The Bratz of Crystal Lake

A short while back, I published a blog called "The Bratz of Haddonfield", which featured my daughter's dolls being terrorized by my Michael Myers figure. In honor of Friday the 13th, and the new film's release, I'm back at it again with that other silent stalker of the silver screen:

Hilarious, and just like the real thing. Is it just me or isn't the Final Girl in the Friday the 13th movies always so boring? Unlike Laurie in Halloween, they have close to no personality.

Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it!

Yeah, the Final Girl in F13 was rarely very engaging, probably due to the fact that the filmmakers were so desperately trying to copy the success of Halloween. They seemed to think that what made Laurie so popular was that she was virginal and repressed. Most of the slasher copycats never really grasped that this was just one aspect of her personality.

I LOVE the F13 films, but for completely different reasons than I love Halloween. F13 flicks are gloriously over-the-top, while the original Halloween is a subtle film that puts atmosphere above all. I hate to even compare them, but you almost have to when you take into account the fact that F13 only came about to give Paramount their own Halloween-esque franchise.

Thanks for reading! Glad to know someone enjoyed it!!!

Hey Gilly...this was hysterical! You did a bang up job with this my friend! I laughed! Really great work there!

But I have to tell you that Friday the 13th, (Pt. 2, I think) will always haunt me. I was a young teenager, about 12-13 maybe when we snuck into it at the movies. Well it was the first real horror/slasher flick I'd ever seen, and it scared the living daylights out of me.

That night, I stayed in my bed and would not move even a muscle for fear that someone was waiting in the darkness to murder me...ha! I laid awake for hours trying to muster the courage to run down the hall to my parents room. When I finally did, my heart was about to pound out of my chest. I've never been more terrified than that night. I slept at the foot of my parents bed for the rest of the night. They laughed the next morning and said I got what I deserved for sneaking into an R movie.

So to this day, I have never watched any of the other Friday 13th movies. And I've only watched the first Halloween. That stuff just scares me too bad...I have such an over active imagination. Or maybe it's paranoia...ha! I am such a light weight. I think Silence of the Lambs is my favorite gore movie, and that's just because I adored the ultra intelligent villian of Hannibal Lecter.
