Yes I actually read the novelization of this film. I remember reading and then exclaiming “Wow, this character, his head got “severe + d.”” That’s how I pronounced it; severe with a “d”. My sister didn’t know what “severe + d’ meant, so she looked at he word. “Danny, that’s severed!” she said. (But it was a severe act, you have to admit.)
What do you think I thought of this book? Well, I got some Jason backstory I didn’t get elsewhere. But overall, it’s more fun to see teenagers get sliced to death that to read about such a phenomenon. Plus, the words didn’t jump out at me in 3D like the eyeballs did in the movie theater. Jason put some guy’s head in a vice (or was it a vice-like grip with his own two hands? I can’t remember), all that pressure and boing! His eyeball shot out and almost landed in my box of popcorn. That’s better than the book, doncha’ think?
