Arlen Escarpeta best known for his work on American Dreams stars in Michael Bays revamped Friday the 13th flick hitting theaters February 13.
Escarpeta is the only black actor in the film and makes it almost to the end before falling prey to masked serial killer Jason Voorhees.
Escarpeta insists he doesnt go down without a fight, and believes his battle scene with Jason is among the best in the movie.
He laughs, Maybe black characters will be stronger in horror movies now. LL Cool J made it all the way in Deep Blue Sea, so why not?
But just because Jason is no longer racist, doesnt mean hes not scary.
Escarpeta admits he got a weird feeling in the pit of his stomach every time he shot a scene with the masked maniac and says making the horror flick was downright eerie.
