Hello and welcome to the next halloween movie blog. This time I am covering one of the more acclaimed horror series of all time Friday the 13th and this is the first in a series of blogs covering the life of Jason and friends :)
The first move follows the reopening of Camp Crystal Lake where a boy drowned due to the carelessness of their camp counselors. Apparently the new counselors haven't learned their lesson humping like rabbits as soon as they arrive on site. It looks likes the ghost of Jason has decided to come in and teach those counselors a lesson they will never forget.
This is by far my favorite of the series. I love the the killer is someone that you did not expect and if you are familiar with the Jason character and are not terribly familiar the movie itself you are very much blown away by the aspect. This set up a long series of killing and terror and is well worth the praise it gets.
Well Friday the 13th Part 2 takes up from the first one where the one survivor gets a nasty surprise. Also a group of teens take refuge at the camp where all those people got killed. You get to meet with the real Jason who has decided that he is damn tired of meeting with these crazy horney teens.
I did enjoy this as it was the first real appearance of the real Jason and he has a sort of life and not unlife in this one being horribly deformed and living in the woods all those years. They even have a scene where he thinks one of the kids is actually his mother and is convinced not to kill for a moment. This unfortunately does set up a long line of crap that we have to put up with and speaking of...
Jason who has been badly hurt in the last movie manages to hide and lick his wounds. By recoverying we mean he is going to kill anyone that comes nearby his recovery shed. Sadly enough we have a lot of horney teens nearby and who does Jason like to kill?
Part three had a few good points with the first being it was in 3D and had some cool jump scares. The second is that this is the first time we see Jason with the characteristic hockey mask and machete that we know and love. Again we get to see the hunting down of teenagers which is the norm and a climactic death scene at the end.
Ok Jason isn't dead yet but this is the Final Chapter...ok I have a hard time saying that with a straight face. Well Jason gets up in the morgue and slashes his way back to Crystal lake where he finds yet another group of horney teens out to have fun in a camp known for continued death and murder. The teens clash with Jason yet again and this time Jason is finally killed...for real this time.
This movie begs for me to wonder if these kids are that dumb why do they manage to defeat him in each film. Who goes to a lake that has been having murder after murder take place at it? Well this was to be the end and it is in a way as this is the end of the flesh and blood Jason that we barely know these days and is to begin with the supernatural engine of destruction that we all know and love. Until next time.
