Carol Locatell, Ethel Hubbard Of Friday The 13th: A New Beginning, Has Passed Away At Age 82

One of our utmost favorite alumni has sadly passed away. Carol Locatell, who played Ethel Hubbard in Friday The 13th: A New Beginning, died recently after a long battle with Cancer. Her portrayal of the infamous mother Hubbard has been endlessly quoted the past several decades and truly brings life to her Friday The 13th film. Ron Sloan, who portrayed her equally eccentric son Junior in A New Beginning broke the news on Facebook late last night.

He shared the following thoughts:

Dearest friends, fans, and Horror family,
With great sadness, it breaks my heart to announce that my Friday the 13th Part 5 Mom, (Ethel Hubbard) Carol Locatell has passed away. She had battled cancer for many years. For the longest time, I thought she kick cancers ass, cause she really was a tough lady. I have shared more laughter with Carol, then you could ever imagine.
Her interaction with her fans truly warmed my heart. Asking every single fan the question “Do you want me to flip you off, or what line would you like as an autographed on your picture?”
She would offer lines like “You big dildo eat your f*cking slop”
“Who the f*ck are you and what the f*ck do you want”
We were not only great friends, but we were family. Those of us who are fortunate enough to be Actors in horror films, knows the meaning of the Horror Family. This is truly a life experience for me and I am so proud to have Carol Locatell share her private life with her husband, Greg, with my wife Lisa.
From laughter to tears, I was truly blessed to work with this wonderful, brilliant, actress / mom.
Her sailor mouth will truly be missed at the next convention.
Please say a prayer for her and her family.
She truly did love her fans, and we truly had so much fun together meeting you.
Please feel free to post your pictures and memories of Carol to celebrate her life.
Many blessings and F*CK CANCER!”

It is sad to see another great person that represented the Friday The 13th franchise leave us, but she left an indelible mark with not only her character in A New Beginning, but with fans around the world as well. She will be missed.
