The Winchester brothers of the CW’s Supernatural have battled a variety of villains from the underworld, including vampires, vengeful ghosts, poltergeists and a horde of demons. This season is no different, with the brothers already going up against the Seven Deadly Sins, a pack of demons representing the human vices, and the Changelings, creatures who have taken the form of homicidal children.
Seeing as Supernatural just returned to the small screen, viewers can expect to see a lot more evil characters making their way into the show, one of whom happens to be one of the most popular maniacal villains on the big screen.
Warning, spoilers ahead.
According to series creator Eric Kripke, Jason Vorhees from the Friday the 13th film series, will be making an appearance, though he will be slightly different from the creepy serial killer that terrorized thrill-seeking teens on the big screen.
“We have Jason from Friday the 13th, the character with the hockey mask,” Kripke told Cult Times. “He shows up in Episode 10. We have cleared the rights to actually use Jason. We have a twist on it so it is not really Jason out there, but we found an interesting way to bring him in so Sam [Jared Padalecki] and Dean [Jensen Ackles] fight Jason from Friday the 13th. In our world, that is a pretty cool guest star.”
While Kripke is excited to have such an icon from the horror genre gracing Supernatural, he is even more wound up with the series’ special Christmas episode entitled “A Very Supernatural Christmas.”
In the episode, the brothers find themselves battling a creature that “comes down chimneys, stuffs you in a leather bag, takes you up the chimney and eats you.” The creature is an anti-Santa Claus of sorts, though he works in relatively the same way as the red and jolly Holiday icon: he doesn’t come to people who are good, but punishes the ones who are bad.
“It is our version of the Christmas cheer,” Kripke said. “Our teaser is grandpa dressed as Santa, putting presents under the tree, the kids are watching from the stairs, and this monster comes down from the chimney, slaughters this guy, and drags him up the chimney. Then the teaser out is the kids saying, ‘Santa?’… I am so excited. In the first two minutes we are killing Santa in the most violent manner.”
