Topic: Friday the 13th

Two months after the conclusion of Friday the 13th, Alice Hardy (Adrienne King), the only survivor of the Crystal Lake murders, is killed by an unknown assailant.

Five years later, a group of young adults have come to Crystal Lake to attend a counselor training center that has been set up near the now-condemned Camp Crystal Lake. While some counselors are in town on their way to the facility, Crazy Ralph appears and tells the counselors to turn back, as the young counselors five years ago did not heed his warning. Paul Holt, the leader of the group, explains how camp counseling is a serious job, and that the main danger in the area is bears. That night, around a campfire, Paul tells the people about how Jason Voorhees drowned in the same lake which their training area also bounds, how his mother was found to be the infamous murderer of "Camp Blood," that Alice survived only to disappear shortly thereafter and that some of the local residents believe Jason is still alive and viciously protects the area around Crystal Lake. When the counselors seem into the story, they are shocked by a man with a spear, but it only turns out to be Ted in a monster mask and Paul claims that Jason is dead.

While Paul and his assistant, Ginny Field, are seen making out, Crazy Ralph is standing by a window, and is suddenly killed by a prowler using a garotte. The next day, two of the counselors, Sandra and Jeff, sneak away to Camp Crystal Lake, which is now in disrepair. As they find a dead animal that they assume is Terry's dog, they are startled by a police officer who catches them trespassing. The cop returns the two counselors to camp, where Paul only recommends a light punishment. However, when driving, the officer sees a masked man dart out in front of his squad car, running in the direction of the off-limits Camp Crystal Lake. The cop chases after the masked man to arrest him as well, only to lose him and go into an old run down cabin. The officer then sees a horrifying sight. It is not shown to the viewer as the prowler who killed Crazy Ralph also murders the officer from behind with a hammer claw.

After getting to know one another and participating in some training exercises (which consist of dancing, jogging through the woods, swimming and a cookout), the majority of the trainees leave the campsite to party in town. The six counselors remaining, which consists of Vickie, Mark, Sandra, Jeff, Terry, and Scott are soon stalked and murdered one by one.

Terry goes for a skinny dip and Scott steals her clothes only to be caught by an animal trap while running from her. She takes her clothes back and promises to cut Scott down. As Terry goes into her cabin to retrieve her knife, Scott has his throat slit by the prowler. When Terry returns, she sees that Scott is dead and attempts to flee, but she too is killed by the prowler.

Back at the cabin, Sandra and Jeff go upstairs while Vickie goes to her cabin to freshen up. Mark waits for her to return but eventually goes outside in the storm to investigate, where the prowler hits him in the face with a machete, killing him and sending his body and wheelchair down the outside steps. The prowler enters the cabin and goes upstairs, taking the spear left by one of the counselors earlier. He enters the room where Sandra and Jeff are on the bed and impales them both before they realize he is there. Vickie returns and finds the prowler in Sandra and Jeff's room, along with their corpses. She is stabbed in the leg before the prowler plunges the knife in her chest.

Eventually Ginny and Paul return to the camp, and at the same time the killer is dragging the slain bodies of Sandra, Jeff and Vickie down the stairs. Ginny and Paul discover the lights are not working in the main cabin and sheets on an upstairs bed appear to be covered in blood. Paul is attacked by a figure whose head is covered with a burlap sack as Ginny screams and runs. On the way she discovers the corpse of Crazy Ralph and jumps out of the nearby window.

After a lengthy chase, Ginny stumbles upon the run-down cabin and enters. In the back room, she discovers a makeshift altar holding the severed head of Pamela Voorhees. Littered around the altar are several bodies of the recently slain victims as well as the rotten corpse of Alice. The killer is identified as Jason Voorhees, who has survived his drowning as a boy and has been living in the woods as a hermit all of his life. Ginny dons Mrs. Voorhees' sweater and deceives Jason into believing that she is his mother (although Jason wises up when he sees his mother's severed head). As Paul appears and wrestles with Jason, Ginny slams a machete through Jason's shoulder. Paul and Ginny retreat back to their cabin believing Jason is dead. Terry's pet dog, Muffin, comes to the door and as Ginny calls to Muffin to come, an unmasked Jason leaps through the window and begins to pull Ginny out. Ginny wakes up while being placed in an ambulance saying "Paul, Paul, where's Paul?" It is unknown what Paul's fate was.

Re: Friday the 13th

This is really such an amazing horror movie. I love to watch horror movies & Friday The 13th is one of my favorite horror movie..

Re: Friday the 13th

A maligned review, perhaps?  Maligned in that he tells only the story and doesn't offer an opinion on it.

That, or the dude has the mental capacity if a popcorn fart.  I pray for the former.  Too many popcorn-fart brained people out there as it is.

Re: Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is  really thriller flick.I really enjoyed the movie.It is amazing

Re: Friday the 13th

yeah i have to agree , this was the really very horrified movie !

Re: Friday the 13th

How many banned people can be in one Thread?  Or were these the same person?  Just pondering.

Re: Friday the 13th

Interesting posts... ???

Re: Friday the 13th

I love Friday the 13th series,and C.J Graham is my favourite Jason Voorhees,second favourite is Kane Hodder.

Re: Friday the 13th

Heh heh.  First time I've come across this thread.  It's like the 'auto-ban' thread.  To be somewhat on topic, I'd say I probably like Part 2 the best.

Re: Friday the 13th

I have to disagree.. part 7 was the best!

The sleeping bag kill makes the movie smile

Re: Friday the 13th

Well hard to argue with that scene.  I do like the spoof of it in 'Jason X', too.

Re: Friday the 13th

Part 7 was great.  It was also the last good one.  Even with psychic powers it was still grounded.  After that, all down hill.

Re: Friday the 13th

Part 6: Jason Lives is my favorite installment in the series.
Don't care much for part one, although I do appreciate the film for kickstarting that 80's slasher craze. Part 2 is better. Jason X I liked, Part 4 (if I remember correctly) I liked a lot too.

I wish I could remember what happened in all the Fridays...I need to get the whole series on DVD and give them all a watch again. But from what I remember, all in all, Friday the 13th is a fun series. Even the bad installments were at least fun.

Re: Friday the 13th

I liked Friday the 13th Part 2 better when it was called Twitch of the Death Nerve.

Re: Friday the 13th

I can't make out the meaning of this thread but I do like part 2.

We totally agree on this.  My fave too.  I just love the atmosphere of these movies.  Isolation.  Woods.  Camps.  I get why people don't like them, but I grew up with these and they are fun.
