Halloween Horror Movie Challenge Day Twenty

I had accidentally missed a day so the last couple days were off but that has been corrected. So back on track. Day Twenty – What is your favorite way a horror killer has been disposed of? FRIDAY THE 13TH THE FINAL CHAPTER (1984) d: Joseph Zito WARNING: This post contains spoilers! I admit I am a huge Jason fan. The recent release of the CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES documentary was like finding gold to me. While it did not end up being Jason’s final chapter (though it was the last time Jason was actually scary) my all time favorite death of a killer, from any film, is in FRIDAY THE 13TH THE FINAL CHAPTER. After seeing THE PROWLER producers were eager to sign on director Joseph Zito to kill off the iconic Jason Voorhees. Having worked with Tom Savini on THE PROWLER where Savini did the make up effects, Zito […]

Day Twenty-Two – What is your favorite horror movie death scene? FRIDAY THE 13TH THE FINAL CHAPTER (1984) d: Joseph Zito I have to say that one of the most impressive deaths I’ve seen is Jason’s death in ‘Friday The 13th The Final Chapter’. Granted this was before they thought it was going to continue for many more sequels but at the time they wanted to make sure Jason was deader than dead.

This makes Jason fall to the ground onto the handle of the blade, which is still in his head, and he then slides down slicing his head open. Yes, there might be better or more creative ones out there […]

Day Twenty-One – What is your favorite horror franchise? FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980 – 2009) I admit I am a complete sucker for the ‘Friday The 13th’ films. I think because I was introduced to Jason at such an early age that they hold such a special meaning for me that I find them so entertaining. Plus when I was a kid they were pumping them out every year practically so they were a part of my childhood. The unstoppable killer who slaughtered people until he went against one final girl after another, even one with powers(!), and a robot in space, to be a silent icon of horror. Granted I don’t hold them up to the same regard as I would the ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ films or even most of the ‘Halloween’ films. But what the ‘Friday The 13th’ films have in abundance is the simple fun factor. […]
