Kane Hodder: V.C. hit me hard and it was 66 punches or something for the sequence. And, you know, you do numerous takes of that, you're getting the shit beat out of you.

Another Good Documentary on the Series

New York Has a New Problem: The Making of Friday the 13th Part VIII (2009)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Here's another very good featurette from Paramount, this one taking a look at part 8 in their series, which is often considered one of the most disappointing. Director Rob Hedden is joined by Kane Hodder, VC Dupree, Jensen Daggett, Scott Reeves, Peter Mark Richman, Tiffany Paulsen, Sharlene Martin, editor Steve Mirkovich and his son Tim who played young Jason in the film. Fans often consider this one of the worst in the series and the director talks about various subjects including the budget just being cut so they couldn't shoot that much in NYC and they also discuss some of the death scenes that were trimmed by the MPAA. Thankfully there are a few outtakes that we get to see, which shows some of the carnage that was cut out. The cast members also have several fun stories about shooting and Hodder mentions that his favorite moment as Jason was filming on Time Square. There's also another funny outtake where the director stripped down naked so that the actress in the film wouldn't be as embarrassed about her nude scene. There's an outtake of the director in the shower, which is pretty funny. There's also talk about the ending and why it didn't work as well as everyone had hoped. Again, we get an outtake of what they were trying to go for but this effect really looks poor. Hodder also puts a rumor to rest that he hated the ending. Fans of the series will enjoy this even if it runs way too short.
