Disqus for Friday The 13th: The Film Franchise




Huge Gallery Of Never Before Seen Production Photos Of FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)

We have once again received some early Halloween treats in the early days of October 2014. Our website was first contacted a few nights ago by Billy Kirkus, who is currently working on an untitled project that is being kept under wraps for the time being, and is utilizing images from Friday The 13th 1980. There are over 4,000 images from the production of the film being looked through for the project, and Billy was kind enough to send a few of the behind the scenes photos our way this past Wednesday to share with the fans.

Now he has sent even more photos of the production to us and none of these photos have ever been seen before. Below are a number of candid images taken in-between takes at camp No-Be-Bo-Sco in Hardwick, New Jersey (the location used for the infamous Camp Crystal Lake) as well as in the town of Blairstown. We'll point out some information for each image, but highlights for us include finally seeing a photo of Ron Milkie (Officer Dorf) dumping the police motorcycle as he tries to drive away from the camp, seeing Steve Miner at the camp and a funny photo of Sean Cunningham on "Crystal Lake" in a sinking canoe.

Once again, a big thank you goes out to Billy Kirkus for sharing these amazing photos for the fans!
