A party to celebrate the launch of new movie Friday the 13th turned into a real life blood bath last week when one of the franchise's former stars was attacked with an axe.
Warrington Gillette, who played serial killer Jason Vorhees in 1981's Friday the 13th Part 2, was attending an event on Friday honoring the new slasher remake.
The actor arrived in full costume, wearing the character's famous ice hockey mask, and took to the stage to frighten party-goers wielding a real axe.
But his performance ended in disaster when a woman invaded the stage and tried to wrestle his weapon away from him, slashing his hand.
A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "She jumped on stage and tried to grab his axe. It was straight out of a horror movie. Lingerie-clad models were running and screaming, as a blood-soaked Jason ran off the runway to get to a hospital."
The character Vorhees has been played by ten actors over the course of 12 films, with Derek Mears playing the latest incarnation of the mass murderer.
