Friday the 13th Special Part II

Randy is once again joined by guest Paul H. Harder III to share campfire tales of tawdry teens and hockey masked homicidal maniacs. This time our happy campers explore the “Tommy Jarvis trilogy” of Friday the 13th Parts 4, 5, and 6.

While the Jason franchise didn’t deviate as far as the Halloween series when it tried to go in a new direction, it did backtrack just as fast. We somehow start with The Final Chapter before kicking ol’ Jason to the curb with The New Beginning only to begin yet again with Jason Lives. Enjoy!
