Friday The 13th

Okay we got a true double feature today. I don't know why I said double feature before and it didn't take place on the same day, so we are fixing that now. So double feature today of two of the greatest horror movies ever made, starting the careers of two titans of horror.

Friday The 13th is the movie that started it all, started the slasher genre in the form that we know and love today. Now I know some of you might be saying, well Halloween really started it all off in 1978 but Friday The 13th got the formula down on how slasher movies are made and we still use that formula to this very day. And I think it's time you see this movie again because there is some interesting things in the first movie that you may have forgot. Even if you never saw the first movie you know the plot, teenagers go to Camp Crystal Lake, into the woods and they don't come out. The special effects done by Tom Savini are outstanding and look realistic, I don't know how he did it all but the man deserves awards. Also I'm trying to remember if he did all the special effects for the future movies, at least until part 9. Honestly what can I say about this movie that hasn't already been said? Just go and watch it. It's a great horror movie.
