Continuing five years after the events that occurred on Friday the 13th, this second installment is significant for introducing audiences to director Steve Miner (House, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later). Miner previously worked with producer/director Sean S. Cunningham on projects such as The Last House on the Left and the original Friday the 13th, before carving out his directional debut with Friday the 13 Part 2. Knowing how the character of Jason Voorhees evolves as the franchise continues, Friday the 13 Part 2 feels like a particularly special entry.
Announced yesterday on Friday the 13th, Waxwork Records proudly presents the Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter original motion picture soundtrack on deluxe double LP. In addition to the release of Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter on vinyl, Waxwork Records presents the re-release of their vinyl soundtrack to the Halloween anthology film Trick ‘r Treat, as a deluxe picture disc set.
“Jason’s back, and this is the one you’ve been screaming for.”
Today, when we refer to modern horror icons we still mention the now decades old Michael Myers from John Carpenter’s Halloween, Freddy Kruger from Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and Jason Voorhees from Sean S. Cunningham’s Friday the 13th. This is testament to their popularity, that has arguably surpassed that of both Universal and Hammer’s horror creations. It is perhaps then surprising to horror newcomers that the character of Jason is notably absent for the majority of the original Friday the 13th.
“They were warned… They are doomed… And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them.”
Fright-Rags have a treat for you… A new collection dedicated to Trick ‘r Treat, and a Friday the 13th Part III t-shirt; available only for 24 hours on Friday the 13th. Also, relive your childhood with three new t-shirts designed by Abrar Ajmal and Coki Greenway, based on three Halloween family favorites: 1993’s Hocus Pocus, 1986’s The Worst Witch (featuring Tim Curry), and ‘The Disney Sunday Movie’ Mr. Boogedy.
“It’s just a bunch of hocus pocus!”
Whereas retro zombie video games were the “Next Big Thing” in their days, this is not the case anymore since more stylistic and graphically-rich games have emerged. As a result, gaming enthusiasts across the globe have been forced to forget blasting through corpses in favor of the most current, action-intense games like like those from the Forza Horizon, Mafia and Gears of War series.
