(May 12, 2014)

The Spring of '84: Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(April 13, 2014)
Let's start out by addressing the most notable thing about Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter: it isn't a "final" anything. Sure, it's easy to point that out now, with a good half-dozen more entries in place (plus assorted outliers). But in point of fact t
