  1. Beyond doubt Kane defined how Jason moved and breathed, like when he turns his head first then follows through with his body. So he will always define Jason Vorhees on any level. Having said that, CJ did an outstanding job with his posture, fast walk, and quick turns of his head to spot a new target. I will also give props to Richard Brooker in that his size and menace broke new ground with Jason and began the trend of the super strength Jason, followed by Ted White. Warrington Gillette brought an adult Jason to the big screen and did an amazing job with his sinister stalking. And the rest of the Jason actors did well in their own rights. But Kane is the iconic and essentialJason and deserves his niche in fandom appreciation
  2. 5 by my count. To be fair, another time was because I let my stepson try it. But even when I lose the mask, Tommy is in, and the sweater has been taken, I still go for the kills. Once I shifted right into a kill squad and by sheer blind luck, grabbed SG before anyone could react and killed her. Twice, though, that tactic backfired and I died. But that's game play and the choices you make. Cheers and game on, my friends
  3. I should also point out that the case file of Ed Geins was also the inspiration for Psycho and influenced Silence of the Lambs. The film about him starred Kane Hodder, who looks nothing like Ed but portrayed him perfectly.
  4. The fascination with horror movies over the years has definitely evolved from being tense from the atmosphere created to simply being outright shocked. The originals like Dracula, Frankenstein, etc were basically entering uncharted territory and set the stage for the later efforts. We can thank Hitchcock for understanding the effect of suspense over gore, and I'm grateful Carpenter was influenced by his examples. I do enjoy the old black and white movies simply because those are the ancestors to what we enjoy today. The Hammer films were another great series with knew how to raise the hairs on your neck. After Halloween and Friday the 13th, the horror movies were all shock and jump at you types, and they most certainly have their place in theaters. With the advanced special effects available today, it was only inevitable that the shock movies would more commonly use them. The originals used what they had at the time and they did well. I notice a recent trend in movies that have returned to the formula of suspense and atmosphere over gory effects, and I'm grateful for that. People like to be scared, and both types serve that need quite well. Also, Texas Chainsaw was influenced by Ed Geins story, which is another point. Today's movies have more history to use as source material, so the story lines can be more diverse and original. The zombie craze was indeed started by Night of the Living Dead, and I think it was far superior to the sequels that relied on gory zombie munching than plot and suspense. I hope I didn't bore you with this. Cheers and game on, my friends
  5. I always assumed she got them from the police evidence locker or something like that since she is the sheriff's daughter.
  6. I would vote for Ali the biker or Sgt. Brosky. Both of them would be bad ass
  7. My personal favorite will always be the 1978 original. I understand Rob Zombies desire to put a fresh take on the story and thought his version involving Michaels childhood put a different spin on his background. However, while I did enjoy the 2018 version, I preferred the plot of attempting to kill his sister to be far more sinister. To me, it creates the atmosphere that she will never be safe until he is dead and gone forever. He will always have a target and those who get in his way are in mortal danger, even if he consistently botching the job of killing his sister and niece. In addition, the Samhain story also loosely ties in Season of the Witch, with Michael being another form of the ancient evil that Cochran was putting in his masks. The 2018 version shows that Michael has targeted Laurie and will always pursue her, but I would prefer a simpler explanation as to why, otherwise at any point he can pull a Jason and just start killing everyone he sees like he did in Resurrection. Also, in 1978, the film was based on suspense and atmosphere and didn't require a high body count. 2018 followed a formula closer to Part 4 Return of Michael Myers. Enjoyable to be sure. And finally, the Zombie version was more like a Devils Reject and was far too profane to make it an actual remake. It would show how a dysfunctional family setting could create a serial killer, but not one of Michaels caliber. Cheers and game on, my friends
  8. People who leave the lobby before the match even starts or within 30 seconds of game start. Jason teamers or those who play Tommy and do nothing. I also get annoyed with players who lead Jason to me and then run off instead of helping me fight him off. Players who take the car after I died fixing it and then just joyriding around instead of escaping. And finally, the bad luck of spawning next to the fuse box and running into Jason before I've had a chance to do anything useful. But that one I chalk up to bad luck. Game on ,my friends
  9. They did bring Tommy Doyle back as a hero, played by Paul Rudd in his big screen debut in Part 6, Curse of Michael Myers. Although it wasn't the best film in the franchise, the formula involved with him being obsessed with Michael worked very well. So with that in mind, bringing the original Tommy Doyle back for the upcoming sequels where Laurie has an equally obsessed ally would be a great plot line. It's a pity there isn't any real way to introduce a new menacing villain in Halloween like the idea of the evil infecting another person like they teased at the end of Part 4. But since those entries are void for the Blumhouse sequels, I have nothing more to say about those. Cheers
  10. I agree. His traps are dangerous at first and his knives will slow you down, but the longer the match goes the better your chances of survival. Part 6 is a good starter, though
  11. I've said it before and I'll say it every time. Part 9 Jason is definitely my kryponite. As fearsome as Savini Jason is, and as powerful as Part 4 is, Part 9 is the most dangerous to me. I groan every time I see his bulbous, tumorous head lol. Ah, well. Game on, my friends
  12. Love the Halloween movies as much as Friday the 13th. A game similar to Friday the 13th centered around Halloween would be awesome. There are enough mask variations to play different Michael Myers and enough background settings. Game on, my friends
  13. When you think about it, that would be Jason's ideal scenario. Kill someone, put them in the machine, fix them up, and kill them again. He'd have an endless cycle of killing
