QRE Halloween Horror Movie Countdown – Day 11

by Irky on October 21, 2012

Here’s our recommendation for Day 11:

Friday The 13th: Part 2‘Friday The 13th: Part II’

True fans of the horror genre know why we went straight to part 2 of the ‘Friday the 13th’ series. But for those of you who don’t know, here’s a little history lesson.

In ‘Friday the 13th’, the counselors at Camp Crystal Lake were doing all kinds of untoward things – drinking, having sex, doing drugs – while they should have been watching the kids. One of these kids was Jason Voorhees – he drowned while the counselors weren’t doing their job. One by one the counselors were being killed – but in part 1, it wasn’t Jason. It was his mother!

Jason actually starts his career in part 2. And before we see him with the hockey mask, he wears – ready for this? – a bag over his head. Which, if you ask us, had kind of a creepy quality all its own. ¬†With just one eye hole, he really is something we can’t understand.

Is he avenging the death of his mother? Probably. Is he avenging his own ‘death’? Sure, why not.

All we know is that Friday the 13th: Part 2 is our recommendation for today.
