To quote the description given at the new listing: “It’s Friday The 13th and Strange Jason is…kinda dead. We use lightning and caffeine to try to jolt him back to life, along with F13-inspired tracks from GENKI GENKI PANIC, THE JASONS, STRVNGERS, THE MONSTER ONES and a brand new song from WEREWOLVES IN SIBERIA. Plus, …

TGIF13 X: Making a Cardboard Hockey Mask

You might have noticed I didn’t title this “TGIF13 X: Make Your Own Cardboard Hockey Mask.” I chose the title I used because the subject of today’s post is not a tutorial. Instead it’s a time lapse video of someone shaping the iconic mask out of cardboard (and packing paper) and painting it. That doesn’t …

TGIF13 IX: Camp Crystal Cake

The Homicidal Homemaker is my kind of online cooking personality. Although there are plenty of cooking shows where they make something spooky in October, her show maintains a horror feel for the whole year. I also love the various little touches she includes, like the creepy props placed around the set. How can you not …

TGIF13 VIII: Jason’s Unofficial Theme

Everyone knows the “ki ki ki, ma ma ma” theme means Jason Voorhees is up to no good. But what you might not realize is how there’s another musical composition associated with Mr. Voorhees called “Evening of Chaos.” There is no evidence to suggest Kevin MacLeod had the Friday the 13th franchise in mind when …

TGIF13 VII: Jason Burgers

Remember the “2 for 1 Burger Sale” scene from Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday with those hockey mask hamburger patties? I tried making one on two separate occasions and my patties always broke apart when I tried flipping them over! Maybe this was why the movie only showed them prior to their being …

TGIF13 VI: The Man Behind The Mask

It just occurred to me that, despite the obvious Friday the 13th connection, I’ve never discussed Alice Cooper’s classic song “He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)” here before. That oversight ends today, thanks to this upload by lairofhorror: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qglpDlSlPzE Now that I think about it, it’s eerily appropriate how I decided to write about …

TGIF13 V: How Old Is Jason Voorhees?

Ages ago on Twitter, I once read a Tweet idly wondering how old is Jason Voorhees is supposed to be. Not how old the character is in terms of his place in pop culture, but literally how old the slasher is in terms of the franchise’s continuity. Anyone who’s seen the fourth film, Friday the …

TGIF13 IV: Jas0wned

Remember the guy responsible for creating the “Marik Plays Bloodines” series? Well, LittleKuriboh has unleashed another horror-related comedy video on his Ninjabridge channel, this time combining a clip from Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan and the “Guile’s theme goes with everything” internet meme: Personally, the end result reminds me of something out …

TGIF13 III: The Beginning

Have you ever wondered why Friday the 13th is supposed to be unlucky? If so, then today is (ironically) your lucky day! Not only does Snopes have an article on the matter, but I found a sample version of Nathaniel Lachenmeyer’s 13: The Story of the World’s Most Popular Superstition.

TGIF13 II: WOOF WOOF WOOF!

Jason Voorhees (presumably Kane Hodder) appears on The Arsenio Hall Show to promote Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. This ranks right up there with Pinhead’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
