Attention, attention all horror convention goers and Friday The 13th fans, Monster Mania in Cherry Hill, NJ has quite the treat for you March 9-11th, 2018. Not one, not two, not three, not four, but five actors who played Jason Voorhees attending the event. Not only will they be there for normal autographs and photo ops, all five Jasons will be doing photo ops in full Jason Voorhees costume.
That’s right all 5 of the living actors who donned the infamous hockey mask (or burlap sack in one case) as Jason Voorhees in the original series will be there.
Steve Dash (Jason in Friday The 13th Part 2)
Ted White (Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter)
C.J. Graham (Friday The 13th Part 6: Jason Lives)
Kane Hodder (Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood, Friday The 13th Part 8, Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, and Jason X)
Ken Kirzinger (Freddy Vs Jason)
In fact there are only 3 Jason’s missing from this list. Richard Brooker who portrayed Jason in Friday The 13th Part III, who passed away in 2013, Ari Lehman who played a young Jason who pulls Alice into the water in the original Friday The 13th, and Tom Morga who played “Jason” in Friday The 13th: A New Beginning (of course we could argue back and forth all day if that would qualify him as a Jason).
Unfortunately, I doubt Kane Hodder will be in his Jason X gear. I know, I’m just as bummed as you are.
Now I don’t want to say this is your one chance to do something, but this truly feels like a 1 time only chance. This has never happened before and probably won’t happen again. Unlike the fictional Jason Voorhees who seems to be invincible, as we have seen with Richard Brooker, the real life actors are not. This is something you are not going to want to miss.
While you’re there too, Monster Mania has one other horror icon as their guest. Monster Mania takes place not too far from a little town in New Jersey named Haddonfield, birthplace for Debra Hill, who obviously used it as a namesake when she co-produced Halloween. While she is no longer with us, Monster Mania will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of Halloween with…
That’s right, 5 Jasons and John Carpenter, under one roof. Add in Sid Haig (also in costume as Captain Spaulding), some of the kids from IT, Sadie Sink from Stranger Things and many more, this is shaping up to be one hell of an event. And we still have two and a half months to go for more guest announcements. Better get your tickets early, they most likely will sell out.
Monster-Mania will be taking place on the weekend of March 9-11, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 2349 W. Marlton Pike, Cherry Hill, New Jersey. For more information about the event and to purchase tickets to the event and photo ops, check out their official website HERE.
