Been thinking alot about how I just can´t stand many of my favorite movies series from 15 years back. I used to love the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elmstreet series when I was a teenager, but now I can barely watch any of them. I can´t really understand anymore what made them so great to me. Let´s take Friday the 13th, compared to a lot of other slashers from that era like The Prowler, My Bloody Valentine and the Burning (movies I STILL love) the Friday movies are just TOO damn stupid. Boring and flat characters, no story at all and absolutly no suspense. The first one is so amateurish it almost hurts, and the climax fight between Mrs Voorhees and the survivor is so damn laughable it turns into comedy. The only parts I can almost stand watching today is part 2 and 4, could be because those where the first I saw. Same thing with the Freddy movies, only the original can keep me entertained today. I used to love part 3 and 4, but they are WAY to silly and just don´t do it for me anymore. I first saw both the Friday and Nightmare when I was about 12-13 years old, never felt they were all that scary, but still something made me love them for years. Compare this to other 70:s/80:s classics like "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Maniac", "The Thing", "Cannibal Holocaust", Fulci´s zombie movies, "Evil Dead" etc. that I love even MORE today in comparision. I could never have dreamt about EVER gotten sick and tired of my beloved Friday and Nightmare movies as a kid Anyone else gotten so sick and tired of movies you used to love and cherish? No offense to ANY of you who still love and worship the Jason and Freddy stuff!
