D4 THE NEWS JOURNAL " FRIDAY. JULY 28, 1989 Locale changes, but Jason is still the killer teens love By BOB THOMAS Associated Press LOS ANGELES Jason's been hanging out at that stupid lake for too long, the makers of the "Friday the 13th" series thought. So they decided to do something different in the latest installment of the slice-and-dice epic. Now the hockey-masked lad goes "wilding" in New York. "The biggest thing we could do with Jason," said Rob Hedden, writer-director of "Friday the 13th Part VIII Jason takes Manhattan," which opens today, "is to get him out of that stupid lake where he's been hanging out. "Crystal Lake he's been there for seven movies and I don't know how many years; he drowned there in 1950-something. We decided to really get him out of the lake." There were ideas about Jason's change of scene, Hedden said. "One was to get him on a cruise ship: Put him in the bowels of the ship with a little bit of 'Das Boot' and a little bit of 'Aliens,' with a claustrophobic feeling, storm at sea and that sort of stuff. "The other idea was to do a fish-out-of-water story and take him to a big city. There is really only one big city to do: New York. That was an easy decision. Then we decided, why not do both in one movie. And that's what we've done with 'Jason Takes Manhattan.' " And so the crazed killer of dumb teen-agers returns to add chills to the hot-weather box office. "Friday the 13th" has been ridiculed by critics, attacked by psychiatrists and scorned by the movie cognoscente. But it keeps rolling along, providing annual profits for Paramount Pictures as well as a television series. Hedden makes his feature debut as a director with "Friday VIII." He has been in the film business for a dozen years, having entered the Steven Spielberg way by climbing the wall at Universal Studios. He watched filming, made friends, got hired in the publicity department.

Part of Hedden's preparation for "Friday VIII" was reviewing all seven previous films more than once. "In the beginning, Jason was a small character in the overall movie," he said. "It was really Jason's mother who was the killer 1 J ... ; H j cM AP Fair to feature New Kids, Tiffany HARRINGTON The teen pop music combination of The New Kids on the Block and Tiffany will perform today at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. at the Delaware State Fair.

Then they brought Jason back to life to avenge his mother's death; she was killed by a counselor in the first movie. "In every movie he has changed a little, but he's basically a monster who kills teen-agers. In this one we spent some time really looking at Jason as a child; in fact, he appears as a child in the hallucination of one of the characters. You learn more about him and how he drowned accidentally and why he has been killing teen-agers and what his mission is to some degree." Another surprise in "Friday VIH": Jason speaks for the first time. Usually, a different actor plays Jason, but stuntman Kane Hod-der appears for the second time. "He brings such a personality to Jason; he breathes a certain way, he walks a certain way. We tried to double him a couple of times and it didn't work," Hedden said. Hedden shot the film in Vancouver and New York with a $5.5 million budget, large by "Friday the 13th" standards but minuscule by Hollywood's. The biggest thrill was filming in Times Square: "You could imagine what that would be like. Thousands of spectators, major crane shot seeing the whole 360-degree view of the place. "People were screaming, 'Jason, I love you!' A girl looks at Jason, played by Kane Hodder, gets down on her knees in the middle of Broadway. He points his finger and she faints right on the pavement." night. Admission is $3 for adults; children under 10 are admitted free.
