Horror movie characters like Freddy, Jason and the rest have managed to span numerous genres, not just the cinematic universes they were originally born into.
Jason Voorhees for example has his own video game currently in the works, plus old Spectrum and NES games from the 1980s, as well as a board game (called Last Friday) inspired by his murderous antics. And he is not alone.

There have been numerous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games released, and depending on how old you are, you will have your own personal favorite. For me growing up in the 80s, I would always hit the arcades to play on one of the coolest games around, the Turtles arcade game.

Jason Voorhees and the Friday the 13th films are a staple of the horror film genre, and the Halloween season alike.

Jason Voorhees has been on hiatus from murderous rampages since 2009. In that time the next film in the fan favorite slasher series Friday The 13th has been in and out of development. We’ve been promised plenty of windows for the films release in 2015 (first March, then November), but nothing was confirmed…until now (allegedly). It was recently announced that the final date has been slated for the next Friday The 13th – May (Friday the) 13, 2016.

So for you horror hounds, the day has finally come again. The day when we can all get our hockey masks out and chase around the neighbors with our machetes (to be honest I would not recommend this unless you like spending time in jail). Yes, it’s Jason Voorhees day or as it is officially known Friday the 13th. Jason has amazed viewers throughout the years and we at Grizzly Bomb love him to bits (check here for some of Jason funnier moments and here for a look at the man himself) and we are not the only ones. He is loved worldwide because people love to be scared and Jason to give us thrills and so much more. It is not a surprise that artists and crafts people have made their own versions of this supernatural serial killer. Jason Edmiston (who has appeared in numerous Grizzly Bomb articles which you can read here and here) is one of many artists to create Friday the 13th inspired art and this great piece of art shows Jason as an All-American killer.

“Are you ready for Freddy?” It would appear that everyone is. The offspring of a thousand maniacs is still up and about since his debut in 1984. He has had a similar cinematic arc to his old box office rival Jason Voorhees, complete with its highs and lows. He went from been a stone cold psycho killer to a comedian prankster killer in the blink of an eye, and even though we got tired of his antics, we still loved him. He has survived a post modern turn and a revamp and just barely escaped a run in with Jason Voorhees and Ashley Williams. He is a multi layered killer. But what is it about Freddy that we really like and why does he give us the willies so much?
