1) Friday the 13th - 7/10 - Here's where all the mayhem begins. Camp Crystal Lake gets written into the horror books, and the murder of camp counselors begins. While Jason is not the original killer, it's still a classic, and is one of the most successful of the series.
2) Friday the 13th Part II - 7/10 - Finally we get some Jason action in here. Murders contine at Camp Crystal Lake, with a fantastic ending. A pretty solid sequel, with more of the same.
3) Friday the 13th Part III - 8/10 - Jason dons his trademark hockey mask for some great slaying. Kids make a getaway to Camp Crystal Lake only to find the manical killer waiting for them.
4) Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter - 10/10 - While not really the final chapter of the series, its arguably the best film. Don't want to spoil this one for you, so I'll shut up.
5) Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning - 5/10 - I like this film more than most reviewers do, but its still probably the weakest in the series next to Part VIII. The film has an unexpected turn, which you'll have to watch to find out. You'll then know why this film doesn't quite live up to its breathren.Read more ›
We want to see the REAL movies, the movies the directors intended...Not films that are cut to bits. The extras on this set try to make up for this, which is nice, but this is not what we (the fans) have been waiting for.
It's great that this is finally out there, but I cannot give full marks to this set as it is fatally flawed. Paramount missed out on a chance to release something truly special.
"Paramount" finally smartens the hell up and re-releases the first eight "Friday" films, together for the first time, in one big box set, reigniting the saga of Jason Voorhees, the mama's boy with the hockey mask fetish.
The good - all eight films together, 2 installments per disc with audio commentary on III, IV, VI,& VII. A fifth disc with a feature length documentary on the history of the franchise, a "where are they now?" style featurette on the victims from each film, a look at the props from the films, trailers, etc. The special features are what will probablly make me buy this.
The bad - deleted scenes? They will probablly be included but won't be the stuff fans have been craving for. Dolby Digital? Sure, 2.0 DD or surround, at best. If there are 2 films per disc, I hope "Paramount" doesn't go on the cheap and put one film on each side of the disc making the viewer flip the disc over to watch the other movie (flipper discs, suck big time!). Dual layered discs are the way to go.
As for the films themselves... "I" through "IV" with "Jason Lives" are a must view. "The New Blood" is o.k. (the action scenes between Jason and Tina were cool. The rest you can skip). As for "V" & "Jason Takes Manhatten"? Well, sometimes dead is better.
Friday The 13th-This is a good film that started the whole series. Though it may not be as good as alot of the sequels, it still provides the thrills we want. And remember, this was just the entry in the series that entroduced the series.
7/10 Rated R for Nudity, Mild Language and Strong Violence
Friday The 13th Part 2-This is where the series really started to get heated. It is gorier, scarier and creepier then the original. Although this is censored at some parts, it is still one of the best in the series.
8/10 Rated R for Nudity, Language and Gore.
Friday The 13th Part 3-This is the second best of the series. It was where it started to get a little more uncensored. The cast is ok, but the kills are very creative. I really like the kill where Jason shoots the arrow and it goes into a girls eye, and she falls into the lake. But what makes this movie a gem, is that Jason gets his mask.
9/10 Rated R for Strong Violence, Nudity, Strong Language and Gore.
Friday The 13th Part 4:The Final Chapter-The final chapter? Ya right. There was still 7 more sequels after this movie. But don't let the lying name make you think it's not a good movie, because it's AWSOME! The best of the series. It has the most gore and scares. Plus it has Corey Feldman and Crispen Glover. Yes!
10/10 Rated R for Brief Nudity, Language and Strong Gore.Read more ›
