It's the Friday the 13th Blog Hop!

It's the Friday the 13th Blog Hop!
and she will display the link to the next stop in the Hop in her post.  Each blogger will do the same, so you'll be visiting every link in the Hop's chain.  If that host is offering a giveaway on his/her blog, go ahead and enter to win their contest.  

*NOTE* These contests are not connected to the grand prize drawings at the end of the Hop! They are for those individual blogs.

Follow the links as they lead you to the grand prize forum at the end.  Fill out the form provided there and you'll be added to the drawing.  Among the prizes are books, gift cards, and a Kindle.  That's right.  Enter to win and you'll have a chance at the grand prize--A Kindle!

So, if you came to me first, you might want to skip over to her and follow the chain.  You don't want to miss out on the great posts the others are sharing!  With all the amazing authors taking part, this should be a fantastic day of hopping!

Friday the 13th

The first Friday the 13th of 2012 has many meanings.  It’s the “Blame Someone Else Day,” the “International Skeptics Day” and the “Make Your Dream Come True Day.”   Sounds like some great themes for a BLOG HOP! 

But probably the meaning that sticks out the most in my mind is the unlucky, scare-me-to-death day that the movies portrayed as I grew up.

Friday the 13th (1980)
Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
Friday the 13th Part III (1982)
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)
Jason X (2002)
Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
Friday the 13th (2009)

Enjoy a little taste...

Oh no no, no Jason movies for me thank you! :)

Sharon Hamilton said...

I find some of the old black and white films the scarriest. Never saw a Jason movie and couldn't bring myself to see the Exorcist. Yeah, I'm a fradie cat.

JeanMP said...

I hadn't realized how many Jason movies there are. Not a big fan of those I prefer the old ones like Dracula.

How could I not love this blog!? Not only is it my 50th bday on Fri the 13th...but it was all about the movie, which I have a "sorta" connection with. The first movie was filed in Blairstown and Hope, NJ, where I am from. Also, in the original first movie, about halfway thru..right befor the lead counselor is killed...he is sitting in a diner talking to a waitress. I worked at that diner for 4 years as a cook...standing at the grill you can see in the background. They came back to the areaa for #7 and the cast and crew came to the diner to was awesome!

Michelle Bledsoe said...

I am a scaredy cat when it comes to horror movies. On Friday 13th it's not the superstitions that get me, it's how crazy people actually act...LOL

I don't like many horror movies.. I'm such a scaredy cat!!!

I do like Candyman tho....

Charlene A. Wilson said...

Thanks for stopping by, everyone. I have to admit, I could never sit through all of any of the scary things! ;D I did see the Exorcist when I was a teen, Sharon, and was freaked for the longest. Lol. I'm like Shadow and Michelle...a scaredy cat.

Krysykat, Chello, Jean - I was surprised at how many there were too! Makes me wonder how so many people love that kind of rush. I'm a mellow sort. I like a little jolt every now and then, but wow.

Aww, come on, Danielle. Just a little clip. Lol.;)

Yeah, Sacannah, don't let the little one in on it. ;) Come back later for a little freakout.

That's amazing Betty! Happy Birthday! How fun would that be to have the cast and crew where you worked. Thanks for sharing!

Current friends are always welcome in the drawings June and Sylvia! Most definitely! :)

And yes, yes, Michelle! I think you're right. Friday the 13th brings out the weirdness in people. Lol!

You be safe too, Linda!

Good luck on the Hop!

I'm with you, Gena. Especially if it's over the top and too fake. But if I do a horror story, I'm more for the suspense.

Marytattoo - Now there you go. Right to the point! Hahahaha. Good luck!

Glad you're having fun SusieQ. I've done several hops, but none quite like this. These are great authors to work with!

No worries, Cafey and Sherry. Cornerstone Deep isn't a horror's very much a romance. :)
