  1. Hey Dino the hip is slowly getting better…I’m past the I wish I was dead stage…:)…Anyways I watched part 4 yesterday and when I got to the scene where Jason is attacking Rob in the basement…I just about lost my shit…The way Rob started screaming OH GOD HE’S KILLING ME…HE’S KILLING ME!!! before Jason even starts stabbing him and he screams it again before Jason is finished with him… I had to rewatch it a couple times…it just cracked me upped…its the little things you notice going back and rewatching these movies…Can’t wait for the next episode!!!…Oh yeah Crispin Glover gets my vote for MVP of the entire series…

    • @Shannon – Glad to hear you’re getting better. I whine like a baby whenever I have mild hip soreness from sitting for too long at one time, so I can’t even imagine what you’re dealing with.

      I’m going to re-watch THE FINAL CHAPTER tonight. I’ve been re-watching each film twice on back-to-back nights just to stretch out and savor this experience as much as possible. You’re right about picking up those little things. Part 2 is my favorite of the franchise (at least going into this re-watch), so I’m looking forward to hearing this “serious battling” on the podcast.

      • Was there a “serious battle”? I don’t remember. I’m sad to say that this episode felt rushed to me. I didn’t get to cover about half my notes for each film. We’re not trained for this one episode a week business. I think we’re all getting a little fatigued. I personally promise to step up my gave for Part 3 (and beyond) of the franchise coverage.

        • Josh if there were points you missed out on talking about you can always bring them up in the franchise overview episode!

          I’m listening to this episode now and I love it so far!

    • I thought Rob’s death was absolutely terrifying. I can see why it might strike you are funny too, but that might be Jason’s scariest kill in some ways. I also couldn’t agree with you more about Crispin Glover.

      ^ Two excellent points I didn’t bring up in the review. Thanks for mentioning them here. And so glad you are making some process in your recovery. Get well soon!

      • I totally agree. Rob’s killing was shocking. It left a sick feeling in my stomach the first time I saw it and still scares me all these years later.

  2. @JOTD – I like how you’ve called out the themed episodes in the right sidebar. Nice touch (or, maybe it was Wolfman Josh who set that up?).

    • Yes, I’ve been making those, Dino. Thanks for noticing. The themed eps are my favorite of HMP and they are the ones I always recommend to new listeners. I have a few friends who aren’t even into horror (Cody Clark and Aaron Thompson from Movie Stream Cast to name a couple) who I got hooked on HMP by introducing them through the themed episodes. I wanted to make those specialty buttons for the sidebar so that I could direct people to them more easily. I also see them as the legacy of this show and the part that I hope will live on.

  3. Hey Jay, thanks for the update.

  5. I am looking forward to the podcast. The first four films are the absolute best and I’m looking forward to your insight and comments.

    • I feel very bad about my reviews this time out Slasher Matt. We were too short on time to cover these films and I didn’t get to a large portion of my notes for each film. Also, if you thought I came off as a hater last time, you’re going to be really disappointed with me this time. Last time I was just reporting facts. This time Jay provokes me into open mockery. I will find a way to make this up to you guys.

  6. I just recently found these podcasts, I think they were recommended by the Myers House S.C. facebook page. I am really enjoying listening to them. (and arguing with you in my head sometimes!) I’ve been a Halloween fan from day one and Friday the 13th is right up there as well. Keep up the good work.

    • Not only should you argue with them in your head Katie but be sure to drop by the comments and argue with them in writing. Sometimes these guys need a good telling off.

      Especially Josh.
