People are aware of the irony that Donald Trump chose to visit the UK on a Friday the 13th, right? Hope Jason is there to greet him at Heathrow.
The very first time I ever saw any semblance of Friday the 13th was Halloween 1989 from a motel room in Florida, it was actually a trailer, splicing together the campfire tale from Part 2 and this shot from The Final Chapter:
A few years later when I was of age and sat down to watch the movie after midnight, I was surprised this didn’t occur, nor did it occur in Parts 2 or 3. Oddly, I saw all other seven Paramount films before finding a copy of The Final Chapter.
Woo! It’s Jason-day!
I love wakeboarding; my kinda sport… Although doing it without an impact vest seems a bit dumb, but then how else would we see boobs? Also, Chelsea’s feet fly off the board when she crashes out – not easy if you’re strapped in right! Also, the board totally disappears thereafter. Nayyyy… those fuckers float.
Anyway – be good, kids. No drinking, drugs, pre-martial sex or, as we see, naked adrenalin sports.
Always listen to your danger-sensing girlfriend!
…Though she doesn’t exactly help him when Jason descends, does she?
What makes Jason Lives such a cool sequel is that the summer camp is back! And open!! With kids in it!!!
The best scene involves nice counsellor Paula (Kerry Noonan) consoling a nightmare-plagued camper – called Nancy! – while she is unknowingly stalked by Jason. It’s awesome.
Happy Friday the 13th everyone!
You know the rules…
