Friday the 13th (1980) 
Friday the 13th review
3/4 stars

In 1958 Camp Crystal Lake a couple gets murdered mysteriously. It then cuts to Friday to 13th present day. Annie (Robbi Morgan) hitchhikes to Crystal Lake and is advised by a truck driver for the lake being cursed. A girl gets slit on the neck in the woods. A group of friends enjoy the lake namely Alice (Adrienne King), Bill (Harry Crosby), Marcie (Jeannine Taylor), Jack (Kevin Bacon), Brenda (Laurie Bartram), and Ned (Mark Nelson). A police officer named Dorf searches for Ralph with the group. More people get killed without disclosing the killer.

The score sounds eerily familiar, much like Jaws and Psycho with a touch of echo for more spookiness. So many surprising scenes with beautiful cinematography and authentic performances around. Betsy Palmer really did a great job in here. The making of featurette was interesting and it seems like the originator for future Scream or horror flicks. Friday the 13th is one of the pioneers of horror pictures based on certain elements that scare the audiences, this reviewer feels it could have been better if the pace of the story was faster.
