@jiggaboojeeves: I've actually been paying $5 to watch Drew Scanlon envelop himself in Metal Gear but "premium blog posts" critiquing a genre that I love are a nice aside, at least in my opinion. Glad you're still bothering to post on the forums here though!
@bonorbitz when you put it that way, it IS pretty silly that a word of spanish origin is being uttered by some demon oriental creature thing and it kinda does detract from it as a whole, but like you, I thought it was still the best segment of an otherwise disappointing film. I can't believe some prefer VHS 2 either. That first entry was so fucking strong. Even when it was at it's worst (Tuesday the 17th), it was at least interesting. Not only that, but it managed to stick to the lo-fi aesthetic which the two sequels COMPLETELY fail to do.
