It’s amazing the effect that the passage of time has. It was hard to find a series that had a cheaper and nastier reputation than the Friday the 13th films back when they were first released. Now, in the wake of the slick postmodernism of Scream and its ilk, these slashers seem oddly quaint and innocent. Watching one is an exercise in Generation X nostalgia, and not at all an unpleasant one at that.
If you really don’t know what happens in a Friday the 13th flick, then you should be reading a different review. But for those of you who tuned in late, Tommy, who killed Jason at the end of Part IV, is now a seriously disturbed young man.
