Let’s Watch a Horror Movie…Friday the 13th
This month will be a special horror movie live-tweet event! We will be heading to summer camp and watching THREE movies. All in the Friday the 13th franchise.
Our fabulous fearless leader Jolene hosts a writer/artist showcase where she posts stories and art on her blog. Each year she has a different theme and likes these creations to be a little creepy. I have been honored to be a part of the last three themes: haunted house, harvest festival, and haunted hotel. This year will be my fourth. I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to unite artists, to celebrate everyone’s creative minds. Go see who will be contributing to the fun this month here! Go read the first story here! Second story is up today here!
THIS IS VERY EXCITING!
This year the theme is summer camp, because the scary days of canoeing, campfires, and arts and crafts are the best. The #SummerofScreams! Go check out the hashtag on Twitter. It’s a good time.
To honor this theme, we are live-tweeting the best scary summer camp story ever.
A 1980 horror/slasher film was written by Victor Miller and directed as well as produced by Sean S. Cunningham.
Do I need to say more?
No, I don’t. It’s a classic.
I can’t remember the last time I saw this. I didn’t even own the movies, but don’t worry, I DO NOW!
So join us for the first of the Friday the 13th movies on Tuesday, August 8th at 8 EST! Use #Fridaythe13th and #SummerofScreams and add your comments as you watch WITH YOUR FAVORITE MIDNIGHTERS!
Get ready for screaming and bloody fun.
Welcome to summer camp.
We’ll have SO MUCH FUN!
Stay tuned later this month to watch…
Friday the 13th, part IV: The Final Chapter
Friday the 13th, part VI: Jason Lives
Dates and times TBA!
For the record, if you are watching the original Friday the 13th, it doesn’t feature Jason Voorhees. Jason wasn’t ‘featured’ until Part 2.
Also, while Ari Lehman did play Jason in the 1980 original, that picture is definitely not of Ari Lehman, because in the original, Jason is a kid. That picture looks to be from Part 11, Freddy vs Jason, which means it is actually Ken Kirzinger behind the mask.
Dude. I messed that up. I whipped this post up a little too fast. Thank you for the corrections!
Hopefully that fixed it.
You rock, and I hope that didn’t come across wrong when I commented – this is one of my all time favorite movie series so I tend to get a little particular about it 🙂
No! Thank you! This is a sacred franchise. WE LOVE FANS WHO ARE AS OBSESSED AS WE ARE! Brian would have been a better fit for this post. It was his marvelous idea.
