It's that time of the year again! The Season of the Witch (wait, that's a different slasher franchise). IF you don't know, Halloween is my favorite holiday and I'm a big fan of horror movies. Last year I made a Valve homage to one my favorite horror movies/posters ever: The Evil Dead. This year we're tackling another famous horror poster: Friday the 13th.
Directed by Sean S. Cunningham in 1980, the first movie follows a group of horny teens systematically killed by Mrs. Voorhees, with her son Jason taking up the reigns in the following ten sequels.
Now It'd be lying if I said Friday the 13th is my favorite slasher. I prefer Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street (see J-Man's take on Nightmare's poster), but I do find the series enjoyable. While Freddy is the most sadistic and Meyers is the creepiest, Jason is the most relentless killer in horror. He's almost a force of nature that can't be stopped by mortal means and it's always a treat to see him work ( Not that I like seeing people die.....)
I don't really have specific recommendations for the Friday series. I suggest watching Friday the 13th 1-4, as they feel like a complete story and tone. Then maybe give the others a shot. Just know that 5 onward gets weird with resurrections, goofball comedy, psychics, space, and NEW YORK CITY, BABY!
