Diary of a Horror Nerd: That Time I Met Victor Crowley

Fotor032280121

Conventions give horror fans like myself a chance to meet some of our horror idols. The worst thing that can happen to a fan is meeting their idols and finding out that they are a complete asshole, but Kane Hodder aka Victor Crowley is a 100% genuinely awesome person.

I met him at Scarefest 7 in Lexington Kentucky back in 2013, right after the release of Hatchet III. It is no secret that I am a huge fan of the Hatchet series, so I got the crossed hatchet symbol that commonly accompanies the Hatchet film titles a couple of months before Scarefest. 

Anyone that has ever seen Kane in person knows he’s a really big guy, and myself only being 5’3, I looked like a child next to him. Despite his large appearance, he gives off such a friendly vibe. He is one of the easiest people to talk to. 

Some “celebrities” pretend to be interested in what you have to say and the artwork you show them whether it be on paper or your skin, but when I told Kane about my tattoo, his eyes lit up. He came around the table and wanted to see it right away. When I showed him, he talked about how awesome it is and how much he loves to see pieces of his work immortalized. He asked ME for a picture with it, Kane fucking Hodder wanted a picture with me and my tattoo! I’m not a typical “fangirl”, but that moment was probably the highlight of my horror nerd experiences. I must insert a disclaimer here, Kane does choke, FOR REAL, male or female. He grabbed my hair (the tattoo is on the back of my neck) and yanked me around, but how can you be mad? I got tossed around by Victor Crowley!

After the picture, he spun me around and put me in a choke hold for another picture, again, he asked for another with ME. After the second picture, he put his arm around me and said thank you, he thanked me!? 

My husband and I got married on Friday, June 13, 2008 (Jason Voorhees’ birthday is Friday, June 13). We told him about it and he thought it was awesome. He is so genuine and you can feel the passion he has for his work and the love he has for his fans when he speaks. He doesn’t try to rush you along, he gives his undivided attention to his fans and does not like to be interrupted. A wrestling announcer broke over the PA in quite a loud, obnoxious manner while Kane was talking to a fan. Needless to say, Kane was not very happy about that. He slammed his pen down, came out from behind the table with that “I’m going to rip your head off and shove it up your ass” look in his eyes and demanded to know who was doing it. Yeah, they stopped after that.

If you ever get the opportunity to meet Kane Hodder, seize that opportunity. He is such a great guy and would never stomp on your horror nerd dreams. For those curious, he is $30 for an autograph, but pictures and genuine awesomeness is FREE. 

That was my experience meeting Victor Crowley, and I would not change a second of it for anything. Enough babbling and nerding out from me for now.

Until next time.

Is Jason Voorhees Hitting The Small Screen In A New TV Series?

horror-movie-poster-logo-1980-friday-the-13th

Fans of the Friday the 13th franchise have been asking the question, will Jason make his small screen debut? Well, the answer to that question is yes.

A familiar face to the Friday the 13th franchise will be joining the list of executive producers. The producer of the original 1980 Friday the 13th film, Sean S. Cunningham.

Sean Cunningham

Yes there has already been a Friday the 13th TV series. Paramount ran the series from 1987-1990, but Jason Voorhees had nothing to do with that series. This new series promises to be full of everyone’s favorite slasher. Characters from past roles will be forced to confront the return of the machete wielding, teenage butchering madman. There will also be more secrets revealed about Jason and his family.

Cunningham first hinted at a series last year, but he felt it would be more of a web series. It is still unclear as to whether the new series will be released as a web series or TV series, but fans will get hour long episodes.

Special effects appear to be a top priority for this new series. It has been revealed that Roy Knyrim, known for his work on the Wishmaster films, has been hired as head of special make-up effects.

Original Friday the 13th Series

One of the biggest questions has yet to be answered. Who will dawn the mask? Every Friday the 13th fan has their favorite Jason. My personal favorite is Kane Hodder. There have been no hints dropped about whether or not they are already considering someone or if it will be someone that has already played Jason. Only time will tell.

Adding this to the news of a found footage style film set to hit the big screen in 2015, Jason has his work cut out for him. The next couple of years will be a lot to celebrate if you are a fan of the iconic franchise.

So while browsing the net one day, looking for THE BEST versions of the masks I could find, I came across your typical/popular finds, the ones you see in stores around Halloween, the ones on Amazon and what not. None of which were very appealing when it comes to being  a ‘replica mask’, though some were actually branded “Replica” and looked NOTHING like what you see in the films. I wanted something that was as close to the on-screen appearance of the mask as it could get.

So as my search continued, through Instagram (@crimson_mask_studios) and DSCF9351Facebook, I discovered Crimson Mask Studios, an independent company out of Chicago, IL. run by a Die-Hard Horror Fan by the name of Collin X. As I browsed through pictures of his masks, I was absolutely AMAZED at what I had found. Finally, someone who created these masks with 110% Dedication and detail. Collin works hard day and night to bring the best in not only Jason Masks, but Latex Masks, Props, and more. His work on the Jason Hockey Masks is absolutely amazing. The detail and look of his masks are as close to screen accurate as it gets.

DSCF9352Being a HUGE Fan of Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees, I was looking for a Part 8 – ‘Jason Takes Manhattan Mask‘. I immediately messaged Collin asking about one. He promptly responded to my email and was ready to get to work on my mask ASAP. As he got the process started on creating this mask, he posted pictures of the process, and kept in touch with me as he progressed. As the mask got closer to completion I could not wait for it to arrive. The pictures looked amazing, as if the mask had come straight out of the movie.

When Collin shipped the mask, he provided me with a picture of the box and tracking info. Upon it’s arrival I opened the package, DSCF9355which was very safely protected by plenty of plastic and paper to ensure it would not be damaged during shipment.  As I revealed this awesome piece of work. The mask was more that I imagined, and I was in awe at how detailed and screen accurate it looked. I could not be more satisfied.

DSCF9354This Manhattan Killer Hockey Mask is priced at $95.00 + Shipping, and is worth every bit. You cannot put a price on owning such a iconic piece of this franchise. It is a resin copy, hand painted, made with high quality fiberglass, and comes with leather straps. Pick this mask up, it will not disappoint.

All in all, Crimson Mask Studios does some of the best work you will find. Keep in mind that it is run solely by Collin X and may take a few weeks longer than usual (2-4 Weeks to be exact), he hand crafts each and every mask with the highest quality.  So head on over to Crimson Mask Studios and check out the Horror Masterpieces of Collin X.

WWJD t-shirts have been around for a long while now, and they traditionally have a religious connection. I have seen many WWJD T-Shirt-400x400different variations of this t-shirt. BigtimeTeez has come up with a very cleaver version of this design. The design of the “WWJD” (What Would Jason Do?) t-shirt is small to medium in size, sprawling across the center of the chest. The screen printing is flawless with no cracks or peeling. The design stretches with the t-shirt and does not crease or bunch during wear.

Product Review: Horror Warehouse: Friday the 13th part 3 series 1 Jason Figure (NECA)

Horror Warehouse (NECA) figure

I have received the “Friday the 13th part 3 series 1 Jason figure” from Horror Warehouse for review.  Really good collectible figures are very hard to come by these days.  Most have either unappealing packaging, horrible detail or a combination of the two.

Details:

Weapons include machete, axe, and spear gun. Jason stands approx 7.5″ tall and has over 25 points of articulation.

NECA has always been the go to for horror collectibles, and this Jason figure really shows why.  The attention to detail is phenomenal.  The mask is removable and Jason’s face underneath looks true to the on screen makeup worn by Richard Brooker in 1982.  My experience with other horror figures, especially the bigger bodied guys, I have noticed that the shoulders and chest have been way too square, but in this case, the figure actually has a human shaped body.  All of I compared this figure to a still from part 3, and all of the colors are correct on the mask and the clothing.

The packaging is simple yet eye catching.  It is the standard action figure packaging with a card in the back, behind the figure with a wooded scene in red and black.  On the back of the packaging is a little synopsis of ‘Friday the 13th part III’.  If you are a collector, like me, and you do not take your figures out of the packaging, don’t worry, Jason is not going anywhere.  The figure and all of the weapons are securely held into place by a series of wire ties.

Horror collectibles tend to be a bit on the pricey side, but Horror Warehouse is offering this and the variant version of this figure for £14.99 ($24.63).  This is a great price if you keep in mind that this is a NECA figure and that Richard
