Actor Makes Film about His Dad's Mysterious Death
Friday the 13th Part 2 star Warrington Gillette II has co-written a horror movie scrutinizing his real-life stepmother's bizarre reaction to his father's mysterious death. Gillette II remains devastated over the unclear circumstances of his dad F.Warrington Gillet Jr's sudden death on 13 May 2002 and is still baffled by Palm Beach, Florida, socialite Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet's unusual behavior in the months following his demise. So he's shooting Bloody Special in an effort to avenge Elesabeth's decision to flee on a Mediterranean cruise with her new boyfriend, Cuban clothing salesman Andy Avello, so soon after the funeral. But Elesabeth insists Gillette II's film is just a tasteless means of making money. Gillette II - who played legendary movie madman Jason Voorhees in the 1981 second installment of the popular horror franchise - explains his storyline to website Pagesix.Com: "Now the son discovered to his dismay (that) there is no tombstone on his daddy's grave. What heiress in Palm Beach would forget a tombstone? How grave! Something is certainly wrong with this picture." Gillette II, 44, started writing a movie about his life at the urging of his producer friend Larry Spangler. Spangler adds, "When his father died, I smelled a rat. He talked to his father every day for 20 years. But they never let him in the house after that." However, Elesabeth rejects accusations she was having an affair with Avello - who's now dying - insisting their love didn't flourish until six months after her husband's death. She says, "The poor man (Avello) is dying now. The whole thing is a lie. The boy (Warrington) is very mixed up. He is desperate for money." Two years ago Warrington made an aborted attempt to have his father's body exhumed for forensic testing, claiming he backed off after receiving death threats.
