Friday the 13th (1980)

1980 Horror, Mystery

User Score: 78/100


A group of camp counselors is stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which, years before, was the site of a child's drowning.

This box office hit by Sean Cunningham (producer, writer, director) set a trend for countless immitations and was followed by seven sequels (all starring Jason Vorhees). Camp Crystal lake is getting ready to open for the season when it’s couselors begin getting knocked off one by one. The murder scenes are great as no two deaths are alike (The great Tom Savini worked on this movie). Bloody, violent, and full of scares, Friday the 13th was the first in one of the most popular horror series ever made. Definately worth owning.
