Great Character Arcs in Horror: Friday The 13th IV, V And VI’s Tommy Jarvis!!

13 September 2013 10:17 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Writing an introduction to an article about quite possibly the best character in the entire Friday The 13th series (aside from Jason, obviously..) shouldn’t be this hard, but what do you say about the only person who not only handed Mr. Voorhees his ass, not once like most survivors, but three times? I’m kidding, of course…there’s plenty to be said, and well, it’s time to say it. So, without further ado, Great Character Arcs in Horror: Tommy fucking Jarvis.

Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter is not only my favorite entry into the series, but it’s always one of my five favorite films of all time. Every single thing about that movie does it for me, the teens, the kills, the dancing..and Tommy Jarvis. Played by Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys, The Goonies…if you don’t know Feldman, shoot yourself »

A Look Back At Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter

16 January 2013 9:20 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There’s something about the Friday The 13th film series that I just love. Sure, in my opinion Halloween is a better film than Friday The 13th (in fact so is A Nightmare On Elm Street), but as a series, F13 just blows them out of the water. The Halloween franchise had only about four films that I liked then it became pretty forgetful (The Thorn angle, the CG mask shots, Busta Rhymes..). The A Nightmare On Elm Street series had gotten so bad that by Freddy’S Dead, I was over it as well (massive props to the original and the 2nd and 3rd one though). As a series, I’m on board with the first seven Fridays though. They established a formula, and didn’t deviate from that formula very often (in a good way) during those first few bouts with Jason and in the original, Pamela Voorhees. »
