Behind The Scenes: Rotted Mr. Shepard From Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood

According to Director John Carl Buechler, Producer Barbara Sachs and the MPAA forced him to change his originally intended ending for Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood for which a rotted Mr. Shepard (John Otrin) would emerge from the lake to drag Jason Voorhees to his watery grave. He instead added a more visually appealing version of the character with only bits of mud applied to his body and face. Although footage of the cut scene with the makeup was not seen until recently on the 2004 and 2009 DVD releases, some photos have been circulating around the World Wide Web for a few years now.

Below are some truly awesome behind the scenes pics of Mr. Otrin enduring his makeup sessions as well as hanging out with Jason himself, Kane Hodder.

Some of these images are used for fan signings at conventions so those people that attend such events may have seen these photos before. For everyone else who has not viewed these photos, enjoy and let us know your thoughts on one of the heaviest cut films in the series.
