Friday the 13th Props Cameo

People probably rarely notice small set dressing and props in certain scenes of movies. But us Friday the 13th fans are notorious for knowing these movies frame by frame.

In Friday the 13th: Part III you can see a sign hanging near the clotheslines that says Look Out For The Locomotive when Edna is being watched by Jason.

Notice the Look Out For The Locomotive sign above Edna's head

That same sign is used as a set prop in the 1985 film The Zoo Gang in the scene were the Donnely kids are kicked down the stairs at the Zoo club about 1/4 of the way through.

One other great Friday the 13th-related thing about this movie is that it stars Tiffany Helm of Friday the 13th: Part V and is a must watch.

  3. Heh heh the die hard fanatic of the frnchise and here I am, Aspie with Asperger's, and I always thought that I was he only one that totally noticed & also LOVED shit like this.

    I'm a die hard Part 3-D fanatic and I always loved simple shit such as wondering "Hmm, so who's gonna tae care of the one alive now rabbit & the Goldfish named Lionel after Harold & Edna died?" and the like, ect. ANd yeah that sign always fascintaed me too.

    As for The Zoo Gang: I honestly never heard of it, I thought that Tiffany Helm was nice 'n socky buil in Part V and I also dug her in Reform School Girls tha I own. So I migh have to track down The Zoo Gang now. :) Also I recently got in he Bad News Bears rip-off that is Here Come the Tigers! directed by Cunningham & written by Victor Miller. Meh, it is what it is. I don't mind Cunningham but man oh man WHAT a lazy rip-off of ideas generic film maker he is. *chuckles*

    1. The Zoo Gang is pretty good 80s flick. Jackie Earle Haley is in it too with an amazing mullet.

  4. Heh heh not too long ago I go The Bad News Bears to to Japan. Its really no as good as the first superior two but I still dig it.

    He is a fine actor but holy fuc did he make a sub-terrible modern day remake Freddy, and I don't even really like that franchise to begin with. :( lol

    I'm currently tracing down actors from Parts 2/3-D/IV (The Final Chaper) and getting their work. Check your e-mail as I found A LOT of cool stuff with Camilla & Carey More, the hot English expat living abroad twins from TFC. :D
