Friday the 13th (1980)

Friday the 13th (1980)(78) There’s no denying the impact of Friday the 13th, but its origin as a cash-in on the ‘80s slasher craze is obvious. Challenging few genre conventions, it plays like a track list of horror hit-singles. Screenwriter Victor Miller forgoes a proper narrative to propel the bloodbath forward, instead dropping one excuse after another for characters to wander off alone. To the film’s credit, its goofy cast of expendables are fun to watch, and the soundtrack is cheesy perfection.
