Hi there and good morning! Well, in case you don’t have a calendar nearby, today is June 13th! Today is also Friday, which means that it’s the luckiest day of the year! Not only is this the day when teenagers traditionally gather in the woods, smoke weed, have unprotected sex, and go skinny dipping but, for this year only, there is also going to be a full moon tonight!
(Okay, it’s not for this year only. In 2048, there will be another full moon on Friday the 13th…)
Now, I know what you’re thinking! Today would be the perfect day for us to review all of the films in the Friday the 13th film franchise!
Well, guess what?
We’ve already done it!
Back when this site was much younger and we were lucky to get even a 1,000 views a week, I reviewed every single Friday the 13th.
In honor tonight’s full moon, here are links to those reviews for those of you who might have missed them the first time around:
Friday the 13th, in which Mrs. Voorhees loses her head, Kevin Bacon gets an arrow through the neck, and I am forced to consider whether or not I would actually survive a horror movie.
Friday the 13th Part 2, in which the tone of all future sequels is set.
Friday the 13th Part 3, in which Jason gets a hockey mask and Dana Kimmel gets all of her friends killed for no particular reason.
Friday the 13th — The Final Chapter, in which the franchise hits its peak and we are forced to consider to just misleading a title can truly be.
Friday the 13th — A New Beginning, in which I go out on a limb to defend perhaps the most critically reviled entry in the entire franchise.
Friday the 13th — Jason Lives, in which God gets involved.
Friday the 13th — The New Blood, in which Jason gets his ass kicked by a girl and you know what? It’s about time!
Friday the 13th — Jason Takes Manhattan, in which Jason eventually reaches New York and discovers that it looks a lot like Canada.
Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, in which the already frail continuity established by the 8 previous movies is totally and thoroughly destroyed.
Jason X, in which Jason goes into space.
Freddy vs. Jason, in which Jason vs. Freddy.
Friday the 13th: The Remake, in which we get yet another oddly bland horror remake.
In Conclusion: 10 Final Thoughts on Friday the 13th, in which things conclude.
But even more importantly, have a good and safe Friday the 13th. If you must go skinny dipping, be sure to take a friend.
