JASON'S MOTHER IS THE BELL WITCH
Big River Pictures, producer of BELL WITCH: THE MOVIE, has announced that Betsy Palmer, who became a horror icon as Jason?s murderous mom in the original FRIDAY THE 13TH, will provide the voice of the titular supernatural villainess. The actress is flying from New York to Burbank this week to record the Witch?s voiceover. Writer/director S. Shane Marr heard Palmer?s voice on a Halloween TV show, and says he?s excited to 'have such an incredible legend of ?screen scream? bringing the Bell Witch to life.'
BELL WITCH: THE MOVIE is one of three recent features to document a legendary haunting that took place in Tennessee in the 1800s; there?s also this past fall?s DVD release THE BELL WITCH HAUNTING and AN AMERICAN HAUNTING, currently shooting in Romania. You can find THE MOVIE?s official website here and read about this movie and BELL WITCH HAUNTING in Fango #239, now on sale.
