Fan Film Review: Friday the 13th: Extraction

Friday the 13th: Extraction is a neat little fan film released in (what I can tell) 2012 directed by Samuel Farmer of Chance In Hell Productions . The plot centers around a private military defense company who sends a party to Crystal Lake to capture Jason Voorhees in what they believe is to finally put a stop to the killing.

I Have Warned Thee...

Clem David Wiechman (David Wiley), who's known to Friday the 13th fans as the resident prophet of doom Abel in Friday the 13th: Part III had a long career in show business, but is more known as a recording engineer to many stars including Elvis Presley. Here's something I found about him on

Japanese Jason III Revoltech Playset From Kaiyodo

from: cartoonandhorror
Japan always has the best things and this Friday the 13th: Part III Jason Voorhees is evidence. Now long in print and I am a bit behind on posting this, but it's still a good find for those who do not know about this yet. It's easy to find on Amazon for anywhere from $45 to $60.

A Shot of the New Owner of the Jason "Hero" Hockey Mask

Dick Warlock with Dario Latinovic; from
So, by now it's very old news that Dick Warlock sold his beloved hockey mask. And for those Friday the 13th nerds out there-- like me-- who salivated over this mask combo for years, here's a nice shot of Dick passing the reigns over to the new (and obviously proud) owner Dario Latinovic. This is the screen-used hockey mask worn by Jason in Friday the 13th: Part III (at the end), IV and V and used as a template for the masks used in the later films. It's definitely an important one-of-a-kind piece of Friday the 13th memorabilia.

Want Own the Jarvis Home? Got 1.7 Million?


Martin Cummins... You're An Asshole

Martin Cummins (Friday the 13th: Part VIII) gets into an anti-abortion debate with  Karen Cambpell on a Canadian TV show Pilot 1.  The crowd seems to side with Karen, who is pro-choice.

I do think Martin makes some valid points, though.

News Archive: Stuntman Claims Actors Unnecessarily Endangered

Ted White and Judie Aronson
Most Friday the 13th fans are more than aware of the story of how Ted White lashed out against The Final Chapter's director Joseph Zito when he refused to let actress Judie Aronson have a break when filming her death scene where she was submerged in near-freezing water. White claims he threatened to quit the film if he did not allow her to rest and warm up or get a stuntwoman to do the scene. Years later Aronson claimed that she was hypothermic and became ill after the fact and blamed it on Zito.

Warlock Clone Perfection

Since I have more time I have gotten back into blogging and reading blogs. This one came from my visit to the site and I think it's easily in the top 3 replicas I have seen. Obviously there's a few marks that are a little off, but overall it's about 98% exact-- and he may still be accepting commissions on these!

Go check it out.

Jerry Pavlon Now

Here are a couple recent photos of Jerry Pavlon (Friday the 13th: Part V) from his Linked-In page. He's now dealing with education with bi-polar and mood-fragile kids and has an organization in New York. Sounds a lot like where he did time in Friday The 13th: Part V!

Friday the 13th Legend: Part III Alternate Ending

from: Crystal Lake Memories 
The alternate ending to Friday the 13th: Part III seems to be one of the more talked about lost scenes in the franchise. Here are excerpts from the Friday the 13th: Part III novel by Michael Avalone, a book written before the movie was finished based on the original shooting script. They are from Pages 186 - 200, taking up after the scene where Chris puts an axe into Jason's head.

White Hockey Mask included. SPFX Jason Voorhees Part 4 Silicone Mask. This mask is one of rarest silicone mask ever made.

Just like any SPFX mask, this one is ultra realistic, and it is very hard to find any type of a Jason silicone mask as there are not many made. You do not want to miss your chance to own this extremely rare mask!I am also selling a extremely rare SPFX Freddy Silicone Mask, so check that out if you'd like!

Bruce Mahler on Evening at the Improv

from: An Evening at the Improv

Here's a really funny clip of Bruce Mahler (Friday the 13th: Part IV) on the TV show An Evening at the Improv that ran from 1982 to 1996 in a clip called Instruments About the World. I am not sure which season this is from or what year, but it is pretty damn funny. We all know that he slam-dunked the character Axel and he is a pretty damn good comedian and actor from the things I have seen him in.

Steve Miner Visits Vancouver Film School

I am a tad too late on this article, but it is interesting that Steve Miner was actually acknowledging Friday The 13th: Part II (but no mention of Part III). He was talking to the class about making good movies with a limited budget.

Ted White Autograph from 1960!

Obviously getting Ted White's (Friday the 13th: Part IV) signature now is quite easy. But when I first started collecting it took me about 4 years of leads to even find his address to write to him and ask for one. Then it took me 3 or 4 tries to have him respond and when he did in 2003 I was ecstatic  Ted had not yet stepped into the spotlight that he well deserved and was still considered an actor who was distancing himself.

Jason Was My Son...

Connie Hogan and Marilyn Poucher, two people asked to fill in for Mrs. Voorhees in Friday the 13th Parts II and III respectively. Both have had very successful lives outside of the genre.

Juliette Cummins' Message to Psycho Fans!

At nearly 50 years old, Juliette is still beautiful. She's a very kind woman whose a proud owner of a pet wolf! How cool is that? Apparently she still lives in the California area, teaches Spanish at Reedley High School and makes convention appearances from time to time.

Life and Death on the A-List available on DVD

Director and producer Jay Corcoran has made this chilling documentary available on DVD for the first time for $29.99. I have a bad VHS rip to DVDr paying around somewhere and I was told that this has a lot better transfer (nor sure if from 35mm or what) than the rare VHS copies that were being sold for $50+.

Two for Part II

You thought the Part II poster from Turkey was great; there's a better one from Thailand. This one even has Jeff and Sandra getting busy... I am assuming that's who it is. Maybe it is Mark and Vicky!

News Archive: John Sherrod's Death

Ted White and John Sherrod filming 
A lot of times I have seen John Sherrod's death noted as a stunt accident on set. However, I did find out that it was not true. John Sherrod, stuntman and stunt coordinator in Friday The 13th III, IV and V, was killed in an automobile accident.

Steve Susskind in the Roommates

Steve Susskind in Friday the 13th: Part III
Before Steve Susskind (Friday the 13th: Part III) was the easy-to-love nitwit Harold, he was a pop star in the du-wop trio called the Roommates who had hit records with "Please Love Me Forever" (with Cathy Jean) and "The Glory of Love" in 1961.

Roy Figure


Stumbled across this great Roy figure on I really love all the love for A New Beginning! He explains why he made ole Roy:

Sideshow Collectible did a incredible run of horror figures, including almost every Friday The 13th Jason and his mother. But for some reason they didn't complete the line excluding Jason from Part 8 and "Roy" from Part 5. Well I decided to make my own Part 5 Roy "Jason" figure.

Walt Gorney Lives

He left this earth at age 91 in 2004, but he still lives in our hearts as Ole Crazy Ralph (Friday the 13th & Friday the 13th: Part II). Here are some photos from his work in other films; King Kong (1975) and Trading Places (1983).

7" NECA Jason IV Figure

A nice shot of the new 7" NECA Series 2 battle-damaged Jason IV figure set for an early 2013 release.

Surf II starring Jeffrey Rogers

A great find: Jeffrey Rogers (Friday the 13th: Part III) in the surfer comedy horror Surf II: The End of the Trilogy. Funny thing is that it's not a sequel to any other movie. The synopsis sounds delightful with a great soundtrack, though it's pretty dang hard to find. It reminds me of a bad Troma movie.

Kirsten Baker speaks!

The once elusive Kirsten Baker (Friday the 13th: Part II) at one of her convention appearances. I will definitely admit that she is still pretty good looking.

The Journey of the Part III Mask

The first glimpses of Jason's hockey mask
Friday The 13th parts II - V may not be perfect continuity-wise, but I think they have the best continuity flow movie-to-movie of the entire franchise. Parts II - IV tell a story over an extended weekend of the rampage of the serial killer Jason Voorhees from start until he is finally killed at the end of Part IV. I still say that the franchise would have ad a lot more credibility if it ended with The Final Chapter or even A New Beginning. Regardless of the (near) fatal blows Jason took through parts II - IV (i.e. a machete severing his sub-clavian artery in II, a hanging in III, etc) -which all can be contributed to logic errors- these entries can be realistically easily be set in reality about a real-live killer. If Jason was once and for all defeated at the end of Part IV, I think critics would have given the franchise a bit more credit than they do now.

Who is Warrington Gillette?

Warrington Gillete
Of course most of us Friday The 13th fans know him as an actor who played Jason in the infamous window crash scene in Friday The 13th Part II. Unfortunately for people none the wiser may call him Jason II, and rightfully so- he was indeed credited as Jason Voorhees, right? It's a very common misconception since day one and for the people who frequented the Guts & Gory forum a handful of years back sort of know where I am going with this. Around 2003, at the height of the Friday The 13th website craze a lot of actors from the franchise came out to do interviews, attend conventions and meet fans. Around 2003/2004 Warrington Gillette was asked to do some conventions and he kindly obliged. He attended a lot of conventions and even had his own forum at Guts & Gory as well as his own website

RIP Danny Steinmann

photo from:

Looks like the rumors of Danny Steinmann's passing are true. I wanted to wait until I mentioned it, but it seems that the sad news is true. His installment in the Friday the 13th franchise seems to be one of the most hated, yet I will always think it is easily one of the best.

Debi-Sue Voohees Article

A semi-recent story about our beloved Tina from A New Beginning, also known as Deborah Voorhees from the VIVAcini August 24th edition called "Getting It Off Her Chest." You can read the entire article here at It mentions her role in Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning.


A nice headshot of the sassy Anne "Annie" Gaybis, who's known to Friday the 13th fans as the lippy cashier at the general store in Part III. Gaybis is actually more known for being a singer and dancer and is still quite the looker today.

Back when I collected autographs from the cast I was in search of Jennifer Banko and never had any luck. I found about 4 or 5 Jennifer Bankos and all were not the correct one. I loved her in Texas Chainsaw Massacre III more than anything. This is a good find, though it was for sale on eBay for $30.

Here's a great collection of (some) production photos from Friday the 13th: Part II and III on eBay. I won't say these are rare, but this one of Traci Savage is one I have never seen. The seller has a lot of other photos and there's a few here and there that are worth having.

What the fuck is this Mezco 10" Jason figuring supposed to be-- looks like Abe Vigoda.

For now, here are some photos of the Part III shooting location at the grocery store where Shelly and Vera meet the motorcycle gang! This is on Spunky Canyon Road past the Newhall area past Santa Clarita.

Friday The 13th: Behind the Scenes of Jeannine Taylor

Jeannine Taylor posing with her stunt dummy
Here we have behind the scene photos of Jeannine Taylor in Friday The 13th 1980. Most of these were for the gore shots cut out of the theatrical print of the movie and only scene in Europe until earlier this year when it was released uncut by Paramount Pictures.
