Believe it Or Not: A Fan Brewed a Special Friday the 13th Beer Using Water from the Real Camp Crystal Lake

Published

Camp Crystal Lake American Red Ale

Sometimes, fans do the most awesome things, such as Friday the 13th mega-fan Roger Krzeminski, who took his love of the Friday the 13th films to a whole new level.

According to Bloody Disgusting, Krzeminski took a lucky visit at the real life Camp Crystal Lake (known as Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco) as an opportunity to bring home a bit of Camp Crystal Lake.

“I asked at camp if I could take a few gallons of Crystal Lake water to make beer since I’m an avid homebrewer” Krzeminski said to Bloody Disgusting.

After getting the okay, Krzeminski took a few gallons of Lake water home, filtered and sanitized the water, and then made his own Camp Crystal Lake American Red Ale.

“A standard batch of beer is 5 gallons which gives you 54 beers. I use 7 gallons because there is a considerable amount of evaporation when you boil the wort (beer juice if you will) for 1 hour. I came out with 52 bottles as I did lose a little additional volume in the filter/sanitize process.”

“These are purely for personal consumption and gifts for friends/family. I’m not selling these or anything of that sort” Krzeminski said.

“If I am fortunate enough to be invited back to camp by the generous folks at Crystal Lake Tours (CLT), I would be thrilled to get the opportunity to make more. At the end of the day, this project of mine would have never left the ground if it weren’t for the generosity and goodwill of the people at CLT. If anything were to come of this, I’d truly love for the outcome to be more people directed to the website and buy souvenirs, tour tickets or merchandise to support the camp and to keep “Camp Crystal Lake” thriving so future fans and scouts can still see this place and enjoy the experiences as much as I really have.”

REVIEW: Tragedy Girls

Published

Tragedy Girls

During this Halloween season there will be a lot of movies available for horror fans, and while a bunch of new releases will be popping up throughout the month of October, I started to dig into some horror movies that have surfaced over the past few years that I had not gotten a chance to check out.

One such movie was Tyler Macintyre’s 2017 horror/comedy ‘Tragedy Girls’, which is now available on Hulu, and stars Brianna Hildebrand, Alexandria Shipp, Craig Robinson, Kevin Durand, Jack Quaid, and Josh Hutcherson.

According to the official synopsis: “Teenage crime reporters Sadie and McKayla are hot on the trail of a crazed serial killer. After capturing the maniac and holding him hostage, they soon realize that the best way to boost their social media stardom is to commit the murders themselves.”

The movie is a fun journey through a number of horror movie tropes, and despite being somewhat hollow at points and drifting away from the finer details in certain scenes, the cast performances and the personality of the movie more than make up for it, providing an entertaining experience.

Sadie and McKayle are obsessed with building a social media presence, while also authoring a memorable killing spree that will go down in history, and the movie hilariously shows their first few murders that, by circumstance, end up looking like accidents, which upsets the girls.

The girls are intensely focused on popularity via social media platforms, and driving viewers to their website, and also socially they go through the motions to fit in, such as cheerleading and prom planning.

But it fails to land in their intended way, which forces the girls to step up their game, and get more brutal with their killings.

As their popularity grows, their mindsets appear to change, especially as a relationship evolves between Sadie and Jordan (Quaid) which drives a wedge between the girls and shifts Sadie from a psychotic killer to a caring, socially engaged student that deviates completely from her destructive path.

The kills are hilariously brutal and the story, aside from some logical bumps in the road, provides plenty to bite into that doesn’t drag the movie down.
