‘Jason Goes to Hell’ Documentary Teases Details with New Poster Art

Jason Goes to Hell, the ninth film in the Friday the 13th series starring everyone’s favorite slasher behemoth Jason Voorhees, is… well, it is not very good. As a fan of the series, I can admire what they tried to do with that film, while also saying that it is the worst in the series. […]

Friday the 13th: The Game is Getting a Collector’s Edition

It appears Gun Media and IllFonic are saying goodbye to Friday the 13th: The Game in the best way possible with a Collector’s Edition.

Here’s Why Friday the 13th: The Series Deserves Your Respect

With today being Friday the 13th, it would be righteously obvious to do a post around the Friday the 13th film franchise — but this is television, people! However, original film director/producer Sean S. Cunningham‘s Crystal Lake Chronicles and the pilot pitched to The CW don’t appear to be coming back to life any time […]

Sad news for fans of Friday The 13th: The Game, as Gun Media confirmed yesterday they can no longer make content for the game.

Friday the 13th: The Game Players Accessed Jason X’s Skin Early… Again

Jason X is probably one of the biggest abominations to the entire Friday the 13th franchise. How can we make Jason even scarier for modern audiences? Hey, let’s shoot him into space and make him look like the Super Shredder. Because that’s what you did in early ’00s horror: be tacky. Back in February of this […]

Friday The 13th: The Game has Weapon Swapping at a High Level

Hey, kids! Do you enjoy level grinding in video games? I hope so, because that’s the only way to unlock a very special ability in Friday The 13th: The Game and the developers made it that way on purpose. You may recall a while back that Gun Media teased us with the idea of having […]

Castle of Horror: On Friday the 13th Part IV’s Anniversary, We Ask: Was Roger Ebert Right That Slasher Films Are Immoral?

On Friday, April 13, 1984, the world saw the release of a movie Roger Ebert called “an immoral and reprehensible piece of trash” — Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. That’s enough to get us interested in looking once more at this film, which features Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover.

Leaving Friday The 13th: The Game Early Will Now Put You in the Salt Mines

Let it never be said that developers don’t have senses of humor, because a lot of games come up with creative punishments that tickle us. Case in point: the devs for Friday The 13th: The Game have just created a punishment zone for quitters called The Salt Mines. Starting on the next update, whenever you quit […]

Friday The 13th: The Game Adding More Mechanics to Make You Jason

Have you ever had an entire night of playing Friday The 13th: The Game where you’re just a camp counselor and it seems everyone else ends up being Jason the entire session?

Friday The 13th: The Game Adding Color Variants for Jason

For the fashionably conscious players who don’t like running around Friday The 13th: The Game in just your standard pair of blue overalls and jumpsuits, the devs are going to give you some color options for at least one character. After hearing from fans that they don’t like the way the Jason 5 “Roy” variant was dressed, […]

Toy Fair New York: The Loyal Subjects Continue Their Blind Box Dominance

One of my absolute favorite obsessions are opening up The Loyal Subjects blind box figures. Not only do they have some of my favorite properties like Power Rangers, Thundercats, and of course Masters of the Universe, they are expanding into a few other licenses that I deeply care about this year. First, they are doing […]

Toy Fair New York: Kotobukiya Continues to Impress

Kotobukiya is always one of the better booths to visit at any convention or show. Toy Fair New York was no different, as they brought out their new Spider-Man large scale statues, all four of their Defenders ArtFX statues, a number of Star Wars statues and products, and more. DC Comics is always represented and […]

Friday the 13th Shows off its New Single Player Challenges in Latest Video

Gun Media’s Friday the 13th game had a bit of a rough start, but the main criticism focused around the lack of single-player, offline play for those simply looking to hack-and-slash their way through awful teenagers. Gun Media later revealed that a single player mode was in the works as a free DLC, just later on in […]
