Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter as an 80s Sitcom!

tumblr_mpmy1hTXD11srsy9vo1_500Y’know if you study that above gif closely, it’s almost as if Jason is giving little Tommy Jarvis a big hug.

Perhaps it’s this demented way of thinking that made me realize when you remove all the murders from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, it actually looks like some cheesy 80s sitcom. So, I did just that!

I finished by slapping some nondescipt 80s keyboard music behind it, and boom: no longer an 80s horror movie, but an 80s sitcom about a loving family with a big cast of characters and that wacky neighbor Jason who always seems to barge in at the wrong time.

So enjoy. Y’know, now that I’m thinking about it, those wacky teens from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 would make for a great Just the Ten of Us-style show. Hmm…

  1. When I think of my favorite slasher movies (F13, The Burning, Sleepaway Camp), I realize that I would even enjoy them with the horror elements removed. I enjoy what you did here!

    1. Thanks for checkin’ it out!

      I think the importance of at least a halfway decent story or good characters is vital to a horror movie. Afterall, it’s still an ordinary movie just like any other, except with horrific elements. So if you take those horror elements away, the movie should still have some sort of consistency.

      It works on a subconscious level: sure, we go to see horror films for the scary, bloody stuff; but if it’s nothing but mindless filler, our brains pick up on it and we might lose interest or just not care about what’s happening.

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you need someone to root for, otherwise the movie ain’t no good!
