Unleashed and Unstoppable! ! Hi five
I always liked this one a lot, it's one of my faves in the series. Tater-sack hood with the little eye hole, I loved this Jason. A Classic!!!
Happy Friday the 13th!


The Jason is dead. Long live the Jason

Arguably... or, I guess I should say inarguably since very few Friday the Thirteenth fans will disagree with me, this is the worst movie of the whole series suffering from a copycat killer and a lack of the original and true Jason.

The movie kicks off with a much older (and different) Tommy Jarvis being sent to a halfway home for troubled teens. As it turns out, having his mother and friends hacked to death by a whacko in a hockey mask had a negative effect on the boy and now, suffering from dementia and depression, Tommy is struggling to put his life back into order.

The movie plays like an old episode of Scooby-Doo as the characters try to figure out who-done-it before he does it to them. By the end, the movie is tired and boring even with the elements of black humor being injected into the series.

True, the body count is high and the gore is impressive, but the characters suck and you're actually rooting for the lame Jason impostor to finish them off so you don't have to watch them anymore.

By the final frame, you're groaning as the movie reaches its ultimate and predictable conclusion. Thankfully, it was ignored as Part VI came along.
Here are five more films I own that I didn't want to give a particularly long write up about.

The Postman Always Rings Twice
This is the poor 1981 version. I always heard it was a good movie and all, but there's just so much wrong with it. DAvid Mamet wrote and Jack Nicholson stars in this noirish tale about a drifter who blows into town, works for a borish man, falls in love with the wife of his new boss, and together the wife and Jack plan out and execute the man's murder. Then they go to court, turn against each other...and who cares?!?!?!?!?! Just a waste of time.


I don't know...I just could never get into the whole Freddie Kriger thing. Wes Craven is at the helm to tell the tale of a serial killer that kills in dreamland. Brought nothing to the table and really is quite boring and stale. I always just think: "WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!!"

Friday the 13th: Part Two
I bought this cold having never seen it around the New Year. I never really got into the whole Jason thing either. But, this is bad...real bad. I mean, when it ends you have no idea what happened to Jason or the last surviving male at the camp. Poor execution and poor script. Not all that scary or gory. BAHH
If your a fan of the F13th Series this is definately a important film. For in Part 2 we get to meet the grown up Jason who in now the one terrorizing crystal lake.
Good fun with a few scares. It had been awhile since I last saw this and there were a few parts that jumped me. Good fun!

I'm not going to do a big breakdown of the film or anything, just wanted to post my thoughts. Ejoyable and fun. Its a friday the 13th film and I think its either one of those things that you either love or hate. Me I love em.
This movie gets crapped on by a lot of Friday fans but I personally think it's the best of the sequels. So the ending is a bit goofy, whatever. These films are to be enjoyed, not analyzed by art critics.
I really liked this movie. That's saying a lot too. Usually I cringe at slasher films. This one was great though. Too bad 90% of the sequels suck.
Friday the 13th Part 2: Much better than the first, but still a 7/10. I could have sworn until I saw the credits that the part of Paul was played by Woody Harrelson, even though I'm sure Woody was much younger than the actual actor in 1981.

I had some fun today talking with Puppy on Yahoo, and I'm rushing through this entry because I want to call her. By the way, did anyone see her new pic? Wowww. She's gonna do some photoshop stuff of me soon, and hopefully composite a shot of me and her together ;)

I just logged off of Final Fantasy XI, and before I did everyone I was partying with told me that I'm the nicest, friendliest player they've met, not to mention the best White Mage. I'm sooo happy about that. Oh, and that reminds me, speaking of Puppy and compliments, she gave me the best one today: "If there was any justise in the world, everyone would be carrying you around on their shoulders and chatting your name" - Thanks again, Puppy!
Comments pending.

After watching Friday the 13th part 1 and feeling a bit dissapointed with it. I decided to watch Friday the 13th part 2. Now I wasn't expecting much. A lot of people said that this movie sucked. I disagree. I actually liked it more than the first Friday the 13th. This is where Jason's killings start. I actually thought Jason was more scary with the burlap sack on his head instead of the hockey mask. But the hockey mask does look better atleast. I didn't find the first Friday the 13th movie scary at all. It had a few jumpy momments. I found this had many more jumpy and scary momments then its predecessor. I usually do not like short films. I prefer that movies are long than 90 minutes. This one was only about 85 minutes. The length worked in favor of this movie. If it were longer it would definetely have been much less enjoyable. I am suprised Friday the 13th fans didn't like this entry and enjoyed the first more. By today's standard this movie is okay. I am sure it was much more enjoyable in the 80's. The storyline is quite good as well especially compared to other friday the 13th films. I liked the ending as well. It was mysterious. Now next up I'am going to watch Friday the 13th Part 3(d). Overall Friday the 13th part 2 was a good entry into the franchise. Fans of slasher films and other Friday the 13th movies will most likely enjoy this movie. If your looking for a hockey masked jason, you wont find it here. If your looking for Jason's first movie or just a good old school horror film, this is it and its better than most of the other movies in the Friday the 13th series. An additonal note is that when Jason was teased as a child, the other kids put a burlap sack on his head. This may be the reason he wears a burlap sack in this movie.

Rating- 7/10
Decent sequel.
This wasn't very much worse than the original, unfortunately for it that's what made up the fine line between OK and medicore.

Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter

Review: (Spoilers!)

Ok, there's Crispin Glover (George McFly) doing this awesome dance to some awesome metal. That plus the nudity are the only positives of The Final Chapter, which it isn't. Now, time to ruin it...

Jason escapes from the morgue after getting an axe to the head that same night. Hey look, horny teenagers showed up around Crystal Lake! They all die and the only ones left are Corey Feldman and his sister, who live deep in the woods and their mother is the one who rented the cabin to the teenagers. Now it makes sense. Little Tommy, big Corey F, dresses up like a retard to distract Jason so his sister can fuck up the whole deal by missing Jason and just cutting off his mask, exposing his double plus retarded face.

Anyways, big Corey F goes fucking nutz and chops Jason's head to bits. At the end he looks like a complete fuckshit numb fuck retard as he gives the camera an evil look. This lets you know the next movie is going to be about him being fucking crazy. Part 1 & 2 are good, fuck the rest till Jason becomes an awesome zombie in Part 6: Jason Lives!

My reviews for Friday the 13th Parts 5-9
I finally saw this one yesterday. I'm building my F13 collection and plan to get them all except Jason X and A New Beginning since it didn't have anything to do with Jason. Much like Halloween III.
Although far from great, the first installment of the "Friday the 13th" series was a substantially creepy sleeper that went on to become a blueprint for the modern horror genre. This first sequel is drivel, pure and simple.
Friday The 13th Part II


A fresh batch of teenage camp counselors return to the ill-fated Camp Crystal Lake five years after its most recent atrocities. Since the apparent perpetrator of those crimes was decapitated by the only survivor, the plucky teens ignorantly go about the business of reviving the camp, unaware that they are being stalked by an unseen figure who lives in the woods, waiting for the right opportunity to take bloody revenge.


'Friday The 13th: Part II' is another great achievement for the slasher series. I've only seen the first two, so I know that the series will drop eventually, the question is when it'll take effect. Steve Miner made his directorial debut on this movie and went and directed the 3rd part in the series as well. Miner has directed a lot of TV show episodes, but his best known movies are probably 'Halloween H20' and 'Lake Placid'. Miner has directed other movies but from what I can tell they're nothing major. Miner is also said to be the director of the 'Day of the Dead' remake, who knows how that'll play out.

While of course the acting is pretty terrible, I think it's a ritual now for slasher movies. I think the directors do it on purpose now they're like, "Hey, lets get the worst actors we can find, just because we can and have the power to." Then it ended up becoming a trend, because hey everyone has some kind of joke at work that they do, why can't this be theirs? But then again this is one of the few types of movies that can get away with it and still be good. The main thing for a slasher movie is the kills, if you don't at least have some sweet ass original kills then your done. 'Friday The 13th: Part II" definitely has a some nice ones in there, one of them being a "kill two birds with one stone" type thing. Which was definitely a good kill for most all horror fans.

Some people I've noticed didn't really like the burlap sack that Jason wears in this movie as a mask. But I liked it a lot actually, it adds more realism to it I thought. It just shows that he didn't just pick up a hockey mask and start wearing it, he started out with a sack with one eye hole in it. I don't know maybe I'm just weird like that. While I thought the movie was every bit as good as the original, from beginning to the sweet ending.

While I am a huge horror fan, I am behind on a lot of my classic horror movies. So right now I am working on watching all of the 'Friday The 13th' movies, I have the 3rd one in my possession right now to watch in the next day or two. And I still got to finish the 'Halloween' and 'Nightmare on Elm Street' series. Maybe one day I'll get caught up and be on track. Until then go slash up grab you a burlap sack or hockey mask and just go run around your neighborhood like a maniac.

(* 1/2)
Jason Vorhees the son of teen killer Mrs. Vorhees returns from Camp Krystal lake to kill teens in revenge for the death of his mother.

It's pretty much the same as the first one, but worse acting and you really could careless if all the actors get killed.
