Even as a dyed-in-the-wool lover of slasher films I hesitate to use the word "culture" in this thread, but I've noticed a few other examples lately that suggest that "shared culture" is largely a thing of the past. It seems to start and stop with Twitter, and there, we are largely in control of what we digest -- echo chamber effect, etc.

At the very least, the half-life of cultural artifacts seems to have dwindled. As in, this is significant, we acknowledge that it exists. I can bring it up in conversation without having to launch into a five minute explanation of its significance.

I was in a room filled with grade twelve English students a couple of weeks ago, presumably en route to some kind of university next year, and no one had heard of War and Peace. Heard of it -- as in, some big, boring, Russian novel. That was all I was looking for.

So I suppose "one of those masked killers from the 80s" doesn't have much of a chance.

I agree with what you say. It's also possible you have that one aware student that knows of War And Peace but doesn't say anything. I remember in school that I knew a lot of references to things that the teacher talked about but didn't say anything as I felt school was like an interrogation room and I wasn't going to let them know what I knew.
"I'm just another dumb student, ya see. Now get me out of here."

I take your point. It was a pretty laid back class though.

I've brought the F13 movies up to a couple of young people where I work (18-20 years old) and it's always the same conversation; they saw the remake and wanted to check out the older ones. One thing that caught me by surprise though was that I mentioned part 7 to one person and they said "they made 7 of them??" I remember in the 80's if you brought them up, there was a 100% chance the other person would say how there are so many of them and they just keep making them. That's lost now I guess.

Have you looked at the "best blu-ray deals" banner lately?

It's an awesome Jason mask for the price. It's a hard resin mask, as opposed to the rubber masks that are often sold for the price.
Here is the Amazon link.

Only $5.95 for that mask? That is an awesome deal.

I've been itching to get the Friday the 13th, Halloween (Complete Collection), and A Nightmare on Elm Street sets for a long time.
Even remembered my friends and I used to rent them on VHS and Laserdisc back in the day and have horror film watching parties. Never got around to watching Freddy vs. Jason though and I thought Jason X was very mediocre. I do highly enjoy the first few movies with the main antagonists though, some I haven't seen in over a decade or way longer.
Will be happy to revisit these movies again. Oh and the F13 and ANoES remakes were I'll leave them but don't mind them in the set. Never got around to watching the Rob Zombie Halloween movies.
