It’s been nine years since the last Friday The 13th movie was released and while Paramount remains unable to put together a new theatrical entry of the famed slasher series, fans were treated to a new kind of Jason Voorhees experience in 2017: playing as him (or a slew of campers) in a brand new, officially licensed video game. To celebrate the new year, we’re giving Dead Ringers listeners and readers a chance to live out their Camp Crystal Lake fantasies.
Whether you’re new to the genre or you’ve simply got gaps in your horror film history — as we all do — there’s always going to be the movies that you’re “supposed” to have seen by now. The original Friday The 13th is an essential entry in the canon of slasher films. The Omen is a 70s horror classic with one of the creepiest evil kids to grace the silver screen. And while Creepshow 2 is no Creepshow, anthologies are a genre staple that serve as a sort of cinematic comfort food (plus it was written by the late, great George A. Romero, based upon stories by Stephen King).
To celebrate the new year, we’re giving Dead Ringers listeners and readers a chance to win a copy of these three horror essentials.
