates its anniversary, but the date can very be considered the symbol of the team in this Brazilian well. It is friday 13! Date where Jason Voorhees was born, personage of the cinema that never dies. As well as the Tricolor, that already it flirted with the degradation zone and, now, it depends on itself to conquer the national heptacampeonato. It depends on itself and it counts on a twisted one strengthened. Beyond the thousands of be-Paolinos, the proper Jason and its creator dress white, red and black color in the final straight line of the match. THE LANCENET! Victor Miller counted, scriptwriter of “Friday 13” original, of 1980, and Ari Lehman, actor whom, to the 14 years, the first Jason of the History of the cinema interpreted, on the restored fever enters the twisted one of the São Paulo, that the feared personage.

Behind The Scenes Photos Of The Week: Jason X

For those who complain that I never plug the Uber-turd Jason X, here ya go. One of the only bright spots of the entire movie: Andromeda's beautiful Lisa Ryder, her head and her stand-in/double and of course one of herself. This woman can kick your ass.

Screaming Like Banshees! Night Of The Creeps Bluray

I finally received my copy of Night Of The Creeps on Bluray, and man I really gotta say it's more than I ever anticipated. For anyone who grew up in the 1980's and early 1990's you probably agree with me that this movie is a staple of cable TV and a total 1980's creation. I remember watching this on VHS-- and many years later after DVD had already been a handful of years in production-- and hoping to get it on DVD and never being able to find it. Years later, the same-- never a DVD except a Laserdisc transfer on DVDr and really that never pleased me.

So, Ain't It Cool reviewed ANOES...

The review seems to be a bit on the fence and leaning more to the "it's alright for a remake" side of things. I will still maintain the same stance as I have taken from day one and that's the fact that I will go and see this and will keep an open mind. I am a huge fan of ANOES 1-3 and feel that those films are masterpieces compared to the rest of the Nightmare films which quickly plummet into Turdville with each sequel.
