Friday the 13th (1980) Deep Dive

We are taking a deep dive into Friday the 13th (1980), the American slasher film written by Victor Miller and directed by Sean S. Cunningham starring Kevin Bacon, Betsy Palmer, and Harry Crosby. We are introduced to Jason Voorhees and see how far a mother will go for the love of her son.

In the fall of 1979, a group of unknown actors, a director desperate for a hit, and a special effects visionary got together in the woods of New Jersey to create the stuff of legend. Friday the 13th was supposed to be a simple exercise in good movie business, a film that would make money thanks to clever manipulation of the horror genre and some gory scares. Instead, it became a watershed moment in horror film-making, a landmark that has inspired countless imitators and nearly a dozen sequels.
