I love the sets for franchises. They usually provide really good value, and they also help with my OCD in that I'm usually getting the entire series. At the very least, it makes it easier to hunt down what's missing (like Freddy Vs Jason, in this instance).

We're just finishing up another Child's Play watch through... just the last two movies to go. That boxed set was a killer deal and we've probably watched it four times now since picking it up.

We also found the Paranormal Activity set at Walmart a couple weeks ago for $20. 6 movies for $20 on blu-ray. We are halfway through that one now.

Is this where I post this?    

So there are a ton of horror movies coming out this year:  The Grudge Underwater The Turning Gretel & Hansel Fantasy Island Brahms: The Boy 2 The Lo

It follows really is fantastic. I went in hearing nothing about it and was completely blown away.

Damn - I didn't know that there were 6 Paranormal Activity movies. I only have the first five, and somehow completely missed "The Ghost Dimension". I'll have to pick that one up!

If it's this one...

https://www.amazon.ca/Nightmare-Elm-Street-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B0093I2SN2/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2M3EHRQJDOQLS&dchild=1&keywords=nightmare+on+elm+street+collection&qid=1602709132&sprefix=nightmare+on+elm+%2Caps%2C169&sr=8-1

Then it's the same one I have. It's not a bad set, the films all look good. Wish it came with Freddy Vs. Jason, but I guess that's OK.

I bought this last year around this time, still haven't watched it yet because I'm terrible about watching movies.

Would like to get the Friday the 13th Equivalent soon.

https://www.amazon.com/FRIDAY-13TH-ULTIMATE-DVD-COLLECTION/dp/B00UGPDMAY

I scored this one on Amazon for around $13 a couple months back. Currently watching them in order each morning when I get home from work. 

Spoiler

Part 1 was as good as I remembered. Part two was an alright follow up, but I think the remake did a much better job of cleaning up the backstory of Jason. Jason is also so much more cumbersome and clumsy than I ever remembered. Some of the fight scenes are almost borderline slapstick with him falling over and taking an ass kicking from some of the victims before getting the kill. 

Part 3 was so full of hokey 3-D cinematography that it was almost hard to take seriously (the juggling and yo-yo scenes were downright laughable.) It also toyed with the idea that Jason attempted to rape Chris in the flashbacks, which is just a weird/unnecessary place to go. They also have Jason's look being completely bald in the flashback, yet he had long red hair when unmasked in Part 2. He's also bald in Part 3. It's just all over the place. Then there is the jump scare at the end with Mrs Voorhees coming out of the water in a callback to Part 1 - but Chris didn't even know the story of Jason, let alone Mrs. Voorhees!

Part four I felt was the best of the bunch. Part 5 was complete trash. I'm moving on to Jason Lives next, which if memory serves me right, was the film I liked the most in the entire series.

Oddly enough its probably the really bad ones I remember most fondly. The 5th one is probably the first one I remember seeing and enjoying. I bet watching it now I'd say why it was bad. I think also I didn't understand it at all, the one guy just sorta loses it and chops up the dude with an axe. Just a weird aside in a movie that already features a brutal killer.

And also I remember liking Jason Goes to Manhattan, not sure if it would hold up the same to me, but it seems utterly ridiculous. 

And of course Jason Goes to Hell. I saw that not long afted it hit movie rental stores and even as a kid I knew it absurd.

For me, Jason Goes to Hell kind of depends on my mood. Sometimes I quite enjoy it, but other times I just want choke the life out of whoever decided to get weird with the shit in that one. I'm not a really big fan of the idea of him being able to move from person to person.

Manhattan is one of my favorites, and Jason X is definitely a guilty pleasure movie. I might have to do another watch through of the Friday series soon.

On a different note... Hubie Halloween was actually pretty enjoyable. I never would have watched it if my wife didn't ask, but it was considerably better than I had anticipated it would be.

And we watched Rabid last night. Jen and Sylvia Soska are easily up there with my favorite horror directors. There was some really cool body horror stuff, and it was well acted. Plus, it's always great seeing CM Punk in horror. If I hadn't mentioned it before, his other movie, the Girl on the Third Floor, was pretty fucking good. He's a good leading man, and the horror genre fits him well. Hopefully he keeps working in film.
