Friday the 13th!
Jenny, from Memoirs of a Scream Queen blog, is hosting a blog festival entitled: "Legacy: His Name Was Jason". Now, I have to confess, I have never seen any of the movies from the Friday the 13th franchise. I suppose I'm just more of a gothic horror girl, and with the exception of A Nightmare on Elm Street, I seem to have missed many of the '80s slasher flicks. However, despite having never seen the films, I'm completely familiar with the imagery of Jason's hockey mask, which is quite a testament to the impact Friday the 13th has had on popular culture.
As I can't really offer anything authoritative on the subject of Jason Voorhees, I thought instead I would share a cool Friday the 13th poster I discovered on Etsy, by Team Welser (pictured above left). I have also included a still from the upcoming stop-motion animated film, ParaNorman (pictured above right), due for release in September. Friday the 13th is parodied in a scene where Neil, Norman's chubby friend, is wearing a hockey mask, which I'd say is pretty strong evidence of Jason's enduring legacy!
