Oh where, oh where has my head been? Well, I've had a ton going on in my life, and unfortunately I do not have the time or the drive to run the site anymore. I hate saying this, because the site has been around for almost 20 years, and next week is my 32 birthday. So that shows you what age I started this place at. Heck, Camp Blood means more to me then anyone will ever know. Just writing this makes me feel sick to my stomach. I put my heart and soul into it to have tons stolen and not get credit where credit is due. I and this site have been bullied to hell and back over the years.
Don't get me wrong there were the good points at one time, of meeting and talking to the actors, as well as interviews, and helping supply videos to His Name was Jason and get a final credit there too - thanks Dan! I still remember when Larry Zerner posted on the very old, and long gone guestbook saying he was honored to see such a site. I didn't think it was really him lol! Dick Warlock sending me an email telling me I had the wrong info, and putting me in touch with Tom Morga. Kane Hodder and I emailing each other back in the day too.
I just feel like...what I have here to supply to you fans is done. I don't want to run a blog where I rehash information people already know. My main goal of this site was to bring you cool photos, videos, and provide you a forum to chat about F13th, and make friends. And I've done that.
I would love to keep this site up and running, which I will do, but the main site probably won't be updated anymore, pretty much like it hasn't been for the last few years. From time to time I add photos and videos to the gallery, which I will still do, and news is still posted on the forum. So while THIS area where I am currently writing doesn't seem to be updated, doesn't mean parts of the site aren't being added to. I find NO reason to post "hey I added a video" or "Hi guys, I've added two photos" you can go to the gallery and see when new stuff was added on the main page.
Back in the day I had "sources" who would send me tons of information (Camp Blood was the first site to have the FvsJ shooting script and reviewed it). I also got various press releases, free DVDs, free F13th giveaway items, etc. I'm no longer offered that anymore, and quite frankly I don't know why. I frequently emailed with various actors and actresses over the years too. But I guess I just didn't keep up my relationships with them and let my anxiety get the better of me. And for that, I apologize to you fans of the site and series. I can't fix whats broken if I don't know how.
Honestly, I spent probably a good month straight a few months ago getting this site switched over to a new theme using wordpress, I was excited, asking for people to co-webmaster with me, and nobody wanted to. Then I just gave up and lost where I was and felt I couldn't pick up the pieces again. My heart just wasn't in it. And quite frankly, it hasn't been for some time. People grow up, they move onto other things. Other sites come along and steal your thunder, and you lose touch with contacts that once helped you out. All in all "Shit Happens".
If there is someone out there, that wants to run this site, knows HOW to run this site, and can add things to it, I am all ears.
However, I will continue to retain ownership of the site. I don't think I'd ever give that up, and I will continue to run and frequent the forum and chat room. There are a lot of cool people there, (more registering daily) and I wouldn't dream of removing it or anything like that. Hell, THEY are what keep this place running. They are the awesome people to help donate in rough times to keep this site afloat. Without them (and various information donators) this site wouldn't have lasted all these years.
I will also continue to run and host movie marathons every calendar Friday The 13th (and some that aren't).
In fact, I totally forgot to advertise anywhere but facebook about our JULY 13th Marathon! We are having one next weekend in the chat room on Saturday July 13th at 5PM EST! So please come in the chat room (must be registered on the forum to enter) and hang out with us!

Camp Blood is trying something new. As an incentive for those that make a monetary gift to the site, we will now have monthly prize drawings for those that donate. Just sort of a THANK YOU for all the support.
For details please visit our GIVEAWAY page. Please note that this is different then contests which we will still have, and is different then just a regular donation.
We hope that with this prize drawing we will be able to generate enough money to have bigger and better prizes in the upcoming months.
March 20th, 2013
Sorry about all the confusion with the site yesterday. We didn't meet our donation goal at that time (currently still haven't, waiting for some donations in snail mail) so I was downgrading the site to a new hosting package. The host told me nothing would be deleted, but when I changed something they told me to the whole site screwed up. Everything is fixed now.
The contest is also officially over. The winner has been contacted, and already received the item. A huge thanks to HalloweenCostumes.com for allowing us to have this contest.
As for hosting, domains, and donations. Please consider helping out somehow. If you cannot afford a money donation please consider purchasing merchandise through our Amazon links like the one above, or in our store. We also have various other ads around the site that support the site per click.
Donations can be made via this link: Donate Today!
And don't forget the chat room also now has an official chat time - Every Friday night at 9PM EST. Its always open, but we decided to make an official chat time. So be sure to stop by!
February 13th, 2013
New contest open! Win a Jason costume. Be sure to check out the contest page to enter. Please read the fine print!
Unfortunately its also that time of year when I have to ask you to consider making a donation to the site. Hosting fees are due no later then April 1st and I CANNOT afford it on my own. Hosting fees are $214. If you cannot afford a donation please consider purchasing merchandise through our Amazon links. We also have various other ads around the site that support the site per click.
Donations can be made via this link: Donate Today!
The chat room also now has an official chat time - Every Friday night at 9PM EST. Its always open, but we decided to make an official chat time. So be sure to stop by!

A really quick update. A new version of Camp Blood IS coming soon. I had hoped to have it up last month, but due to various medical issues, and website design issues, I have not been able to finish the upgrade. Had I known this before, I would never have mentioned the update until I was for sure able to put it up.
Because I can't tell what the future holds, I will not post a date of when the new site will be up. All I can tell you is, sometime within the month of August it will be up.
July 13th , 2012
Happy Friday The 13th Campers!
Just a quick update to remind you all about our "regular" Friday The 13th Marathon going on in our chat room TONIGHT! July 13th, 2012.. The first movie begins at 8PM EST. The marathon continues until the last person leaves, and you may watch any version of the films you want.
We normally have a turn out of over 40 different people (not usually at once) over the course of the night. I believe our record is somewhere around 32 people at once. This is our EIGHTH Marathon event since starting them back in 2009. We do them EVERY TIME a the 13th falls on a Friday. We also do spur of the moment movie nights from time to time.
For more details on HOW this event is run, please refer to our Facebook EVENT PAGE, or the following post on the forum: Friday The 13th Marathon.
Feel free to spread the news by using the banner above.
Also...I recently made an announcement on Facebook and the forum. This site will have an all new design, color scheme, and new forum sometime in the next two weeks. Sorry I cannot be more specific with the date. You WILL have to register again for the forum, but if you would like to keep your post count, you will have to read the following post on the FORUM to find out how to do so.
If you would like a preview of the new site/forum. Please join our Facebook page and I will post a preview later tonight.

Friday January 13th, 2012
Happy Friday The 13th!
Quick reminder that we are having a Friday The 13th movie marathon tonight in our chat room. You must be registered for the forum to enter the chat room, its quick, free and easy to sign up. We do this EVERY time there is a Friday The 13th (there are 3 this year) we usually have a big turn out and its a blast.
The marathon begins at 8pm EST SHARP! You must have some way to view the movies on your own. We will be watching them in order starting with the original film. You may watch the regular version or uncut version, its up to you!
Camp Blood will be switching to a blog format soon. I personally don't like blogs as websites, but I will only be using the blog format for news, the rest won't seem like a blog.
If you'd like to help Camp Blood with posting news about the series, or anything else, and would like a job (volunteer) here at Camp Blood please contact me via the contact link to the left.
December 26th , 2011
Hope everyone had a great holiday. If you are wondering about the lack of updates read the previous entry below. Otherwise..got some slight news here...
We will be having another marathon on Jan 13th (8PM EST) in the Camp Blood chat room. You must be registered for the forum to enter the chat room (its all free).
You must also have some way to view the movie as they do not stream on the site as that would be illegal.
These are BIG events for the site and usually draw a big crowd and its a blast.
If you are new to our marathons (we've been having them every Friday the 13th for years) then all you have to do is register, login to chat, pop your DVD in (or whatever source you are using) and wait for the countdown to press play. That way we are all in sync with one another. If you are late you'll have to Fast Forward to catch up.
The marathon continues until the last person leaves. So you never know how far we will make it into the series. In the past people have quit at the 7th film, and others have actually stayed and watched the ENTIRE series!
Please make sure you arrive a few minutes early to queue up the movie. We will be starting at 8PM EST SHARP! We will have 5-10 minute breaks between each film.
Hope to see you there! Oh, and fee free to RSVP via Facebook by visiting this LINK and clicking on one of the buttons at the top. Also feel free to reshare this event on your wall. The more the merrier!
October 5th, 2011
Happy October! A few things to report...
I have a lot of personal family stuff going on right now, and a new puppy, so I don't have a lot of time to maintain 2 forums, and 3 websites on top of regular day to day life.
I think I'll be updating the ENTIRE website again with a new layout. Roughly the same as it is now, just using Wordpress like the Haddonfield site I've recently published, so it will be easier to post news. But due to lack of time I'll be doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff for awhile so you won't notice it so much yet.
Movie nights WILL resume this coming weekend. Check the forum for future schedules and to suggest movies!
Oh, and there is finally a new poll over there on the left & a contest to win the new box set!
August 14th, 2011
Had an awesome turn out for the F13th Movie Marathon last night. Thanks everyone for coming! I hope you all had fun! I wish I had been able to make it to part 7 but I was way too tired, fell asleep! Haha. As always we will be having regular movie nights again weekly in October, so check back then for a schedule.
I want to let everyone know that I'm selling my beloved Friday The 13th novels, lobby cards and Fangoria issues. Currently I only have the first novel up for sale. Starting bid is $50. On Amazon.com I see them for $80-$180 with NO photos. So check out my auction here: Friday The 13th by Simon Hawke. In the upcoming week or so I'll add some more items and I'll post them here as well as on Facebook and the forum.
July 30th, 2011
Saturday August 13th, 2011 join us in the chat room at 7PM EST to start watching Friday The 13th. It will go till the last people leaves usually. We DO NOT stream the movies on the site, youmust find some way to watch them on your own. If you are new to Movie Nights we queue up the movie to the same start point, count down and hit play so we are somewhat in sync with each other.
We usually only do these on the actual Friday The 13th dates. But I was in the mood for a marathon, and lots of people were asking for another. They are usually great turns outs. Hope to see some of you there!
July 27th, 2011
A new box set will be released on October 8th, 2011. Its a box set of only the first 8 films, and they are not in Blu-Ray. They are the Deluxe Editions repackaged with a hockey mask, a bonus pamphlet, and its limited to 50,000 copies. Click the image below for a bigger photo and more details.
July 3rd, 2011
Quick update to say once again sorry for the lack of updates. I don't have too much more to add to the site from my own collection other then more video clips and a few photos and no $ to buy stuff to add. So feel free to support the site by visiting some of the websites advertised with banners, or visiting Amazon.com or Sideshow Collectibles or Allposters.com via our links and purchasing items. A small portion of the $ will go back into the website. And you can always donate via the donate link at the end of this page.
I have been VERY busy with a lot of family stuff going on (one of my sisters has been in the hospital for the last 2+ weeks) and the fact its summer and I'm just generally busier. I hope to finish those HD stills at some point soon, and maybe rescan some existing photos at a higher quality. I'm also working on some behind the scenes upgrades to the photo gallery and other areas that aren't quite as noticeable. I did also FINALLY update the poll to the left.
Anyhow, I hope everyone has a happy and safe Fourth of July! My birthday's in a few days feel free to send me gifts of $ through the donation page. Haha, just kidding! Well you can if you want to ;)
May 13th, 2011
Come Happy Friday The 13th everyone! I updated the GAMES area so they are up. But not all of them ar up. I didn't have the time. For some reason the font won't unbold either, and I was getting quite annoyed by it. HAHA.
Come check out the Chat Room tonight and join the F13th Marathon we have a bunch of people in there!
April 25th, 2011
Come join us in the chat room on May 13th for our usual Friday The 13th Movie Marathon. It starts at 6PM EST in the chat room. You MUST register (for free) on the forum to enter the chat room. For more details please visit the even page on FACEBOOK or visit the post on the FORUM.
April 18th, 2011
I know it doesn't appear as though I've been doing much around here since my last update. But I have been working very hard behind the scenes of the website.
I've had a LOT of issues with the photo gallery lately. And I've come the the conclusion that I probably just need to upgrade it to the newest version out there. Which is a real big pain in my butt. But hopefully I'll be doing that eventually. I'll be doing it offline, so it won't cause you viewers any issues. There are a lot of reasons why I haven't upgraded before now, mainly they don't have a lot of options we currently use. But, I know most of you don't care about these nitty gritty details, so moving on...
The HD 2009 DVD stills are out of order. I'm aware of this. Another weird issue with the photo gallery. Moving 500 photos in sequence when they are all out of sequence is VERY hard to do with this gallery. It involves a LOT of clicking, and it gets tiresome. Thus the span of time its taken me to finish. It doesn't help when you have very active carpal tunnel in the hand you use for everything.
I've recently had to place logos over all the DVD Stills. Sorry folks. People keep stealing them for their sites. I really am flattered by it, and I really don't mind people using them at all, thats what they are there for, but the fact that there is no credit given to this site for them really bugs me. Especially when a lot of people pretend this site doesn't exist due to a VERY OLD feud between another webmaster (now ex-webmaster) and myself. So, now hopefully we'll get new visitors when people steal our stuff! :)
I still have to change the width of the site on each individual page. But right now getting the content up and fixed is more important. I've been sick lately, with much going on in my life, and I try to make updates whenever I can. So please have patience with me, and continue to visit the site & check out the forum, and chat room, you'll have a lot of fun there...I promise :)
February 3rd, 2011
I've been sick the last few days. Hope to have the rest of the stills and stuff up when I feel better. Sorry!
January 27th, 2011
Went ahead and updated some of the photo gallery. Added HD Stills for the first Friday The 13th. More will be added shortly. The width of the gallery is larger then the site. The site will soon follow, its not an error. I just figured I'd kept you all waiting long enough so I went ahead with part of the update. The new images are NOT keyworded yet, so you cannot search through them just yet. But you will be able to by Monday. And hopefully by Monday I'll have the rest of the stills up.
January 24th, 2011
I feel like I'm always apologizing for my lack of updates lol. So, this time...I'm not sorry. No, just kidding =) I've honestly been busy with family stuff. Planned my niece's baby shower and she kept going into premature labor so that was crazy. But then she had the baby and I'm now a great aunt to a really adorable little boy so that’s cool. Now I’m busy with trying to get healthy so I’m feeling great and in the mood to update.
If you are a fan of the page on Facebook (if you aren’t you should be! Click here to check out the page) you may have noticed that I recently posted some updates regarding people stealing stuff from the site. I just want to again say how rude, disrespectful and uncreative this is. I've spent a LOT of money on tracking down a lot of stuff for this website, a lot of money on hardware and software, and then spent a lot of time getting the stuff up on the site. It's really shitty when someone comes along and steals it all for their website getting credit for it (people linking to it saying how cool it is, when its been on this site for years). I get it if your a newbie and don't really realize its all that wrong, but when its long time webmasters I'm just blown away by it, it makes me wonder what other things on their sites they've stolen and taken credit for. It really pisses me off that people get excited to see that stuff on other sites, like its new, when I’ve had it exclusively here for years. Even my own photo has shown up on other websites! Come on people, have more respect. If you like the site, great spread the word about it, link to pages you like, give credit where credit is due, etc etc. Don't outright steal. Its people that that make me want to stop updating the site.
With that being said...if you are a fan on Facebook you'd have also noticed that I posted a message regarding adding HD DVD stills to the website. That will still happen. I'm in the process of uploading them as I write this. But what might be disappointing to you thieves out there (and those legit people who just want to keep the pics or edit them and use them with good intentions)...they are watermarked thanks to the thieves. So, if you really want to steal them you'll have to work for it, and edit 1000+ photos. So hopefully those will be up tonight or tomorrow. They probably will not all be keyworded with character/actor names for a couple days. It takes a long time to do 1000+ photos. That’s why I've mainly been lazy on it.
Oh, in case you didn't notice I also updated the photo/video gallery a week ago with new videos from the AMC Fear Fest back in October 2010. Oh, and today I added a new poll..FINALLY. I also hope to soon have the games area, Behind the Mask area, etc done. And I might be editing the site to make it look a little wider on larger monitors. Cause it just looks silly as it is. Just keep your eye out.
And last but not least, support the site by spreading the word and linking to it on forums and facebook and wherever else you can think of! We’ve been on the internet for 17yrs and I hope to be here for another 17 but I can’t do it without your help. So spread the word, submit cool stuff via the email form and lets keep this site alive!
November 4th , 2010
Added a new area to the video gallery. I was finally able to edit videos again. Its a section for references to Friday The 13th. There are a few new clips in there as well, so enjoy, and more to come. If you have any to suggest or submit, please contact me.
October 27th, 2010
First off, a big thanks to "Crazy Ralph" for sending in some pretty cool photos of screen used items from the series for the photo gallery. Check them out by visiting the photo gallery now!
I've been helping out a friend on making a new Halloween forum and its now part of the whole Shivers of Horror Network I guess you could say. So check out both sites here: Shivers of Horror & Haddonfield
If you love this site, please consider donating. The funds go back into the site to keep it running and you can donate as much or as little as you'd like.
October 18th, 2010
I've been working on a Halloween project with a friend and it needs to be up and going this week so I'll be making an announcement about that soon.
AMC is showing almost all of the Friday The 13th films starting this week. Whenever you see one on TV come to the chat room and chat with other fans watching them! For a full schedule visit AMC's website, or check out our smaller list here.
That reminds me! I updated parts of the site - sort of (yup, I haven't been totally lazy). I made a bunch of new templates for the chat room this past week. But to check them out you need to clear your flash cache. So if you know how to do that great, if you don't, click here for details. I also added forums for each movie so its easier to navigate now. And I updated the poll
September 23rd, 2010
Once again I must apologize for my lack of updates. Please read below for more info on that. Photo/Video Gallery updates to resume shortly.
Movie nights in the chat room are to resume in October! Please check the schedule here for more info. As of right now its double Halloween features every Sunday night at 7PM. But keep an eye on that thread for more info!
As most of you know AMC has FearFest every October where they show a bunch of horror movies. Imagine my surprise when I checked the schedule today and discovered Friday The 13th 1-JGTH will be shown! Tentative plans to meet in the chat room and watch them when they are on. So be sure to drop by and see if anyone is in chat during them. Or post a message on the forum asking others to join you for the film! Here is AMC's October Schedule.
Had some issues with the photo gallery I had to sort out, and that didn't go as planned. Came down with a brutal cold for 2 1/2 weeks and I just wasn't in the mood to update. To be quite honest, I haven't been in the mood to update at all lately. I've been debating on finding someone else to run the site while I remain as the owner. Who knows.
August 27th, 2010 - 11AM EST
Having some issues with the photo/video gallery today. Hopefully it will be fixed shortly.
August 15th, 2010
Thursday updates to the photo gallery will resume. I wasn't able to get as many photos up as I wanted on Friday. Keywording 90+ photos takes awhile.
CampBlood.net was mentioned in a couple articles this past Friday The 13th. I would like to share them with you all here: The Morning Call & NJ.com
People are asking how to register for email, click on SIGN UP under the email login box. Your forum login information is NOT the email login. You must register separately.
August 13th, 2010 - Happy Friday The 13th!
As you'll notice the main page got a little rearranged to make room for the new email login box. Now you can register for your own FREE CampBlood.net email address.
You'll also notice if you check out the photo gallery that a bunch of new photos have been added (click on the last uploaded link to see in order what was added). So far I've only gotten 96 added and arranged with captions. More being added as the day goes on.
I strongly urge all fans of the website to become fans of the site on Facebook, that way you can see when the site has been updated.
Don't forget about the Marathon tonight in the chat room @ 7PM EST!
August 11th, 2010
Coming Friday, August 13th - FREE CampBlood.Net email addresses for everyone, and a bunch of new photos to be added over the course of the next couple days.
Don't forget to join us for the Friday The 13th Marathon of parts 1-4 in the chat room 7PM EST.
August 5th, 2010
Finally got around to putting the Camp Blood store back up. I'll hopefully get around to adding our games and behind the mask areas again. I also have a bunch of photos that I'll be adding this coming week for our usual Friday The 13th update so keep an eye on the photo gallery.
If you don't have plans for Friday Aug. 13th, please join us in the chat room at 7PM EST (you must be registered for the forum to enter the chat room) to watch Friday The 13th 1-4. Remember, the movies DO NOT stream on this website, so you must have some way to view them yourself.
July 31st, 2010 - 1:30PM EST
Forum & Gallery are both up and working now.
July 31st, 2010 - 12PM EST
My host had some scheduled maintenance last night, so the site went down around 3AM EST, however, the forum & image gallery never came back up. There was an error. I'm working with them now to resolve this.
July 22nd, 2010
Those of you geared up for the 30th Anniversary Convention will be VERY disappointed to learn that the date has been pushed back to MAY 13th 2011! Why? To read the full statement visit the official convention page.
So, if you now find yourself without plans for August 13th, please come to the chat room and watch Friday The 13th 1-4 with us. The marathon starts at 7PM EST. For more details on this, please visit the following thread on the forum.
I updated the poll, as I kept forgetting about it. I also have a bunch of photos to add to the gallery and those will be added for our Friday August 13th update.
Last but not least. I'm selling a framed Michael Myers Cross Stitch. Please check it out on Ebay. I designed it based off the cover of Halloween 4 and stitched it myself. The money made from it will go back into the Camp Blood site, and help to pay for some software for it. So please think about bidding on it.
June 22nd, 2010
Added a bunch of new photos to the photo gallery. Images of French and German DVD Covers, Part 5 On Location photos, and a few fan photos. More coming soon.
June 4th, 2010
Not too much to report on here. Summer has begun, and I am just not in the mood to update. Plus, I don't have much to add, so I don't want to add it all at once! If you have anything to contribute, please contact me.
In the meantime, I added a new poll, and I updated the photo gallery with 21 photos of Thom Mathews, Bonnie Hellman, Peter Mark Richman, Steve Susskind, Crispin Glover and Lawrence Monoson. As always click on the "Last Uploads" link in the gallery to view the latest additions.
I'll be adding a new area to the Video/Photo Gallery for references to F13th in other films, shows, etc. I have collected a few videos that just don't fit anywhere else, so I have to make this category.. Plus we had some old files in the "other" category that will fit in there. Since I don't have the video software that I need to do videos, video additions will be minimal. This area will be added sometime soon.
April 21st, 2010
ShockTillYouDrop and BloodyDisgusting are both reporting that Friday The 13th: Part 2 is officially dead, and will NOT be made. Their source? A post on Brad Fuller's official twitter page. BD checked in with Fuller and he said "Right now there is no movement on Friday 13th: Part 2." Hopefully the ball will get rolling...eventually.
April 20th, 2010
I got an interesting email today. It was supposed to be insulting, but I found it rather funny to be quite honest. I wanted to share it with all members of this site. Check it out and respond on the forum if you'd like! Click HERE to read the email.
April 18th, 2010
Was able to extend my free trial to the video software I would like to buy for the site. So I got around to adding the body count videos for Part 4. Check them out in the gallery or by visitng Part 4's body count page. More to be added soon...hopefully!
Please think about donating. The site needs to make $50 by May 1st. You can donate any amount you'd like.
April 9th, 2010
The photo gallery has been updated with new images of the Polystone Jason Statue now out for pre-order. Click banner below for more info. Also added some cast member photos in other roles. Be sure to check the Last Uploads link in the gallery for all new images.
I made a BIG goof the other day. Hosting fees for the site were due April 1st, not August 1st like I thought. I'm very strapped for funds so a very generous member of the forum donated and covered the fees. But now domain name fees are due on May 1st, for a grand total of $84 (for 2yrs). Camp Blood needs your donations to keep our domain names active. You can donate as little or as much as you want. Every little bit helps. I cannot afford this out of pocket. If we don't raise the $ we will lose both www.shiversofhorror.com and www.campblood.net, so please think about donating, even if its only $5.

Wow, been a long time since I've updated. Sorry about that everyone. I'll start updating again this week. Videos are still on hold as I don't have the funds to buy the program. Speaking of which, this site could really use some donations. Payment for hosting and domain names are due next month and I just don't have it out of pocket. You can donate as little or as much as you want via PayPal. So please think about donating.
Some small news from Sideshow Collectibles. A new Jason statue will be released this month. Full details not to be released till April 6th, pre-orders starting April 8th. Check it out below:
Finally got around to updating the poll too. Enjoy!
January 23rd, 2009
Movie Night in the chat room continues on Jan. 31st @ 8PM EST. We will be finishing up the Nightmare/Friday series with Freddy Vs. Jason. Be sure to arrive a few minutes early.
January 20th, 2009
Updated bloopers/mistakes for Friday The 13th Part 1-3, more to come. Also updated the monthly poll.
Video updates to resume when I have enough $ to purchase the program I need. Donations welcome!
January 8th, 2009
Lack of updates due to 3 things. #1 - Had a major computer virus. #2 - The video editing software no longer works on my PC and it will take $75 to buy (which I don't have and won't for months - feel free to donate!) #3 - I have a very hurt wrist that is all bandaged up. As you can imagine its very painful to type so I'm holding off on updates for the time being.
December 29th, 2009
The folks over at Creepy Tees have something special planned for the 30th
Anniversary of Friday the 13th...what exactly is it? You'll have to wait to find out, but
they've posted a teaser over at www.30yearsoffear.com to get things started. Be sure to watch till the end & register for their updates!
Please remember that updates will continue shortly AFTER New Years and we will have MOVIE NIGHT on Sunday Jan. 3rd, 2010, 8PM EST. The movie is Wes Craven's New Nightmare. So make sure you head into the chat room early!
December 23rd, 2009
Website updates have been delayed because of the holiday season. I'll update more after New Years. If you want to help with the site please feel free to contact me and submit anything and everything. Have a happy and safe holiday!
December 10th, 2009
Warner Bros. has removed Friday The 13th 2 from their release calendar, and is now listed as TBA.
Lack of updates due to the holidays and being very busy. Hopefully things will change shortly, if not then after New Years I'll get back into the swing of things. For the time being I'll continue to add YouTube videos to the gallery. I've also added a new poll to the left.
Movie night is still continuing every sunday at 8PM EST. This weekend is Nightmare on Elm Street 5.
November 26th, 2009
Happy Thanksgiving! Quick update here. Posted a new festive Entry page. Those of you who have been fans of the site for years will recognize it from many years ago, we used it with snow as the entry page back then for the holidays. A big thank you to Andrew Saltmarsh for the awesome photo.
Also updated the video gallery (and the body count pages) with a few more death videos. Will get around to adding more this week.
November 22nd, 2009
Added a link to our new Facebook page under the banner above! Please 'Become a fan' if you'd like to keep up to date on when the site is updated.
November 17th, 2009
We have a new YouTube - for advertising purposes only. Only a few videos will be displayed there. Please show your support by subscribing.
MANY video clips have been added to the video gallery. (Like the Mythbusters Jason X Kill) Not all updates to the gallery will be posted here. Sometimes I'm just looking through YouTube and find one and add it.
I am currently working on adding the body count videos again. Be sure to click on 'Last Uploads' on the MAIN page of the gallery that will show you what was last added.
Movie Nights ARE still happening. ANOES #3 will be the movie this Sunday in the chat room 8PM EST.
November 13th, 2009
Happy Friday The 13th. A very late update here. Finished the new video gallery, links have been updated in the Multimedia area. The ONLY videos that are not working on the site are the body count videos, those still point to YouTube. Those will be updated this week.
November 11th, 2009
Its official YouTube has deleted the sites account. I've updated some links to point to the new video gallery. Now you cannot download and save the files, you can only stream them. Perhaps sometime in the future they will be back up for download. I hope to be done the new video gallery in about three or four days max.
Movie Nights are still on. Every Sunday 8PM EST in the chat room. This Sunday is Nightmare On Elm Street 2.
November 8th, 2009
Someone keeps reporting my videos on YouTube (videos that others have had up for years in poorer quality). I know some people have it out for the site, due to rumors that were spread many years ago via another site, as this type of thing has happened many times over the years.
Because they have been reported so many times, its only a matter of time before the account is deleted. So, you can now view DVD quality streaming video in the "Photo Gallery" (the name will be changed once all videos are up) You can still view the other downloadable clips in the multimedia area. Eventually that area will have all YouTube links removed, and be pointing towards the "photo gallery"
I didn't want to do this update now, but upon the reported video I figured I should.
November 6th, 2009
The photo gallery is being updated so that it includes streaming video! It will be a semi slow transfer, so for now I'll be adding fan videos found around YouTube. I will leave the Multimedia section up until the transfer is complete.
If you know of any YouTube videos that should be included in the gallery PLEASE contact me with the link. Have a fan video that you don't want on YouTube but want on this site? Contact me and I'll post it.
Don't forget you can now RATE and Comment on the files found in the Photo/Video Gallery.
November 3rd, 2009 - UPDATED 6:30PM EST
The photo gallery has been updated so you may now rate the images. Members of the forum are now able to comment on each photo as well. In the future members will be able to upload files directly to the gallery.
Added a new contact form. You can now attach files though it. Added a new poll over to the left, and a week or so ago I added an Arcade to the forum. You MUST have 20 posts to play.
We will be starting the Nightmare on Elm Street series for movie night. Movie nights take place every Sunday at 8PM EST in the chat room. For more details please visit the forum.
October 31st, 2009 - Happy Halloween!

Quick update to remind everyone that the MEZCO Jason Remake figure will be out soon, and to order while you still can. Sideshow always sells out fast.
I'm currently working on some small updates. Not sure when they will be up. Working on adding more information to Behind The Scenes and the Bloopers area.
Now that Halloween is getting here, I've been thinking about trying to do a movie night in the chat room like we've done in the past, only advertising it this time. So, keep an eye out for that.
September 1st, 2009
Added three new wallpapers to the Fun Downloads area. They are "up in flames" versions of a few we already had up.
No new YouTube content, as I'm researching a new way to censor some of the nudity that YouTube won't allow. If you have any (free) ideas, please contact me and let me know!
August 30th, 2009 - Updated 8PM EST
The novel section is now up, with selected chapters to read! We've always had these up, they just weren't re-edited for the new design until now. Thanks to everyone who submitted book descriptions!
I've also added Audio Clips for Friday The 13th 2009. Enjoy!
I'm going through some personal stuff at the moment. I'm trying real hard to keep updates coming.
We are ALWAYS in need of new content. So PLEASE contact me and submit new items. You will be given credit. This site would not exist without all the fan support, and fan submitted content.
August 27th, 2009
Camp Blood needs your help! See if you can help by checking out this thread on the forum. I don't want to put up the books & novels area until I have what is needed. Thanks everyone!
August 16th, 2009
A small update. Just a few fixes in the credits & links area. The Novel area will be up again shortly. Waiting for an email back from Ebay to complete some links on those pages. Been working off and on (more off) on the game section. I figure that's the least important part of the site though.
August 3rd, 2009
Please forgive the lack of updates, I'm currently pretty sick, but updates will resume shortly.
July 24th, 2009
SpikeTV is showing Friday The 13th tonight at 9PM EST. Members of the forum are gathering in the chat room to enjoy the movie together. Please join us!
July 18th, 2009
I only just noticed I didn't put keywords up for Friday The 13th Part VII photos, I've since fixed that so they are searchable now. I've also added Friday The 13th Part 4 Death Video Clips to YouTube, and hopefully I will have the game section back up in a few days.
July 6th, 2009
Added more Body Count video clips for Friday The 13th Part 1 & 3. Part 3D has 2D version and 3D version. More death clips coming soon.
It was also brought to my attention that Internet Explorer 8 doesn't work well with the forum, you'll have to turn compatibility on for it to work correctly. Hopefully SMF will come up with a fix for this.
July 1st , 2009
Added some video links in the body count area. Only finished Friday The 13th Part 2 for today. Look for more soon. Be sure to check out the sites MySpace & YouTube pages.
June 24th, 2009
YouTube links are now active. If you come across anything that doesn't work, please contact me and let me know ASAP.
June 24th, 2009
Around the same time last year I promised a huge update. But due to major health and family issues, along with laziness, the update was never completed.
I wanted the update finished back in February 2009 for the release of Friday The 13th (2009) as well as the release of His Name Was Jason (Camp Blood is thanked in the credits - Thanks Dan!) but I discovered that the site didn't look right in Firefox, a browser that I never used until now. When I say it didn't look right, I mean it looked awful. So, I basically had to redo the entire site a 2nd time, learning new things I had never attempted to use before, which took even longer then the original update.
This update is NOT complete. I figured I was taking too long, and I owed it to the fans to put something up. So, you'll notice a few areas are marked as "Coming Soon". Those will be up in the following weeks.
What else is new besides the kickass layout? Almost everything has a little something new.
Bodycounts - All new DVD stills instead of those awful VHS stills I had for the last 14 + years. A few little edits on the text as well. Also added the 2009 reboot page.
Fun Downloads - The Sims 1 & 2 Skins as well as Desktop wallpapers created for this site!
Bloopers - Whole bunch of new bloopers added, as well as some removed, and some updated with explanations...including bloopers for the 2009 reboot.
Video Clips - Updated most of the existing video clips with much better audio/video quality. Also added a whole bunch more. They are available to stream through YouTube, or to download and keep.
On Location - Updated with new facts and photos.
Photo Gallery - A HUGE photo gallery with new DVD Stills that are SAVEABLE. The gallery features 1000s of DVD stills - Including images from the 2009 reboot. There is also an area of collectibles. Of course the photo gallery will always be added to.
The collectible area was something I started over 10yrs ago. I started saving any image I found through sites like Ebay. I stopped collecting those images sometime in 2004-2005, so there aren't many "new" things in there. I'll get around to adding more in future updates.
June 3rd 2008
As most of you know, there are deluxe editions of Friday The 13th Part 4,5, and 6 coming to DVD on June 16th, 2009. I have gotten advance copies to review, and my reviews are linked below.
Friday The 13th IV: The Final Chapter Deluxe Edition Review
Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning Deluxe Edition Review
Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Deluxe Edition Review
Also, my major update I've talked about should be up within the next 10 days or so, keep your eye out for it
