I love slasher films – Halloween, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Prowler, My Bloody Valentine – all that shit. But my favourite ones are the fucking Friday The 13th series (the ones that are 18s anyway). Jason Voorhees is a big old legend and I like him very much. He shunts around with a hench machete and dashes bare teenagers with it. Normally because they’ve had sex or smoked weed or something – gutted! Literally.
Obviously, we all know by now that he’s not even the killer in the first film, but after the second film, he gets his act together and starts merking on the regs (although without his trademark hockey mask – he gets that in Part III). Now, I have seen the second and third entries in this series, but if you take a trip down BBFC Lane, then you’ll notice that they are both classified as 15s. When I watched them they were 18s, so it was ok, BUT OBVIOUSLY I’LL NEVER LOOK AT THEM AGAIN WITH A TEN FOOT EYEBALL. Check it out… »
