There’s A ‘Friday The 13th’ Tour At The Movie’s Crystal Lake Location

For horror film fans, Halloween is the highlight of the year, an excuse to dress up as your favourite creature, watch a marathon of scary movies and generally prat around in character. It’s a long time between Octobers, however, and if you’re on the lookout for a mid-year fix of fear, then you need look no further than the Friday the 13th Camp at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco.

Tobe Hooper Passed Away And I Am Not OK With It.

Tobe Hooper is gone.

It seems like we are losing our horror greats a lot more lately. Mr. Hooper’s cause of death hasn’t been released at this time, but he was 74 years and old passed away on Saturday in Sherman Oaks, California. So many tributes have poured in for him. I think everyone who was a horror fan was in some way influenced by him. People have been mentioning his big hits, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, both movies I personally loved. But I wanted to mention some of his lesser known work that I really enjoyed and in the first case, scarred me for life.

1. Salem’s Lot

Tobe Hooper directed this 1979 TV version of Stephen King’s book. I watched it while babysitting one night and I was scared to walk the one minute back to my house. And that scene up there? I always close the curtains at night. I can’t keep them open, because that scene is always at the back of my mind.

2. Body Bags

Body Bags is one of my favorite movies. It’s an anthology by John Carpenter, and Tobe directed the segment “The Eye”.

“Eye” is a transplant story, this time featuring Mark Hamill as a baseball player who loses an eye in a car accident and receives a transplant, only to be taken over by the personality of the eye’s previous owner, a murderous killer.

If you haven’t seen this one, watch it now! It’s so much fun for horror fans, so many homages and cameos! If you look closely you’ll see Tobe himself in the morgue.

3. Night Visions

I’ve written about Night Visions on here before and I love that people are still discovering this classic series that was cancelled before it’s time. Tobe Hooper directed Cargo & The Maze. But again I’d suggest watching this whole series if you haven’t.

4. The Funhouse 1981

This one is silly but a lot of fun!

5. Freddy’s Nightmares

I remember staying up late to watch Freddy’s Nightmares because I was OBSESSED with Freddy as a kid, but I’d always regret it because this show scared me SO SO MUCH!

6. Masters of Horror

Of course Tobe did a couple of episodes of Masters of Horror. You’d have no right to call the show that if you didn’t include him. He did two episodes:

The Damned Thing

I know these aren’t exactly hidden gems, but if you’re thinking about Tobe and want to watch something off the beaten path, I hope you’ll check these out.

Rest in peace, Tobe Hooper. We love you.

Adrienne Barbeau and Gina Philips Set To Star In “Jeepers Creepers 3”

Adrienne Barbeau in The Fog

If you were a fan of Jeepers Creepers and the sequel, Jeepers Creepers 2, I have some exciting news to share with you. A third installment is officially on the way and the beautiful and talented Adrienne Barbeau is set to star! Not only that, but Gina Philips is set to reprise her role of Trish from the original. She is returning to the big screen after a five year absence.

The first Jeepers Creepers movie, released in 2001, starred Justin Long and Gina Philips as a brother and sister driving home together when they appear to witness a strange looking man disposing of a body down a long pipe. They do what anyone in a horror movie would do, they stop to investigate, and find themselves being tracked by an unstoppable monster known as The Creeper. This movie is one of my personal favorites, which a unique performance from Eileen Brennan as one of the townspeople, and a scene that still creeps me out to this day.

In 2003, the sequel was released and I and a lot of other people were kind of disappointed. The plot featured a football team driving home after a game. Their bus breaks down and they are attacked by The Creeper. These events take place a few days after the events of the first film.

Even though I wasn’t initially a fan, over the years, I’ve grown to appreciate this movie. I love a movie where people are trapped, it’s something that really plays on my personal fears.

There aren’t many details on the movie just yet, just that it’s filming and is set to be released this year. I’ll be sure to post new detail as they come in.

Best Of The Worst: A Celebration Of The Most Memorable Bad Horror Movies

Loving bad horror movies used to be a niche thing. For years, “cult classics” meant a small group of people rallied behind a movie that most hated. But there’s been a shift with how people view these kind of films. Now, a movie like ‘Sharknado‘ gets massive ratings and has so many people approaching the shlock.

The big blockbuster trend these days is shared universes, as lots of companies are chasing their own version of the success Marvel has had with their Marvel Cinematic Universe. Universal is building the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe, DC has their DC Extended Universe, Disney is expanding the Star Wars franchise beyond the trilogies, and Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are teaming up to mingle the worlds of Godzilla and King Kong (more than fifty years after Toho did it with 1962’s KING KONG VS. GOZILLA).
