Some very impressive Friday the 13th fan films have been coming out lately, so Paul and Jason (Huls, not Voorhees, thankfully) watched one of them – “Never Hike in the Snow,” from Womp Stomp Films. It’s got returning cast members, impressive kills, and a great looking Jason (just like this podcast)!
You can watch the full movie for free right here on YouTube:
Prepare for a discussion of the ninth Friday the 13th Movie, Jason Goes to Hell, the Final Friday! Oh, hang on, it’s not technically a Friday the 13th movie, but that doesn’t really matter. Join the boys as they talk about the penultimate Jason movie before the crossovers and remakes started. You’ll find out how much body hair is too much for Jason Voorhees, the mood of a tit, and a sneak preview of what awaits us at the 10th Annual 24 Hour B-Movie Marathon. Paul also fucks up the rating scale.
Bounty Hunter the Bounty Hunter checks in with Paul and offers to let him know how to erase his parole violation.
