Friday the 13th

Just in case you can't keep your slasher films straight the Friday the 13th movies are commonly called "Jason" films; named after Jason, the killer in 7 of the 9 movies. I know what some of you are thinking. How can anybody actually construct a set of pages devoted to a low rent series of 1980s slasher films? The answer is simple. They're fun. Braveheart they ain't; but if you're into gratuitous gore, T&A, cheesy dialogue, and improbable plot developments these films are for you.

Friday the 13th (1980) was produced independently for a budget of $700,000. The distribution rights were picked up by Paramount Pictures. Friday was one of the biggest money makers of the year. Paramount immediately began work on a sequel. The sequel was a hit. Paramount kept going for the rest of the decade. By 1989 (just 9 years later) they had made a total of 8 Friday the 13th movies. Since the popularity of horror movies was ending Paramount sold the rights to New Line Cinema. In 1993 New Line made a ninth Friday movie, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Because Scream made the horror genre popular again New Line is working on Freddy vs Jason which will team Jason up with A Nightmare on Elm Street icon Freddy Kruger
