Horror on TV: Friday the 13th: The Series 2.15 “Better Off Dead” (dir by Armand Mastroianni)


Tonight, for our horror on the lens, we have the fifteenth episode of the 2nd season of Friday the 13th: The Series!

In this episode, a doctor uses a cursed syringe (agck!) to withdraw pieces of another person’s soul that he can give them to his daughter, who is extremely violent. Unfortunately, this usually lead to bad things for soul donors. This episode was directed by Armand Mastroianni, who also directed the classic 1980 slasher film, He Knows Your Alone. That was Tom Hanks’s first film so, without Armand Mastroianni, who knows who would have ended up starring in Captain Phillips?

This episode originally aired on February 18th, 1989.
