Day One of the Two-Week Torturefest
The Idea: a mashup between Friday the 13th and Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Tagline: “Always look on the bright side of death.” (yes, I know, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” is from Monty Python’s Life of Brian)
The Plot: Masked killer Jason Voorhees gets bored of Camp Crystal Lake and begins attacking his next betrayers. This is England, specifically the comedy troupe Monty Python. Jason, we are told, grew up in a family that loved Monty Python; whenever the family would watch Flying Circus or any of the “bad boys'” filmography, poor four-year-old Jason was subjected to repeated uproars of laughter, which led to chronic migraines in his undead years.
– John Cleese (surrounded by several human cadavers): “Ha! I’m not dead yet!”
– Jason Voorhees (appearing out from the shadows): “You will be soon.”
TOMORROW, ON TORTUREFEST…
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never – NEVER.
