    "One of the most popular horror movies of all time, a cult classic and instantly recognizable both for the theme and the name. The story follows a bunch of camp goers and counsellors who are readying a cursed and abandoned camp property for reopening. In true slasher movie style, the characters are terrorized by an unknown and unidentified killer and the body count starts piling right away. This movie has been highly rated for being very original."

I don't like too many horror films, but the classic are still very enjoyable to watch form time to time. Definitely worth seeing if you have never before!"

    "The Granddaddy of slasher horror movies is Friday the 13th and helped launch a much abused genre that have delighted fans for decades after it premiered. Jason is the hockey-masked slasher out to get the dim-witted teens and scare the bejeesus out of movie-goers."

    "I just love how sadistic and brutal Jason Voorhees is just like Michael Myers is from the Halloween movies. The resemblance is really there that's why if you love the Halloween franchise then this series is a must-watch"

    "Friday the 13th is the one that started them all and still holds up as a great slasher movie. Many other movies have copied its plot line but not done it as well. Definitely worth a watch."
