Friday the 13th Movie Reviews

Friday the 13th Movie ReviewsThe new Friday the 13th movie comes to theaters this Friday, just in time for Valentine’s Day. From the director of the surprisingly good Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, the movie is destined to be the best of the franchise, even if by default. After all, let’s face it: the Friday the 13th series is terrible. Compared to all of the other big horror franchises such as Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween, this series is C-grade garbage.

Of course, that didn’t stop me from watching the first three movies over the weekend. Why?

  • Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
    Having just received the first three Friday the 13th movies in the mail the other day, it didn’t take me long to start watching them. In fact, about five minutes after I finished the first movie, I went right onto the second, eager for some Jason goodness. Of course, ‘Jason goodness’ is relative, given that Friday the 13th is one of the worst horror franchises on the market. More…
  • Friday the 13th Part III: In 3D (1982)
    The wonderful director who made Friday the 13th Part 2 returns to direct Friday the 13th Part 3: 3-D. Unfortunately, he didn’t learn from his mistakes and Part 3 is shockingly worse than the last one. More…
