yeah, it also helps that Robert Englund is a such a gleeful over actor that his personas are totally and ridiculously overdone with such style that you totally love his evil character

Wow...thread ended up sparking some Friday the 13th convo, huh?

I myself got through the original and part 2 last night before crashing -- I too love when the potato sack-covered Jason jumps through the window and grabs Ginny...I just hoped that "Muffin" was alright while she was holding her!

Of course not...absolute classic sequence/kill...

Or how about when Voorhees takes the black dude's ("Julius") head off with one swift punch in Part VIII?

oh yes it was bad, realy bad, but still not "Jason Takes Manhattan" bad....

at least Jason X had two awesome kills (the liquid Hydrogen kill and the sleeping bag kills in the holodeck)

Re: Horror Fans, It's Gonna Be a Good -- and Blu -- Halloween...

Mike, are you KIDDING me? Jason Takes Manhattan was WORSE than Jason X?

I have to respectfully and wholeheartedly disagree here...in my opinion, there's no way putting Mr. V into outer space -- regardless of whether this was supposed to be "the future" or not -- was a better source for the basis of a screenplay than suggesting the zombie-esque killer "hitches" a ride to the Big Apple under the kids' boat...I understand "X" had some decent kill sequences (well, I suppose it did) but the film was laughably dumb next to the most laughably dumb of any series entry. I mean, it really should be up there with bombs like Grease 2 and Exorcist II as one of the worst motion pictures ever made. Was "Takes Manhattan" laughable? Yes. But nowhere in the same dimension as "X" -- at least "Takes Manhattan" kept the Crystal Lake feel and overall design elements to a certain extent unlike "X" where the killer has been taken aboard a...what was it..."Crystal Lake Research Facility" space vessel in the future or something? Give me a break...

Indeed, asere; The Final Chapter rocked and was monumental in the progression of the series for many reasons -- the main being, for no small part, the introduction of the Tommy Jarvis character and the way in which he "defeats" Jason at the end by hacking him up and giving him the classic telltale "hole through the eye" which we see in subsequent films' makeup jobs.

For me, though, the best were Jason Lives and The New Blood; I have a soft spot for Part III as well.
