Friday the 13th

0 commentsSince July 26, 2007

When Camp Crystal Lake, or as the towns folk call it “Camp Blood”, is reopening for children to come and enjoy a summer full of fun, it’s in need of some counselors and a ton of repairs.

Everyone warns them about reopening the camp, with what happened, how could you want to? After all of the scary stories, the fact that there is a full moon and it’s Friday the 13th, you wouldn’t think anyone would bother. But these positive, persistent kids have dreams for Camp Crystal Lake.

They better be careful though or else they’ll just become another spooky campfire story!

This might just be me, but maybe a rain slicker would've been a good idea?

Friday the 13th is everything you'd think it is. A Campy (if you pardon the pun) fun slasher movie. However, there is something different about it. With special effects by master Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead) you knew that it had a wake of it's own to make in the horror lake.

One of my favorite things about Friday the 13th is the music. It's calling card for scary jumps and eerie strings is a perfect fit and it really set a course for other films after it.

The pacing is also very good. It never seems to drag because you're thrown in a death scene very early in the movie and the rest of the time, you're just waiting for the next one until finally you reach the surprising climatic ending. The gore and effects were amazing for their time as well and really add to the death scenes in a way that most movies could only dream of back in 1980. However, nothing should be overbearing for the casual movie watcher either. It's a very good blend.

Would you believe that this dog is actually the killer? Me either...

The acting is predictable but it's pretty good considering the B status of Friday the 13th. It even features a young Kevin Bacon! I mean, it's not only Kevin Bacons first movie but his first gratuitous sex scene and first gratuitous ass shot! Yowza, what a combo!

I can’t include some of the best quotes and of course thee best scene in the movie due to the possibility of spoiling the movies ending, in fact I pretty much couldn’t use anything from the last 25 minutes of the movie due to the fact. So, you’re just going to have to watch Friday the 13th for yourself!

It’s been over 25 years since the original Friday the 13th came out and watching it today still proves it to be a really good scare!

Sleepaway Camp

When summer comes, every kid knows what happens, (At least in the 70’s and 80’s) it’s time to go to summer camp! The kids at Camp Arawak however, have no idea what’s about to hit them this year.

After Ricky and Angela are taken to camp, nothing seems to be quite like it used to be. Old friends and girlfriends have changed as well as the amount of kids attending this year. Kids are even mysteriously dying this year, leaving even fewer kids for ball games and socials.

Will Ricky and Angela survive the summer?

Would you beleive that this guy becomes head chef? Yeesh!

Sleepaway Camp is your typical summer camp, slasher movie. Lots of kids, lots of sexual tension and so on and so forth. Everything is in place for you to predict what happens in this movie. Or is it?

Sleepaway Camp has all of the cliche trademarks of a slasher film; except for the ending. It will totally catch you off guard and from what I've seen from peoples reactions, scare the shit out of you.

So what happens? You'll have to watch it to find out.

Death by the tiolet...

Other than the ending, the name of the movie itself tells you a lot about it. It's pretty boring in between death scenes and there isn't a lot of new direction in those scenes. They just beat the same dead-horse-story-elements through the whole movie until the climax. Girl gets picked on. Girl gets picked on. Boy gets picked on. Boy is denied sex. Boy calls girl a bitch. It's enough to put you to sleep.

Another credit I have to give to Sleepaway is its creativeness in the Death scene department. There are a few that are very creative and seemingly new. Questionably creative is another way to put it, when you see a kid trapped in a bathroom stall die from a bee hive (See Video Below). Where did that idea com from? Then there are others that are boring and used though, Shower Death, Lake Death etc...

The acting is below average and it's no surprise. When you're watching most of these people interact and talk, you really start to think "Wow, Friday the 13th really spoiled me..."

Regardless, This movie is worth watching at least once for the ending. It's not a choice cut by any means but it will really pull you in from all of the drab, boring scenes and for some, it may even drive you away.
