About the Movie

Terror and suspense abound in this 24-hour nightmare of blood. Camp Crystal Lake has been shuttered for over 20 years due to several vicious and unsolved murders. The camp's new owner and seven young counselors are readying the property for re-opening despite warnings of a "death curse" by local residents. The curse proves true on Friday the 13th as one by one each of the counselors is stalked by a violent killer. This film is widely acclaimed for its horrifying and creative murder sequences.

Fresh: For all its shoddiness, the film manages, just barely, to achieve its ignoble goals -- it delivers what it promises. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The whole film is one of the best arguments for resuming movie censorship to come along in years. – Joseph Litsch, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: You really have to wonder what exactly made the Friday the 13th series so wildly successful. – Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine, Mar 3, 2015
