Horror Icons spotted at the Roulette Table

Horror Icons spotted at the Roulette Table

If there’s one affair your gracious webmaster would have liked to have been, it’s over the Las Vegas “Freddy vs. Jason” event, which previewed and showcased the imminent battle of the titans.Yeah I know, pretty heartbreaking that this film’s atop of my must-see list for the year [name another flick with a trailer just as cool?], but hooray, it sounds like my expectations will deliver.

Coming Soon received a report from one lucky horror fan who attended.

“I just wanted to contact you and say thank you for the passes to the Freddy vs. Jason press conference in Las Vegas this morning. The event was very well put together. It started with some preview clips of the movie, which we were told hadn’t been previously seen. There was a short, perhaps 7 minute long, behind the scenes type short, with scenes from the trailer intercut. We also were treated to a finished version of the cornfield rave scene, which was very cool. The shots of Jason on fire running through the corn were definitely well done. At that time, Michael Buffer was introduced and then he preceded to introduce the combatants. The weigh-in was done, and Jason originally came in at a whopping 320 lbs. However, Buffer took his machete from him and the weight dropped to a more reasonable, still terrifying 275 lbs. Ronnie Yu and the producer of the movie, whose name escapes me, were brought out for the question and answer portion, but no questions were directed to them. The producer did act as Jason’s faux mouthpiece, however. The questions were standard fare, but it was fun to hear Freddy’s quite off the cuff responses. The press conference concluded with a Bally’s sportsbook representative announcing Jason as a 7/5 favorite, over Freddy’s 2/3 odds. Overall, it was very enjoyable, and I got some cool swag. Can’t wait to see the flick July 30th. Thanks again”

Meanwhile, Bloody Disgusting have a few photo’s up from the event here
