    I love LXG.

    I’ll never argue that it’s a good movie but I’ve had fun every time I’ve watched it...which is at least 10 times

    re HOUSE: That's because, according to the wiki article at least, large parts of it were, or at least the result of the director listening to one (his daughter).

    So House was the original Axe Cop? That...makes a lot of sense, actually.

    Not that far out of bounds actually. India is where Eastern martial arts began all the way back in the veddic period. And the curved flasher he used would be something used in those arts, though not as distinctively Indian as the katara (fist dagger, think Voldo from Soul Calibur) or urumi (whip sword, similar to Ivy, but one ribbon of honed steel that could fuck shit up from 8-10 feet).

    Also, I think it would be very easy to see the witches in Hocus Pocus existing in the What We Do in the Shadows universe.

    he uses a scimitar/falcata style sword with a very indian looking pommel

    an urumi would've been too absurd for most people, cause urumi users are terrifying lunatics and actual sword wizards

    This made me remember a time when I had been fencing for years and my opponent did a “flick” against me. A flick in foil fencing is when you hit your opponent, or their foil in such a way to cause your foil’s tip to whip around to touch your opponent in normally out of reach areas.

    My opponent hit me on my shoulder very hard which caused the foil to curve around and the sensor registered a point on my back.

    Even with the multiple layers and added metallic vest, I had a huge bruise there for weeks.

    the urumi is the last weapon you learn in a line of martial arts

    you are already tremendously well-trained by the time you fucking touch it

    The first time you get flicked your immediate response is "that's fucking bullshit." Or at least, mine was.

    It's quite something.

    i'm finally doing it, gang

    i am finally watching every friday the 13th movie and scouring them for details to find out just how long the nineteen eighties lasted.

    i am also gonna determine how old jason was before being sent into space

    my general notes ahead of time:

    1. freddy vs jason happens before jason x
    2. jason goes to hell happens on the new earth jason was dumped on at the end of jason x
    3. alice's dream at the end of the original did not happen.

    we have a north star in that this universe did have a nineteen fifties: jason drowned in 1957. so time does flow, but we may need to do some math to figure out how much time passed between jason takes manhattan and freddy vs jason.

    Can you expound on #2 please

    Yeah, doesn't the end of Jason Goes to Hell segue into Freddy vs Jason?

    a common misconception!

    but jason is brought to hell at the voorhees house in jason goes to hell, but in freddy vs. jason he pops up out of water when brought back.

    furthermore, freddy krueger cannot talk to the dead, but he can talk to those that are dreaming

    what you are seeing is krueger jolting jason awake from one of his many dormant states that he is famous for

    e: and so i don't triple post, @Undead Scottsman i will be plotting where freddy's dead and post-apocalyptic springwood fit in

    the rest of the main nightmares line up jason lives; as they exist solely in the post-frankenstein jason world

    POINT OF ORDER! I'm in the midst of my Halloween Freddy vs Jason rewatch, and Jason pops up in a forest at the beginning, not in water.

    EDIT: Also, Freddy says he had to search the bowels of hell to find Jason. There's nothing saying people in hell don't dream.

    you're right; forest is the beginning and water is the end. this is the only thing i am incorrect about, however!

    seeing as how neither is the voorhees house!

    and why would freddy have to search for jason in hell when he was the one who dragged him down there in jason goes to hell? once krueger has a link with you he can find you anywhere.

    and, if we are saying that this films happened in release order, krueger's abilities were sealed away years prior by dream demons. he could not possibly have infiltrated his dreams after jason goes to hell.

    clearly the "bowels of hell" is just a dramatic exaggeration for how difficult it was to find jason voorhees' consciousness, or what is left of it.

    jason wins in freddy vs jason
    then freddy evens the score by dragging him to hell in jason goes to hell.

    I think the idea is it is something buried deep inside the child Jason was that Freddy brought to the surface.

    Going to jump in with one of my favorite fun facts about the Friday the 13th remake:

    It takes place in the Transformers/Bumblebee Bay universe. In Transforms, Megan Fox/Mikaela gets invited to blonde rich teen Trent's parents' cabin by Trent, which she declines to pursue Witicky.

    Three years later, Trent and a bunch of his friends go to the cabin and are just absolutely beefed by silent daddymask in the remake.

    He doesn't, I don't think? Jason gets dragged to hell via whatever weird supernatural bullshit happens at the end of the movie. Freddy just grabs his mask. (It's been a LONG time since I've seen Jason Goes to Hell)
