The Man in the Lake - F13 Fan Film

friday the 13th,jason

The Man in the Lake is a fan-made film about Crystal Lake & the mysterious Jason.

More info in their own words:

Produced by Southlan-Films
Directed by Ron McLellen
written by Kevin L Powers
After the drowning death of a young man at Camp Crystal Lake, the camp is closed down for good. Police searched for days after the accident but the body of the young man was never rcovered from the lake. Now years later a private investor, Spencer Hartwell, buys the property where the camp once stood with plans of reopening it. He hires a group of young folks to join him at the camp and help him get it ready for the upcoming season. When they arrive at the nearby town of Crystal City they are warned to stay away from the old camp. A local store owner tells them how no one goes there because legend has it that the young boy who drowned all those years back actually survived, and now he haunts the forest surrounding Crystal Lake taking vengence on anyone that somes around. None of them take the stories seriously, and they go on their way. Shortly after arriving one of the guys, exploring the forest, happens upon an old shack. Upon checking it out he discovers that the stories are true, and the Man in the Lake… is real.
And here is the film, in five parts:
So, there you go. A good film, as fan films go. A bit quick or rushed, but that isn't so much bad thing. All in all, I think they did a great job. Love the new take on Crazy Ralph!

Hatchet II Trailer

I liked Hatchet, the horror movie from 2007, but I wouldn't go nuts like the "critics" in the blurbs before this trailer seem to. It was good ol' slasher fun, but "the Holy Grail of slasher films"? I don't think so...

Still, like I said, I enjoyed the first one and I will see this one, too. Never enough slasher films done well!

Tumblr Music Meme

This was cool. I posted it on my Tumblr and figured I would share it here, too:

Put your music player on shuffle. 

The first lines of twenty songs = a poem; the first line of the twenty-first song is the title.


Tall and tan and young and lovely,
When the outside temperature rises,
You must be my lucky star,
I am the biggest hypocrite.

There's a shadow just behind me,
This is the clock up on the wall,
Come on girls - Do you believe in love?
Here we are hanging on strains of greed and blues.

Everybody comes to Hollywood,
I was walking down the street,
Come with me, my love,
My baby makes me proud.

Well it's not working anymore,
They told him Don't you ever come around here,
Something has changed within me,
Well, since my baby left me.

When you're alone and life is making you lonely,
Well, we're movin' on up,
You walked in to the party,
Hello darkness my old friend.
