Some more foreign greatness from Brandon Middleton. Today it is an Argentinian PAL VHS of Friday the 13th (1980). The tagline is a piece of broken-English greatness: "Beg Just Be a Nightmare."
At any rate, I really dig this VHS cover art.

Actually, this is/was a filmed on-screen death for Shelly that was deleted as a request from the MPAA. If you notice in the pic, Shelly is on the porch, by the Kitchen entrance as he was on-screen in his final appearence when he bursts through the back door to seek help. That hand you are referring to is Jason's bloody hand coming back from around Shelly's chest. Up in the right hand corner is a bird's-eye-view of the TOP of Jason's hockey mask...See the nose? This is after he drags Shelly's body to the back door, from the barn to leave him for dead, then Jason, swiftly runs back to the barn. That is what the noises were that Chili hears before she opens the door to discover Shelly's next "prank". I know this because I have a finished "daily" copy for Friday Part 3 before they shipped it to the MPAA.
Here is a synopsis of the episode The Gift; sounds like a winner.James, a daydreamer and photographer, must learn to cope with life as his father moves the family from Oregon to Boston MA. Though there is much humor here, the series dealt with many serious problems (teenage alcoholism, virginity, pregnancy, venereal disease).
James looks forward to his upcoming 16th birthday and hopes to get a car as a gift. His uncle decides to give him a night with a call-girl instead. Shunning that situation, James falls in love with a Swedish foreign exchange student and loses his virginity.
