FRIDAY THE 13th (1980)

What can you say about this one? The one that started the whole stupid series. Doesn't work as a mystery at all since we never even meet the killer until the very end but it does set the template for a whole load of maniac-slasher-in-the-woods movies to follow. This one works better than any of the sequels(and certainly better than the ass-backwards remake) in at least keeping one foot in reality. Betsy Palmer does an awesome job as a kooky nutty lady and Jason doesn't even exist outside of a dream sequence. Kevin Bacon's greatest role? Could be.
