The first 'Friday the 13th' film was released in 1980 and introduced the world to Jason Voorhees. 'Friday the 13th' spawned nine sequels, a remake, and a crossover film with 'Nightmare on Elm Street' boogeyman Freddy Krueger. 33 years since the release of the horror classic, we take a look back at some of your favorite cast members from the first nine 'Friday the 13th' movies and see where they are now.
Where Are They Now?
Released in 1990, 'Ghost' starred Patrick Swayze as Sam Wheat, a man who dies as a result of a mugging gone awry, but his love for his fiance allows him to remain on Earth as a ghost. With the help of a psychic, Sam tries to avenge his death and reconnect with his fiance to resolve lingering issues before he moves on to the afterlife. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Released in 1993, Disney's horror comedy 'Hocus Pocus' wasn't well-received, though it eventually became a cult Halloween classic. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy play a trio of ancient witch sisters who are accidentally resurrected by a teen boy and his sister. The witches won't rest until they've absorbed the life force of all the town children to keep themselves young forever.
20 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this beloved film and see what they're up to now.
In 1996, Robert Rodriguez teamed up with Quentin Tarantino for the vampire horror flick 'From Dusk till Dawn.' Directed by Rodriguez from a script by Tarantino, the film follows two criminal brothers (George Clooney and Tarantino himself) as they hijack an RV containing a former preacher and his two teenagers and seek refuge in a seedy bar south of the border. But there's a catch: this bar is overrun by ancient vampires. 17 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1976, Brian De Palma's 'Carrie' (based on Stephen King's first novel) followed a young, homely girl named Carrie White who is tormented by her peers for being different and strange. When Carrie discovers she has telekinetic powers, all it takes is one last push over the edge to incite her wrath, and one magical prom evening becomes a blood-soaked hell. It's been 37 years since the release of the film, and with a remake hitting theaters this weekend, we take a look back at the cast of the original movie and see where they are now.
Released in 1992, Francis Ford Coppola's 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' adapted the classic horror novel into an operatic, sexy horror drama, starring Gary Oldman as the titular blood-sucker, and with an ensemble cast including Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. The extravagant film was a box office hit, and further solidified Oldman's status as a chameleon actor, while reassuring audiences that Coppola hadn't quite lost his touch. Now, 21 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1998, director Robert Rodriguez released the high school horror film 'The Faculty.' Written by 'Scream' scribe Kevin Williamson, the film follows a group of mismatched high school students who must overcome their differences and band together when mysterious alien parasites take over the bodies of their peers and teachers. Fifteen years later, we take a look back at the awesome ensemble cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1992, Sam Raimi unleashed the third film in his 'Evil Dead' series. Continuing the campier, slapstick feel of 'Evil Dead 2,' 'Army of Darkness' follows Bruce Campbell's Ash as he's transported back to the middle ages to once again fight the evil dead. 'Army of Darkness' delighted fans, but also left them hungry for more adventures with Ash and his legendary boomstick.
21 years later and with rumors of a sequel on the horizon, we look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Capitalizing on the success of his instant horror classic 'Scream,' screenwriter Kevin Williamson's next film was 'I Know What You Did Last Summer.' Released in 1997 and based on the book of the same name by Lois Duncan, the film follows four friends who are stalked by a psychotic killer one year after they tried to cover up a hit and run accident. The film's cast was a 90s teen dream come true, featuring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and more. 16 years later we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Following the rabid success of '90s horror films like 'Scream' and 'I Know What You Did Last Summer,' 'Urban Legend' followed a similar blueprint: grab an ensemble cast of young stars, lovingly pay homage to conventional horror tropes, and add some big twists and surprises. And then, big profit. The film follows a group of college friends who are being stalked by a psychotic murderer mimicking some of the most famous urban legends, hence the title. Fifteen years later (don't you feel old?), we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
