Hells no. Part 5 isnt the worst. Why? Just because it isnt a real jason? It does have the real jason in it however. It feels more like a f13 film than jgth, jx or fvj.

Yeah, Roy acting as Jason is a huge factor. However, the film just sucks. The group of teens in V are possibly the most annoying in the series, and as DamonD7 posted earlier in this topic - the movie is tiresome to sit through.

 

I have never jived with A New Beginning, even when I first watched it.

Part V is the last one to contain that atmosphere from the first four films, with plenty of classic dark comedy bits (unlike VI's overt PG13-rated dad & kid-friendly farces) and grisly murders. Even with every murder scene cut down by the MPAA, it still feels violent and like a true slasher film. So many amazing lines. Bizarre photography. And the last downbeat eating until the remake. Seriously, look at VI, VII, VIII, IX and X. The heroes get away to live happily ever after. Contrast with 1 that has Alice psychologically scarred by Jason, II with the unknown whereabouts of Paul, III with Chris going insane, IV with Tommy's psyche left in limbo and V with the final girl being knifed by the final boy... I just don't know what happened to the series after this. Oh wait. Commercialism. But at least the series went 5 films before the inevitable fate, unlike the Elm Street series, which lasted far less.

JGTH is my least favorite. 5 used to be my least favorite for the soul purpose that Jason wasn't even in it. I did however rewatch it recently and I must say it has some cool kills and hilarious dialogue. "You big dildo, eat your fucking slop." 😂

Jason goes to hell is the worst movie in this franchise by my opinion

Jason goes to Hell

 

The movie feel very disrespectful to the franchise. It does't care about anything the past films already established and instead invents it own new lore.

 

Like he can possess people now, turn into a demon fetus, can't die unless someone related to him kills him, has some rivalry with a bounty hunter who somehow knows all this bull****. (Because the Voorhees's are this special magical clan now I guess)

 

Character's act like they are in a horror movie parody.  And since he can possess people we barley see Jason in the movie, just some possessed dudes (not that I even liked this Jason's big dumb rubber looking head).

JGTH is one of the worst movies of all time, let alone in the F13 series.

 

Also, I really don't understand the hatred part 5 gets.  I thought it was brilliant that the whole movie hinged on a misdirect.  Jason WAS dead, and it was great that they had Tommy hallucinating that he was back.  A lot of the kill shots were framed similarly to how the first movie was shot, where you didn't get a big close-up on the killer.  So what if it wasn't Jason?

 

Second unpopular opinion: Halloween 3: Season of the Witch was a good movie.  (Halloween was never supposed to be only about Michael.  It was envisioned as an anthology series, with a new story each time.  If they hadn't made the second one about Michael, I don't think 3 would've gotten the hate that it still gets to this day)

Part 1 - 7 is essential to me. They are the complete f13 series in my headcannon. Jason is still at the bottom of the lake, put there by tinas dad. Part 8 is okay but...eh.

They were in a parody, dude.

I end it with part 6 in my headcannon, but yep. The idea of the curse being broken by sending Jason to the bottom of Crystal lake works

I'd have to say Jason X. Apart from the face crush kill - it has very little redeeming features. It's a horrible cheesefest with terribly cheesy dialogue/one liners - a robot Jason who looks like something from the Power Rangers and even Harry's score is terrible and repetitive (massive Harry fan BTW). 

 

They dropped the ball....if they'd have created an "Aliens" type atmosphere with dark tunnels, a serious tone  - it could've been better. Instead it was bright, colourful and was like an episode of "Saved by the Bell - The Class of 2500" with Jason shoe-horned into it. Terrible movie.

 

Farmer's script was originally darker - but I was around during the film's production and I remember hearing from genuine sources that Cunningham insisted on adding all the crappy dialogue etc. 

 

Who makes a horror movie with bright rainbow colours adourning the set and shots? Poor film making. 

 

I remember when the space setting was announced, and after Critters IV and the Leprechaun in Space...we all thought..."What the fuck are they thinking?" - and weren't we all proved right!

Kane's look and involvement make 7 a strong contender. The MPAA just neutered that movie, though.

 

In one of my "looser headcanon tmelines" I go to part 7. In my loosest, I watch the whole series including JgtH.

 

I may be a masochist.

7 has grown on me over the years, but I didn't like it too much originally. I didn't even like Kane's portrayal at first (sac-religious I know). Was a big CJ Graham fan and I thought the concept of a walking corpse heavy breathing was ridiculous (Why would something that is dead need oxygen?!). These days I'd say Kane is my favourite Jason. I love JTM - and I think he's at his best in that movie. I also think his 'look' is the best in JTM. It's why Illfonic need to "darken" his clothes for the game. Would make for excellent camouflage. Something freaky about a yellowish/white Hockey mask seemingly floating towards you within the cover of the darkness.

+1 there. I'm out of positivity as usual. 

 

I honestly don't know why I bother. I generally watch 2-4 and 6. It's just every so often I watch them all. Maybe I need to pull out those disks and mail them to somebody I dislike.

What is funny is I loved 7 when I was younger. An X-Man type of final girl. Boss looking Jason. What isn't to love? The cutaways. As I grew older I realized how tame the film was. Fuck you, MPAA!! 

 

I also really liked JTM at the time. (and think it's ok save for some plot points like Crytal lake connecting to the ocean, the Rennie/kid Jason stuff and the ending.) It was the first F13 I saw at the movies. I agree that his look is good there. It has a Micheal Myers Shape element to it. this blankness that is frightening.

I like the kids in Part 5, to me they are the most innocent of the entire series. They didn't trespass, they didn't have anything to do with the camp or lake (minus Tommy) and they were all there trying to get their lives back together.

Part 1 - 7 is essential to me. They are the complete f13 series in my headcannon. Jason is still at the bottom of the lake, put there by tinas dad. Part 8 is okay but...eh.


1-8 is the series for me but it really feels like it ends with Part 5. The feel of every movie after 5 is quite a bit different... zombies, occult, psychics, New York/Vancouver.

JGTH is the worst to me, watching a Jason movie where he just jumps from body to body was super weird. Also the kills in the movie weren't that great either. Jason X wasn't great but I atlas had fun watching it and I cant say the same sadly for JGTH.
