This last October, I was hired by Reaper's Revenge to portray our old buddy Jason Voorhees at their annual haunted hayride.......mainly because of my ze and eagerness, but I suspect a lot of it happened to be that I had my own costume! Anyway, if you've ever worked at a haunted house or hayride you know how busy it can be! I worked out a routine where my actions were gnaled by the muc I had set up. I wanted it to be as close to being in the movies as posble. Of course It never occurred to me that I'd be repeating the exact routine every x and a half minutes.......seven hours a day.........for a month!
I felt compelled to spend a day shooting this video of me in action for their promotional efforts. I set up my camera to include several angles. It took most of the night to get the footage. I just wish I could have gotten footage of me on the actual trailer. I charged the de of it as it passed (caung everyone to fly over the the oppote de) then ran around to the back and up the steps. Once up, I would ngle out someone halfway down. While straddling them, I would raise the ax above my head slowly. Right as I start to violently come down on them, I would turn quickly to the group making them jump once again. This is when the theme from Halloween would kick in and I would look towards the upcoming scene and jump off into the darkness.
Why am I sharing this with you guys? Well, because no one else I know cares! I figure you guys will either appreciate it or completely critically tear me apart!!!! Either way, here you go!

That is really good! The only thing I don't like is the clip is so short. I want more! That must have been a real blast scaring the crap out of people and really giving them a good time. Love it!

I wish it was longer too! I tried to get the other shots, but my camera is crap and it was just too dark! Not to mention that we were forbidden to have any form of camera......HA!
