His Name was Jason World Premiere


His Name was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, the highly anticipated, documentary about the horror icon Jason Voorhees, will make its world premiere on Nov. 14 at 11:59 p.m. at The Watching Hour, the program of alternative films featured at the Starz Denver Film Festival (SDFF), which runs Nov. 13-23. Ari Lehman, the first Jason, and other special guests will be in attendance for the screening.

When it comes to a comprehensive body, or perhaps corpse would be more appropriate, of work in the horror genre, there may be none quite like the Friday the 13th series. Hosted by special effects master Tom Savini (Creepshow, Dawn of the Dead), and with more than 80 interviews--including every Jason and the "Final Girls" who survived him--and clips from the films, His Name was Jason examines how the legend of Jason Voorhees has evolved from a ghost story that oversexed camp counselors tell around the bonfire into a full-blown Hollywood institution. The film was directed by Daniel Farrands and produced by Anthony Masi and MasiMedia.

In addition to His Name was Jason The Watching Hour will also be playing plenty of other films including Surveillance, Donkey Punch and Eden Log. If you are interested in checking it out hit up their official website for more info.
