Time for another round for Honest Horror Movie Posters! Today we’re focusing on the Fridaythe13thFranchise. This is by far my favorite horror franchise, so it was pretty fun. And in all honesty, the original tagline were pretty decent (e.g. Jason X: Evil Gets an Upgrade). But that is not the name of the game. The name of the game is Honest Movie Posters: Friday the 13th Edition. Let’s get to it.
Friday the 13th (1980)
Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982)
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning (1985)
Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives (1986)
Friday the 13th Part 7: New Blood (1988)
Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)Jason Goes to Hell (1993)
The Final Chapter opens with a montage that tells the audience about the killings of the previous 3 movies, regardless that certain deaths were not all committed by Jason. This is probably why that bitch Casey got the question wrong and ended up killing Steve (I’m talking about 1996 Scream). Anyways, The Final Chapter has a lot to offer in this installment, aside from the fact that it is by far not the final chapter in the Jason franchise. But the mash up of the previous deaths is much better than replaying the last 10-15 minutes of the previous film. Continue reading →
I always found Friday the 13th Part 3 to be a fun installment of the series, but obviously not the best. Like many of the “Part 3s” of the horror genre in the 80s it was filmed in 3D. Not that 3D glasses would help in watching my Friday’s through a box set, but it does serve for some really cheesy moments in the film you know were supposed to be in 3D. None of which are scary, just a bloated cheesefest of an already tired trope. Even the music that plays during the tired 3D opening credits has gotten cheesier. It becomes this crazy, almost techno type of music being played over parts of Friday’s original score. Continue reading →
Yo dawgs, you heard I liked the Friday the 13th movies so I wrote some more Friday.
LOL, JUST KIDDING.
I just finished Part 2 of the Friday Franchise and there is a copious amount of interesting things that was presented while watching this film for the (insert # here) time. Between the original and Part 2, Part 2 has always been better to me even though Part 1 scores better on rotten tomatoes. I’m not sure why it has a worse score. Part 2 has a better cast, slightly more creative kills, the same piercing soundtrack, utilizes “Killer POV” more often, a more insightful plot, clever lines, and is much more crucial to the rest of the franchise.

A long long time ago, I was a young little thing around the age of 10 or 12 and found myself fascinated with the supernatural, including the lore around Friday the 13th. This lead to a young girl eventually marathoning rater R Horror flicks right around October of 2011, about two years before she got to see her first Jason film in theaters, Freddy vs. Jason.
So here’s the plan, like I do near every Friday the 13th, I will be marathoning the Franchise. 12 movies in 12 days with 12 reviews. This includes posts on the 8 originals, 3 spin-offs, 1 remake, and at the end a drinking game.
