2005 marks the 25th anniversary of the classic horror film that started it all, ÂFriday The 13th". The star of the film, Betsy Palmer, and ÂFriday The 13th Part 2Â's Warrington Gillette, will appear in the new motion picture, ÂPenny DreadfulÂ, currently in production. As coincidence would have it, this reunites the actress that portrayed the camp counselor slasher herself, "Mrs. Voorhees", with her big screen son "Jason".
"Penny Dreadful" is a supernatural thriller that centers on a young upstart couple who inherit a beautiful West Village brownstone in NYC. They soon discover there's more than meets the eye in their new home. Does the house hold a terrible secret? Betsy Palmer plays Trudie Tredwell, a local psychic called in to investigate the strange proceedings.
Betsy Palmer is probably best known for playing Jason Voorhees's murderous mother in the original ÂFriday the 13thÂ, but Ms.Palmer's career as an actress began many years before. She appeared in such classic films as ÂMister RobertsÂ with Henry Fonda and ÂQueen BeeÂ with Joan Crawford. In the 1950s she was America's television sweetheart on ÂThe Today ShowÂ and as a regular panelist on the popular TV gameshow, ÂI've Got a SecretÂ.
Warrington Gillette is considered by horror fans to be the first true ÂJason VoorheesÂ. He plays a pivotal character in ÂPenny DreadfulÂ that may hold the key to the house's secret. Gillette, a tabloid favorite, is back in full force in the horror movie genre this year. He goes into production on his own film ÂBloody SocialÂ that will possibly resurrect the character that made him famous.
ÂPenny DreadfulÂ is written and directed by award winning filmmaker Bryan Norton. Norton, a horror movie aficionado, promises the requisite thrills and chills and has set out to make a film that will be a "valentine" to horror fans everywhere. Filmed in and around New York City, "Penny Dreadful" will be premiering at film festivals this fall.
