  1. *gulp* M’kay.

  2. Seriously. Nancy is not shitting you. I’ve seen what happens when people go to sleep in this movie.

  3. Yes indeed. This is surely the key phrase from this film and franchise, and therefore iconic in the annals of horror cinema. I was never a big fan of these films, though the first one does have it’s moments.

    But this franchise has always been a huge hit in my house right down to the action figures that my son Danny has in gleeful abaundance. I’ll admit these films are far more accomplished than their “Jason Voorhees” counterparts. Any discussion of contemporary horror must include at least the first two.

  4. There was only one of the sequels I liked, but I don’t remember which one it was.

    This one was huge right in my teen years so I have a soft spot for it even though it seems kind of silly now.

  5. “But this franchise has always been a huge hit in my house right down to the action figures that my son Danny has in gleeful abundance”.

    Watch that Danny closely, Sam. Keep him away from the family cat.

  6. LOL!!!!! You got that right sartre! We have four cats in this house no less!
