Celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Friday the 13th" with this parody of "Stacy's Mom"

The Boston-based metalcore band Ice Nine Kills has always had a penchant for horror-themed songwriting, including a recent single about It. But their latest recording takes a power-pop approach to the topic of bloody murder, somewhat-honoring the late Adam Schlesinger with "Jason's Mom" — all recorded remotely in quarantine, of course, which perhaps an implied redundancy at this point.

Classic horror movies as Disney cartoons

It's only a matter of time before Disney owns every piece of intellectual property on the planet. And when that day comes, we'll likely be treated to adorable reboots of gory, existential classics.

In the meantime, we'll have to settle for Swedish cartoonist Daniel Björk's imagined versions of the inevitable future.

Horror movie monster garden 'gnomes'

Garden gnomes are great but, hey, it's October. Doesn't your yard (garden/stoop/desk) deserve something more seasonally appropriate?

Enter Casper and Sadie Revenant's handmade Garden Nightmares. They're kind of like garden gnomes but much scarier. Each one is inspired by famous horror flicks' bad guys.

They're not-officially-licensed creations so they have names like the "Springwood Terror - Nightmare" (read: "Freddy Krueger") or the "Crystal Lake Slasher" (Friday the 13th's "Jason Voorhees") or the "Texas Chainsaw Butcher" ("Leatherface") and so on.

The Garden Nightmare statues stand a foot tall and cost $55 each. They can be ordered from the RevenantFX website or from their Etsy shop.

Someone put this Jason Voorhees statue under a lake to freak out divers

Friday the 13th's bad guy Jason Voorhees can't die but he can be chained under a lake near Crosby, Minnesota.

Dread Central reports:

Remember the end of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives where Megan and Tommy manage to trap Jason in the bottom of Crystal Lake? Well, it seems that some random person has recreated this scene by planting a Jason statue, complete with mask and machete, 120 feet deep in a Minnesotan lake that is supposedly very popular with divers!... The statue was planted in 2013 and, as such, has gone through some wear and tear over the years.

The man behind the statue, diver Curtis Lahr, captured this footage of his creepy creation in 2014:

He went back at the end of last year and shot this video to show the goalie mask-wearing villian's current condition (now 17% more creepy):

P.S. Fans of the franchise may enjoy this upcoming tour of "Camp Crystal Lake" (which takes place at the actual film location in New Jersey, not where the Jason statue is in Minnesota).

Thanks, John! Read the rest
