    Hoop-tober 3.0
    Other reviews: #1

    The 4th film in a rather disjointed series, Friday the 13th The Final Chapter was what a Halloween 2.5 would have been. The closing down of one chapter to open another that goes in a new direction. While Friday part 5 would suffer the same fate with fans as H3, part 4 has quite a bit going for it.

    Picking up the morning after part 3, it doesn’t really break any new ground, but it…

    Hoop-tober film #2


    Roger Spottiswoode's tight little 80's thriller features Jamie Lee Curtis, mid-horror-marathon, and a lovely small role for Oscar winner Ben Johnson.

    The last is the longest. It jumps around a bit, but covers a lot and moves along pretty quickly. Easily the best overall non film specific segments. Looking forward to marathoning all 3, soon.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Dear 1968:

    We made a film that has the following:

    -Female protagonist.
    -Whoops! Now an African-American protagonist.
    -It is in black & white.
    -It's all in one night! All in one one house!
    -We wait forever to even kind of tell you what's going on
    -People eat other people! You even get to see it!
    -Women die!
    -Kids die!
    -Kids kill their folks!
    -Brothers kill sisters!
    -Wait, everyone dies!
    -Whatever was happening has no conclusion!

    Please enjoy our film,

    George A.…
