    Interview with Larry Zerner

    A familiar face has returned to Crystal Lake: Shelly Finkelstein.

    Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982)

    There's a hockey mask missing down at Camp Crystal Lake, but no one's hitting the ice. Especially not the Halloweenies, who are much too busy living it up over at Higgins Haven.

    Join senior writer Justin Gerber, The A.V. Club's Lara Unnerstall, senior writer Dan Caffrey, and Cinepocalypse's Mike Vanderbilt as they revisit 1982's Friday the 13th Part 3.

    Together, they discuss Jason's new look, the West Coast sheen over Crystal Lake (Pond?), the ills of not wiping, pan-and-scan video, and the return of My Father the Hero director Steve Miner.

    Interview with Tom Savini

    Interview with Tom Savini

    There's a new arrival at Camp Crystal Lake. You know him as the Sultan of Splatter, the Maestro of Makeup, the Godfather of Gore. He’s responsible for some of the greatest effects in the history of Hollywood. He’s turned all of your nightmares into reality. He made a monster out of Jason Voorhees. Campers, please welcome the one and only Tom Savini. In this exciting, new interview, Savini discusses life in quarantine,  the power of dreams, and why we're seeing the Dawn of the Braindead. He also revisits his incredible legacy, particularly his time on these very campgrounds in both 1980's Friday the 13th and 1984's Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. So, gather around the campfire and hear his tales.

    Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)

    Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)

    Camp Crystal Lake is about to see its greatest urban legend come to life -- and the Halloweenies are right in the middle of it. Jason Voorhees has arrived on the campgrounds, and he doesn't play well with bunkmates.

    Join senior writer Justin Gerber, contributing writer McKenzie Gerber, senior writer Dan Caffrey, and pop culture critic Mike Vanderbilt as they evade this new menace and learn that family traditions die hard in 1981's Friday the 13th Part 2.

    Together, they discuss how Jason is at his scariest, the filmmaking motifs (if any) of one Steven Miner, the lack of gore, and arguably the hunkiest character to ever set foot in a cabin in this franchise. That's just the tip of the machete.

    Friday the 13th (1980)

    Friday the 13th (1980)

    The Halloweenies have arrived at Camp Crystal Lake to set up shop. Things are remarkably quiet, though. It's as if something or someone is watching from the woods -- waiting patiently to strike. You know, just like that ol' man warned us of... Join Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, senior writer Justin Gerber, contributing writer McKenzie Gerber, and pop culture critic Mike Vanderbilt as they set up camp, find shelter from the storm, and play a few rounds of strip Monopoly. Together, they discuss how the film shares more qualities of the '70s than the '80s the franchise would define, debate over whether it's scarier without Jason Voorhees, and meditate on a potential revelation about one particular camper.

Great podcast

Whether I agree with their opinions or not this is a deep, well researched podcast and the people involved are easy to listen to and it's very entertaining. One of the best horror podcasts out there.

Highlight of the month

I don’t have to agree with all the opinions expressed to enjoy this. The depth of analysis is enough and hearing some of my favourite films discussed in this level of detail means I’m waiting on the next episode.
