Chh chh chh ahh ahh ahh. Every book in this series would have made a better movie than pretty much any of the movies. The stories just took everything beyond the whole "slaughter a bunch of horny teens" and delved into other realms that showed the Jason character actually does have some versatility.

In this book, sadly the last of the series, we find out the title has a double meaning. Not only is there a traveling carnival of horror oddities that attempts to display the body of Jason as an attra

Another great Friday the 13th Book from the Black Flame series! After reading all five, I've got to say that this book and the Hate-Kill-Repeat book would be the best ones to base a new movie on.

His mother Pamela feels the time has come for her to help her son get better.

It is his birthday, after all. Happy Friday the 13th.

Since I had just finished the last novel in the Jason X series, To The Third Power, I t

So...since Hollywood has tossed the movie series into limbo I've had to resort to reading about my buddy Jason in book form. Now. Normally I'd look at a movie licenced book with a degree of untrust but this was good.

Carnival of Maniacs sees three goth teens head on out to Crystal Lake to find the remains of Jason Voorhees. One thing leads to another, haha, and before you know it Jason has found his way into the hands of a bunch of carnies who are dead set on using him as the main attraction in
