Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th 20, May

4.5/5

FRIDAY THE 13TH is one of the most successful horror franchises of all time. It dominated the 80s horror movie phase and was one of the first series to become a staple of video stores (which for younger viewers were magical places to get movies before Amazon or streaming delivered them straight to your house). It began as a shameless cash-in on the success of John Carpenter's Halloween but gradually evolved into a more successful spin-off that pretty much all slasher films imitate to this day.
