Watching: Friday the 13th Part VI – Jason Lives

Nothing can stop him, not even PAINTBALL!
Nothing can stop him, not even PAINTBALL!

I may have mentioned this last week, but I am just getting back to finishing the movie now.  I’ve seen it before and it made such an impression that I don’t remember a thing.  After watching people gush about it on a thread I decided to give it a chance again.  Jason makes me sad.

I’ve seen beautiful movies and terrible movies, but there is one thing that cannot be forgiven.  Friday the 13th: Jason Lives is boring.

    I would love to know what the best horror movie is that I have never seen. I have seen so many, but there are probably hidden gems out there I have missed.

    But I have to admit, slasher films have dominated for far too long in horror. They’re well played out by now. I still enjoy the classics, though.

      Cabin in the Woods is the best thing I have seen in the last couple of years, the Ginger Snaps trilogy is something very few people have seen and still accessible, Dead Snow is just simple and classic, Slither is unexpectedly hilarious, has Nathan Fillion and is a loving tribute to fifties monster movies, Depending on your tastes if you haven’t seen any Giallo then that could open up a new world for you. I’ll put out my second post on horror tomorrow night. A lot of the stuff I am writing about is accessible so you may have seen most of them, but I may throw in a couple of unusual titles. Stay away from anything Argento has done in the second half of his career.

      If you really want to get crazy there is always Mystics in Bali (The only movie I know that has a Penanggalan in it), Stacy Attack of the Schoolgirl Zombies (not what you would expect from the title, but very low budget), Tokyo Gore Police, Versus and the Zé do Caixão films. Then there is this treasure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IybUFPimw_I

      Aha – I haven’t seen Dead Snow yet. I should put that on the list.

      Or just watch it some night. It is October, after all!

      If Dead Snow is the only thing you haven’t seen on that list then you live a rich life.

      I haven’t seen Attack of the Schoolgirl Zombies. I probably need to watch House again at some point, too.

      House is great. Just watched that again two weeks ago.
