Ep. #111-Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan



This week, as the world goes to Hell in a handbasket, we return to a simpler time to tackle a guy who doesn’t seem all that bad nowadays: 1989’s FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN, directed by Rob Hedden. Jason is back, and this time, he’s headed to the Big Apple–although it takes him 65 friggin’ minutes to get there, and he spends all of 45 seconds in Times Square. Mostly he’s on a cruise ship/oil rig carving up bland teenagers, one of whom has visions of him as a child, and honestly, none of it makes sense. This is simultaneously the most ambitious and pretentious entry in the series, which are two words we never thought we would associate with Jason Voorhees, although a dude does get his head punched off at one point, which is pretty cool.


Ep. #50-Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning



This week, in honor of Friday the 13th, we take on the weirdest Jason flick in horror history: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART V: A NEW BEGINNING. As a group of troubled teens try to overcome a variety of issues ranging from sex addiction to homicidal tendencies to, uh, stuttering, a certain masked killer crashes the party. But is it really Jason? Or does someone have an..axe to grind? Somehow 1950’s Greasers, old enchiladas, robot dancing, bomb-threatening hillbillies, diarrhea, and masturbating homeless men all come into play, and we still haven’t even mentioned the dirty penis pants. What are those, you ask? You gotta listen to find out…
