Friday the 13th :- Watch Friday the 13th on Youtube on Fire, A group of camp counselors is stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which, years before, was the site of a child’s drowning. One summer at Camp Crystal Lake, a group of young counselors begin to get ready to lead campers. Unfortunately for the former, someone isn’t happy about what’s going on in the camp and enjoys playing kill the counselor. As bodies fall to the ground in the camp, no one is safe.A group of camp counselors, a young Kevin Bacon among them, are busy trying to re-open Camp Crystal Lake years after multiple murders shut it down, despite the ravings of Crazy Ralph. They are dispatched one by one by an unseen killer. This IS a classic and always will be. Don’t get me wrong as it’s not perfect. But it’s far from “merely a Halloween” clone which some people say. The original Halloween is a perfect classic, but let this film stand on it’s own legs as it has every right to. Although I’m saddened about how shoddily Paramount seemed to put out their recent box set. Hell when New Line acquired the rights to the series, yes their Jason films suck, but at least they do right by the fans DVD-wise.Paramount could have done a great service to us by looking back at New Lin’s Nightmare on Elm Street box set. It’s a shame they didn’t.Without this film, Scream’s Randy would have never uttered those famous words, ‘There are certain rules to surviving a horror movie..’ This film combined with Carpenter’s Halloween, firmly etched the rules in stone. The creepy music, the infamous “ch-ch-ch-ha-ha-ha”, the crude photography and the graphic depiction of the murders of the counsellors all blend together to give a classic piece of film history.
