    Part II will always be my favorite and one of my top ten horror all time. It was the first real horror film and R rated film I saw as a kid (think I was in 2nd grade) on HBO and it scared the hell out of me. And after revisiting the series several times I really think it is the scariest of the series today.

    Why does it bother you so much? I like FVJ a lot myself, its not the best but to someone it is, that's their preogative. Personally I see it abit more of a Nightmare film than a Friday film.

    How he runs is great too. To this day I'm still very wary of Mexican food.

    It is more Nightmare on Elm Street than Friday the 13th. In some ways it's more standard horror villain than either one. But the Friday the 13th opening is great.

    Don't get me wrong I think having it revolve around Freddy was the only way to do it really. Jason is definitely more reliant on his supporting cast than a Freddy is but I guess been a mute doesn't help lol I think Freddy vs Jason whilst been more of a Nightmare film definitely served the Jason character very well. We get a fair bit if his back story and character, more so than we have in a lot of the solo Jason movies outside of brief mentions of the legend. I also agree that the opening in Crystal Lake is great, it's very well done and the atmosphere in that scene is so gothic, I just love it.

    Something I wrote on this site before in another old thread, but I think it fits here too. (Excuse the laziness, this was my initial post)

    01-18-2006

    "Part 7 is my favorite. Although I enjoy all the rest. Part 7 could have been close to perfect if not for the last scene. I only wished John Carl Buechler would have directed more fridays. There just something special about that movie. The production quality is the best. Jason never looked so good(and I don't just mean Hodder) There's a viciousness to all the kills, that was not present in the first 6. I know there were some violent kills in the first 6 films but in part 7 its as if Jason was so pissed off. Take the end scene in the basement, there was such portrayal of anger by Jason(all without speaking) That whole ending starting from when the bitchy blonde opens the door was awesome. From the FX to the stunts, to the way Jason acts. I can watch the whole sequence over and over again. The way he flings the girl behind the TV set was fantastic. that little touch is what I'm talking about that makes the movie great. It was a kill then , get the F out of way. The kill, the anger, the stunt(by the girl), the realistic action(they didn't go to far, like having him throw her 30 feet in slo mo), NO CGI. I have yet to see something of that calibur in a long time.

    One of my favorite parts(which just about nobody talks about) is when he comes in the house and while trying to corner Tina and Nick. And Jason quickly closes the door to prevent them from going in that direction. It gave him a very human factor. Or when Jason yanks off the wire from around his neck. I'll put that non speaking moment by a killer against just about any other slasher movie. It was like , "thats it your F'n dead bitch"

    Just thought of another scene. Its from Part 8(which alot of people don't like) When he slams that druggie's head into the drain/steam pipe. That's the anger I'm talking about. "

    ---------------------------

    I would like to highlight the part about the door in my old post. (its what made me think of my past post) I never see anyone mentioned that part. The way he closes the door is something very unique imo. I wonder if people even notice that very small detail. It showed Jason as anything but a stupid lumbering killer. Also I would like to say that when I said except for the last scene, that I was referring to the father jumping up from the dock.

    The ending should have ended like this. House blows up, cut to the two on the dock watching the explosion, cut to the scene with the firemen at the scene & one of them finding the mask. (just like what we saw in the movie) But then cut to a view from the woods of somebody watching the firemen/survivors at the smoldering house (keeping with tradition, the stalking visual from all previous movies) Then show the boots, & slowly pan up to chest level & Jason's burnt face. Heavy breathing, snarl .... Boom End credits. That's how the dam movie should have ended. It would have been the first time that Jason was shown to have gotten away clean. Instead of what we are used to.

    I think Part VII uncut with the fisherman in the boat ending added would make it perfect. I like the Dock scene and everything else.

    Aside from the first film--and any where the setting is a highlight (Manhattan, space, vs. Freddy)--these mostly blend together for me. The remake stands out, however, as it was perhaps the one I saw with the most tension and jump scares, although its faults were plenty (even if I was thoroughly entertained from a slasher perspective).

    Therefore, I voted " and your friends are dead," because the game was wacky and that quote is pretty much the end result of all of these films.

    Yeah, althought its a shame they never got to shoot with the really dead version that he created. I keep thinking would they not be able to clean that footage up at all? I mean the in MBV uncut version you can see the picture quality on those scenes isn't great but at least its there.

    I think they were saying you would look hot in a wet t-shirt contest.
