Really really good documentary, so many interesting anecdotes. Odd to think that Jason X is so badly thought of, I loved it & think it's pretty must the best of the later Friday 13th films, easily better than part 8 which is by far the worst in the series.
If I had to rank them I'd probably go;
VII, VI, I, IV, X, Freddy Vs Jason, II, Remake, IX, V, III, VIII
Agree with you on both counts, Jason X is great and VIII is by far the worst loads of pointless sex scene's and people you don't give a damn about who all got killed off very quickly... Did they KIll Jason at the end as I can't remember the film was that bad? As Megamixer said obviously an issue with rights for the last two films hence they where just called Jason takes Manhattan and Jason X and a different guy played 'Jason'..
Just curious was V originally an unrelated film with the Friday the 13th moniker stuck on to milk the Franchise.. Tommy the kid who killed Jason in IV is in a half way house whilst really unlikable scrutters are killed by an unseen killer whilst Tommy experiences hallucinations of Jason (in his regular hockey mask) but you don't actually see Jason till the last 10 minutes, when he puts the mask on which is in Tommy's room, goes from room to room quickly killing the kids and quickly gets offed by Pam (the Nurse) when she pushes him out of the loft windows onto the spikes.. When Pam takes Jason's mask off she says "He's not deformed under the mask"!! I wasn't even sure who he was until the cop said he was one of the Ambulance drivers at the beginning and the special needs kid who was killed was his son so he put Jason's mask on to pretend to be him..
The ending with Tommy wearing Jason's mask and I believe stabbing Pam hinted he was going to don the Mask for 6..
So correct me if I'm wrong with the list of Killers
I Mrs Vorhee's
II clu clux clan masked killer possibly Jason or his Mother
III Jason get's his iconic mask isn't killed and no kids survive
IV Jason but Tommy kills him at the end
V The Ambulance driver wearing Jason's Mask..
VI Jason as a un-killable Zombie when his grave gets struck by lightening whilst two grave robbers are robbing it.. No Tommy or any mention of him even though he dreams in V that Jason comes back this way..
VII can't remember much about this one wasn't it on a boat?
VIII so bad I blanked it; wasn't there a special knife that could kill him for good!
Jason takes Manhattan back alive no explanation
X that female robot kills Jason quite early on but that computer rebuilds him as Robotic version
Freddy vs Jason - Freddy comes to Jason in his dream as His mother Freddy as New Nightmare is omitted from the Nightmare on Elm Street box set and not considered canon
