This was decent. The snowy setting made for some good atmosphere. The titular villain was creepy at times, but also a little goofy at times. Robert Englund phoned it in and Lin Shaye played unhinged pretty well. I was surprised to see quite a bit of gore! Unfortunately the script was pretty weak. Some of the dialogue was cringe worthy. Other than that, I was entertained for the whole runtime.
If you say this film doesn't make your skin crawl, you're a fucking liar.
Top 3 slasher film without a doubt. It'll forever remain fresh every single time I watch it. Incredibly bleak, slow but never boring, and truly terrifying moments. With each viewing, different moments chill my bones.
This film is absolute perfection; the best in the series! There isn't one bad thing about it! Sure it isn't suspenseful at all, that was completely intentional. The director was making a pseudo-spoof on the genre, yet keeping it serious and straightforward. A new beginning, eh? Danny Steinmann is a genius! It's just too bad all of the Jason lovers out there had to cry like little pussies because they can't handle departure (Halloween 3 anyone?).
Part V is home…
