Master of Scaremonies Rudy 0:25
my favorite day. Friday the 13th.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 0:30
That's right. For those of you who don't know, Jason Vorhees is masters favorite horror character of all time. So today is the perfect day for our season two finale, and we will also be wrapping up the season with a very special Fables from our Familiar, so let's jump into horror trivia.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 0:50
What day does Tree have to relive over and over in the 2017 movie Happy Death Day?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 0:59
I have never seen it but I'm going to guess birthday.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:03
That is correct.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:05
What kind of name is Tree and how do you spell Tree?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:08
T R E E
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:09
That's what it says on the card. That's a weird name. Maybe I'm just I don't know.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:14
I have a feeling it's a nickname or like an abbreviation.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:17
Maybe it's Trey. No, right?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:21
No, I don't think so.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:23
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:24
Every time you tell me to spell something. I don't trust you anymore. Because of the one time You made me do the eyes trick. Man. I just gave it away. Okay, so one time. I don't know if you guys have seen this viral video going around where somebody tells you to say to spell? Yes.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:41
The thing is, I told her. um spell. Yes. And she says Y E S and then I said, What is E Y E S? And she's like, E yes. like spell? Yes. She's like, okay, Y E S and I'm like, What is E Y E S? She's like,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 2:02
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 2:03
Ellas. And then and I think at some point I wrote it out and she's like, busting out laughing because it spells eyes.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 2:11
I don't know how the trick works, but it worked. And my mexa came out because I'm like, Ellas? That's not how you spell ellas is a spanish word?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 2:21
I think they also did that to Katy Perry too.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 2:25
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 2:26
And I think she said ellas too.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 2:29
Well, and that is a story of why I never just Rudy when he asked me to spell something because I feel like he's setting me up for a punch line. Okay. Be afraid be very afraid. Name the movie.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 2:43
I'm gonna take a stab at here. It sounds familiar, but I'm gonna say I don't know. I really don't know what it is.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 2:53
Finally, The Fly.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 2:56
Oh yeah, The Fly. That's but that's a really? I don't know. I haven't seen in a long time. But it's kind of it's kind of I know it's gross. For sure. But I don't I just don't remember that line.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 3:10
Well, that line is like iconic but I don't even know what it is, The Fly.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 3:14
I've you know what I've seen it parried, parotied.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 3:17
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 3:19
Parodied a bunch of times. So, I mean, I did start remember that it's been a long time since I've seen The Fly. It is a classic.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 3:27
Well, it is going on the list the very long list. Okay, let's get into some haunted housekeeping. Today's is a little long, so bear with me. I'm not gonna have a podcast here with you guys for what two weeks so I got to make the most of it.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 3:44

Ghost Hostess Mandy 3:46

Jason Vorhees?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 6:05
Ever since we did that one episode talking about Friday the 13th. I am all set to go.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 6:12
I know you're already asking us what we're doing the next one.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 6:15
Yes, yes, yes.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 6:17
All right. So I'm assuming most of you are not new here. But if you are, you might want to hit pause now and go back and listen to season one, Episode Five. When we talked about Friday the 13th part one through four. We will be giving a short little recap shortly. short, short short. But today we are diving into parts five through eight. But before we do the recap, do you want to share with everyone about why you do not qualify for a Spookmas and Christmas double gift Rudy?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 6:50
I'm not sure I agree with that. But for my birthday,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 6:55
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 6:57
No for my birthday, which was in October. I got the box set of Friday the 13th which has the first one all the way to the remake that came out in I think it was 2008 or 2002 to one of the two. But I got that recently.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 7:17
Why are you downplaying it?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 7:19
I'm not downplaying it. I remember I saw it on on Instagram and I of course, I sent it to your DMs I slid it in there. And I was like check this out. This would be a great thing to shoot for photos.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 7:33
Where are those photos?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 7:35
I took them? I took them today.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 7:39
But we did talk about it on another episode for Halloween news. Yeah, we did a hefty little price.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 7:45
It was it was hefty. I didn't I really didn't expect that to get it because we had spent so much on a lot of Halloween stuff. And I was like you know what? I'm okay with waiting. I've seen the movies. Like I don't need it. But inside I was dying a little bit.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 8:01
I know and I know you so well. And of course this has been an ongoing theme this year. I pre ordered it for him and it was still delayed so every freaking Halloween influencer and account was posted there Jason or they're Friday the 13th collections and Rudy was like I'm low key kind of really sad that I didn't get it. And in my head I saw I was just like, Yeah, I know it sucks, but we had other things we had to spend on. And in my head. I'm like, Oh my God, he's gonna be so surprised when this finally comes in.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 8:36
I was pleasantly surprised because because he told me Oh, yeah, you got something for your I got you something for your birthday. And I was like, okay, and I saw it. I didn't know what it was. And I was like, this is a big box. I wonder what it is. And then I pulled it out and I was like, jumping up and down for joy.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 8:53
So I'm kind of curious because you are a Friday the 13th fanatic and you are a film expert, kind of I know you don't like it that I'm gonna say that but
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 9:07
Film buff. I think they call it?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 9:09
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 9:10
Ghost Hostess Mandy 9:11
Um, so what is your review of the box set for the price that it cost? I'm gonna throw out there too, that it's all of the movies remastered?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 9:22
Yeah, they are.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 9:23
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 9:24
Yeah, they're remastered I haven't really read too much into it. I'm assuming that they got like prints and remastered them. They looked really good but I'm not 100% sure if they're like 4k remastered or whatever because you have to like scan like an old print and then like go frame by frame and clean each one of them. You know, that's what they usually do. I'm not 100% if they did that, but you know it still looks really good.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 9:51
It looks good in your opinion.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 9:52
In my opinion. I liked it. Um, on top of that, it has like a bunch of special features like tons. I want to say hours it said hours on the box. I don't know how many hours but a lot of special features, an extra footage, I haven't had a chance to go through all of it. Because we're just watching the movies right now just trying to like, refresh ourselves with it and
Ghost Hostess Mandy 9:52
Well, its my first time so.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 10:14
Your first time too. So like I saw, I think we saw this. I don't want to give it away too much. But we saw like, Jason takes Manhattan. And when I saw it as a kid, I was like, Oh, my God is amazing. But then I saw it as an adult. I'm like, well, this seems a little bit different to me. But one of the things that do appreciate of it is the packaging. Like the artwork is amazing. That's around the box. It's really cool. I don't know who the artist is. But he did a fantastic job.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 10:43
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 10:45
Or she. Whoever did the artwork did a great job.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 10:48
Yes. And I'll add in we talked about this in one of our episodes, I don't know which one at this point. But each disk or each movie has its own cover. And then each cover has a double sided printed cover, I guess so you could take it out and flip it and there's two options for the artwork you want to use. That would be a really cool post series, babe.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 11:12
Yeah. Yeah, it's the sleeve that you pull out like each. Each sleeve has its own artwork on both sides.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 11:19
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 11:19
Ghost Hostess Mandy 11:21
For sure. So you think it was a good deal? A good deal?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 11:25
I think it was a fantastic deal. It's one of the best better collection or collection pieces I have, I think
Ghost Hostess Mandy 11:33
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 11:35
Ghost Hostess Mandy 11:38
Alright, well, since I have terrible memory, and you are the expert Do you want to give everyone a recap? A brief quick little recap of what happened in Friday the 13th parts one through four.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 11:53
So Friday, the 13th one through four, um, some of them have more names attached to them. But in the first one, it involves this camp called Camp Crystal Lake. And at Camp Crystal Lake, there was an accident where this little boy drowned in in the lake, where the counselor should have been taking care of him, but they didn't force know the counselors got in trouble. And I think like a year later, a couple of years later, someone started attacking the counselors at that camp. And they started just like getting knocked off one by one. At the end of it. There's one girl left. And she's trying to figure out what the hell's going on. And try to escape. I don't know why. But I have a feeling like the whole concept of the final girl is from Friday the 13th.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 12:53
It might be.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 12:54
I'm not sure cuz we also had I think Texas change. Oh, you know what Texas Chainsaw Massacre came up before, I think
Ghost Hostess Mandy 13:00
I think I have read it was Texas Chainsaw.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 13:03
And they have a final girl in that one. She does survive. Anyways,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 13:07
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 13:08
Come on. Movie came out like almost 40 years ago. But it turns out there at the end of the movie, um, this lady come she's like, what's going on? Young lady? Is everything okay? And she's like, no, my friends got killed. Oh, my God. Let me let me see. So this older lady comes in and she looks at all the bodies. She's like, Oh my god, I'm so sorry. But they probably had it easier than my, my son had it. And and then the older lady turns out to be Mrs. Vorhees. Jason's mother. And she explains Oh, yeah, my son died years ago, years ago, and nobody at this camp, you know give a shit. So I'm gonna take my revenge out in this camp. So she runs after the "final girl". And she gets she ends up in like this battle at the end and gets her head chopped off. What that girl didn't know was that Jason was alive. And watched this girl murder. Her mom,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 14:11
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 14:12
His mom in self defense, I guess. Yeah, in self defense. So that sets up the whole thing. In the second movie, that same girl she's killed at the beginning of the movie right away.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 14:25
Oh, yeah, I remember that was a good scene.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 14:27
It was a really good scene. I didn't really when I first saw it. I didn't really anticipate that. And then you know, he wreaks havoc again at the camp. And like people try to like, are always trying to revitalize this camp. Never like learning from the first mistake,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 14:43
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 14:44
Um, but this time, it's Jason actually killing all the camp counselors. But the interesting thing about this throughout the whole movie, you don't see him in his iconic hockey mask. He's wearing like a sack on his head.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 15:01
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 15:02
At the end of the movie, I think there's two survivors. And one of them is a girl and the other is a guy and the girl ends up like, like digging a machete into his arm or something or shoulder. And then that's it, like they leave. And then we have the third one. And in the third one, there's no like, Camp Crystal Lake camp. But there is a, like a group of kids around the same area, and they talk about Camp Crystal Lake or whatever. Um, there's a character, his name is Shelly,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 15:37
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 15:38
The guy that sets up the whole mythos of the hockey mask of Friday the 13th. And there's a group of kids, and Shelley is kind of like outcasts, and the only way he can, like, develop like social, like conversations with people is to like scare them.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 15:59
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 16:01
So he has like a bunch of like monster masks and like blood and stuff. He's always like tricking people and scaring them. But he also has a hockey mask. And that's the hockey mask that Jason uses, like, for the rest of like, his career.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 16:16
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 16:17
And he ends up like killing Shelly and a bunch of other people. But he I think there's one part where he uses a bow and arrow, which was badass. But at the end, he gets he gets tricked into like, getting hung by the final girl.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 16:33
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 16:34
And then like he dies, but then
Ghost Hostess Mandy 16:36
in the farm, right? The barn
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 16:38
Barn, the barn scene. So then after that, I'm getting like winded talkikng about this.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 16:46
Now you know how I always feel.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 16:48
So then we have which ones this one? This is Part Four. The next one, right?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 16:52
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 16:53
Which one's part four called? Let's see, part. Four, I think is the Final Chapter. Supposedly, in the Final Chapter. Oh, one thing I forgot to mention. The one with Shelly part three. It's 3D. And it's the one with the weird music.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 17:16
Oh, yes. The crazy music.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 17:17
Crazy music of but when we go to a final chapter, the music comes back to being normal. In Part Four, I think there's another kid in that one, right? That's the one with the kid. Right?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 17:33
That kid that makes masks Tommy.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 17:35
So yeah, so it's kind of the same. But there's a family involved this time. And there's a kid Tommy and his sister that are in a camp, or by Camp Crystal Lake, but there's also like a group of teens that are nearby. And they're always like partying and stuff like that. And then like the teen girl that's with the family. She kind of like starts mingling with them.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 17:59
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 18:01
But then Jason shows up again. No, he doesn't show up. He actually comes back to life at a hospital, kills a bunch of people at the hospital and then makes his way back to the camp. And at the camp, he starts killing people there. And then at the there's a kid, which is played by Corey Feldman.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 18:25
Oh, yeah, I forgot that, that's who it is.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 18:27
And he, he likes like, special effects, makeup and all this stuff. And he at some point, at the end of the movie tricks Jason to thinking that he is himself as a small kid.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 18:39
He shaves his head.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 18:40
he shaves his head. He does like a quick little makeup. He's like, Jason, you're free. Like, I'm you like, it's gonna be okay. But then he ends up, like, killing Jason with his own machete. Um, so then then that happens. And then like it moves on. And the next movie part.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 18:59
Hey slow down.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 19:00
Ghost Hostess Mandy 19:01
That's where we're at.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 19:02
In Part Five? Sorry, I was just getting a little bit too ahead of myself. I was very excited. But yeah, like part five or final chapter is interesting, too, because there's another person in there. Crispin Glover, he's in that one, too. And he is actually he also plays Marty's father in the Back to the Future movie.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 19:27
Oh, that's right. That's right.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 19:29
And it's funny, because in Back to the Future, I kind of feel like he's in all three, but he's only in one Back to the Future.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 19:36
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 19:37
Yeah. Like he plays the dad in the first one. And then he does show up in the second one, but it's, you know, footage from the first one. And then he's like, supposed to be an old version of themselves, but that's not Crispin Glover at some other actor.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 19:51
That's interesting. Yeah. I wouldn't have ever known that.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 19:54
But yeah, Crispin Glover is in there. Oh, yeah. Kevin Bacon is in the first one. I forgot. Yes, he gets offed in a very hardcore way too
Ghost Hostess Mandy 20:05
During a sexual scene.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 20:07
Yeah, he gets stabbed through the throat with an arrow.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 20:12
Oh, is that I don't know how you remember each kill. But that makes sense. I remember
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 20:16
I just remember that because it's so like,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 20:18
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 20:19
Kevin Bacon's very hardcore. But yeah, those are that's my recap. It's all over the place, but that's what I can remember.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 20:26
It's better than I would have done I kept asking really before Are you sure you're gonna remember the recap? Are you sure you got it? Have you written notes in here, he got it all his Friday 13th knowledge.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 20:35
I stumbled a little bit towards the finish line. But I got there, I had to dive to it. Have you seen that video of that guy that's running a race and he's tripping and the only way he can win is just throws but that's how I was with this recap. I'm like, I'm just going for a diving for it, and I'm gonna I'm gonna get it somehow. But we should be fine.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 20:58
Okay, so we have learned a thing or two since our last round of this in season one. So I'm gonna do things the right way this time. And I apologize for the lack of information last time around. So Friday the 13th part five is called A New Beginning it was released in 1985 and I really love the convenience of conceding to IMDB summaries last episode so here is Matt282's summary of the movie.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 21:28
That's what I should have done just read all those summaries
Ghost Hostess Mandy 21:32
Well, but I in in your defense, yours was better because you gave like an actual like this is what happened
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 21:39
Ghost Hostess Mandy 21:39
These are like brief overviews like Okay, so, five years after killing the goalie hockey mask killer Jason Vorhees, Tommy Jarvis, who is the kid Rudy just talked about, has grown up in various mental hospitals unable to get over the nightmares about Jason's return when Tommy is sent to a rural halfway house in New Jersey for mentally disturbed teenagers. A series of grisly murders begin a new as another hockey masked killer begins killing off all people at and around the residence. Has Jason returned from the dead to restart his killing spree, or has Tommy decided to take over the reign of Jason or has someone else? So these movies are old, as we have said, so spoilers ahead. So Rudy, did Jason return from the dead or was I right? All along that Tommy was gonna become the new Jason Vorhees?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 22:39
Um, you were you were wrong?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 22:44
Yeah, I was wrong.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 22:45
But I don't know. I'm like, it would have been cool if they did that.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 22:51
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 22:52
Right. But yes, no. He did not return to become Jason Vorhees. But he did want he kept on seeing visions of Jason.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 23:05
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 23:06
While he was at the mental retreat ranch thing, whatever that was.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 23:10
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 23:12
But then the murders started up. I think there was I'm explaining what happened, right?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 23:18
Yeah. I want you to explain who the actual new Jason was or whatever.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 23:23
So there is a kid. I guess he's a kid. He's some. There's a mental patient. What was that guy's name? I don't remember his name. Joey. His name is Joey. And he he's, I want to say that he's in his 30s. He's a kind of a hefty guy with curly hair
Ghost Hostess Mandy 23:45
Isn't he younger?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 23:46
I thought they were all young. I don't know. He just seemed like one of those older people that had like a child's mind.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 23:54
Okay, that's fair.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 23:55
But he was kind of like, always trying to like, be around people. And he kind of bugged everybody.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 24:03
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 24:04
And everybody was like, No, I don't need any help Joey just go do your thing. And he was kind of clumsy and a klutz and kind of ruining things. Like there's a I think there's a couple of girls doing laundry. And he's like, Hey, girls, I want to help Can I help you with laundry? They're like, no Joey. We don't need your help? And he's eating a candy bar. Oh, and he's like, explained all this like that. He wants to help. So many quote, unquote, helps out and ends up like ruining a bunch of sheets with this chocolate stain fingers.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 24:32
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 24:33
They're like Joey What are you doing? Get out of here. It's like fine. I'll leave whatever. And across the way there's a guy some maniac with a an anger issue. chopping wood. Well, I think he's chopping wood. Like he's just hacking away at a log. He's not actually chopping wood like for fire. I think that was the director's problem. That was it. But Joey goes home is like Hey, man, can I help you? Have some wood. He's like, just go away from me Get away from me, bro. But Joey's like super persistent, and just keeps on bugging this guy with an axe. And of course, you know it, it's like, stop messing with this lunatic with an axe. And, you know, the guy loses it and like, that puts an axe into like Joey's neck, and like, starts chopping them up. So Joey dies, and that psycho gets arrested. And the coroner comes to pick up the body and stuff and somebody makes fun of Joey. I think one of the guys look one of the coroners, like makes fun of joy for dying.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 25:40
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 25:40
And you can tell the other one was upset about that. So, you know, they take the body away. And after the they take the body away, all these Jason returns and starts killing everybody at the camp.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 25:54
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 25:56
So in the end of it, Tommy ends up stopping Jason and then he unmasks Jason. And it turns out, it was one of the corners from the beginning of the movie that was killing everybody. And we find out that Joey was actually the son of one of the corners in the corner wanted to take his revenge out on the camp. But he used the story of Camp Crystal Lake and Jason, to make everybody believe that is it was Jason killing all these people and not him.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 26:33
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 26:34
So that was The New Beginning.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 26:36
Yes, definitely went in a completely different direction than I was expecting. And it was a little disappointing.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 26:44
Yeah, it was it was weird.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 26:46
It was random.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 26:47
It was pretty random. I think that's the closest that got to like Halloween three Season of the Witch kind of went in a different direction. I think that's like there.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 26:58
Yeah, that's true.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 26:59
Season of the Witch.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 27:00
I have to admit, I'm getting a little ahead. But I still think they've done an incredible job of like continuing the story in right. Like, it's good storytelling, the way it's played out. This one was just kind of like eh for me. But
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 27:12
the cool thing, though, is that the mask was different, because he had like the blue. Um,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 27:19
I didn't notice that.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 27:20
Yes, Jason's has like the top one that's red. And then two side red. Like things. Yeah. But this one only had like the two side blue ones, which was pretty cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 27:32
Wow, I did not notice that.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 27:34
Ghost Hostess Mandy 27:35
I have just some quick notes on this movie. Because I know we have three more to get through. The first one was that I thought it was kind of strange that Tommy keeps seeing visions of Jason, and that it freaks him out every time because he's been experiencing it his whole life. And I'm no expert. But I kind of feel like he should be desensitized to it by now.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 28:00
Ghost Hostess Mandy 28:01
Because I don't know. Like we we've heard now from several people with ghost experiences that once you experience it, you've been through it.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 28:09
Ghost Hostess Mandy 28:09
You they just learn to live with it.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 28:12
Ghost Hostess Mandy 28:12
You're not as scared as we are, who have not experienced it.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 28:15
Ghost Hostess Mandy 28:15
Um, so I just thought it was kind of strange that he keeps seeing him and being scared. I feel like he shouldn't be scared of it at that point.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 28:25
Yeah, maybe? Or maybe he's afraid that, you know, he's gonna turn into that. Maybe he's trying to hold back and from kind of going completely crazy and turning into Jason,
Ghost Hostess Mandy 28:38
which is what I kind of thought in the beginning, see? And if that is the case, I feel like they could have done a better job of conveying that. That's what his fear was. Yeah, I think it would have been a little deeper if that was the main storyline. Another thing that I forgot to mention in the last Friday, the 13th episode was that, for me, it's been extremely interesting seeing the evolution of the way that girls are portrayed in this series. Um, because what year did the very first one come out in?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 29:11
I think in 79.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 29:13
Okay, so we're already at what 80 I just said it 85. Yeah, so about eight years later. Um, so like, in every movie, you kind of see like the very first one, the girls didn't really wear any makeup at all. And then slowly, the girls start to become more attractive, and start wearing more makeup like I mean, we skipped to the newest Friday the 13th recently, out of curiosity, I actually because Rudy wanted inspiration for Tales ffrom the Tent, and it was like drastically different like your Instagram style girl with full face of makeup. Like if you were to put the first girl and the last one right side by side. It's insane. To see like the evolution of how those girls are portrayed.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 30:03
Yeah, I think the more we went along to you saw more clothes come off too.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 30:08
Yes. Agreed. So, yeah, well, I don't know.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 30:13
It kind of, I actually think that it spiked in this movie. And it started to kind of go down. If you think about it.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 30:23
Which scene was in this one? I'm trying to think like the
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 30:25
there's the woods one, where they're in the woods, and they're, oh, she's
Ghost Hostess Mandy 30:28
laying down when she died. Okay,
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 30:30
and then somebody else was naked in that same movie. But then now I think there's like two or three in that one and then started going down to just one and the next ones I think.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 30:41
I think we're definitely gonna need to do like a the bonus features episode at some point. And when we get a chance to watch all the ways I'm really curious to learn more about like the making of the movies. Another little note I had was there's a punk girl in this movie.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 30:58
Oh, yeah. Yeah.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 30:59
I was like, really bummed she wasn't the final girl.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 31:03
Yeah, that would have been pretty cool. Cuz she was Yeah, shit. She Yeah, she was kind of like, just there. She wasn't, she didn't really serve any like purpose.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 31:14
Yeah. And I was just like, I got really excited when I saw her because you're starting to see like, the different, um, I guess because this is in the 80s now so you saw like, the 80s influence in it and like you're starting to see like more of a variety I guess. So I was really excited to see her and I was like, oh, man, she's gonna be like the final girl. She's gonna be like, I'm not gonna take your shit Jason, or whatever. But then she like was one of the first ones killed and like she didn't even put up a fight. I was like, come on, girl. You're giving the alternative girls a bad rep.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 31:48
Right? Yeah, it's interesting. You said that about how the 80s It felt like more of an 80s you know, you can see some of the pop culture sneak in not pup culture but pop culture. Because Yeah, cuz Friday the 13th they kind of like lives in this bubble of just like
Ghost Hostess Mandy 32:09
its own thing.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 32:10
It's own thing, like camping like camp. A. What's it called? Summer Camp. Geez. Like that's the whole summer camp thing where you it would be like a summer thing. Yeah, but yeah, I think her character kind of like includes like some pop culture. And it kind of makes it opens it up to the world more. I don't know it just I thought I thought that was interesting. What you just said.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 32:33
Yeah, it kind of like it dates the movie like reference of when this movie came out.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 32:39
Ghost Hostess Mandy 32:40
And another thing that dates it is at the very end you see the Ghostbusters car.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 32:49
Oh, yeah. Well, it's not a Ghostbusters car. But yeah, it's really weird because there's an ambulance. That is like kind of picking up people. I guess they got killed. But the two main characters that survive at the end they're taken away in a hearse
Ghost Hostess Mandy 33:09
that looks like the Ghostbusters Car.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 33:10
That looks like the Ghostbusters car and it says ambulance in there and I just like there's an ambulance, an actual ambulance right next to it. Why don't you just use that one? I don't understand why they use the hearse. But maybe we'll we'll watch the special features. We'll figure out why they use the hearse instead of an actual ambulance.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 33:26
Perhaps we will. Okay, so should we move on to the next one? Or do you have like something you're dying to mention about this movie?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 33:33
No. I mean, I liked it. Um, I think I thought it was really weird when he escaped. At the end of the movie. Tommy and took the mask?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 33:46
Mm hmm. So explain what happens.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 33:48
Yeah. So at the end of the movie, Tommy is recovering from like, his wounds with his from from his battle with Jason. And there's a there's a girl leftover and she comes to go check on Tommy. But then, like, she doesn't find him and like his windows like busted open and, and there was a hockey mask they like brought brought it in with him. So the hockey mask is gone. And Tommy has gone he escaped. So it's gonna you're led to believe they're leaving it up. Or they're building it up for the next movie.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 34:25
Of Tommy to be Jason and that still doesn't happen.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 34:30
Yeah. And then like, jumping into the next one. He doesn't even have that hockey mask anymore.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 34:36
I know. They never explain why that happened. So there is a plot hole.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 34:41
I think it's an alternate universe thing. Oh, the Jason multi universe fan film on YouTube coming soon.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 34:51
Okay, so on that note, we have Friday the 13th part six Jason Lives. It came out in 1980 Six in this summary is by Michael Silva on IMDB. Tommy Jarvis returns to the graveyard to make sure Jason Vorhees is dead and accidentally brings him back to life. Now it's up to Tommy to stop Jason's mindless killing and put him back where he belongs.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 35:18
You know, one of the things I liked about this movie was I remember it so clearly from when I was a kid.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 35:27
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 35:27
Because I remember seeing the artwork. It was like the, the tombstone. It's, it says, Jason lives and it was just very, like, iconic. And I just liked I always remember that that headstone I've always thought that was cool, because it was always on VHS and I did eventually see it, but I always thought it was so cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 35:48
Well, I'm just gonna say right off the bat that so far, this is my favorite Friday the 13th movie.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 35:55
Why don't you tell us about it?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 35:56
Okay, so at first, I'm even going to be honest that at first in that scene, so what happens is Tommy's like, I have to prove to myself once and for all that he's dead. And I don't have to be scared of him. So I have to dig up his grave and make sure he's in there, right. So he goes to dig it up. And then he decides he's going to set it on fire. Right?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 36:16
Ghost Hostess Mandy 36:17
So somehow something happens that he thinks that Jason's dead he's down there and then Tommy gets out of the grave. And I don't even remember what happens. But for some reason, there's lightning that strikes
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 36:31
Yeah, I think he I think there's a lightning strike or he stabs Jason's body with like, a rod iron.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 36:38
Rod iron from the cemetery.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 36:41
Yeah. One of the gates.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 36:42
Um, so then there's lightning, and that lightning brings Jason back to life
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 36:47
Ghost Hostess Mandy 36:48
Yeah. Yeah. It's like Frankenstein in Monster Squad. But I thought it was so corny. Like, I guess cuz it's dated. The graphics. Were just like, Come on, guys. So I right off the bat. I was just like, I'm not gonna like this movie. It's corny, but I was wrong. So this movie is about Tommy trying to tell the sheriff dude, Jason's back. He's alive in the sheriff's like, we've heard your story. Tommy, you're The Boy Who Cried Jason. You're always trying to come into us. It's Jason when it's you that's out there killing everyone. But the sheriff's daughter? Hold on. I have her name. Megan. Megan, the sheriff's daughter believes Tommy, she wants to help him. So she goes against her dad, the sheriff.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 37:39
Did she have daddy issues? Is that why she is acting against him?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 37:42
No, I don't. I don't think that.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 37:44
I'm assuming that. If you're gonna like go against your share of Dad, you have some daddy issues. Maybe she wants attention because he's always working.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 37:53
Boo, you're gonna ruin the feminist part of this movie. Maybe he doesn't want to be told what to do.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 38:00
Sh okay, this is the 80s but okay.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 38:04
At least none of that stuck out to me. all I got was girl power.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 38:08
It's just my male gaze, I guess I think that's what they call it. Oh, continue.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 38:16
Um, so Megan helps Tommy get the things that he needs she like, connives the entire police to tricking them. And she ends up getting Tommy to Crystal Lake with the things he needs because he has a plan on how he's going to put Jason to rest once and for all. And that plan involves them sinking him to the bottom of the place that he originally died. Um,
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 38:44
you know, there is a feminist movement that I will bring up. Do you remember that crotch shot?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 38:51
Oh, yes, yes, I do remember that. Okay, so they're driving. And she's like, trying to get away from the cops. And then as soon as they like, when they're like head to head her and the cop car, she gets his head and puts it down on her crotch. The way we look like, if it was a guy forcing a girl down on there.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 39:11
It is funny because they're the coming into this blockade and the cops can clearly see him in the car and he's like, put your head down. I don't want you to do that. I want you to see them. And she forces his head down or a crotch and there's like an actual close up of her crotch. And he's just looking at it. So they cut away to him. And he's just like, his face. I know his his eyes are all big. And then like I think she's driving all fast in this like muscle car like a badass. And then she looks like at his head and she like smiles and they cut away back to the crotch and then back to his face. Yeah, she does totally own it. And then like in other movies I've seen like it's the other way around. Guys are trying to be gross. And they'll put like girls heads on their in their lap. So it was pretty hilarious and this is the 82. So, you know, it was just, it was pretty cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 40:05
Yeah, it was cool. And I don't know, I just thought that her and Tommy had really good chemistry and I really loved that. It was like, a couple kind of coming together.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 40:16
Bonnie and Clyde-ish.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 40:17
Yeah, to capture Jason and just going against like everyone not wanting to help them or believing them.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 40:26
Her Sherrif dad got killed ugly, too.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 40:29
I know. That's in my notes. No, no, go ahead.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 40:33
Yeah. So it he finally finds out that Jason is killing everybody. The sheriff. So then he runs into Jason starts unloading on him with his his pistol. But you know, bullets don't kill Jason. So he starts fighting Jason. And then he like, I think Jason falls. And then he tries to like smash his head in with a rock. But then he gets tired and Jason stops him. But this guy is on top of Jason straddling him pretty much. And then Jason just like smooshes him, like a like a wallet backwards
Ghost Hostess Mandy 41:08
in half and half. Like his back touches his butt. Exactly.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 41:12
So he's doing like extreme yoga.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 41:15
Yeah, it was pretty crazy. But that's what he gets. Because he didn't want to freaking listen to Tommy or his daughter. Like, dude, get out of your macho head and listen to what people are telling you.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 41:26
Better advice. Why are you shooting them in the body? Shoot him in the head? I don't understand it when people are like, shooting like someone in the end. He's a police officer. It's like I haven't killed this guy. Let me see if I can kill him with a shot to the head. Come on guy. The worst man what police academy did you go to?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 41:48
Oh, jeez. Um, so that was everything I had on the movie. Again, it was my favorite one so far. And and if you and as you can tell, one of the only ones that I remember like all the details too, which I usually don't. But I do have a fun little fact. Based on this movie. What is it? Um, so I don't know if we will Yes, we said we needed that they needed to get Jason capture him and sent him to the bottom of the lake in his resting place. So I'm sure a lot of you who are fans already know this. But in Minnesota, there is a real camp Crystal Lake and in 2013 somebody actually placed a life sized Jason statue that looks exactly like the one from the movie scene right at the bottom of that camp Crystal Lake. So like Yeah, if you go snorkeling, you will see Jason down there. But you don't know this boom. In 2018, there was another one placed in Lake Pleasant in Peoria, AZ.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 42:51
Oh, that's cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 42:54
An hour away from us. But there's different stories that it was removed or moved to a lower depth for safety measures. So I don't know maybe when this run is over, we'll go like on a major Jason hunt. We're gonna have to learn how to like snorkel to get underwater gear, but that would be so cool because I am not afraid of Jason, you have turned I didn't even like Jason before this, to be honest. But you've kind of made me develop a thing for him that way. I have a thing for Michael Myers, which people don't get. I know, some of our ghouls will get it. But I'm not afraid of Jason. Like if I saw Jason down the street, I'd be like, yo, let's take a selfie. So um, but I think if we were swimming, like imagine someone who doesn't know, right, this statues down there and I see it I would freak out.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 43:49
It's pretty creepy.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 43:51
Yeah, so that's a fun little fact, for anyone who is in or near Minnesota. Go check it out and send us some pictures. Okay, so let's move on to Friday the 13th Part Seven, the new blood in 1988. So, this IMDb summary IMDb. What about a sponsorship? Come on. Okay, so after Jason Vorhees was chained to the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake by Tommy Jarvis, a young telekinetic girl known as Tina Shepard, accidentally killed her father with her powers at Crystal Lake. Years later, Tina and her mother returned to camp Crystal Lake or Tina's doctor tries to manipulate her powers for his own evil plans. Tina then tries to resurrect her father but accidentally awakens Jason instead. It's now up to Tina to use her powers to stop Jason and her evil doctor.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 44:50
Yeah, this one had a lot of, you know, Carrie vibes. You know, it's I kind of felt like they really did. know where to take it, but I thought it was pretty cool that you have this character that has telekinetic powers. You know telekinetic powers is kind of like a big thing in the 80s. We had like, Carrie, I think who else had? Oh, Firestarter. Like all these characters had like the ability to do things with their mind. You also kind of see a lot of that in Stranger Things with 11. She has telekinetic abilities. But um, yeah, I thought it was cool that they went in a different direction. The doctor that she had was super annoying. And you were just waiting for Jason to kill that guy to the whole movie.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 45:39
Yeah, true. I was, um, I don't know. I didn't know if I was in like this movie or not. And I still can't tell you like whether I loved it or if it was just okay. It's really weird. But I will say that. As soon as I saw the whole like, Carrie vibes thing going on. I was like, I already know I'm gonna be totally disappointed with the end fight scene with her. But she didn't disappoint her fight scene was actually really cool. As a final girl.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 46:07
The thing that I didn't like about the final fight was that her dad reappears.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 46:12
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 46:13
but I don't know. Do you wanna say?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 46:16
Yes. Okay, so she put up a really good fight. Like, it's really it's probably the most interesting final girl scene or like, final fight scene with Jason period. Because like, she's the only one that's been powerful enough to actually put up a fight against him. And it's funny because you can see him getting like, frustrated. Um, but at the very end, the way she completely defeats him as she sinks him back to his original resting place. But the way she does that is her she resurrects her dad finally, to pull him down. But what we didn't say in the summary is that the reason she even killed her dad is because she's fed up of him abusing her mom. So I did not like that. They use her dad as like, the person who saves her then like she didn't need the dad to save her like that change the narrative and made him the hero. What she should have just done is put use the chains, right to pull him down. change her dad to do it for her. Yeah, I'm not happy. It's like they took two steps forward with part.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 47:29
Of how badass she was.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 47:31
No Yeah, with Part Six. The girl like stepping up and seven. They're like, Oh, but it's gonna be the dad in the end. That saves her.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 47:38
Yeah, they took like, a step back.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 47:41
Yeah, so we're gonna be like, Amanda that's like how horror movies work? Yeah, I was like, come on, like you built this character in a whole movie. And the dad was a jerk. Like he abused the mom.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 47:55
So I would love to like, like, remake all of these movies. Based on the movies that already exists. So take all these ideas that already exist and bring them back to life. Imagine 11 like a character like 11 facing off with Jason this unstoppable killing machine that'd be freakin cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 48:15
Oh, man, I have all these like little ideas brewing in my head. So much content. Okay, and then. Okay, and then this is just like one of my silly This is like a comment Rudy would make trying to have you who saw Tales from the Tent All I could think when Jason was resurrected from the water was he must be super stinky.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 48:39
Ghost Hostess Mandy 48:41
Like on top of like, being dead and like brought back to life. Now. He's been underwater for who knows how long like he just looks like he smells disgusting. I think we learn from the second movie to me being like, I want to hug him in his overalls to me being like, I would smell him a mile away and start running. Okay, any other notes, Rudy?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 49:07
I think that's it. I did enjoy that one. Of course. I didn't like the end scene with the Father that that was weird. But they could have just ended it with like a bunch of chains coming back coming out of the water and like, catching Jason, but it was pretty cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 49:21
Yeah, it was a good movie. I I was surprised with it. Yeah, I was surprised. Okay, so finally we have Friday the 13th part eight. Jason takes Manhattan just one year later in 1989. So I have a question, Rudy. Was it common for movies to release sequels so quickly back then, because I feel like nowadays you have to wait years for a sequel and all these movies came out like year after year, if not, like maybe a year and a half later.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 49:54
Um, it was pretty common like a lot of these movies didn't take a lot of money to make so yeah, they wanted to keep that like money train going, they're like we're gonna release a new one and just keep it going until like, it flops and then, you know, milk that cow. I think Back to the Future Part Two and three were like that, because they made them like back to back. Because after the first movie, you saw a trailer right away for the next one. Part Three. So it was pretty common to kind of release stuff fairly, like close to each other. It just kind of dependent on the movie too.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 50:30
That's crazy. I don't know it. To me. It's just like, especially because of the quality of the movies. They they've done such a good job of keeping the storylines going well, and the storytelling. It's just interesting to me. I had no idea. I think I mentioned this in the other episode we had, but I had a complete misconception of this series. Like I assumed that they were just like, corny slashers. And that Jason was just like, I never understood why he was so iconic, or why you liked him. The first like five years of our marriage, like he's just Jason like, come on.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 51:06
You know, and I wish I had, like, I wish I had been around to see like the first three. Because when I saw the first two, I was like, What is going on here? Like, when is he? I thought he had a hockey mask? am i watching the right movie? Oh, but then if you grew up watching the first one, you thought it was so awesome. And then Jason comes out in the second one like, Oh my god, the mom son is alive. And he's killing all these people. And they're like, Oh, my God, he's back. And then he has a hockey mask. That's so cool. So I wish I had grown up in that time to just like experience it the right way. Yeah. Oh, shit. That's awesome.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 51:47
Well, it's funny though, because like for me, I mean, we talked about this already, but I was Mind blown. By the way it originated right. And I was like, did they know it was gonna be this huge iconic thing with his hockey mask? And they probably didn't. Just like, holy cow. They like took this Pamela Vorhees character into this like, entire franchise
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 52:10
Behind every man. Behind every great man is a great woman.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 52:17
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 52:17
Ghost Hostess Mandy 52:20
All right, let's keep this train rolling because I know we're taking a while but we've had so much fun on this episode.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 52:25
Ghost Hostess Mandy 52:25
Okay, so I didn't like the IMDb summary on this one. So here's my attempt at a summary on it. A high school senior class is going to go on a trip to New York, two teenagers are in a boat the night before the class is taking off, in none other than camp Crystal Lake. The anchor from the boat somehow clinks with the poles around Jason and he is reawakened with electricity once again. He obs kills two teenagers and then I guess drives the boat to where the main ship for the senior class is located. On the boat is Rennie a girl who has issues with water and keep seeing the ghost of Jason as a child drowning. Of course, Jason ends up going on a killing rampage on the ship until it's down to just the main characters of the movie. Then they team up and try to kill him and somehow end up reaching New York, disembark and reach the streets of Manhattan where they encounter more problems. And yes, Jason follows them off the ship too. So you can tell from my summary, that this was not my favorite movie. But it's, it is slash was it still your favorite movie, Rudy?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 53:33
It's one of my favorite ones. I'm gonna be honest, hadn't seen it in a very long time. But I think again, the poster of Jason holding on to a skyline of Manhattan as the artwork for the movie was always iconic. And I always thought that it was cool that, you know, Jason was going to be in a place that was not, um, Camp Crystal Lake. It was kind of like a fish out of water story.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 54:03
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 54:04
So like what you said in the, in the summary, or the synopsis? There are two kids that are part of like the, the field trip, right? And like they hook up and when the guy drops an anchor, and there's like, a electrical line that powers the whole camp. And he is the one that brings them back to life. But the interesting thing was, he starts to tell the story of Jason Vorhees. To the girl he's with, oh, you get her scared. So she like cuddled up on him and wants to like, Get down. And then like he leaves at some point and he comes back but he has a Jason mask with him. So then when Jason wakes up, he doesn't have a mask. And you would assume like his mask is underwater, but it's not For some reason, so when he got when he gets on the boat, he grabs the mask that the guy had. And he uses that mask. I thought that was interesting. Yeah, that is cool. After that, the rest of the so it's kind of almost like two movies, if you think about it, because he, you know, kills most of the high school class on a boat. That's supposed to take a trip to New York.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 55:26
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 55:26
Well, I actually I don't know if they're supposed to go to New York. I think they're just supposed to be on the boat partying.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 55:32
No, they keep saying that they're going on a trip to Manhattan. Okay. Yeah, they do.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 55:37
So um, so, you know, majority of it, like kind of takes place there. Like half of the movie in the movie seems like really long.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 55:45
It's more than half of the movie. Yeah, like this really upset me. It was like false advertising. Because especially because we had previously talked about this, and you built it up to be this like, fish out of water story. And it's so cool. Seeing Jason in Manhattan. And the whole frickin movie. I was like, when is he getting to Manhattan? Like this is so I don't know, I just was not feeling the whole boat story. And I think part of it too, was I didn't feel anything for the characters. Like they didn't. I don't know, I just wasn't feeling it. And by the time they got to Manhattan, I was like, We're barely here. And it was cool. Like, it was really cool. Seen a different take of that so I was just like, it should have been, like, 25% of them in the boat. And then 75% in Manhattan.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 56:31
I think that they wanted it to be a lot more Manhattan, but I'm pretty sure it was expensive to shoot in New York.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 56:39
Yeah, that makes sense.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 56:40
I'm pretty sure it's expensive to like, close off certain sections of New York. Yeah. So I'm pretty sure that they had like maybe a handful of scenes that were shot in New York. And maybe a couple of like plates where they just shot like scenery and stuff. Yeah. And then they shot most of it in like a soundstage or something or somewhere in California, somewhere where it was cheaper to shoot like, like the alley scenes and stuff like that. But yeah, I thought it was cool. Like, I thought that like, you know, you know, he's killing all these people on a boat, and you can't really escape that like, where he's supposed to go. Like you can't like, you're like in the middle of nowhere. Even if you escape in a little boat, which they ended up doing, you're still stuck in the water. And then, you know, it's funny, because he's like, super fast in this movie. If you really, if you notice it, because there's scenes where like, they're running away from him. And there was somebody will be like running up some stairs or something. And then he;s a;ready up there like Oh, shit. And then, you know, the characters the remaining or the remaining kids. You know, they make it ashore in New York. And then he just pops up like jaws like he was swimming the whole time just crazy. But I thought it was cool. And he was just like, he just looked like almost like a lost dog in the city.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 58:07
Yes, I agree with that. And I have to admit that the Manhattan part was really good. But for me, it was like, I can't believe how long I had to wait for that to actually happen. So to counter your argument for the whole cost thing, I just looked it up in the movie ran an hour and 40 minutes. Even if they had condensed 10 minutes of the boat time and made it an hour and 30 minutes, right, I would have been a lot happier, like the boat part just went on too long. In my opinion.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 58:37
I can see how it dragged.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 58:39
And I really liked the Manhattan part. So moving forward on the part that I did. Like, I have to admit you. You guys know me I'm a frickin weirdo. I just said I have a thing for Jason and Michael Myers. And I want to hook Jason in his overalls. But this movie made me sad at the end.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 58:58
I know what you're talking about.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 58:59
Um, so at the end, the way they get that they defeat Jason is there's like an acid bath or toxic waste. Yeah, in the
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 59:11
Ghost Hostess Mandy 59:11
SunMetro- there's my Mexa. In the what again?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 59:19
So they're in the they're trying to escape them and the only way they could so I think the two two main characters, they get stuck in an alley and the only option is to go into the source system in New York. So they're like trying to get away from him. And they meet a guy that works down there. He's like, we got to get out of here because they flood the whole sewer system with toxic chemicals.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 59:40
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 59:41
And if we're down here, we're gonna die so that they're able to escape but Jason isn't and he gets
Ghost Hostess Mandy 59:48
drowned in toxic waste.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 59:52
Before that happens, the girl the final girl she throws acid at his face yeah, why don't you talk about that.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:00:02
Well, the mask melts off, right?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:00:05
I think it just cracks and falls off.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:00:06
Yeah. And then his face starts to melt right again. And like, at this point, I'm just like, I'm kind of mixing up the scene in my head. I have bad memory. So that combined with him completely being drowned. I'm just like, he has been through so much.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:00:22
But he like screams like a hurt dog. Remember?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:00:27
Yes. And talk about it, because I'm mixing up the scenes.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:00:31
So yeah, she's trying to make the final girl throws acid in his face. And he screams. Like, he's in pain. And it's, it's kind of jarring. Because Jason doesn't make any noise. I think about it, it hurt. And like it hurts you because you love this character. And he's kind of like a hurt dog like a hurt. Like, what's it called stray dog and you feel bad for him. And I remember when it happened, I looked directly at you. And you just gave me a sad puppy dog face because you felt bad for Jason.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:01:05
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:01:06
But then like they escape and then he you know, gets overrun by the toxic waste. And you know, they escaped, but you just felt really bad for Jason.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:01:13
Yeah. It's just like, it's making me like, knot in my throat right now. Because I just feel like he's been through so much like the poor kid drowned. And then, who knows? I don't even know. Like, I guess he didn't completely drown because he was alive, but then he gets killed. And then he's like, resurrected twice. And then he's like, drowned again. And then he's resurrected again. And it's just like, and now he's being like drowned his worst experience in toxic waste. Like it's just let the poor thing rest in peace. Like stop electrocuting him and stop visiting camp Crystal Lake, like, just let him rest.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:01:56
Yeah, he's like, Frankenstein. He's like, doomed to, you know, relive his death and birth. Several times.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:02:05
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:02:05
And it's sad.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:02:06
Like, okay, look at the year of 2020 it's been crap. Imagine poor Jason has been like reawaken so many freaking times. Do you blame him for going out and killing everything in sight? Like all humans bring him his misery.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:02:23
Like, dude, I've been trying to sleep. And you really piss me off this time? I'm gonna kill you.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:02:29
So yes, that's where I'm at with Jason takes Manhattan. Do you have any other notes on it?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:02:37
Um, I just remember, one of the scenes that I remember that I liked was when I think he kind of reminds me of Terminator, actually the first Terminator. And he's walking down the street. And there's like these punk kids kind of like smoking cigarettes being cool. And he kicks over their boombox and they get pissed off, or they pull out knives and stuff. They're like, what the hell, man? And then he turns around, and then it just shows his face. He takes off his mask. I know his face. And I'm like, whoa. And then like he just takes off. I just thought that was hilarious.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:03:11
Yeah, I did have one more part to a part of the reason that I didn't like the movie, too, was at the beginning when he gets to the ship. Like they don't show how he gets there. They just imply that he steals the little boat. He's on that he kills those two teams on and gets there. But I was just like, in my mind, I can't picture Jason having the skills to drive a boat to a bigger ship. Like it's just corny. Like, it looks like some of those memes in my head. It's like those memes you see of like, Michael Myers on like a swimming tube.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:03:44
Oh, yeah. Yeah.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:03:46
I'm just like, In what world is Jason gonna know how to freaking drive a boat. Like all he knows how to do is kill.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:03:52
Maybe it was on autopilot. Because in the movie, they have to put the boat in autopilot to go to New York. Remember the kid has to do that.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04:01
But it was they had put the anchor down for the night.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:04:06
Oh, for when he went when it when it hits the power line?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04:12
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:04:13
yeah, that's true.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04:14
I don't know. It was just
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:04:16
Hey, you want to go on the trip too? I bet you he went through one of those kids backpacks is like, oh, they're going to New York. So am I.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04:25
That was his plan all along after camp Crystal Lake. He was gonna go to New York. So that was like
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:04:29
to see the big city. I've never been to the big city. Check it out.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04:33
It just it seemed like a big ol internet meme to me.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:04:36
He's Oh, what is this big apple. I want to see how big this apple is.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:04:45
Okay, so up until this movie. Are you gonna stand by this being your favorite Friday the 13th movie?
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:04:52
Um, I don't know. I kind of like, I don't know. They're all pretty good. It's hard because they're I don't know. I just like all of them. I even like Jason X, which we haven't gotten to yet and that one's pretty bad. But it's one of my favorite ones because he's not at Camp Crystal Lake. But I also like, um, new blood because of the telekinetic girl, and I like part three, because that's the first time you see him in his mask.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:05:24
I like how you see, that's the thing too. I was about to tell you. You can only pick one, Rudy, but I guess I have two. So I'll pick one favorite from each episode so far. From parts one through four episode. I'm gonna stick to part three. Because I love that Shelley story.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:05:43
Yeah its pretty cool.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:05:43
For me Jason Vorhees would not be who he is without the help of Shelley's story, and I still really love Part Six. I think that was the most enjoyable one for me because of the story with the girl. So we will see when we have our next part. Nine through 13. No, 12 Yes, nine through 12 I just figured there'd be a part 13.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:06:09
There shouldn't be a part 13.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:06:10
I know I agree. That's gonna be like the ultimate Friday the 13th.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:06:17
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:06:18
Okay, guys. Whoo. That was long. I'm so sorry. But I had a lot of fun with that. You were so chatty boo. I literally just came up with that.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:06:32
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:06:34
I thought about that about it. Like halfway through the episode. Okay. Oh, okay. Let all the giggles because it's time for something really special. Okay. All right, guys. So for our final
Fables from our Familiar
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:06:52
we are doing something a little different. We kind of lied to our familiar and told him Rudy had a Friday the 13th story prepared and super excited for this episode, so that he wouldn't work on one for this episode. But the truth is, this was actually Rudy's idea. We wanted to do something special for our familiar because we honestly don't know if you guys know how much he really helped us. There was a point where he was working more than 40 hours a week to help us produce the podcast and Tales from the tent. And he does this from the kindness of his heart because he just believes in our dreams, and I have no idea how in the world I was so blessed to make such an incredible friend who brought out the spook in me many more than 10 years ago, and he still keeps pushing me to dig deeper into the spook. So as you all know, we had to make some last minute cuts to Tales from the tent. And it absolutely killed us that we needed to cut what was actually Oscar's favorite story and Tales from the Tent. So we are going to share that story with you ghoulsters. Today, as a tribute to our familiar, The =Ghoul Mates would honestly probably not exist anymore if he had not stepped up and saved us when he did for season two. So here is our last
Fables from our Familiar.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:08:14
Until next to spooky season.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:08:17
So before we get started, let me set the mood, because this is a Tales from the tent story. So I want to establish it like how it played out Tales from the tent. So the tent isn't closed. And you can see here, the wind and the trees bustling outside. And I'm inside the tent, listening to these spooky stories. And I look at Mandy I'm like, oh my god. These stories are so good. I don't know if we should read any more. I'm super scared. But I kinda want to hear some more.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:08:56
Well Boo. I really want to tell you this last story because it was our familiar's favorite.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:09:01
Okay? I want to hear it because I want to hear what Mr. Gato loves. Let's hear it.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:09:11
Okay. This story is called The Haunted Brother, submitted by MikeK92 on Reddit. Steve started out the first three years of his life homeless with his brother and mother. His mother and father had split up right after he was born and neither of them could afford a house on their own. So his mother relied on cheap holiday resorts that would help families in need relatives and shelters. His mother always made sure that he and his brother never realized the situation they were really in. She'd cover it all up as a holiday where they lived. It wasn't too weird for this type of scenario. Outside of the holiday season. Steve didn't find out about the true situation until his mother told him about it and many years after. Finally, after Three years the family got a flat. It wasn't much but they finally had a home. Their father had a place for himself and they were able to start spending more time with him. His mother hated it, but he was still their father at the end of the day. Steven, his brother would see him on the weekends and stayed with their mother the rest of the time. From that point on, it was a pretty normal life, birthdays, game nights playdates with other kids. Life was good. But after a while, their mom started having trouble sleeping. She would sit on the couch in the middle of the night staring into nothing. One night, Steve was going to get some water in the middle of the night and she was just standing in the middle of the hallway. She wasn't doing anything. Just looking in Steve's direction. Steve was frightened by her behavior. She started to have meltdowns and fear that she would get everything taken away from her again. Their rough upbringing had eventually caught up with her. It was alarming to Steve at first, but he learned to live with the sobs. He'd hear from the living room. Every now and then. Three years after they moved into the flat, Steve was sleeping and something woke him up. He expected to hear his mother in the living room, but there was no noise. He tried to focus to see if he could hear anything and all of a sudden, a figure sprung from the bed and grabbed him by the throat for a quick second. Steve ran out of his room crying. His mother quickly checked on him and hugged him. She told him it was just a bad dream. Steve was terrified, but he eventually fell asleep on his mother's bed. In the morning, Steve's brother came into the room and asked, Did it hurt you too Steve? Weird things continue to happen over the years, they'd see someone hiding in the corners, books would fall down, and their mother continued to be really weird at night. Steve got used to it. But his brother couldn't live like that anymore. He left to live with their father to try and get some peace of mind. But it broke their mother. She started crying at night again. But it was different this time. She wasn't in a creepy trance anymore. Steve started to sleep peacefully again. The flat felt peaceful and calm for the first time. Steve would occasionally spend some time at his father's place. But it wasn't long before he started noticing weird things happening there lights would turn on and off and the TV would turn on a few minutes after it would shut off. Steve told his brother about it. But he didn't believe him when he said that whatever was haunting them at their flat had followed him there. He thought his brother was just messing with him. He laughed it off since he didn't believe in ghosts at this point anymore. But his brother didn't laugh. He told him how his friends would plan to stay the night and leave before the night was over because they'd get creeped out. Some of his friends claimed they'd see a face a few inches from their own when opening their eyes. Others would see a figure standing in the doorway. His brother told him that things were far worse after he left him and his mother. Steve tried to debunk his brother stories and asked his friends, but they all said the same things his brother did. Steve started to feel uneasy about the situation. He started to worry about why everywhere his brother went unexplainable things would follow him. After almost 10 years, Steve's brother got his first apartment and got into a serious relationship. They quickly had children and bought a new house. Steve thought his brother hadn't experienced any more strange activities. Steve finally went over to visit his brother and they started drinking. Their intention was to keep the conversation light. But things quickly escalated. They began talking about all the things that happened in the past and started trying to come up with logical explanations for everything that had happened in their earlier years. Steve headed out for the night and got in his car. He saw his brother's arm waving in between the curtains as he drove off. It was a warm feeling because they always used to mock their parents for doing that because they thought it was so cheesy. He texted his brother and teased him. Did you really just wave me goodbye. You really are turning into our father. Steve's brother called him a few minutes later, he sounded shaken up and asked what he meant about the wave. He then explained that when he closed the door after Steve left, his kids started crying. His brother had went upstairs to calm them down right after Steve left. His brother paused, took a deep breath and said, Steve, I never waved goodbye to you.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:14:58
Oh man, babe, that is so Spooky. So do you think it's been following his brother all along?
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:15:03
That's what it sounds like.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:15:06
You know what? I need to get some rest because that's just too spooky. It's gonna take a while for me to go to sleep. You know what I need to go get something from the car real quick. I'll be right back. Okay. There's a guy with a hockey mask out here and a machete! The End. Tales from the Tent with Jason appearing.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:15:36
Yeah. And actually, I'm glad you brought that up because Did anybody else catch in the season finale at the end of Tales from the Tent I said, and then he jumped out of the water and he grabbed her. That was an homage to Friday the 13th if anyone caught that. I know this was all very corny, but honestly, this story was really good. Oscar loved this story. Like he had a personal attachment to it. He thought it was really sad we cut I kind of I rewrote this story so that it wouldn't be sad. So thank you so much to Mike for allowing us to use his story. And on that note, if you guys loved fables from our familiar and Tales from the Tent please flood Oscar's DMs on Instagram slide don't just slide in there like flood him @flopscar F L O P S C A R and let him know that he is the best producer a ghoul could ever ask for. Because he is the reason that The Ghoul Mates are here today.
Master of Scaremonies Rudy 1:16:45
Exactly. Thank you Mr. Gatito and actually go there and call him Mr. Gato cuz he's our familiar. He's our cat. Gato is Spanish for cat. gato.
Ghost Hostess Mandy 1:16:59

And you know, there's a lot of fun stuff that's happening on there. But you guys are always talking about like, the craziest stuff.
