between these two chapters. Part 7 ends with Jason rotted, roasted and mostly unclothed being dragged through
a hole in the dock by John Shepard's ghost. Part 8 picked up with a much less rotted Jason (his Corey Feldman inflicted machette head wound and exposed bones have healed over) pinned beneath a sunken dock and sporting a brand new wardrobe including a Blue workshirt, Unionsuit, gray pants and a nifty set of Black leather gloves. Guess they thought nobody would notice. Well, we did. This novel clears up some of this. It picks up about two days after part 7, it does not take place in the late eighties and seems more modern, which makes sense since there were supposed to be some big jumps in time between parts 4-5-6-7. (hear that timeline makers) Jason is revived, still in his burned state, and quickly aquires a new mask and gloves. The rest of the book is an original story that is quite good. Arnopp takes into account the litle details that the producers of the movies overlooked. The ending doesnt tie directly in to part 8 but has Jason still on the loose
and leaves room for other adventures before he is finally sent back to the bottom of Christal Lake and his eventual siling trip on board the Lazaras.
So a couple of Moral crusaders go on a killing spree headed for crystal lake to try to join up with Jason, yeah o.k., you read how that comes out. I'll give you ten guesses but you're only going to need one. Beside the thin plot, and some stereo type characters the action in this book are fast, and at times very graphic. Watch out folks the body count is off the charts! The trade off between characters and situations are very smooth, Arnopp keeps the action going. This book did surprise me with a little bit of a twist near the end. The other thing I liked about this book was that not only did it pick up where movie #7 left of, it also eludes to what happens in the beginning of Jason goes to Hell. I would have given this book one more star for a perfect score, but some of the characters I thought were just a little to cheesy. Bottom Line....Highly entertaining!
In Hate-Kill-Repeat Jason Voorhees is dug out of his muddy grave at the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake by police divers. He immediately makes up for lost time, slicing, chopping, stabbing and disembowelling everyone he comes across. Rumours of his return appear in the papers and even though Camp Crystal Lake is closed by the police many choose to simply ignore the closure dismissing Jason as just a legendary tale of past generations. A massive hotel at the edge of the lake (although you do wonder why Jason has never visited here before since it just a short stroll from Camp Crystal summer camp) is also having a convention with workers and those staying there not expecting an uninvited guest. The hotel has two guests who aren't opposed to murder themselves, having left quite a trail of victims in their wake. They have extremely high morals and see themselves as professionals, two of the weapons of ridding America of its sin. They believe Jason to be a kindred spirit holding the same beliefs they do and that they will all team up together for their crusade. What they of course don't release is that compared to Jason they are really just amateurs at this game.
Although all the novels in this series vary greatly in topics and quality (some such as The Jason Strain deviate substantially from the usual format) they are all still good reads and anyone who is a fan of the great hockey mask wearing mass murderer will want to check them all out.
From the very first page, the book grabbed my attention. It is filled with fascinating characters, tense scenes and earth shaking terror. The plot is so twisted that the ending is a big surprise. Even if you don't particularly care for horror, the mystery of this one plus wondering how all this can possibly end will suck you in anyway.
