Friday the 13th Unique Edition
It’s Friday and I’m at home. I’m watching one of the movies that I grew up with: Friday the 13th 8 (which is one of the worst). When I was a little kid (4 years), I watched with Mum the first one and I loved it. I was scared to death of a killer beneath my bed, but I never said anything. Every Friday the 13th( or when they were running out of movies) Super Siete (rest in pieces err, I meant peace) aired one or two movies in this saga. My Mom always watched it with me. Still remembered every time there was sex and nudity, she asked us to close our eyes….however she allowed us to see blood and violence (weird). As I watch this movie, I’m thinking it’s being 20 years since I first saw one, and how much I’ve changed. For instance, I am a peaceful being (except when hungry). There’s no such thing as seeing fake violence makes you violent. I am fine and thanks to you Jason Voorhees or Mrs. Voorhees.
That’s why I’m going to comment on your movies now!
Friday the 13th 2 (1981) The survivor of the first movie apparently lost her virginity and got killed, by an angry Jason. He wears a potato bag now. A new Camp is going to be reopened. A few of the cast enter the now forbidden Bloody Camp. Jason is around and slays everybody except the new “virgin” and her beau. We discover he is deformed, but obviously survives and the virgin is left completely insane. This one has the infamous spear death ( a couple stabbed while stabbing in sex…) . Rating: B
Friday the 13th 3 (D) (1982) Jason is alive and on the loose. This time he kills a group of hippyfied teens that are having a quiet vacation a cabin next to the lake. This movie isn’t that special, except the fact that he acquires his infamous hockey mask (from a really stupid and annoying dude) midway through the movie. A fun fact: this one was shot in 3D and last year I had the pleasant(?!) opportunity of watching it (with glasses and everything). Rating: B-
Friday the 13th: The final chapter (aka 4) (1984) No, obviously it isn’t the last. This one is quite good. There’s a lot of gore; an infamous fat hippie chick killed; swimming naked in the lake (don’t they all have a scene like that?) and also includes Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover in the cast. Rating: B+
Friday the 13th: A new beginning (1985) There is nothing to be mentioned about this movie. It’s absolutely horrendous and disappointing in so many levels. First of all, Jason is not the killer. Instead we’re left with the suspense of believing it’s Jason but it’s a stupid ambulance guy. Second, Tommy is the survivor of the last one and the hero on this and next movie. Nothing more, this movie is full of #*$@ Rating: F
Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives! (1986): My second favorite Jason movie. He gets resurrected when Tommy decides to check that Jason was dead. So he accidentally caused Jason to come back 5 times stronger. The death and gore scenes are soooooooooooo good. Highly recommended. Rating: A-
