Low Budget Modern Horror Classic
The film that really created the slasher sub-genre of horror. While slasher films did exist before Friday the 13th, it wasn't until this movie that they became an actual sub-genre. This film's influence upon modern horror cinema continues today. Movies like My Bloody Valentine, The Burning, The Prowler, Slumber Party massacre, Sleepaway Camp, Scream and countless others wouln't exist otherwise.
The simple and highly effective premise of a maniac killing people in a remote location is a staple of horror. Mario Bava's Bay of Blood aka Twitch of the Death Nerve and John Carpenter's Halloween r the two films Friday has the most in common with. What Friday did was take this premise and use the best Make-Up EFX artist working at that time (Tom Savini) to create unique and memorable deaths.
