Check This Out: Special Delivery from Jason Voorhees!

While I was away at Sundance, my roommate called and told me that a box had showed up that said "open slowly" on it. I wasn't sure what the heck it was, but when I finally got home I found out. Warner Brothers had sent over a special Jason Voorhees mask for the upcoming Friday the 13th, complete with classic sound effects and a postcard for Camp Crystal Lake. I finally get to see the finished film on Friday (how fitting), which makes this quite timely. This should definitely make Friday the 13th fans giddy with excitement, especially when they realize that Jason is back on the big screen in just over two weeks.
I shot a quick video of the whole thing below for everyone's viewing pleasure. I thought it'd be cooler for you to get the full experience of opening the box and hearing the classic Friday the 13th sound effect.
Check out the unboxing video of the Jason mask:
Friday the 13th is directed by ex-music video director Marcus Nispel, of 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Pathfinder previously. The screenplay for this reboot was penned by writing partners Damian Shannon and Mark Swift of Freddy vs Jason previously. Although this Friday the 13th is not a sequel, it is technically the 11th film in the franchise and follows Jason's last appearance in Freddy vs Jason in 2003. Warner Brothers is bringing Friday the 13th to theaters everywhere on Friday, February 13th, 2009.
