Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan Fan Poster/Movie Review

Movie Review: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) (Director: Rob Hedden, Music: Fred Mollin, Jason: Kane Hodder) Let me start this review by saying this is a terrible movie. But with a title like “Jason Takes Manhattan,” how could anyone possibly take it seriously? I think we all know what we’re getting into. Immediately the tone of this

Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood Fan Poster/Review

Movie Review: Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) (Director: John Carl Buechler, Music: Fred Mollin, Jason: Kane Hodder)   This movie brings back some of the nostalgia of the original few movies: we’re on the lake, in the woods, and we’re very isolated with a band of partying teenagers. We’re gifted with a fantastic anthology opening spoken by

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives – Fan Poster/Review

Movie Review: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) (Director: Tom McLoughlin, Special Effects: Brian Wade, Music: Harry Manfredini/Alice Cooper, Jason: C.J. Graham) Jason Lives has always been one of my favorites in the series. Right away the scenery, the setting, and the tone feel more familiar, and more serious than the predecessor. Jason’s resurrection is spectacular and creepy and Jason takes

Friday the 13th: A New Beginning – Fan Poster/Review

Movie Review: Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (Director: Danny Steinmann, Music: Harry Manfredini) What can I say? This film is a who-done-it with an older Tommy Jarvis at a halfway home in the woods. None of the characters are likable, although Ethel’s awful character is pretty fun to watch if you don’t take her seriously. This is pretty endemic

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter – Fan Poster/Review

Movie Review: Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) (Director: Joe Zito, Special Effects: Tom Savini, Music: Harry Manfredini, Jason: Todd White)   There is a slow build at the beginning of this film. The opening shot, a long crane/dolly tracking shot from a helicopter to Jason dead in the barn at Higgen’s Haven, is really well done and lets the audience

Movie Review: Friday the 13th, Part 2 (1981) (Director: Steve Miner, Special Effects: Carl Fullerton, Music: Harry Manfredini, Jason: Steve Dash/Warrington Gillet(unmasked))   By far, one of the horniest group of kids in the series—4 couples, all very attractive—this film carries a lot sexual angst and nudity, but does a good job of telling the story with honesty. These kids aren’t models or
