Been lots of Friday the 13th news lately – none of it good – till today. Maybe. Just a few days ago we got the news that the A24 / Peacock backed CRYSTAL LAKE series appeared to be sinking faster than Jason with a weighted chain around his neck. Reports that showrunner Bryan Fuller was taking his hockey mask and going home. The seemingly always-in-limbo franchise seemed to once again be dead in the water (pun intended) but today brings news of JASON UNIVERSE and once again fans everywhere are raising their machetes in jubilant triumph – but, are not quite sure why…..yet. So – here’s what we kn ..read more

For followers of this Scarred for Life column, the go-to decade for many has been the 1980s. Those prime years have haunted many generations.

Finally getting caught up on some of the latest theatrical releases – especially now that a large number of them are clawing their way onto VOD or streaming services. One that I was particularly excited to see was the latest from the Radio Silence team – ABIGAIL. Was actually kind of pissed that my stupid personal schedule didn’t allow me to make it to the theater – but now that I’ve experienced it – kind of glad I didn’t waste the gas. I know – that sounds like I’m about to crap all over this one – but in actuality – I’m just gonna fart on it a little. There is no denying the talent – and dri ..read more

This one will show all the kills through the perspective of the killer – and from wht the trailer shows – it may just pull it off. Have a look. The syno ..read more
