Friday the 13th: The Jason Strain Reviews
As has been the case with every one of the Friday the 13th novels in this series, the novel had a stronger story than any of the movies.Now, one thing I will point out about this novel was the lack of Jason. Jason probably was in less than a 1/4 of the book. However, the story was still strong without him. There's a tv show where death row inmates battle to the death and the winner goes free. Of course that story has been told before, but in this case they throw Jason in for good measure. However, the story only starts there. There are so many twist and turns the novel turns into something totally different.To add to the story, a wealthy billionaire is searching for immortality. Hearing the story of Jason, he thinks something in his DNA may hold the secret. So they snatch Jason away from the TV show producers and attempt an experiment. Unfortunately, all they do is create a rampaging "Jason Virus" that turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. At first I was turned off by the zombie aspect, but the story was so engrossing that even as a straight zombie novel it would have been entertaining. There's an underwater sequence that was very gripping.Overall this was a surprisingly good novel, and if you are a fan of the Friday the 13th movies you should enjoy it. Honestly, even if you aren't a fan of the series, but you enjoy a good horror novel, this one may be for you.Oh, and also, you get Jason vs. a shark. Enough said!
I got to say that I'm not a big fan of zombie novels and movies but I did enjoy this 4th book in the Friday the 13th Black Flame series. I felt the author did a much better job with this book than she did with the 2nd Nightmare on Elm Street book (also a Black Flame novel).Jason is in this story much less than the previous three books in the series, but I felt the story itself was good. The two main characters were developed well.Jason is captured and released in Costa Rica as part of a publicity stunt to increase ratings on the second season of a reality show where several men and women on death row are granted a chance to kill all others on the show for an award of life in a more comfortable prison if they are the last one standing.From there the story takes several twists and turns all over the island. A love story is also ironically weaved into the plot as well.Die hard Jason fans will certainly feel Jason is lacking in the majority of the book, but the story itself still makes it a good read on my opinion.
Fun, pulpy, bloody action with Jason and zombies and sharks! Is there anything left to be said?
The sociopathic producer of the reality series Xtreme Elimination (a show in which a collection of death row inmates fight to the death, the lone survivor winning freedom) decides to up the ante in the second season by adding female inmates to the mix.Wait, there's more!Said producer also captures and unleashes Jason Voorhees upon the gathered inmates, who are all trapped on a small island off the coast of Costa Rica.Hold on, there's even more!A mad scientist seeking the genetic key to immortality abducts Jason and attempts to splice his indestructible DNA into her life expanding serum. The result is not an immortality serum, though. Instead a virulent rage virus, one that turns the infected into impervious killing machines, breaks out and spreads across Costa Rica like wildfire.Christa Faust takes Friday the 13th and mixes it with liberal splashes of The Most Dangerous Game, Jurassic Park, and 28 Days Later for an utterly bonkers reading experience. I am not kidding when I tell you that something weird and wacky happens every other page, because Faust is willing and unafraid to keep upping the apocalyptic ante, right to the utmost peak of joyful absurdity. It was impossible for me to figure out just where the hell this book was going to go. Lovers of pulp fiction and Grindhouse movies should give this a guilty pleasure a try.
I think Faust put literally everything into this book. Just awesome, perfect October read. Damn.
a book that read just like a crappy ass horror movies these days. Jason on an island with a reality show, lame!
