Monster Movie Podcast – Episode 64 – Friday the 13th (1980)

Join us this week as we face down one wickedly sick Momma Voorhees in the granddaddy of all slasher films, Friday the 13th (1980). Camp Crystal Lake has attracted a new group of camp counselors to resurrect the grounds long closed after a series of horrific murders and given the nickname Camp Blood. Unbeknownst to them the killer still lurks in the woods and begins killing them off one by one.

Sean S. Cunningham’s simply plotted but intensely paced gory shocker with FX work from Tom Savini changed the face of horror films starting the slasher craze only hinted at from its inspiration, Halloween (1978).

“Kill her, Mommy! Kill her! Don’t let her get away, Mommy! Don’t let her live!”
” I won’t, Jason.  I won’t!”
