Bacon/Palmer/King/Crosby ~ Friday The 13th

This splatter flick, along with John Carpenter's Halloween, helped spawn the great horror-movie movement of the '80s, not to mention eight sequels, many of which had nothing to do with the films that preceded them. It also gave birth to Jason Voorhees, one of the three biggest horror-movie psychos of the modern era (the other two being Halloween's Michael Myers and A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger). Forever duplicated, the original Friday the 13th popularized a number of themes and techniques that today are now clichés: the increasingly gory murders, the remote forest location, the anonymous and nubile cast, the murderer as cult hero, and, of course, the moral that if you have sex, you will die, very painfully. Still, if you have to see a Friday the 13th movie, this is the one to check out. A group of eager (and horny) teenagers decide to reopen Camp Crystal Lake, which 20 years earlier was closed after the shocking and mysterious murders of two amorous camp counselors. You can take it from there, as the teens get picked off one by one, during a dark and stormy night; of course, their car won't start and there's no phone. The ending stole shamelessly from Brian De Palma's Carrie, but it still provides a slight if campy shock. Look for a young Kevin Bacon as the requisite stud--you can tell that's what he is because when the cast appears in swimsuits, he's wearing a Speedo--who's the beneficiary of the film's best murder sequence, an arrowhead to the throat. Right after having sex, of course. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Director: Sean S. Cunningham
Cast: Betsy Palmer, Adrienne King, Harry Crosby, Kevin Bacon.
Running Time: 95 minutes.
Rated R for violence, gore, language, and mild sexual situations.
One of the more influential slasher films of all time, "Friday the 13th" was one of the few in the series that was moderately scary, used specific camera positioning and foreground for its scares, and possessed a fairly intelligent script. A group of camp counselors are looking forward to their work at Crystal Lake campsite, only to hear the warnings from townies that they are in severe danger and that they should leave immediately. Ignoring these threats, the teenagers live life as if they are no worries.
Their attitudes change when a maniac killer starts to knock off all of the counselors, each in a gory fashion one-by-one. Adrienne King is the main scream queen, running around the camp finding dead bodies all over and finally encountering the killer and learns the truth of the systematic murder spree. Excellent special effects by master Tom Savini and a tense, dramatic musical score, yet the performances are fairly laughable and the plot gets old quickly (which obviously means they should make nine more sequels!). The final scene is absolutely terrifying! Not one of the best, but still important to the genre.

i have no doubt that if i had seen this when it first came out in
1980,it would have scared the crap out of the present day
though,i didn't find it scary,mainly because i have seen so many
horror/slasher movies since then.this movie is hardly graphic or
shocking at all compare to today's feature film,and even some TV
shows,for that matter.however,i will say really enjoyed the musical
score by Henry Manfredini,who must have been influenced strongly by
Bernard Herman,who scored Psycho.i believe Kevin bacon makes his big
screen debut here,but i could be wrong.the acting for this type of
movie is fine,although i have to single out Betsy Palmer for really
standing out.this movie spawned,i believe,10 sequels,all differing in vote for Friday the 13th is a 3/5

"Friday the 13th", it's John Carpenter's classic "Halloween" in the country, or more precisely in a vacation camp for teenagers. It's easier to shoot a little horror film in a desert place than in Los Angeles (yes, actually, "Halloween" was shot in Los Angeles). You take a group of young, horny characters searching for some chilling and strong emotions, coming (on purpose?) in a desert, isolated, frightening, cursed place with a past and reputation, closed by the authorities because of some tragic events which occured in this very place, many years before. This is stupid and very, too predictible. You're at once able to guess that in the end all the characters will die... except one woman, like in some classic American horror movies released a little time before ("Halloween", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" or "Alien"...).
Take the whole plot of "Halloween" (a group of young people, a lonesome, hiding serial killer with a mask - here the one of an ice-hockey player, which isn't difficult to find -, a forest to set a so-called 'atmosphere' - in "Halloween", Michael Myers uses the trees and other thick plants in order to stay out of sight -, and a stupid opened ending - 'So he's still over there!'), put much more blood and violence in it ('gore' scenes like decapitations, cut throats...) and you got a picture (a copy, but still a picture), not good at all but able to get the same financial success as "Halloween"'s. This is really the essential, the main thing, no matter the quality, the actors and the makers (if we know everything about Carpenter, we don't know nothing about Sean S. Cunningham and we don't care about the screenwriter); when you leave the theater or stop the tape recorder, you don't have the feeling that you just watched an unforgettable film.

Plot summary:
When two romancing camp counsellors are savagely slain by the hands of an unseen killer one late night, Camp Crystal Lake is immediately shuttered for the safety of others. But now, twenty years later, when an ambitious man by the name of Steve Christy prepares to reopen the campgrounds with the help of several young counsellors despite grave warnings of a "death curse" by local residents (and a previous fire which burnt down the camp, as well as a deadly contamination with the water), the killings start again. On the dreaded day and date that is Friday June the 13th, the curse proves true, as one-by-one each of the counsellors is attacked and savagely slain by the very hands responsible for the death of the first two back in the year of nineteen fifty-eight...just a year after the death of a young disadvantaged boy who drowned in the murky waters of Camp Crystal Lake due to the negligence of...romancing camp counsellors. Friday the 13th will never be the same...not after watching this movie-not after watching Friday the 13th.
The lowdown:
I am like the biggest Friday the 13th fan ever-this I am sure of. I mean, I'm the sort of fan who'd, on eBay, bid on every single solitary thing that has to do with the series if I wouldn't get robbed of my money so much (damn, I want those uncut versions!). I'm the sort of fan whose immediate thoughts when heading up to camp for a weeks vacation with family and friends would be of the series before even arriving, for that matter. I'm the sort of fan who, when at camp, would get so carried away with my video camera recording all those wonderful sceneries nature has to offer, that I would take it as though I was making a movie than a home video.
