Friday the 13th (1980)


Director: Sean S. Cunningham

Writer: Victor Miller

Believe it or not I have gone 27 years and have only seen two Friday the 13th movies before this, Jason X and the Friday the 13th remake.  Well I aim to change that!  So I watched Friday the 13th on Friday the 13th!  Novel!

Anyway the movie itself is OK.  Most of it is kids just kind of hanging around and then most of the killings are in the last half hour or so.  I wasn’t expecting greatness but I frequently wonder how movies like this catch on so huge.  Like total there are 12 movies from the series (original 10 plus the remake and Freddy vs. Jason) and based on this one movie I wouldn’t have guessed it.  But I am going to plow through and watch them all!  Curious to see how they bring Jason into it.
