A blank-eyed, silent meditation on young love thwarted and re-kindled. Tell Me Something picks up the stylized anthropomorphic characters of Jason's earlier works, as well as the challenge of all-pantomime to weave a yarn of young love thwarted and re-kindled. Switching smoothly between two time periods, alternating moments of tenderness and sadness with slapstick and irony, Tell Me Something is a virtuoso technical achievement as well as a funny and sad tale of romance and treachery.

“Lewis Vendredi made a deal with the devil to sell cursed antiques, but he broke the pact, and it cost him his soul. His niece, Micki, and her
cousin, Ryan, inherited the store, and with it, the curse. Now they
must get everything back—and the real terror begins.”

So opens Friday the 13th: The Series. In 1987, Paramount Studios
found success selling a new Star Trek series into syndication. Eager to
cash in on other studio-owned properties, Paramount asked producer Frank
Mancuso Jr. to develop a series around Friday the 13th (1980), and
the new television series was born. The story lines had nothing to do with
the popular slasher film franchise, which was both a blessing and curse.
The cast and crew were largely young and inexperienced, and they were one
of the first Hollywood productions to shoot entirely in Canada.

In the first-ever examination of the TV series, author Alyse Wax delves
into the series episode-by-episode, with more than sixty exclusive
interviews with the cast, writers, directors, and producers, as well as
nearly fifty never published behind-the-scenes photos from the cast and
crew’s personal collections.

Interviews include series creator Frank Mancuso Jr.; series stars
Louise Robey, John LeMay, and Steve Monarque; notable guest stars including
Elias Zarou, Kate Trotter, Wayne Best, Barclay Hope, Angelo Rizacos, Monika
Schnarre, and Ingrid Veninger; directors and production crew including Jim
Henshaw, Marc Scott Zicree, Tim Bond, William Taub, Francis Delia, Armand
Mastroianni, Rob Hedden, Tom McLoughlin, and Atom Egoyan.

About the author: Alyse Wax has been covering television and the horror
industry for over a decade. She was the Associate Editor of the dearly
departed FEARnet.com, and currently writes for a number of geeky,
freaky places, including ComingSoon.net, Fangoria, ShockTillYouDrop.com, and
Blumhouse.com.



"Mark Steyn is a human sandblaster. This book provides a powerful, abrasive, high-velocity assault on encrusted layers of sugarcoating and whitewash over the threat of Islamic imperialism. Do we in the West have the will to prevail?" - MICHELLE MALKIN, New York Times bestselling author of Unhinged

"Mark Steyn is the funniest writer now living. But don't be distracted by the brilliance of his jokes. They are the neon lights advertising a profound and sad insight: America is almost alone in resisting both the suicide of the West and the suicide bombing of radical Islamism." - JOHN O'SULLIVAN, editor at large, National Review

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.....

Someday soon, you might wake up to the call to prayer from a muezzin. Europeans already are. And liberals will still tell you that "diversity is our strength"--while Talibanic enforcers cruise Greenwich Village burning books and barber shops, the Supreme Court decides sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state," and the Hollywood Left decides to give up on gay rights in favor of the much safer charms of polygamy.

If you think this can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious, provocative, and brilliant Mark Steyn--the most popular conservative columnist in the English-speaking world--shows to devastating effect. The future, as Steyn shows, belongs to the fecund and the confident. And the Islamists are both, while the West is looking ever more like the ruins of a civilization.


But America can survive, prosper, and defend its freedom only if it continues to believe in itself, in the sturdier virtues of self-reliance (not government), in the centrality of family, and in the conviction that our country really is the world's last best hope. Mark Steyn's America Alone is laugh-out-loud funny--but it will also change the way you look at the world.
