This was one of the first horror movies I grew up watching to I do love it as a classic.

I'm sure you've all seen it, so y'all know the drill - a group of unlucky teens hired to renovate a decrepit summer camp all meet grisly fates one by one on a fateful Friday evening.

Once this flick hit the drive-in circuit in 1980, American horror cinema was never quite the same again.

The original "Friday" is often dismissed as a mere "Halloween" ripoff but I've always liked "F13" better, it's way more violent and mean spirited. The formula is well worn and thoroughly run into the ground now, of course, but in 1980 this was a groundbreaking shocker and it still holds up pretty well today.

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.
