  1. Arf's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    avendo sempre visto i remake degli anni 2000 questo primo Venerdì 13 mi ha notevolmente stupito. 3.5

  2. Rocco's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    A thoroughly middling film aside from the final fifteen or so minutes. Betsy Palmer swings for the fences and truly does so much with precious little screen time. If it weren't for her Pamela Voorhees, the Jason we all know and love would have remained at the bottom of that lake.

  3. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Friday the 13th

    2.5? Haven't seen since I was a kid. Actually pretty refreshing-- the last chapter is both psychotic and beautiful. And frankly, I'm happy camping for days...

  4. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    Hard to evaluate but if you remove the 'exploitation' bits (sex, violence, gore) it's still an interesting film...evocative and even poetic in some parts. The scene where Marcie describes her dream is kind of incredible, like something out of Jean Rollin or John Sayles.

  5. Charlie Boisvert's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    Doublé en français, c'est meilleur !!!!

  6. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    The only film that I wax a nostalgia too, as it ignited my obsession with both horror and the entire artistic medium as more than a passive watcher. Sure, it's pretty lousy when I watch it now with a more refined taste (it's basically the first horror film to take on the repetitive mechanics of a porno,) but it showed my 8th-grade self that a film can shun being family friendly. That was mindblowing.

  7. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    An effectively staged shooting gallery with it's sitting (when not fornicating) ducks knocked off one-by-one for their immoral transgressions. Although a coarsening of the format set by Halloween, it's a diverting piece of hokum. As with much horror these films tend to pale by association with what followed but this 'original' (series position, if not imagination) does exactly what it says on the tin with slick skill

  8. Fabiha's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    “It’s not bad enough to have Friday the 13th, we’ve got to have a full moon, too. We keep statistics. We have more accidents, more rapes, more robberies, more homicides, more of everything when there’s a full moon. It upsets people. Makes them nuts.”

  9. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    I'll be the first to admit that this is a flawed film... The first time I watched it I didn't enjoy it at all. I just didn't see what all the fuss was about. However, as the years went by I found that I kept coming back to it. Something about it stuck with me. I decided to give it another chance and it slowly began to grow on me! Now it's one of my favorite horror films and I am obsessed with the franchise!

  10. Daniela's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    they trolled so hard with the boy popping out of the water like that

  11. Zach Closs's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    Packed with expendable idiots, no doubt, but also surprisingly atmospheric, raw and taut at 95 minutes. There's a documentary-style feel to the proceedings and an eerie sense of discovery to Camp Crystal Lake and its authentic, weary denizens that kept me glued to the screen throughout. The score is also a winner and Tom Savini's gore effects have aged beautifully.

  12. Steve G.'s rating of the film Friday the 13th

    Imagine how many sequels we would have got if this had actually been good.

  13. ceknklsn's rating of the film Friday the 13th

  14. pepoire's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    I HAVE SEEN THAT FINAL SCARE SO MANY TIMES IN OTHER MOVIES BUT WHEN I ACTUALLY SAW IT IN THIS ONE IT SUDDENLY FREAKED ME THE FUCK OUT, how is this?? Anyway, Jason's mum is the best part of the movie, and another interesting thing I learned was that Kevin Bacon might be a good kisser.

  15. James Mackin's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    Tom Savini made some inventive effects. Plus, I love talking to people who claim to love the series, but have no clue that the killer in this one was Jason's mother (it happens more often than you think).

  16. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    I liked this as a kid but rewatching this was a pretty tedious and boring experience. The score is what keeps things afloat and one or two scenes that work well. Otherwise both the writing and acting is very poor and compared to classics like Halloween and Elm Street this comes off as very inept. When Mrs Vorhees turns up the movie gains some momentum but then it is almost too late. Close to one star...

  17. James Roth's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    It's easy to be cynical about films of this nature but they're so much fun, I don't see the point. It had a claustrophobic, hopeless feeling to the whole thing and a good backstory for the killings and even though I knew the end scare was coming it got me good. Overall, I really enjoyed this and am wondering about the sequels...

  20. Andre Flickatina's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    love the long uncut shots, they had a great set for it and it added alot of suspense. the soundtrack and special effects were spot on, and not showing the killer made it a nice mystery to start the series.

  21. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    This really is just a classic, I absolutely love it.

  22. Janae's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    Almost gave it five. Really it's 4.5. Let's be real.

  23. JackButcher's rating of the film Friday the 13th

    The original, but by far doesn't define what the series is.
