Interview 13 – Friday the 13th

For this Friday the 13th of 2018 I asked my writing partner Brantley J Brown to help me come up with some questions to ask the team of the largest horror franchise of all time: Friday the 13th. We came up with 5 questions. Why do you think the Friday the 13th franchise became so iconic. What does the character of Jason Voorhees symbolize for you? How would you compare the horror films of the day to those, say, from the 70s & 80s Speaking of Friday the 13th, are you superstitious? What scares you the most? Here are their answers: Victor Miller, writer, the original Friday the 13th Writing, direction, special effects and music——talk about synergy!

When he isn't acting he is doing stand up comedy - and he took a moment away from his routine to stop by and talk with us. 1. Tell me a little about Granison Crawford, the stand-up comedian? I was adopted, or as I like to call it, “chosen” at five years old, and raised with my sister by a single mom in Oakland California. Growing up I was into comic books, soccer, video games, and Dungeons & Dragons. In school I was always the class clown, so I spent most of my time in detention for making the teachers and my classmates laugh. As a comedian I like to break down my...
