Friday The 13th (1980) – Revisited

I’m revisiting this one, though I wrote a post about it some time ago. Apprently it made the list of 101 Horror Movies, so I thought I would reexamine it in the context of all that had gone before it. Much like Halloween before it, it full on embraces the stalker/slasher films that permeated the…
