Trivia

Kane Hodder appears in character as Jason. Robert Englund (better known as Freddy Krueger) introduces him as "my nemesis, Jason" - in reference to the fact that Friday the 13th: The New Blood (1988) was intended as a crossover with the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' series. Freddy vs. Jason (2003) was still thirteen years in the future when this TV special came out - but Kane Hodder did not end up playing Jason in it. See more »

The Horror Hall of Fame (1990)

**** (out of 4)

Robert Englund hosted this first of three Horror Hall of Fame television specials that were recorded at Universal Studios. While there are some flaws throughout the program, there's no question that it is highly entertaining and features some great tributes to the horror films that are now classics.

The films/people inducted to the Hall of Fame were THE EXORCIST, Boris Karloff, PSYCHO, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, Forrest J. Ackerman, ALIEN, Vincent Price and THE Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE. What's best is that they're all given a nice tribute but we also get interviews or appearances from the people who were involved. George Romero, William Friedkin, Dan O'Bannon, Linda Blair, Janet Leigh, Pat Hitchcock, Ridley Scott and others are interviewed.

We also get appearances from Roger Corman, Tom Skerritt, Anthony Perkins, the Cryptkeeper, Chucky, Kane Hodder dressed as Jason, Catherine Hicks, Joe Dante, Rick Baker, John Landis, Sam Kinison and even a comic skit from Phyllis Diller. The tribute also gives an award to the Best Picture of 1990 as well as previews of upcoming movies and a nod to Asian horror movies.

If you're a fan of horror then you're going to love watching this tribute and especially since there are so many famous names here. A lot of them are no longer with us, which makes this even better. Englund does a very good job with the hosting duties and he ends the episode with a very funny little twist. The most touching moment is certainly when Price accepts his award.

It's really too bad that this series only lasted for three programs but it's certainly great to have it.
