We had a bit of trouble coming up with a topic for this one, so luckily a couple of weeks ago Jason Parker, webmaster of Fridaythe13thfranchise.com, published a post on the site called The Inglorious Send Off To Paramount's Friday The 13th Franchise, where he went through the major problems with it, so we're going to sort of use it as a guide for this discussion. On our Part 8 episode, we were all pretty divided, but we all sort of agreed that the ending was the most incredulous part of the film.

Listener Mail

  • Given Jason Parker's recent blog about Paramount's “Toxic Waste” send off in F13 Part VIII JTM, Where do you think the series would have gone after Jason's transformation to a child if Paramount had kept the rights?
  • Also, the Jason face melting scene…WTF?
