  1. I'm into seeing this. It makes sense why everything Halloween (1978) is ignored so I'm curious to see where they're going to go with this. The fact John Carpenter is a good sign, maybe he wants to make sure this is good. His music is always great in his films.
  2. There's something I noticed when watching the slasher icons and their movies. Some of them had their origins explained in a different way around the 90's. I'm mostly looking at Freddy, Jason and Michael. With Freddy, it's revealed throughout the films why he was a killer and in Freddy's Dead shows the deal he made with dream demons to get his power. Jason seems to have a supernatural explanation in Jason goes to Hell. We never know about who his father was. With Michael Myers, parts 4-6 explain Michael being controlled by a cult using paganism in Haddonfield to slaughter his family. Does the explaining really make them more interesting or does it just demystify the characters?
  3. Shivers playthrough I'm not sure if anyone here has played the Shivers game from Sierra, but these were some scary games in terms of atmosphere.
  4. I don't know what to think about the upcoming Halloween film, it has the potential to be great or suck really bad. First with H20, the events of 4-6 never happened (it made sense considering the reception of those films) and Laurie killed him only to find out it was a fat paramedic whom Michael switched outfits last minute leading to Resurrection. Then it's a retelling with Rob Zombie's vision which was just ok to me. Now, it's 40 years after and everything after Halloween never happened. I can't tell which franchise has more re calibrations, the Halloween or Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. If this is going to have Michael dead for good, please don't do a Switcheroo cliche scene.
  5. I go with no but it depends on who's writing him. I remember in the Wildstorm comic "How I Spent my Summer Vacation", he does kill a bunch of children who pick on a kid with a facial deformity. He did try to in Jason Lives, but was stopped.
  6. I remembered reading "Squidward's Suicide", what a disturbing story.
  7. Honestly, I think No. Sure, he's an indestructible cyborg with nano-parts, but he's more of a machine than he is a undead man. I'm sure going into an atmosphere immolating would probably roast the nano-bots and his body along with Brodski. The mask was just left over in the lake. He's dead and is just dust in the sky, end of story. Unless you read the Jason X comics from Avatar Press along with Jason vs Jason X for an extra weird story.
  8. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers: The surgery room massacre, that gave me nightmares for years. The lights flash and you see shadows of doctors and nurses getting cut by Michael, that kind of brutality you didn't see in Halloween films until Rob Zombie's Halloween films.
  9. Well, that sucks. I enjoyed the series for the fact Ash came back after so long, however I've been busy so I'm stuck on Season 2. It was good to see Bruce Campbell back as Ash since almost 25 years after Army of Darkness. It was cancelled mostly to low audience numbers, guess there wasn't enough viewers to see old school horror in the zombie era.
  10. The weird thing is I saw Jason Lives back in 1997 and I actually remember seeing a part where Tommy asks the Sheriff why Jason wasn't cremated and he responds with "Because someone paid a lot of money to make sure him and his mother were given a decent burial!". Not sure if it's a false memory or the Mandela effect.
  11. I wanted to ask someone here about a deleted scene from Part 6. I saw it a long time ago, but I remember in the VHS that I rented there was a scene where Tommy asks the Sheriff why Jason wasn't cremated and he responds with someone paying a lot of money to make sure him and Pamela were given a decent burial. I learned later that it was a deleted scene, but I didn't see it in the Special Edition for Part 6. Has anyone ever seen this scene before?
  12. No. Jason isn't a Deadite, it was implied that he was by Ash in the Freddy vs Jason vs Ash comic. In the DVD commentary for Jason goes to Hell, Adam Marcus said the dagger and Necronomicon were just gags.
  13. It was a weird comic to read. The Avatar Press comics for Friday the 13th got away with a lot of gore (Funny considering the Friday films were hacked in terms of gory content by the MPAA). I view it as a "What if?" story like the Marvel "What If" stories because Uber Jason got burned to nothing from that immolation.
  14. I remember all the quotes he said in Blood 2, thanks for the reminder! I just some company would pick up the rights like Bethseda and make Blood awesome like they did with Doom. Or maybe a Blood 3, but that would too optimistic.
  15. This was the First Person Shooter for the fans of horror films, so many easter eggs and references with a dark and humorous main character. There are other references to other horror films too in the game. Freddy's hat and sweater are in a charnel house The name of the funeral home in the level you're playing is from Phantasm Killer Hands from Evil Dead 2 are an enemy And a lot more! Blood 2 was ok, but it went too much into the realm of science fiction and less horror, but the Bone Leeches were annoying!
  16. I recently installed Friday the 13th back on Steam and started to play Offline Mode and finished the Virutal Cabin. I also got Grand Theft Auto 4 for Xbox One and Xbox 360 and Postal 2 on Steam.
  17. You can have an ending where it has Johnny, Jason and Freddy playing Football until Freddy falls and hits himself with his claws and he has to rest.
  18. The wasted potential for Part 7 was if I recall correctly, part 7 was supposed to be Freddy vs Jason but New Line and Paramount couldn't come to an agreement. It would've been cool to see Robert and Kane in their primes playing Freddy and Jason but you can't always get what you want. Part 7, to me at least, is probably one of the darkest Friday films in terms of tone and music. Just the theme after the Crazy Ralph intro is very powerful. The chorus when Tina would use her powers is creepy as well. With Part 9, I think it was a result of treading new territory along with slasher fatigue at the movies at the time. You have to look at it from the filmmakers' perspective. You have a character that has been killed, resurrected and taken to Manhattan because part 6, you had to do new things to keep the series afloat or being accused of doing nothing new. It's a no-win scenario. It's also a product of it's time too. It's also a nod to various horror films when you had the dagger and Necronomicon from Evil Dead 2, the crate from Creepshow, the jungle gym from the last fight is from the Birds and of course Freddy's glove taking Jason's mask to hell. Adam Marcus said those things were gags. In the commentary for Jason goes to Hell, he said at the scene with Freddy's glove they never intended to have it set up for Freddy vs Jason, it was just a gag.
  19. Here's something that would piss off some fans: I didn't have a problem with Jason being afraid of water in the fight with Freddy in the Dream World for Freddy vs Jason. It makes sense since he's in Freddy world, the water reminds him of drowning even though he's never had an issue being in water when he was human and undead.
  20. I can think of a quote from The Room used in the crossover film "Oh hi Jason!" when Johnny sees Jason hacking some campers. Instead of killing himself, Johnny runs away to Crystal Lake around the time of Freddy vs Jason to get away from it all. He somewhat connects with Jason and helps him kill stupid teenagers. "I did not hack her!"
  21. I too liked Halloween III mostly because I realized after reading reviews and thinking about it, I just viewed it for what was Carpenter's plan for Halloween: A anthology series with a different story for each sequel. It's got a great soundtrack and it does have John Carpenter's influence. Plus, it tackled other things like the commentary of commercialization of Halloween and the death of children in horror films. The ending still creeps me out to this day. I like Halloween 4-6 more than H20 and Resurrection mostly because Part 6 was my first exposure to the series. Michael was so damn brutal in the Theatrical Cut but is just like what he was in the first one in the Producer's Cut. The 1989 version of Phantom of the Opera with Robert Englund isn't that bad, it mostly got trashed because it was released around the time the musical came out. I got past the opera parts in England when it's set in France in the story. Erik in this version is closer to that of the Phantom in the original story (which I read not too long ago) in being a killer. I enjoy Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow more than I do the story of Sleepy Hollow from Washington Irving.
  22. You read my mind OP, it's pretty much what I thought about Savini Jason. I missed my chance, but looking back the pitchfork doesn't look like it would be a good weapon from the gameplay I've seen. The design of a Jason reborn from Hell is pretty awesome, it's nice to see Tom Savini back in action.
  23. Fair enough for Resurrection, I just though H20 ended the series perfectly and the switcheroo from Resurrection just copied off the ending from the Producer's Cut of Part 6. I can see how you couldn't watch Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 with the swearing. It didn't look appealing to me and I thought the ending was just fine because I thought Rob was trying to make more Michael more realistic and less supernatural
  24. The fondest memories I had of gaming was in the golden age of Adventure games. I didn't have consoles growing up so I played a lot of adventure games especially from Sierra On-Line and Lucasarts. The peak of Sierra games for me was King's Quest VI and I beat it a few years ago after not being able to do it decades ago. Lucasarts, I was a fan of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones games. I got to play their version of Sam and Max not too long ago and it was great. Sierra was notorious for their games having unwinnable situations, creative deaths and sarcastic narrators telling you screwed up while Lucasarts tried not to do that and even made of it a few times in their manuals. There's also the Mortal Kombat series which I still play from time to time from all of the eras from the 2D, 3D and HD eras.
