Greetings! ScoreKeeper here taking a stab at delivering a slice of news impaling Los Angeles area friggatriskaidekaphiles with the machete of merriment. The FRIDAY THE 13TH films are horror royalty. Few characters in cinema are as iconic and as enduring as Jason Voorhees. His legacy spans twelve films, a television series, comic books, web sites, and miscellaneous merchandise as far as the eyes can see.
On Friday, January 13, 2012, the good folks at La-La Land Records will be celebrating the release of their brand new 6-CD box set featuring Harry Manfredini's never-before-officially-released complete scores for FRIDAY THE 13TH PARTS I - VI, with a double-feature 35mm screening of FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980) and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES (1986).
A Q&A panel will follow "Part 1" featuring special guests Harry Manfredini, actress Adrienne King (FRIDAY THE 13TH and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2) and actors Thom Matthews, David Kagen, Darcy DeMoss, Vinnie Guastaferro, and Nancy McLoughlin (all from FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 6) hosted by ShockTillYouDrop.com managing editor Ryan Turek. Who knows who else lurks close by waiting in the wings to make their appearance? More guests will be announced later!
This rare event will take place on Friday, January 13, 2012, at the Historic Vista Theater in Los Angeles (4473 Sunset Dr.) starting at 9:30pm. Tickets are only $15 and available now at www.creaturefeatures.com.
The 6-CD box set featuring Manfredini's scores (limited edition of 1300 units) will be available for $70 (cash only, tax included). The box set will also be available to order online on January 13, 2012 at www.lalalandrecords.com.
On Saturday, January 14th at 2pm, Harry Manfredini will appear at Dark Delicacies in Burbank to sign copies of the new box set. If you'd like to order a copy of the box set signed by Harry Manfredini you can do so at Dark Delicacies (look under Signings/Events). They don't charge any extra for the autograph but you better hurry because they'll cut off orders after a certain amount.
