NECA Reveals Ultimate Final Chapter Jason Action Figure!
Written by Patti Pauley
You know, NECA is going to bankrupt me and turn me into a wandering soul with nothing but a few of their highly sought after collectibles and a bunch of Chiquita bananas.
That’s just fuckin’ great, thanks.
While I work on getting my priorities straight, the rest of you can drool along with me and gaze upon NECA’s all new Jason action figure! Thanks to a tip from iHorror reader Drew Manson, I was directed towards NECA’s Facebook page and behold in all it’s butter-face glory, the ultimate Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter Jason Voorhees figure.
This outstanding 7 inch scale action figure produces elaborate details of everyone’s favorite mama’s boy himself from the universally loved 4th installment in the franchise. Jason comes fully equipped with various killing tools from The Final Chapter, and his iconic hockey mask is removable allowing you to recreate the scene where his head turns into a machete kabob! As an added bonus, the figure comes in deluxe window flap packaging that includes the original poster art from the film!
Per the NECA website.
“We’ve taken our classic Part 4 Jason and given him the “Ultimate” treatment, with deluxe packaging, tooling improvements for production of masks, and a slew of new accessories. Plus, you can recreate his (not quite) fatal wound by sliding his machete into the side of his head.”
“This deluxe 7” scale action figure features over 25 points of articulation and is packed with accessories. It comes with two masks, two interchangeable head sculpts, knife, corkscrew, tombstone, hacksaw, cleaver, machete, and axe.”
This kick-ass collectible will be available from NECA June of 2017. Head on over to their website by clicking here to for a closer look! In the meantime, I’ll be over here doing the Glover dance of glee.

John Wick in Development for a Sequel and a Video Game
John Wick 4 was a complete blast and the ending pointed at the odd fact that John Wick might actually be… dead. I didn’t believe it for a second. Not John Wick. The dude is a tank. Lionsgate has already greenlit development for a John Wick 5.
That isn’t all the studio has in store though. It also appears that we will receive a big triple-A game based on the Baba Yaga.
“What is official is that, as you know, Ballerina is the first spinoff that comes out next year,” President of Lionsgate Joe Drake said, “We’re in development on three others, including and including television series, “The Continental”, will be airing soon. And so, we’re building out the world and when that fifth movie comes, will be organic — will be organically grown out of how we’re starting to tell those stories. But you can rely on a regular cadence of John Wick.”
In addition to those awesome projects, we also have The Continental TV spinoff coming and a whole new Ballerina film based on the assassins introduced in John Wick 3.
The synopsis for John Wick 4 went like this:
With the price on his head ever increasing, legendary hit man John Wick takes his fight against the High Table global as he seeks out the most powerful players in the underworld, from New York to Paris to Japan to Berlin.

Tim Burton Documentary Features Winona Ryder, Johnny Depp, and Other Regulars
Tim Burton will always be a part of horror for us. He has a page indexed here and we love it. From Beetlejuice to Ed Wood the director has broken the mold time and time again. A documentary focused on Burton is headed to Cannes this year and will feature all of the director’s co-conspirators in action.
The four-part documentary features Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Jenna Ortega, composer Danny Elfman, Christopher Walken, Danny DeVito, Mia Wasikowska, and Christoph Waltz. All of these awesome actors to talk about their time with Burton.
“Tim continues to build his aesthetic, the Burton-esque style, derived from a wealth of art, cinematic, and literary genres,” the release says “The documentary explores how Burton brings his vision to life through his own joyous idiosyncrasy and his ability to meld the ominous and the frightful with a sense of whimsy. Tim’s films are just the tip of the iceberg.”
The documentary will take us through Burton’s life and many adored films.
