Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives



I have no idea why Blogger makes these two different sizes all the time (though you can click to embiggen both of them). Science is a mystery to me!

Also, man...some of these were tough to draw all stick-i-fied (Nikki looks like a ghost, and Sheriff Garris looks like he's being intimate relationed to death or something). It's kind of interesting- though the deaths get more and more outrageous as the series progresses, they also become far less explicit, usually happening very quickly or off-screen altogether- the camera will cut to Jason as he's stabbing someone or the stabbing happens just out of frame. Yes. Kind of interesting indeed.

Ha. Touchy touchy death at the end.

I'd been looking forward to this installment to see how you'd handle Nikki's death. Nicely done.

Jason does look like after all the killin' he just needs a hug at the end there.

As for the deaths getting less explicit, I got two theories: either they were running on lower budgets and substituted creative kills for intricate, time-consuming and expensive gore effects; or some suit was mindful of the growing teen audience for the franchise and asked that they reduce the amount of on-camera gore out of some weird moral compromise. I lean toward the former theory.

For some reason, I'm really looking forward to Jason X.

If I must go, I pray I will go being intimate relationed to death. Preferably not by Jason, though.

They were getting less explicit because of the ever annoying MPAA..
