  1. The fun thing about the premise of Pumpkinhead, is that each return of the creature is supposed to be a unique story. A new movie doesn't even technically have to be a remake.
  2. I love this topic! I continued a family tradition of taking the kids to one of the local haunted trails. Because of our family's busy schedule, we didn't get much movie time in, this season, but my daughter and I did get to at least catch most of The Nightmare Before Christmas, on TV. I took my daughter trick or treating with some of our friends. She's getting old enough to where this might be one of her last years to dress up and go beg for candy. This was the first year that I was able to do a little bit of monster makeup for her. When her brothers were of the age to go trick or treating, I had a number of opportunities to do some pretty cool makeup for them, but most years until now my daughter's picks for costumes didn't call for any makeup effects. This is my favorite holiday, but this year has been bittersweet as I recognize that my kids are getting closer and closer to adulthood, and things are naturally changing. I'm certainly excited about whatever the future holds, but I will miss the good times we had when they were younger. Maybe when the kids are out of the house, I'll celebrate Halloween by converting the garage into a little one night only haunted house for trick-or-treaters.
  3. There are no official codes available through official means, therefore this discussion cannot continue on the official forums. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
  4. As stated above, no. You can find more information in the following threads: http://forum.f13game.com/topic/21449-faq-content-legal-status-and-the-future-of-the-game/?tab=comments#comment-331255 and http://forum.f13game.com/topic/20227-questions-about-future-content/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-310197 In the future, please use the search function before creating a brand new thread. Questions you may have are often answered in length somewhere on the forums. Additionally, please read the rules and create an introductory post before participating in the forums.
  5. A few more, since people are paying attention: Prince, "Bat Dance.", Batman Look. There's no avoiding it. You are going to see all sorts of flavors of Joker, this Halloween: from Heath Ledger holdouts to generic comic Jokers to the new movie's Joaquin-Phoenix-as-1981-era-Taxi-Driver-remake-Jokers (with or without the teardrop). Why not remind everyone of a time when Batman was played by a comedic actor, Gotham was a gothic art-deco nightmare, and Joker was a mobster. The Beatles, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer.", Abbey Road In the subtext, you have an observation about how life/death can catch up with you when you aren't expecting it, or whatever. On the surface, though, it's a story of a serial killer prefers to use a hammer. That's pretty damn Halloween, if you ask me. Bonus: the production of the song is a nice time capsule of why The Beatles broke up, to add to the horror.
  6. A community reminder: The Savini Jason player model was an exclusive offering for people who donated money when this game was not yet possible. Those donors helped make this game happen, and were rewarded with something unique. It has been stated multiple times that this content will not be made available again, and that all forum threads around it would be closed and locked. Feel free to discuss other things, we're going to "call it a day" on this one... ... again.
  7. Done. Funny mistake, but probably not good for the discussion. Reminds me of this thread: I found something in Jason's shack that i didnt know about... The title originally said "some thong in Jason's shack", which led to speculation that maybe the thong was another piece of Pamela's clothing Jason kept along with her sweater. (The @NthnButAGoodTime you'll see there was not yet a moderator.)
  8. A few more to get pasted above: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, "Red Right Hand.", Let Love In You could throw a TON of Nick Cave on here, including the entire Murder Ballads album, but I'll restrain myself. It was featured in The X-Files, Scream (with a second version written for Scream 3), and the first Hellboy Metallica, "Of Wolf And Man.", Metallica Gerard McMann, "Cry Little Sister - Theme From 'Lost Boys'.", The Lost Boys Original Motion Picture Soundtrack You could make the case for the Marilyn Manson cover on this one, as well, but it doesn't hit me the same way the original does
  9. I propose that the members of this forum could work together to construct the ultimate never ending Halloween-Month playlist. I intend to add my personal picks here over time and encourage anyone who would like to contribute. My thought is that each entry could be formatted the same (Artist, "Song Title.", Album) with any personal commentary underneath, so that it would be easy to copy and paste into one list for everyone. I plan to curate the list from whatever responses are received and periodically add suggestions to this first post. Assuming this works out, not everything you read below this would be my contribution: Jonathan Coulton, "Creepy Doll.", Thing A Week Four A wonderfully oppressive song about a haunted object Jonathan Coulton, "Re: Your Brains.", Thing A Week Two I work in an office. I love my job. I love the people I work with...but this is absolutely how a zombie apocalypse would unfold here. Alice Cooper, "Feed My Frankenstein.", Hey Stoopid Gleefully gruesome poetry with one of my favorite lyrics: "run my greasy fingers up your greasy spine" "Weird Al" Yankovic, "Nature Trail To Hell.", In 3-D A complete roast of the slasher genre while describing a movie I would absolutely love. Guns N Roses, "Sympathy For The Devil.", Interview With The Vampire (soundtrack) Yes the original by The Rolling Stones is a masterpiece, but for a Halloween playlist, I prefer this interpretation. The instrumentation is more haunting. Marilyn Manson, "This is Halloween.", Nightmare Revisited My daughter despises this cover and begs me to switch to the original. Maybe she's right, but sometimes I just want an over-the-top twist on an old favorite Ramones, "Pet Sematery.", Brain Drain Go nuts, everyone! Format: Artist, "Song Title.", Album Personal commentary (if needed) Running List: Jonathan Coulton, "Creepy Doll.", Thing A Week Four Jonathan Coulton, "Re: Your Brains.", Thing A Week Two Alice Cooper, "Feed My Frankenstein.", Hey Stoopid "Weird Al" Yankovic, "Nature Trail To Hell.", In 3-D Guns N Roses, "Sympathy For The Devil.", Interview With The Vampire (soundtrack) Marilyn Manson, "This is Halloween.", Nightmare Revisited Ramones, "Pet Sematery.", Brain Drain Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, "Red Right Hand.", Let Love In Metallica, "Of Wolf And Man.", Metallica Gerard McMann, "Cry Little Sister - Theme From 'Lost Boys'.", The Lost Boys Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Prince, "Bat Dance.", Batman The Beatles, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer.", Abbey Road
  10. I would love it if you came back a delivered your thoughts on what you ended up watching.
  11. I recently watched and enjoyed Possum. The aesthetics of decay, loneliness, and despair made for a chilling experience. The Last Shift is an interesting take on the haunted house genre. The Voices is horror-adjacent, but a delightful surprise. Bone Tomahawk was unexpectedly brutal. I assumed based on your post you were looking for things off the beaten path.
  12. You may report cheats on www.jasonkillsbugs.com Not on the forums.
  13. Correct, @Fair Play. @McDoodyPants, naming and shaming of other players is not permitted in these forums. Please read the forum rules, and take the time to create an introductory post in the Introduce Yourself section.
  14. Jason: Did you just flawlessly execute a counselor using Jason's bag of tricks the way they were intended and surprised the living nuts right off of the player? Congratulations! You are a cheating cheater who cheated and were clearly being helped by one of the other randos in the lobby. Did you clear the rest lobby only me to spend the last 5 minutes of the match staring at someone dancing in an unreachable area of the map? Congratulations! You couldn't kill them because you suck more than anyone else has ever sucked before or will ever suck again. Counselor: Did you say something to defend yourself to the other player either of those scenarios? Congratulations! In the next round you are guaranteed to screw up something easy that you've done a thousand times before, right as that player's Jason is closing in on you for the first kill. (My Murphy's Law entry is the third one, but we needed the first two for context)
  15. It feels as though companies have forgotten that box art is supposed to entice the viewer to buy or rent the movie, and only remember that they are supposed to provide some kind of visual like some sad giftwrap. So now, they just check off the box. If I may be permitted to conjecture, I believe the death of the video store is responsible for the death of box art. It used to be that if a company was going to convince a rental store to take up limited shelf space with their movie, they were going to have to put some freaking effort into it. Track down any of the old merchant facing promo reels about upcoming releases, and you'll see an actor who played a minor character in the movie (or sometimes the star of the movie) practically begging the store owner to include the movie in their inventory. Elaborate and exciting box art was an extension of that salesmanship. Now that the need to appeal to small business owners is gone, and since big box retailers are just dispassionately flinging new releases at their sheves, the love and care and desperation that fueled intricate box art is lost.
  16. As someone whose love of horror (and movies in general) started in the local video store, it hurts my heart to see the current design approach for physical media. The box art used to grab the viewer and tease us with the adventure, or terror, or hijinks that awaited us on the tape inside. It feels as though the focus today is to paste a recognizable star's face haphazardly within view, and barring a star, some other icon without the kind of artistry and care that made me fall in love with the medium. This makes art me want to watch whatever is on that tape: To this day, I still want to see the movie that this cover is pretending is in the box. This art would've made me miss out on a great movie, because it's bland or nondescript like everything else on the shelf: "A story of two clearly photoshopped men who are either bored by or slightly bemused by some light bondage play with a raccoon, while what proportionately must be a bear cub looks on in confusion." "The guy from all those rom-coms just heard a rumor that will shock Bridget Jones . Does that businessman really moonlight as a lumberjack?" "A serious courtroom drama featuring a team of young lawyers out for justice." "Which one of these guys is going to tell him his makeup looks bad?" "A gang of floating heads solves the mystery of the glowing bowling ball" "Tom Cruise has come from the future to call you a loser... just as soon as he can bring his finger and his thumb the shape of an L to his forehead"
  17. Well done! Everything looks great! I agree with the notes about some finishing touches with the cloth and the chain. that little bit of extra will take it from "crisp new fabric and bright new chains" to "stuff dragged up from the bottom of the lake". Less a costume note and more of a safety note, just from the image it looks like there's still an edge to the machete. Prior to a convention or some sort of public display, it will be a good idea to grind down the edge on the machete. Depending on the venue, you may not be allowed in the door with the edge on it, but might be able to get through if it's ground flat. Great job!
  18. @Strigoi, I have merged a double post of yours. A double post is when you post a second time after a previous post of yours without anyone else having posted in between. If you have more to say after your initial post, simply edit that post to include your additional thoughts.
  19. Phenomenal assembly! Everything looks fantastic! I can't wait to see the full body pic with your chains.
  20. You can report your issue at www.jasonkillsbugs.com Bans aren't vetted out here on the forums.
  21. Internet mob justice is a nasty thing. Allowing naming and shaming invites that kind of behavior. Regardless of your opinion of the perpetrator, this site will not be a party to unbridled and escalated attacks on an individual. Furthermore, if even one innocent person is targeted because someone posted supposed evidence out of context or with a false premise, then it is one too many. This has been addressed multiple times on these forums. As the OP's question was answered, and this is an ancient post that got necro'ed, we'll be locking this up. @modernsavage232, if you plan to continue participating in these forums, please take the time to read the rules, create an introduction post in the proper section, and refrain from attempting to name and shame fellow players here.
  22. Fair enough. I'll say something now. this entire thread was started on the basis of a deep misunderstanding of how legal matters work, where the lawsuit will or won't end up, and whether or not it's appropriate to start a petition against the developer of the game on his forum you are participating. While it was inappropriate for this topic to be derailed, the presence of this topic on this forum was also an appropriate. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
  23. Since we're dreaming, I think it could've added an interesting gameplay element to have an alternate "hunter" character that was less built up than Tommy Jarvis. I'm thinking the trope of the less than effective middle-aged country cops that pop up throughout the series. Maybe give them a six-shooter, instead of a one-shot rifle, but otherwise their starts could be akin to La Chappa.
