Okay, okay...I know what you're thinking: He's lost his mind. Hey, I had a freaking blast with this and if you want some more arguments to back up this selection, let me tell you this - THIS should have had the popularity that Friday the 13th did, as it's a better, more fun movie and even makes more sense within the realm of the movie itself. It's the same formula as Friday the 13th - kid comes back for revenge, picking off his scantily clad victims, one by one. It's a ton of fun, the kills are more gruesome and if nothing else, you'll at least have a little fun making fun of it. One of the better slasher films I've seen, period.

RATING: 7.5/10  Hey, I even like the mask in this one better, as I'll take a jester over a hockey player any day. If anyone's even still reading this blog, I have a feeling I'm going to get crucified for this choice. I'm proud of the choice, however, as I believe it gives my list a little character and honestly, I really enjoyed this - as much of a guilty pleasure as it may be.
