I personally think the series tanked after part 5. I could never understand why they turned a straight slasher film series into a zombie flick (I do like 6, but it just does not fit in my opinion). I know they wanted to try and do something different, but it seemed like most people were willing to pay to see the same movie remade 5 times before... why mess with a good thing? Leave the undead to Romero. Now that Jason can live on in the "VS" films (JASON VS FREDDY, JASON VS ASH, JASON VS GODZILLA, JASON VS THE TERMINATOR.....), I keep hoping they will round up some of the past cast members (the box set proves Amy Steele, Corey Feldman and Dana Kimmell are somewhat game) and do a HALLOWEEN H20ish slasher update (maybe then New Line could actually use the FRIDAY THE 13th title).
