With everything from horny camp counselors to gory deaths. The story line was great! But one flaw was presenting who the killer was. No clues at all on to who the killer was at the beginning. All we knew was some crazy killer coming out to kill people. Not until the end of the movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies Expand

It's a cult icon, it has loyal fans, but it's nothing special, although it has given birth to a terrible franchise, which has haunted the cinema since this time. This movie does not have any difference from other camping slasher movies: an haunted camp, an ancient crime, a murderer with a large knife and a mask, naughty teenagers almost asking to be murdered in the bloodiest ways... everything is quite common in slasher films. The victims deserve to die, the murderer scares no one and there is not much mystery here. The cast is no use talking because it is poor and miserable. It's a classic? Maybe... but it's a bad film and I would not regret if it never existed. Expand

Plot already worn out, if there's any. I can understand the FX not being at their best because of the year it was filmed, but the acting?! It's terrible.

Friday the 13th is very dumb and disgusting movie. Yes, it's classic, but that doesn't make Friday 13 a good movie.

Yes, it's classic, but that doesn't make Friday 13 a good movie. Unlike Halloween (1978) and Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), this film does not create its own unique atmosphere, does not bring something new to the horror genre. This movie is just boring. Expand
