Some horror franchises are the story of a relatively strong film followed by cash-in sequels of little, often declining value. But that initial movie retains some quality. HALLOWEEN is an obvious example. This, though - the most well-known, longest-lasting horror franchise in cinema - is an exception; started very bad, stayed very bad. The practical effects are good but not very interesting, and in this context not very effective. The first Sean Cunningham film I have ranked and reviewed here.

Cunningham made this to rip off Halloween. Ironic, because compared to Parts II - VIII the original Friday the 13th feels akin to Italian rip-offs of the series. No money to spend on bulky stuntmen to play a Jason clone? Hire the director's aunt to play the killer! The first half's a series of disconnected teen comedy scenes, as though the writer and director forgot horror movies scare instead of amuse. The third act's filled with solid tension, and gore effects by Savini offer a tasteful treat.

Some may say (incorrectly) the seminal film in the teen slasher genre. Although Friday The 13th's legacy in the film industry cannot be denied. Its beyond average and totally forgettable. Thankfully Kevin Bacon found work after this one.

I have seen this movie a few times, and I am always surprised at how successful it is at scaring me. I am unsure of the reason, but during this viewing I think it might be the atmosphere. Every time I watch this movie, I replay the final scene at least once. I’m curious to find out how the whole hockey mask wearing Jason is started from this

A fun killer reveal and what must be regarded as an absolute classic final scare, but alas, I am not a horror fan, plus I didn't see this back in the day, I saw it in 2017 for the first time, so I wouldn't recommend it.

From the aftershocks of "Halloween"(1978) slasher films sprouted like weeds into the 80's. However, Sean S. Cunningham's low-rent 80's slasher bloomed into one of the most iconic horror film franchises ever. Although despite its longevity, the series isn't quite renowned for its quality, and this first movie was no exception. Tom Savini's effects are noteworthy, but little else. The original, as well as the sequels, helped established all the tropes that make these movies feel dated and cliche.

This is pretty amateurish, but of course it is. We're talking about what boils down to a bunch of kids making a weird slasher flick before the genre caught fire. Interesting camerawork choices. It feels a little like a student film. And it's super dated and pretty bad on a surface level, but here's what won me over: the scene where Bill goes to check the generator late in the film. Stationary shot, tension is high, and it takes FOREVER. Anxiety just ramps up and up. Very deliberate and fun.

Friday The 13th is commonly viewed as little more than a Halloween clone, but it's arguably closer in style to Bay of Blood with its emphasis on gore and over the top (for its time) kills. Compared to Bava, Cunningham is a complete hack, yet Friday The 13th effectively employs a documentary like aesthetic that heightens the tension and makes great use of its atmospheric setting. The iconic score is chilling, but the film is too amateurish and silly to leave a truly lasting impression.

One of the first slashers and one of the most entertaining among them. Its characters are surprisingly fun and its twists and final scare are bonafide classics.

(2016 Jasonthon #1:) Unlike fellow horror series Halloween, Exorcist, Psycho, Elm Street, Alien, Scream, etc. which all had solid starts regardless of how bad they got, this series is pretty much crap from the word go. Repetitive kills, little tension, often amateurish acting, poor pacing, a pure shit musical score that is just noise, about 3 seconds of nudity, and a laughable final encounter make for a movie that really hasn't aged well at all. Do yourself a favor, rewatch Halloween instead.
