COULD WE HAVE HAD A ‘CHEECH AND CHONG VS. JASON’ MOVIE?





Well this really is ‘far out’, but several websites have just reported on an interview done on Post Mortem with director Tom McLoughlin who directed Friday the 13th: Jason Lives, where McLoughlin mentions how a film where Jason Voorhees meets Cheech and Chong was briefly considered. Said McLoughlin:

“I was asked by producer Frank Mancuso Jr. if I had a pitch for a potential sequels. I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.”

However, McLoughlin did pitch Mancuso another idea in which Jason met Freddy Kruger, and Mancuso apparently said to him:

“Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.”

Can a Jason Voorhees vs. Cheech and Chong have worked? Probably not in my opinion, though I’ve always thought that Friday The 13th: Part 3’s pair of dopeheads named Chuck and Chili were inspired by Cheech and Chong.

I’m a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don’t really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly ‘have a life’, I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I’ve always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
