\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//

Why Even Bring This One Up?

Mainly Because I Just Watched It…

…For Like The 98,000TH TIME!!!

(oooohhhh yeeeaaahhh)

Seriously.

Alright…

…Maybe It Was Only The 97,412TH TIME…

…But That Is Still A LOT!!!

Right???

My Intro To…

RUTGER HAUER

…Was Actually…

1982’s

BLADE RUNNER

…Then…

1985’s

LADYHAWKE

…Then I Went Backward And Saw…

1981’s

NIGHTHAWKS

…But THEN Came…

1986’s

THE HITCHER

!!!

!!!

Needless To Say…

…As A Child…

RUTGER HAUER

…May Have Been…

…THE…

…MOST TERRIFYING MAN IN FILM…

…To ME…

…At THAT Point.

He Was So SO TOUGH!!!

In Fact…

…I’m Gonna Use The Term…

“BAD ASS”

…Since That’s All He Seemed To EVER BE!!!

And I LOVED HIM For It.

PERIOD.

So…

…When I Saw…

THE HITCHER

…For The Very First Time…

…Yeah…

…I’m Pretty Sure That’s Why I STILL Tend To Speed-Up When I See Someone Hitchhiking.

I AIN’T STOPPIN’…

…And…

…There Ain’t NO WAY Whoever That Person May Be Is Gonna Get The Chance To SLICE & DICE ME.

PERIOD PERIOD.

In Fact…

…This Film MAY Have Marked The Beginning Of The End…

…For MOST Hitchhikers…

…WORLD WIDE!!!

I Have NEVER ONCE Actually SEEN A Person…

…Randomly Pick-Up An Unknown Hitchhiker…

…EVER.

NEVER ONCE.

Could THIS FILM Be The Reason???

I’d Say It Sure As Shit HELPED!!!

Wouldn’t You Say So, Also???

Maybe???

This sequel is my absolute favorite Friday the 13th film. It doesn’t get the credit it deserves, but we all know it rocks. After surviving the final chapter that wasn’t, as well as the Jason that wasn’t, we see a grown-up, and much cuter, Tommy Jarvis determined to send Jason back to where he came from – the bottom of Crystal Lake. Jason’s been haunting him for years now, and since he can’t leave well enough alone, he is hell-bent on destroying Jason’s corpse, now buried in a cemetery. Let’s get to it, shall we?

So, Tommy and his buddy leave the mental hospital and go to the cemetery in Lake Forest Green (renamed from Crystal Lake) to dig up Jason’s body and burn it. His friend, Hawes doesn’t really get how much power Jason has over him, but he will find out. After digging up the grave, Tommy plunges a…

My Favorite Sequel…

Aloha, Mister Hand

Ahh, our first real taste of the immortal Jason Voorhees. Released in 1981, this sequel mostly takes place five years after the events of the first film. However, before we get to that, we are witness to Alice’s continued mental suffering after surviving the prior incident at Camp Crystal Lake. She is still an artist, but seems to have become very cynical, jumpy, and defensive. Who wouldn’t? Either way, we flash back through her dreams to the end of the first film and the iconic decapitation of the abominable Mrs. Voorhees. She then takes a phone call with her mother, who is worried about her mental health. After jumping in the shower, the phone rings again but no one is there….Alice feeds her cat after he gave her quite a scare by jumping through the window. She goes to open the fridge and sees Mrs. Voorhees’ severed head. She shrieks, just…

You Wanna Know What’s On, Eh?! Ever Heard Of “SOMEONE BEHIND THE DOOR” (1971) ???

"SOMEONE BEHIND THE DOOR" (1971) Starring CHARLES BRONSON, ANTHONY PERKINS, And JILL IRELAND

… … … … … … …

My Educated Guess

…Says…

…A BIG OLE…

…NOT…

…AT…

…ALL.

PERIOD.

In All Honesty, My Peeps…

…I Know THREE LIVING HUMANS Whom Have Seen This Flick.

That’s IT.

In My Whole Little World…

…Thar Be THREE!!!

(teehehe)

ONE…

…Is…

…ME.

And I’m RELATED To The Other TWO.

This Is A Flick That Has Gone Down In The Annals Of Film History…

…As…

…A TRUE “UNKNOWN“…

…Yet…

…A DIAMOND In The PROVERBIAL ROUGH.

CHARLES BRONSON

(Known Mainly For Playing Tough-Ass AND Crafty Good-Guys)

…Plays A Man…

…Who Has ZERO CLUE…

…As To…

…WHO HE IS…

…WHERE HE’S FROM…

…WHERE HE’S AT…

…WHY HE’S HERE…

…He Knows Nothing.

Nothing EXCEPT…

…He Was On The Beach…

…And There Was A Woman…

…And He THINKS He Was Helping/Rescuing Her.

He Is Taken To A London Hospital…

…Where He Encounters A Brilliant Neuro-Specialist And Psychiatrist…

…Played By…

ANTHONY PERKINS

…Who Then Takes Our Amnesia-Stricken Wanderer To His Private Residence.

PERKINS’ Character Has A Plan, You See.

His Wife…

…Played By…

JILL IRELAND

…Is Being Unfaithful…

…Or So He Suspects.

After Finding A Love-Letter In Her Purse…

…He’s Quite Sure She Is.

— — —

Real Quick-Like, Peeps…

…Here’s The Tagline For The Film…

WHAT IF YOUR MEMORY IS SOMEONE ELSE’S REVENGE?

(Are You Starting To Get Warmed-Up On This One??? GREAT!!!)

— — —

PERKINS’ Character Then Begins Plotting AND Exercising His Power…

…In Attempting To Transplant A Total Personality Onto The Amnesiac.

He Begins To Make The Amnesiac Believe…

…The Wife Is Actually THE AMNESIAC’s OWN Wife…

…And That She’s Being Unfaithful To HIM, Not PERKINS’ Doctor.

YES, My Peeps…

…I’m Saying This Right.

CHARLES BRONSON

…Man’s Man…

…Is Playing A Mentally-Ill Man…

…Who’s Now FURIOUS With RAGE That HIS WIFE Is Cheating…

…And He Wants Her “Other Man” DEAD!

😀

Yeah…

…It’s A TOTAL MIND-BLOW Of A Flick…

…When You Consider Exactly…

…WHAT’S GOING ON…

…And…

…HOW IT’S GOING DOWN!

If You’re A Person Who’s Truly TRULY Seeking Something DIFFERENT…

…And…

…INTERESTING…

…And…

…ODDLY CRAZY…

…Then…

SOMEONE BEHIND THE DOOR

…COULD BE…

…THE FLICK…

…YOU’VE SOUGHT!!!

I Really Don’t Wanna Give The Whole Thing Away…

…Because I Sincerely Think/Feel…

…If You’d Just Give This One A Chance…

…It MIGHT Just SURPRISE You.

PERIOD.

And…

…After All…

…Isn’t THAT Where The “Spice Of Life” Comes From???

We May Fear The “UNKNOWN“…

…But…

…Sometimes…

…The “UNKNOWN” Can Be So SO AWESOME!!!

You Really Should Just Trust Me.

…Of The 21ST-CENTURY…

…Thus Far.

Quality “Break-Up Songs” Are NOT Easy To Come By.

Some Folks Try And Try…

…But The Tunes Just DON’T Resonate With Me So Much.

THIS ONE…

…On The Other Hand…

…Is Already…

…A CLASSIC Among CLASSICS…

…A FAVE Of FAVES!!!

…At Least…

…It Is To ME.
