Friday the 13th is a veteran of "slasher" type horror movies. There is not much to say about the movie other than the storyline is based on the series of murders and that we don't see anything other than the hands and feet of the culprit before the last ten minutes of the movie.
By analyzing Kevin Bacon's performance in one of his first roles, it is hard to believe that he is now one of Hollywood's biggest stars.
The final revelation is surprising. The special effects are good, considering when the movie was made. The characters all have an ugly face and therefore, we are not saddened by their deaths. This movie may not be very satisfying but, just like its predecessor Halloween, it has inspired many "slasher" movies.
